I love Halloween!  And I love the opportunity to share anything Halloween related with all of you, so I thought these Halloween Frankenpops would be perfect.  I am definitely going to try these for my daughter's birthday party this weekend--they're so cute!


Here's a cute video with step-by-step instructions to make these adorably spooky Halloween treats!  Check out the recipe below, courtesy of The Kitchen Explorers from PBS Parent.

A quick and easy marshmallow treat recipe for Halloween. Made with chocolate candy coated marshmallows, making these treats make for a great Halloween activity.

Ingredients

    • 1 – 16 ounces dark green candy coating
    • 2 tablespoons white candy coating
    • 2 tablespoons black candy coating
    • 1/4 cup purple candy coating
    • 1 bag large marshmallows
    • special equipment: 36 lollipop sticks

Instructions

    • Melt the dark green candy coatings in the microwave in thirty second intervals, stirring after each time until the chocolate is smooth.
    • Dip a lollipop stick ¼” in and then into a marshmallow ¾ of the way through.
    • Dip marshmallows into the melted coating, turning the marshmallow as it coats.
    • Tilt the marshmallow over a cup and gently tap the stick until excess coating drips off.
    • Allow the pops to dry by sticking the end of the stick into a foam block.
    • As the pops dry, make the eyes by piping small 1/8-1/4-inch circles of melted white coating.  Finish the eyes by adding a small speck of melted black coating to the center of the white "eye balls."  Allow the eyes to harden before using.
    • Once the green coated pops are hard, dip only the top of each marshmallow in the melted purple coating.  Using a toothpick, add texture to each pop's hair.  Allow the hair to dry before adding facial features.
    • Add a little dot of chocolate where the eyeballs will be placed.  Using the melted coating as glue, add two eyeballs to every pop.
    • Using an edible black ink marker or melted black coating which is in a piping bag with a tiny opening, pipe a decorate scar and mouth on each pop.
    • Allow the pops to harden before eating.
