The great thing about these treats is that you don’t need to make the 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! Winking smile

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. Be sure to drop by her site and browse around… I am sure you would enjoy her site just as much as I do Smile

Anyways, let’s get started…

The first thing you need to do is make cupcakes. I made some vanilla cupcakes and some chocolate cupcakes.

While those cupcakes are baking, you can make the marshmallow pops.

Just follow these steps…

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

Step 2:
Melt some white chocolate and color it orange.  you can also use orange candy melts.
Dip your marshmallow pop into this 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 pops that look like Frankenstein’s monster, 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 of your marshmallow.
