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.
