Cut each marshmallow in half around the middle (short way) to make two round marshmallow pieces.
Using a piping tip approximately 1/2 inch wide, firmly press the narrow tip end into each marshmallow half to cut out the middle section of the marshmallow, making a ring. (You can also use any other tool you have to punch out a hole in the center, such as a spoon handle or a knife).
Make the candy coated marshmallows one color at a time. Place the red candy melts in a small bowl and microwave as per package directions. Stir until melted.
Use your hand to adjust the shape of the ring if needed to make it more circular. Place the marshmallow ring on a fork. Use a spoon and spoon the red candy melt over the marshmallow until it is completely covered. Tap the fork against the edge of the bowl to remove the extra candy melt.
Place the candy coated ring on parchment paper by pushing the marshmallow off the fork with the spoon. Sprinkle with the red sprinkles immediately (before the candy hardens).
Repeat with the remaining red candy melt, approximately 5 or 6 rings. When all of the red marshmallows are complete, move the dried marshmallows to a plate or separate area. Pour the extra sugar that fell on the parchment paper back into the sugar bottle. Clean off any remaining red candy or sprinkles from the parchment before starting your next color (or use a new piece).
Repeat the entire process with the black, yellow, green, and blue candy melts and sugars.
Arrange the candy marshmallows into the Olympic rings for serving (blue, yellow, black, green, red).
