Let's Make It
Reserve 1/4 cup icing; cover tightly and reserve for later use. Spoon 1/2-cup portions of remaining icing into 3 separate bowls. Tint with food colorings as desired to create 3 different shades.
Use plastic forks to dip nuts, 1 at a time, into tinted icings, letting excess icing drip off nuts before placing in single layer on wire rack. Let stand 6 hours or until icing is firm.
Thread large needle with string; use to pierce through marshmallows. Attach nuts to marshmallows with reserved icing to resemble strand of holiday lights. Place in shallow pan; let stand 2 hours or until icing is firm.
Where to Find Royal Icing
Look for royal icing mix at your area craft store, then prepare as directed on package.
Dipped nuts can dry on wire rack overnight before attaching to marshmallows as directed.
Keeping it Safe
While this fun holiday treat is edible and safe to eat, it should not be consumed after hanging on a Christmas tree or using elsewhere as a holiday decoration. Remove nuts from string before serving.
