Ran out of frosting? Don’t waste time and money running to the store.

Marshmallows, if you have them handy, make a creative and easy icing fix.

Dip one side of your marshmallows (mini ones work best) in water so they don’t slide off, then plop a few on each cookie when they have three to five minutes left to bake. 

Once they start to melt but aren’t too runny, take the cookies out and spread your “homemade” frosting with a spoon.

Make sure the marshmallows don’t turn brown, or else they won’t spread easily.
