Spooktacular Style: Halloween Marshmallow Pops

This month is flying by and Halloween is quickly approaching. That means lots of parties, pot-lucks, and classroom treats. Today, I want to share one of my favorite treats to make and take: Marshmallow Pops. They are super easy, adorable, and SO yummy. I love changing them up for the seasons and I have five fun Halloween/Fall variations that I whipped up for you.

Marshmallow Pops are so easy to make. All you need is a big bag of marshmallows, lollipop sticks (I got mine from a craft store), candy melts, sprinkles, sparkle gel, or whatever else you want to decorate with. I love the Wilton’s candy melts! They come in a ton of colors, melt down quickly in the microwave, and are so easy to work with. Today, I decided to go with three Halloween characters and two Fall themed mallow pops.

 

Fall Themes Marshmallow Pops for my next party. Candy corn and Salted Caramel.

Then I used dark chocolate candy melts to dip the very top to make his hair. Finally, I used Wilton’s Sparkle Gell to draw on his face, stitches and neck bolts. The green color kept messing with my camera, but he is still my favorite! So cute!

Pirate-Pop: I started off by covering the marshmallow with white candy melts. I dipped the top in orange sparkles to be the bandana. I wish I had red candy melts, but I figured this was close enough! Then I used the same Sparkle Gel to draw on his face and eye patch.

Mallow Mummy: Again, I started off with white candy melts and used a spoon to help add the rough/bandage-like texture. Then I just used my handy Sparkle Gell to add his two little eyes!

Candy (Melt) Corn: I was worried about how this one would turn out, but I love the dipped effect. I started with the white candy melts, then added a layer of orange, and finally a layer of yellow. I waited for each coat to dry in between.  The effect of the thicker layers almost gives the marshmallow a tapered candy corn look! Bonus! I know candy corn is mostly for Halloween, but you could make these all the way up through Thanksgiving. I really want to do this in Red/White/Blue next year for 4th of July!

Salted Caramallow: I LOVE salted caramel hot chocolate. I thought it would be fun to make a marshmallow look alike. I started with white candy melts, of course. After that dried, I used peanut butter melts (I wanted caramel but I couldn’t find it, this had a close enough look) to drip along the top. Then I used white sprinkles for my “salt.” I would love to make a real salted caramel marshmallow pop next time and I know it would be so good to stir in my hot cocoa… YUM!

Adorable marshmallow Halloween treats! They look too cute to eat! Ok, lets be real: I’m not taking these little guys anywhere. I’m personally going to eat all of them.
