It’s a Halloween, so let’s make these edible, fun and a bit of scary marshmallow pops Frankensteins. Your kids will love to create their own trick or treat marshmallow pops and share them with their friends.
Super easy Halloween marshmallow pops
When we watched with my daughter on YouTube some videos for Halloween treats this year, we saw these cute mini marshmallow monsters and we right away fall in love with this Halloween treat.
Not only it’s super easy to be made by kids, it is also nut free, so kids can also bring it to school for their Halloween parties or as a snack around Halloween. You might say Frankenstein is so scary for kids, but don’t worry, this a little cuties with some nice spooky smile.
We are going to use only super yummy ingredients. And it is marshmallow, white and milk chocolate, heavy cream, few drops of green and black food coloring,pop sticks, piece of styrofoam or small pumpkin to hold the pop sticks, 2 small ceramic bowls (to melt the chocolate in), plastic Ziploc and toothpick.
Gather all the ingredients for easy process
I get all my stuff needed for this recipe on the table, before I start. I like having all ingredients and tools on hand. It’s not fun, when you have to run off the table to get this and that. Especially when working with melted chocolate, you want to work fast and have everything on the table.
We are going to get ready first, the marshmallows. I like to place them on a baking sheet covered by parchment paper and I stick the pop stick right in the middle of the marshmallow. But you can use a plate, where you can place the marshmallow.
First melt 1 cup of white chocolate with the heavy cream, once it’s melted, add green food coloring. Depends on what food coloring will you be using. But if you go with Wilton food colors, then just one or two drops should be enough. If you like a darker shade of green, add more.
Once you get your desired color, you dip your marshmallow in the green chocolate and place it in the Styrofoam or special cake pop stand. The chocolate needs to dry now, so let these dry for about an hour. If you need to speed it up, place them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, the chocolate should harden by then.
What do you need for Marshmallow pops
- White and milk chocolate chips
- Cake pop sticks
- Styrofoam or cake pop stand
- Green & black food coloring
- Few tablespoons of heavy cream
- Ziploc bags
How to decorate marshmallow pops as Frankensteins
Now you have to melt the milk chocolate, same ways as the white chocolate and add 2-3 drops of black food coloring. I used Ziploc for piping the chocolate, but feel free to use decorative plastic bags for chocolate if you have it. Place the chocolate in Ziploc and start covering the head of the marshmallow (Frankenstein). Pipe also some strings of hair on the sides.
Let harden the milk chocolate, and in the meanwhile melt another 1/2 cup of white chocolate with heavy cream. Once the chocolate is well melted and smooth, place int in a Ziploc bag. Cut a very small hole in the corner of the bag, and you are ready to decorate. Start with eyes, pipe little drops.
Use the rest of the milk chocolate to finish decorating the black eyeballs and Frankenstein’s mouth. Let the pops dry for a 1 hour, if you don’t plan to eat them right away. There you go, your Marshmallow pops aka Frankensteins are ready to enjoy!
