Marshmallow Teacup Cookies

I am making myself take a break from housework, packing, and planning to sit down for a few minutes, so I thought I would share another recipe from the birthday party yesterday.   I found this idea through a google search, and I think it might have originated (at least online) here.  I modified the recipe to be able to use ingredients I already had on hand.  The girls and I had so much fun and they were so fast and easy to make!

Marshmallow Teacup Cookies


Round Cookies – We used Trader Joe’s Triple Gingersnaps
1 Package Marshmallows
Cookie Icing
Cocoa and White Candy Melts


Dip the top of each marshmallow into some melted Cocoa Candy Melts and then into the sprinkles.

Cut all lifesavers in half.  Dip the ends of each lifesaver half into melted White Candy Melts and attach one lifesaver “handle” to the side of each Marshmallow.  Hold for a second or two to make sure it adheres to the marshmallow.

Cover the bottom/flattest side of each cookie with a little bit of cookie icing.    (We used Trader Joe’s Triple Gingersnap Cookies.   I had purchased a box of Vanilla Wafers, but they were too rounded on the top and kept tipping over.   Ours were a little too small, but they worked… A slightly larger sugar cookie, that is mostly flat on the top would have been perfect.)  

Place a marshmallow teacup in the middle of each cookie, pressing down lightly.

I think they turned out looking more like mugs of Hot Cocoa, but the kids all loved them and I thought they were a perfect addition to the Tea Party birthday menu!  They would also be a fun addition to the Little Flower Tea Parties.

    Those are so cute–I just had to pin them to my Pinterest board for future use. I have a daughter who would love to make them! Thank you for sharing your creativity.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
