Halloween Monster Marshmallow Pops are the perfect way to celebrate Halloween!
Celebrating Halloween is all about having fun, and what’s more fun than these adorable Halloween Monster Marshmallow Pops? We whipped up these cute creatures as an easy and inexpensive Halloween treat and discovered they are perfect for celebrating Halloween at home, as a party favour, or shared with school friends.
We know Halloween is going to look a little different this year, so I’ve been thinking of ideas to make sure our girls still have the best Halloween yet. We’ve added a few new Halloween books to our collection (see our favourites here), picked out our pumpkins and have a list of yummy-looking treats to make, like our White Chocolate Halloween Monster Popcorn. But I wanted to add one more sweet treat to the mix, and I thought these Halloween Monster Marshmallow Pops were a great way to help the girls get in the Halloween spirit at home.
You need only a few ingredients for this simple recipe, and if you’ve got a set or two of little helping hands you’ll be able to whip up a batch of these goodies in no time. Seriously, they are so fun to make, it’s a great recipe to get little ones involved in while making endless memories together.
The girls couldn’t wait to devour these little monsters, and I was surprised by how much they loved them. I mean, I know for most kids marshmallows and sprinkles are a winning combination, but I never would have guessed they would be such a hit. The girls would have eaten all of them in the blink of an eye if they could have gotten away with it. It’s another one of our kid-tested and approved recipes!
We made our monsters using purple and orange sprinkles, but it would be fun to add a whole rainbow of monsters and include green, pink and blue as well. I only covered half of the marshmallow in sprinkles to give a colour block effect. It almost looks like hair, which I think is so cute. To make the ghosts I covered the entire marshmallow in shredded coconut, but you could use white sprinkles too.
I tied a small piece of black and white ribbon on each marshmallow pop as a sweet extra detail. If you’re giving these as Halloween party favours I would wrap each pop in cellophane and then tie with a ribbon.
- Candy sticks

- Molding wafers (white, purple, orange)

- Using your hands, dip one half of the marshmallow in the melted wafers and then dip in coordinating sprinkles.
- While still holding the marshmallow insert the candy stick into the marshmallow and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- While the melted wafers are still warm, add candy eyes.
- Let stand for 30 minutes to harden.
