Yield

Makes 3 cups of each flavor icing

This recipes makes 3 cups of each flavor of frosting, if that ends up being more than you need to Neapolitan a few boxes of crispy marshmallow squares, you can save the leftover icings for dipping other store-bought baked goods like brownies or doughnuts. The idea is to make the Neapolitan Icing flavors, then dip to your heart's content. These icings will start to stiffen as they sit. They will be good for 1/2 hour after you mix them up. If you want to make them in advance and use them later, place them in a bowl and lay a damp paper towel directly on the surface. And then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature. If necessary, whisk in an additional 1-2 Tbsp. hot water to recapture proper consistency.

How to Make It

  1. To prepare strawberry icing, place powdered sugar, jam, meringue powder, and vanilla in bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer. With mixer running on medium speed, gradually add 6 tablespoons of the water. Beat until well combined, about 3 minutes, stopping to scrape sides as necessary. If necessary, add up to 1 more tablespoon water, and beat until desired consistency is reached. Set aside.

  2. To prepare vanilla icing, place powdered sugar, meringue powder, and vanilla in bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer. With mixer running on medium speed, gradually add 7 tablespoons of the water. Beat until well combined, about 3 minutes, stopping to scrape sides as necessary. If necessary, add up to 1 more tablespoon water, and beat until desired consistency is reached.

  3. To assemble, place an offset spatula in hot water for 3 to 5 seconds. Dip right edge of 1 chocolate crispy marshmallow square (about 1/3 of treat) into vanilla icing, and smooth edges using warm offset spatula; wipe spatula clean. Dip left edge of the square (about 1/3 of treat) into strawberry frosting and smooth edges with offset spatula; wipe spatula clean. Transfer to a wire wrack. Repeat procedure with remaining treats. Let sit at room temperature until icing is set, about 30 minutes.
