  • Marshmallows
  • Lollipop sticks (long)

– white melts for the ghosts

  • Black sprinkles (Frankenstein hair)
  • Green gummy candy (Pumpkin leaves)
  • Edible candy eyes
  • Edible pens or icing

To start us off, melt the candy melts following the packet instructions. If not, heat in the microwave for 30-second intervals. Mix them after each 30 seconds until you get a nice smooth texture. It should be a bit runny.
After that, get your lollipop stick and push your marshmallow into it, and then roll it in the melted candy melts. Try to make it as smooth as possible, you can use a spoon to help.


Try to decorate them quickly because the melts while drying up fast. Also, once finished decorating, make sure to stick them upright to the pops dry correctly.

Frankenstein – While still warm, dip the top of your green covered marshmallow into a bowl of black sprinkles for its hair. Add some red veins using your edible pen or icing to the eyes. Put the eyes on the face and when the chocolate is cold and solid, draw on some eyebrows or a mouth with your black edible pen or icing.

Jack o’ lantern – (For this, be sure to make the stick poke out on the top.) Use the orange candy melt and roll it on the marshmallow. If you want to add candy eyes, do it while the melt hasn’t cooled yet. After the candy melt is cold and ready to get decorated, you can start drawing on the marshmallow using your edible pens or icing. Lastly, use green gummy candy for the leaves and poke it on to the stick.

Ghosts – For the ghosts, you can either dip it into white candy melts or just draw directly onto the marshmallow. If using the candy melts, wait until hardened to draw on some eyes and a mouth. Boo!

Have fun with this recipe! These marshmallow pops are always fun to make, and are perfect for a little treat at a party, or just for a snack.
