DIY Marshmallow Cupid’s Arrow for Your Next Cup of Hot Cocoa


Hot cocoa just got a whole lot cuter, because it was hit by a marshmallow arrow. I’ve had an obsession with cupid’s arrows lately, but this one pulls on my heartstrings because…

  1.  It’s cute. 
  2.  It’s yummy. 
  3.  It’s easy.


Hot cocoa and marshmallows go together like peanut butter and jelly, so a DIY cupid’s arrow made of marshmallows is in order for everyone making a cup of hot chocolate this winter. Make this for a loved one this Valentine’s Day or any time to warm up during the chilly months.





Step 1: Use the heart shaped Wilton cookie cutter (outside the red cutter) to cut mini heart marshmallows.

Step 2: Use sharp scissors to cut a “feathered” look on a separate marshmallow. Just leave space in the middle, so a toothpick can go through it and hold it in place.

Step 3: Add two heart marshmallows to one end of the toothpick.

Step 4: Add the “feather” to the other end.

Step 5: Place the marshmallow cupid’s arrow on top of a cup of hot cocoa. The arrow makes for a tasty stir stick! Sip and enjoy!
