Note:

The Russian name for marshmallows is “Zefir”, and they are usually shaped like a meringue.
But the adapted method is the same.

Ingredients:

1 lb pack marshmallows
2 lb sugar powder
2-3 drops of food coloring, lemon juice, or water

Method:

Place the marshmallows in a microwave-safe dish (or you can use an oven).

Sprinkle them with water, juice, or liquid food coloring, cover with clear wrap, and place in a microwave for 20-30 sec., or until they turn mild and sticky.

After that, stir them with a sugar powder adding powder by tablespoons.

Sprinkle a board with the sugar powder, and shape the decorations on it adding powder when necessary because it is still sticky.

Let cool, and decorate.
