Happy Valentine's Day | Super cute last minute I LOVE YOU gift | Marshmallow on a String

Ok, so I died a little when I saw these super cute marshmallow "I Love you's" on a string! They are great for dunking in a nice cup of cocoa.  If you are a bit of a procrastinator, like me ;) these are so easy to whip up even I can do it ;) I don't usually go for any DIY projects but this one is so sweet!

you will need:
baker's twine
tapestry needle
red cardstock
edible writers (optional)

what to do:
Take a piece of baker's twine about 8 to 10 inches long. Thread the tapestry needle. Make a double or triple knot in one end of the twine and snip off the excess.

Grease the needle with shortening (I use Crisco).

Thread the twine through a marshmallow. Pull the marshmallow until the knot hits the base of the marshmallow (don't pull too hard or you'll pull the knot through the marshmallow). Pull the needle off the twine.

Cut out two hearts from the paper and glue, staple or tape at the end of the twine.

If desired, draw a message on the marshmallow with the edible writers. Dunk in hot cocoa (be warned, edible ink will run in funny ways when the marshmallow hits the cocoa) and discard string when marshmallow dissolves.
