These are so easy to make and kids will love the eyes that slide down!Growing up, Halloween was never one of my mom’s favorite holidays. We dressed up of course, but she typically saved homemade treats for Christmas. Now that I have my own kids, I’ve found Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to make fun snacks with my kids. There are so many silly and spooky possibilities like these marshmallow Halloween treats I created with Wesley last week.  With just a few simple ingredients, you can make something that is sure to put a smile on any kids face that is perfect for any Halloween parties!

If you are looking for non-scary Halloween desserts like this one, consider this easy pumpkin brownie recipe which actually has no pumpkin in it at all. It is in the shape of a pumpkin and made with a brownie mix! Another option is the easy pumpkin pudding with vanilla pudding or pumpkin dip with Cool Whip. These recipes take very little time to prepare.

For this fun activity, you’ll need the following simple ingredients:

  • marshmallows: We used the jumbo marshmallow variety.
  • candy melts: We used vibrant green but lavender or orange would also be fun choices. You could also substitute chocolate chips and then add your favorite black sprinkles, green sprinkles, orange sprinkles, etc. You could also use white chocolate chips if you want to make marshmallow ghosts instead.
  • candy eyeballs
  • canola or vegetable oil, shortening or coconut oil (optional): This will assist in creating a smoother chocolate, easy to drip.

If you’d like to make monster marshmallow pops instead, I recommend using the regular size marshmallows along with lollipop sticks.

How to Make Monster Marshmallows

To start, you’ll need to prepare your workspace. I added a silicone baking mat to a large baking sheet but you could use parchment paper or wax paper instead. Next, you’ll want to prepare your melted candy. I used the microwave and melted the candy melts in short intervals, just until melted. (Be careful you don’t overheat.) Then stir in a bit of oil to smooth your candy.

Adding Green Chocolate to Monster Marshmallows

I wanted the appearance of these marshmallows to look like they were a very slimy monster, so I let Wes simply pour some of the melted chocolate over the top of the marshmallow and using a circular motion with a spoon, letting it drizzle down. This was much easier for him to do than if he had to dip the marshmallow.

You’ll want to give the candy coating a chance to harden a bit before adding in the eyes if you want them to stay exactly where you put them. When we added the candy eyes too soon the eyes started to fall. It looked so cool, we left them like that!

This project is so much fun for kids of all ages because the imperfections really make the marshmallows look even more like spooky monsters. Older kids will love it too!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Wilton candy melts i chose vibrant green
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 8 jumbo marshmallows
  • candy eyeballs

Instructions

  1. Melt chocolate in microwave. Cook in 30 second intervals and stir in between, just until melted.
  2. Stir in oil.
  3. Place marshmallows on a silicone, foil or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Pour melted chocolate over the top of each marshmallow, starting with a tablespoon. Use the back of a spoon and move in a circular motion so chocolate runs down the side. Add more chocolate as necessary.
  5. Place candy eyes wherever you like. For the sunken eye look, add the eyes before the chocolate sets. To have eyes that stay where you place them, let the chocolate harden most of the way. (You can always add melted chocolate to the back of the eyes for them to stick if necessary.)
  6. Let chocolate harden at room temperature.
  7. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Because these monsters remind me of Slimer so much, they would be great for a Ghostbusters party or even a mad scientist party! If you used the smaller marshmallows, they would be a great topper for Halloween brownies! Who wouldn’t love a brownie topped with a slimy green monster?
