It’s October first and that means Halloween is just 30 days away! This year Halloween will have an extra hour of fun thanks to Daylight Savings Time, it will feature a full moon, and it lands on the weekend. We have the trifecta of awesomeness! Gearing towards this amazing event I have decided to share some of my favorite Halloween treats, crafts, and activities, some old and some new.
To celebrate the start of October, I thought I would share a fun marshmallow recipe the whole family can enjoy, Frankenstein’s Marshmallow Pops inspired from the movie Hotel Transylvania 2. I especially like this recipe because the pops are easy to make and require very few ingredients. It also has no baking time and only requires the melting and cooling of chocolate. Another reason I enjoy this recipe is because I don’t have to have any decorating talents. As long as I can dip a marshmallow, I can make these Frankenstein’s Marshmallow pops. Use the recipe below to make your own and show off your decorating skills *wink*.
Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops Recipe
A Delicios spooky marshmallow pop.
NOTE: Adults should complete all the tasks dealing with melting/heating
- Green Candy Melts
- Marshmallows (The bigger the better)
- Small Pretzel Rods
- Semisweet chocolate chips
- Edible red and black markers
- Candy Eyes
- Lollipop sticks
- Melt the green candy melts in a microwave or double boiler according to the package directions until they are fully melted.
- Push the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows. Then dip the Marshmallows into the melted candy, turning to cover them completely. Stand the marshmallows upright in a glass filled with uncooked rice or oatmeal and place the glass in the fridge until the chocolate has cooled and hardened slightly, about 5 min
- Melt the chocolate chipes in a microwave or double broiler until smooth. Dip the tops of each of the coated marshmallows in the chocolate to form the hair. Using a toothpick, drag the choclae downntoward the base of the marshmallow to form spikes of hair. Return the marshma;;pws to the fridge until the chocolate has hardened, about 5 min
- Break the ends off of the pretzel rods to form the small (about 1/8 inch) “bolts” for Frankenstein’s neck. Carefully push one piece of pretzel into each side of the matchmallow about 1/3 of the way from the bottom
- Using a toothpick and the remaining melted chocolate, dab teo small dots of chocolate onto each marshmallow and press on the candy eyeballs
- Using the black edible marker, draw on a mouth, and then using the red edible marker, draw on a laceration on Grankenstein’s forehead. Enjoy the marshmallow pops immediately or store them in an air-tight contained in the fridge until ready to serve.
