    Step 4

    With a pair of scissors, snip off the corners of the marshmallow tops to form a mushroom cap. Cut the area below the cap to form a stem. (You'll need to rinse your scissors often — cut marshmallows are gooey.) Dust marshmallow mushrooms with cocoa powder.

    Step 5

    Drill holes through all of the candy kabob pieces. (Yes, power tools are allowed in the kitchen as long as you clean them first!) Use a drill bit slightly larger than your wooden kabob skewers. Again, you will probably need to rinse off your drill bit often because the gummi and taffy items are super sticky. The marshmallow mushrooms do not drill very well. It's best to just poke a hole in the stem and push them onto the wooden skewer when you assemble the kabobs.
