I stumbled across this fantastic DIY project from Coupon Clipping Cook and Craving Some Creativity that would make for a wonderful (and budget-friendly) idea for edible wedding favors. Marshmallows have always been a favorite of mine but these lovelies have definitely been taken to the next level. A perfect starter project for you DIY newbies!

1. Let’s check out the ingredients
For the candy coating and toppings:
For the marshmallows:
2. Here’s how to make it
Insert a lollipop stick into each of the marshmallows stopping about 1/8 inch under the top of the marshmallow.
Put each of the topping ingredients into a separate small bowl or plate.
The colorful candies are such a nice contrast against the white of the marshmallow.
Layout the sheets of wax paper on a large platter or two large plates.
In separate bowls, melt the candy coating in a microwave in 30-second bursts making sure to stir every 30 seconds.
Roll the sides of a marshmallow in either the vanilla or chocolate candy coating. Have a small spoon handy to smooth out the coating on the marshmallow if it’s too thick in a particular area.
Then dip the top side of the marshmallow in the candy coating.
If you would like a multi-colored coating, use a spoon to drizzle the opposite color coating over the fully coated marshmallow (if you have multi-color coated marshmallows you may want to put the candy topping on just the top of the marshmallow so the multi-colored drizzles show up nicely on the sides).
Dip the sides and top of the coated marshmallow into any one or more of the toppings.
