Forky Toy Story marshmallows

Have you seen Toy Story 4 yet? I have not, I’m afraid. I need to catch my youngest up on Toy Story 1 through 3 first. But I am aware of the new, existential-crisis character, Forky, the spork-turned-toy thanks to Bonnie’s Kindergarten crafting. If you’re hosting a Toy Story party and you’re looking for some fun food ideas, these Forky Toy Story marshmallows are pretty dang easy to make.

how to make Forky marshmallows

you will need: 

  • marshmallows
  • lollipop sticks 
  • white candy melts 
  • EZ Thins (optional, to help with the candy melt consistency)
  • Styrofoam block
  • candy eyes (regular size and mini size
  • red pipe cleaners
  • red and blue decorating bags with icing (see below)

supplies for Forky Toy Story marshmallows

where to find supplies: 

You can find lollipop sticks, candy melts, EZ Thins, candy eyes, Styrofoam bock, and pipe cleaners at the craft store, or check out the links above. 

 

red and blue icing:

Here, I prepared decorating bags with couplers and size 2 decorating tips. I made my royal icing and tinted some with blue food coloring and some with red food coloring. I filled the bags and closed with rubber bands. However, as a shortcut, you may find small tubes of decorating icing in the supermarket or craft store you can use instead. 

 

candy melts vs white chocolate 

If you prefer to use white chocolate instead of white candy melts, that works just as well! I prefer candy melts because I find them easier to melt and work with.

what to do: 

Hold a marshmallow, pressing gently to flatten a bit. Snip three triangles from the top of the marshmallow. TIP: Rub a bit of shortening on the tip of the scissors for easier cutting. Skewer each marshmallow with a lollipop stick.

Place candy melts (I melt one cup at a time) in a microwave-safe bowl or jar. Choose a jar that is deep rather than wide and shallow, for easier dipping. If you like, add a pinch of EZ Thins. Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir, using the residual heat to melt the candy. If needed, microwave at additional 15 second intervals. 

Dip a marshmallow into the melted candy and tap the stick on the side of the jar to remove excess candy. Prop in a Stryofoam block to dry.

To decorate each marshmallow, use a toothpick to add dabs of leftover candy melts on the back of a regular size candy eye and a mini eye and attach to the marshmallows. Pipe a red eyebrow and blue mouth. Let set.
