Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops

So I took a little break from crafting for some Halloween cupcake preparations! Tonight my friend Melanie and I are doing our annual Halloween cupcakes to bring into the office tomorrow. Last night, I made some Frankenstein marshmallow pops, some of which will become cupcake toppers. They came out pretty cute and were super easy to make!

Here are the ingredients, minus the pretzels. I was going to use them for the bolts in Frankenstein’s neck, but ended up going with slivered almonds instead. You’ll need large marshmallows, green melting chocolate, candy eyes, chocolate sprinkles, and pop sticks.

I microwaved the chocolate wafers for 30 second increments, stirring in between. It took about 2 minutes to get it to this consistency. Be very careful not to burn it!

Then you put the marshmallow on the stick, and dip it in. Tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate.

Next make his “hair” by dipping the marshmallow into the chocolate sprinkles. Add the eyes while the chocolate is still melted.

I hate using styrofoam because it’s not biodegradable, but I couldn’t find anything else to use to prop them up to dry. 😦  I have seen others using one small block of foam, or even the green floral foam covered in foil.

I used slivered almonds for the neck “bolts” and black sparkle gel for the mouth. I let the chocolate harden a bit before applying the mouth.

And there you have it! Easy, fun, Halloween treats. These would be great wrapped in little baggies for Halloween party favors, or a fun project to do with the kids.

Stay tuned for Halloween cupcakes coming very, very soon! 🙂
