DIY Marshmallow Snowflakes


Perfect for your favorite hot chocolate, these marshmallow snowflakes are easy to make and yummy to eat. These marshmallow snowflakes are easy to make with young kids and will brighten anyone’s Christmas season.

Sometimes a cup of hot chocolate by itself is boring.

And sometimes all you need is a little something to give your favorite drink a new look.

This is why I absolutely LOVE these marshmallow snowflakes. This simple tutorial is so easy to put together that even your little ones can make these delightful treats (with a little help from their favorite adult).

Supplies Needed:

  • 18 small marshmallows
  • 1 large marshmallow
  • 9 toothpicks
  • A pair of scissors


Place your marshmallows in separate bowls (one for the large marshmallow and one for the small marshmallows). You’ll need 18 small marshmallows for every 1 large marshmallow to make your marshmallow snowflake.

Cut 3 of your toothpicks in half so you end up with a total of 12 pieces (6 long and 6 half).

On your regular size marshmallow pieces, place two small marshmallows.

Shop gifts under $5 from Dollar Tree

One marshmallow needs to go in the middle and the other on the tip.

Do this for all of the long toothpicks (6 total).

Place one small marshmallow on the tip of all the shorter toothpicks.

Repeat for all six of the smaller toothpicks.

Grab your large marshmallow and start placing your smaller marshmallows around the larger marshmallow going clockwise. Start with your two-marshmallow toothpick, then one, then two, etc.

I inserted my smaller marshmallows in the center (of the side) of the larger marshmallow.

You’ll want to place all 12 toothpicks into the larger marshmallow until you make your marshmallow snowflake!

You can make dozens of these marshmallow snowflakes as Christmas gifts in a hot chocolate packet. Or you can simply enjoy them yourself.

  1. How fun and adorable are these?! I am one zillion percent craft-challenged, but even I should be able to do these! Nonetheless, I pinned them to my “Crafts For My Daughters To Do” board. 😉 What a sweet site you have here…headed over to find you on Facebook now…stopping by from #MommyMoments! 🙂
