Coloured (Edible) Marshmallow Dough

(inspired by My Buddies & I)



  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (or other high temperature tolerant oil)
  • 1 one pound bag of large marshmallows
  • 3 - 4 cups of cornstarch
  • Food colouring


  1. Over medium heat, melt coconut oil in a pot.
  2. Once liquid, add the entire bag of marshmallows. Stir frequently until marshmallows are completely melted.
  3. Working quickly, divide the marshmallow mixture into four bowls (approximately 1 cup per bowl) and stir 3 drops of liquid food colouring into each bowl.
  4. Add 3/4 of a cup of cornstarch to each bowl to start. Using a spoon, stir vigorously until marshmallow goo and cornstarch begin to come together. Use your hands to knead in the extra cornstarch once the dough is cool enough to be handled.
  5. If needed, add an extra ¼ cup of cornstarch to each bowl to firm up the dough. However, be careful not to add too much as the dough will become too hard.
