Frankenstein's Monster Marshmallow Pops
This is another wonderful idea for Halloween Party Food, and a bit quicker and easier than having to make cake pops. The Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops are a no-cook fun and tasty treat that can be made with the children, and they look wonderful!
If you can't get hold of some of the ingredients or then you could do your own versions by substituting with something that will give a similar effect. You can use coloured Ready-To-Roll Icing* and Coloured Writing Icing* for the decorations and eyes.
Here's the instructions from Just A Taste:
Green candy melts
Small pretzel sticks
Dark chocolate chips
Edible red and black markers
Equipment: toothpicks, lollipop sticks or colorful straws
Melt the green candy melts in a according to the package directions.
Push the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows then dip the marshmallows into the melted candy, turning to cover them completely. Stand the marshmallows upright in a glass filled with uncooked rice or something else to keep them in place, and pop in the fridge until the chocolate has cooled and hardened slightly, about 5 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips. Dip the tops of each of the coated marshmallows in the chocolate to form 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 make the "bolts" for the monster's neck. Carefully push one piece of pretzel into each side of the marshmallow about a third 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 the monster's forehead.
Eat immediately or store them in an air-tight contained in the fridge until ready to serve.
