Step #1 – Pour the gelatin into a plastic baggie.

Step #2 – Measure water (doesn’t have to be exact) into a container suitable for dunking your marshmallows.

Step #3 – Take a marshmallow and dunk it into the water. Shake off the excess.

Note: Do NOT soak the marshmallow, just get it wet enough for the gelatin to stick.

Step #4 – Put the marshmallow in the baggie holding the gelatin.

Step #5 – Give it a good shake until the marshmallow is well-coated. Set aside.

Step #6 – Repeat step #5 until you have 12 coated marshmallows.

Step #7 – Use your skewer and build your Canadian Flag – 1 red marshmallow, 1 white marshmallow, 1 red marshmallow.

Store these in zipper bags to keep them fresh!

Enjoy your sweet Canada Day treat!
