Marshmallow Squisharoo are a fun marshmallow treat that is easy to make with your children.
This recipe comes from the Magic of JELL-O Cookbook. So easy to make – just place some JELL-O mix in a plastic baggie, add the marshmallows, and shake away! The flavors remind me of eating a marshmallow peep. We made these Marshmallow Squisharoos with my 5-year old grandson and it was easy for him to assemble.

- 1 cup cold water
- 5 (3-ounce) packages flavored JELL-O (different flavor varieties such as lemon, lime, cherry, orange, blueberry, etc.)
- 1 (16-ounce) bag large marshmallows
- 5 (1-quart size) re-sealable plastic bags
Pour the cold water into a bowl and set aside.
Pour 1/4 cup flavored dry JELL-O into a re-sealable plastic bag and close the seal. Repeat for each JELL-O flavor until each flavor is placed into a separate plastic bags and sealed.
Dip 2 to 3 marshmallows into the bowl of water, then place moisten marshmallows inside one of the plastic bags with the flavored JELL-O mixture. Seal the bag and shake several times until the marshmallows are coated with the flavored JELL-O. Remove colored marshmallows from the bag and place into a bowl or on a plate.
Repeat these steps with different flavored JELL-O until you have a large variety of colorful marshmallows to eat and enjoy.
TIP: If desired, cut marshmallows into fun shapes by flattening slightly and cutting with small cutters.
