Easy Marshmallow Snails

Easy Marshmallow Snails is a recipe from . I made the snails using lime jello but the poor snails did not have any antennaes. The picture in the front is made with grape jello and the one on the left is with raspberry jello but presented in different ways.

1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Brand Gelatin, any flavor
1/2 cup warm water
1-3/4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows, divided
24 pieces red string licorice (1 in.)
1/4 cup ready-to-spread vanilla frosting


MIX gelatin and water in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1-1/2 min.; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.

SET aside 12 of the marshmallows.

Add remaining marshmallows to gelatin; stir until well blended. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. or until marshmallows are partially melted. Stir with wire whisk until marshmallows are completely melted.

Pour into 9-in. square pan sprayed with cooking spray.

REFRIGERATE 45 min. or until set.

Run sharp knife around edges of pan to loosen gelatin layer from pan. Starting at one short end, roll up gelatin layer tightly. Cut into 12 (3/4-inch-thick) strips. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to decorate. UNROLL each about 1 inch. Stand 1 of the reserved marshmallows on unrolled portion of each spiral for the "snail's body," securing with frosting. Insert 2 pieces of licorice into each marshmallow for "antennae," securing with additional frosting, if desired.


To Double Prepare gelatin mixture as directed, doubling all ingredients. Pour into 13x9-inch pan. Refrigerate as directed. For ease in handling, cut gelatin mixture in half crosswise before rolling up. Roll up each half separately, making a total of 2 rolls. Cut each roll into 12 slices. Decorate as directed.


Makes 24 servings
