Expert Tips

You can decorate with colorful sugar or edible markers, like Betty Crocker's™ decorating markers.

During the Day of the Dead celebration, we are not only reminded of loved ones that are no longer with us, but we are also given an opportunity to enjoy delicious dishes. Traditionally, an altar is assembled with flowers and pictures in honor of lost loved ones along with offerings like pan de muerto. One way to involve the kids in the celebration is by preparing some dishes for the celebration. These sugar skulls made with cereal and marshmallows are so simple to prepare that you can have them ready in about 15 minutes so the little ones can decorate.

Directions

  • 1 Melt the butter over very low heat and add the marshmallows.
  • 2 Stir constantly until the marshmallows have melted and mixture is consistent.
  • 3 Add the cereal and keep mixing to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • 4 Serve over parchment paper and apply pressure with a fork until you achieve the desired thickness.
  • 5 Cut each portion out with a skull shaped cookie cutter or use a knife.
  • 6 Decorate with sugar or chocolate sprinkles.
