The grandchildren and I had so much fun making these Halloween Marshmallow Pops. This very kid friendly recipes is quick and simple for them to tackle, with just a little supervision, their imagination can run wild! The only thing I did was melt the chocolate, everything else was done by my grandchildren, even these pictures. I let them take control of the whole project all on their own (after the chocolate cooled some). What a great way to get your little ones involved in kitchen making creating these delicious little treats of Halloween Marshmallow Pops.
As I’m sitting here, writing up this post, I keep looking at the pictures of these Halloween Marshmallow Pops, and something seems to be missing, and all of a sudden it hits me – most of the pops are missing! I’ve got 2 different pictures, but not the same treats. I know exactly what these little monsters did, they ate their favorite ones that were covered in their favorite sprinkles. What little monsters they are, not only do I have missing pops, but there is chocolate all over my kitchen, and no pictures to prove it wasn’t me! That’s OK, they will return back to Grammie’s again, soon. 🙂
Halloween Marshmallow Pops are such a wonderful and fun idea to get your children involved in the kitchen! Let them bring out their inner monster while having some fun.
- 15 large – Marshmallows

- Insert each marshmallow with a lollipop sticks and set aside until chocolate is melted.
- Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave until completed melted.
- Dip each marshmallow into melted chocolate, and let excess drip off before dipping into sprinkles. Once you’ve deep in sprinkles, set on parchment lined pan – stick side up. Place in refrigerator until chocolate had firmed up.
- Place a small dot of gel on the back of each candy eye and on the side of each marshmallow.
*Ghirardelli’s is my favorite **Instead of gel icing you could melt a few more chips and use that to glue the eyes on with.
These wonderful super kid friendly Halloween Marshmallow Pops will have your children or grandchildren laughing up a “freaky” little storm in your kitchen. This wonderful fun filled (messy) day is another day filled with love for the “grammie memory book”. These kids had a chocolate ball making their own creations in the kitchen and will remember this, and I will remember the mess (so worth it) for years to come. Each day that I can get them in the kitchen is an adventure for all of us. Get your marshmallows and chocolate out and get your little and big ones, involved in making these Halloween Marshmallow Pops. I hope you and your family has as much fun as we did. Happy Halloween!
From my kitchen to yours,
