Marshmallow Polar Bears - two finished bears next to a cup of chocolate with a floating, melting polar bearI love marshmallows, so naturally I have all available sizes in my kitchen. This is a fun edible craft that uses three sizes of marshmallows to make polar bears that can be eaten as a snack, or used to float on top of hot chocolate. This is a great all-ages project!


Total Time: 30 minutes


  • extra large marshmallows
  • regular marshmallows
  • mini marshmallows
  • meltable white chocolate
  • chopstick
  • brown M&Ms
  • black gel icing pen
