Ready for some super easy Christmas marshmallow craft recipes?

Marshmallow crafts are SO much fun.

They also tend to be super easy.

So Christmas marshmallow craft recipes come high up on my list of things to keep the kids occupied in the run-up to Christmas.

Christmas and marshmallows, what a fabulous combination…

Marshmallows are a big thing in our family at Christmas.

There is nothing better than toasting marshmallows on an open fire. Well, nothing that is except using marshmallows to make gorgeous Christmas treats.

But as with everything to do with cooking and baking in my world, I simply don’t have the brain bandwidth to cope with complicated recipes.

This is especially true in the run up to Christmas, when there simply aren’t enough hours in the day.

Which is why I LOVE these brilliantly easy to follow Christmas marshmallow recipes.

Take a peak at the curation of Christmas themed marshmallow recipes below.

The criteria for the roundup is that each recipe is easy to follow and wherever possible is one that you can do with your kids or leave older kids to do by themselves.
