Halloween gives you the great excuse to get dressed up and make some Halloween treats. If you have kids we’ve found some quick and easy recipes for you to try, if you don’t you’ll have just as much fun making them.
What you’ll need:
- Green candy melts – you can get these from Hobbycraft.
- Small pretzel rods
- Chocolate chips
- Candy eyeballs
- Edible red and black markers
- lollipop sticks or colourful straws
First you’ll need to melt the green candy melts in a microwave until they are fully melted.
Push the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows. Then comes in the messy bit, 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 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth. Dip the tops of each of the coated marshmallows in the chocolate to create the hair, and using a toothpick, drag the chocolate down toward the base of the marshmallow to form spikes of hair. Return the marshmallows to the fridge until the chocolate has hardened, about 5 minutes.
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 marshmallow about 1/3 of the way from the bottom.
Using a toothpick and the remaining melted chocolate, dab two 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 Frankenstein’s forehead. Enjoy the marshmallow pops immediately or store them in an air-tight contained in the fridge until ready to serve.
