Well, this Halloween Marshmallow Pops recipe is colored to resemble something a bit spooky. Reminds me of a goblin, right? Or some fun little creature. You can play around with the colors if you’d like, but the flavors will be the same – and the happy smiles from the recipients as well.

Halloween Marshmallow Pops Recipe Directions:

#1. Insert one candy stick into the base of each marshmallow and set aside.

#2. In a microwave-safe dish, heat the purple chocolate candy melts in 30-second increments. Stir every 30 seconds until melted. My microwave took about 2 ½ – 3 minutes. Let cool 3-4 minutes before dipping your marshmallows.

#3. Dip each marshmallow one at a time in the purple chocolate. Use a small spoon to help cover the marshmallow completely and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.

#4. Sprinkle the marshmallow with the Halloween sprinkles before the chocolate sets and stand the marshmallow up in the cup/mug.

#5 Repeat steps #3 and #4 with all the marshmallows. Once they are all dipped and sprinkled place the mugs in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

If not serving immediately,  store these Halloween marshmallow pops in a cool dry are so the chocolate does not melt.

*Makes 8-10 servings. 1 marshmallow = 1 serving.
