How to Make Frankenstein Marshmallow Treats
It's so very easy to make these adorable treats! You don't even have to worry about the mouth looking perfect because funny or crooked mouths are totally appropriate here. The most complicated step in this recipe is melting the candy melts. Or keeping them safe from being gobbled up before you are ready to serve.
- Push the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows about halfway through.
- In a small bowl melt, the candy melts at 10 to 30-second intervals until melted.
- Add green food coloring to the candy melts and mix.
- Dip each marshmallow into the melted candy and spread it over the marshmallow using a spatula or knife.
- Next, dip the marshmallow in the black sprinkles to create the hair on top.
- Set pop on a styrofoam block or in tall glasses. A dd tiny marshmallows for the bolts.
Add two candy eyes and draw smiles or frowns or scares using the black icing.
Once you draw the faces, let treats sit for about 30 minutes.
Timesaving Tips to Make Monster Halloween Treats
Before you begin, count out the number of jumbo marshmallows you will need, and spread them out on wax paper. If you don't have enough styrofoam to prop each treat after it is decorated, you can turn them upside down on the wax paper after decorating to dry. The sprinkles for hair will not stick to the wax paper.
The black decorator icing bag will have a built-in tip so you don't even have to put a tip on the bag to pipe
Can I use white chocolate for the monster halloween treats?
You can use white chocolate in place of the candy melts in a pinch, but you won't get as smooth or pretty a result. Candy melts coat more evenly and smoothly.
I don't have lollipop sticks and can't find them last minute. What Can I Do?
Make your monster heads sit on a platter with no stick. It's a bit more gruesome somehow, but that works for this holiday.
