Marshmallow Squisharoos Recipe

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.
