I have seen this before. I looked at several tutorials and the link i am sending is really great. Hope it will help you. You can also do as this tutorial says, but use dusting powders to achieve the look also. make sense? some others i looked at , didn,t even look real.

Thank you for this link, icer101! I don't understand what is meant by "cut the marshmallows in half and stick them together using their natural stickiness." It sounds like you just cut them and put them back together to look as though they've never been cut, but that can't be right. What am I missing?

Ok, by handling them, cutting them in half(some people cut into thirds). This takes away the look of it being a m/m, The stickiness of them holds them together. I haven,t done this, i used real popcorn in my pic.using m/m (melted) But i see the vision in the link i sent and the one the o/p sent. I like the (sinzing) (sp?) of the link i sent. Look so real. hthYou can add another ,maybe half the m/m, along with the pieces cut on some of them too. Again, handling them helps the look .
