This year, I am planning to put my little one down for a nap (hopefully a long one) and have scary movie marathon…hehehe.

And while watching my favorite spooky movies, I am gonna be snacking on these Halloween marshmallow pop cupcakes.

The great thing about these treats is that you don’t need to make cupcakes, if you don’t feel like it.

You can simply make the marshmallow pops and munch on those.

And trust me, marshmallows taste sooooooo good when they are covered in chocolate!

The inspiration for the Frankenstein marshmallow pops came from my sweet friend, Meaghan, at The decorated cookie.

She makes the most AMAZING marshmallow pops ever, including these Frankenstein ones.

To make these Halloween marshmallow pop cupcakes, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:

Vegan chocolate cupcakes
Chocolate buttercream icing
Popsicle sticks
Black edible marker
Melted orange, brown, green chocolate
Chocolate sprinkles
Round confetti sprinkles

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Push lollipop sticks into marshmallows until they stick into place.

Step 2:
Melt some white chocolate and color it orange or just use orange candy melts.
Dip your marshmallow pop into this melted chocolate until it’s fully covered.
Push these pops into a styrofoam block and wait for the chocolate to dry (it only takes a few minutes).

Step 3:
Use a black edible marker to make the eyes, nose and mouth of these Jack O’ Lantern pops.

Step 4:
To make Frankenstein marshmallow pops, follow step 1 and 2 again but color your chocolate green or use green candy melts.
Let the pops dry.
Then, pour a drop of melted chocolate on top.

Step 5:
Immediately, dip it into a bowl of chocolate sprinkles.

Step 6:
The sprinkles will stick to the melted chocolate.
Brush off any excess.

Step 7:
Use a black edible marker to make eyes on two round confetti sprinkles.
Dip a toothpick in melted chocolate and use that to stick eyes onto the Frankenstein marshmallow pop.

And you are done!

You can enjoy these marshmallow pops, as is. 

Or you can frost cupcakes in chocolate buttercream and then push these marshmallow pops in the center, just like cupcake toppers.

    This is too cute. Love the severed heads laying on the ground. My oldest has an October birthday and I always wanted to do a Halloween themed party for her–alas, she’s in college now (perhaps when she turns 30??).

    Wow what cute scary heads! Unfortunately we don’t celerbrate Halloween in Australia (At least no one I know does) so we all miss out on an extra lolly season. However after seeing how cute…and scary* these look, I might just make them anyway!

    My goodness Abeer! You’re so creative mA! Btw, I’m a total harry potter junkie too, but I doubt I would have the luck to have my son nap for me to even watch half of one movie, let alone the whole series LOL

    Really great job with these! So attractive – almost too attractive to eat. Well, not really – I’d gobble them up – but they look so great! Thanks for this.

    Your creativity and talent just amazes me. I am totally going to make this too. Very simple! Where will I get edible markers? Are they readily available?
    I would love to see the expression on my daughter’s face when she sees this!

    @ Asmita…. Thanks for your sweet comment!
    Oh yes… Edible markers are readily available. You can get them from amazon or wilton’s site. You can also buy them from Hobby Lobby or Michaels in the cake decorating section.
    I use the wilton brand. But, i hear that americolor is even better and there are more color options… I haven’t seen those at my local michaels or hobby lobby but they are on amazon….

    Hope this helps. I am sure you and your daughter will have alot of fun making these pops. Please feel free to share pictures of your pops 🙂

    We do not celebrate Halloween in Cyprus but I have to admit that you created again a piece of art 🙂
    In Cyprus we celebrate Carnival every February and we can have any costume we like.

    These turned out so cute! I had no idea that they made those edible markers – that is so helpful to know – it’ll be super helpful for next time i want to decorate cake pops or other little stuff. Happy early Halloween!

    oh this looks so simple but so impressive (and I am sure very good!). Halloween is not an Italian tradition and I’ve started to appreciate it only when I moved to London (UK). Now I love it and I’m always looking for new edible ideas. This is on my list now. Your blog looks nice and very inspiring!!

    Ack, I love your Halloween marshmallows, they’re too cute! I would totally be content to just get a bunch of those on sticks without cupcakes, but I’m sure the cupcakes are a delicious accompaniment as well. 😉
