Monsters, Ghouls, and Goblins, oh my! We had a little cool snap here in Texas in October. That means it's in the 80's :) and it means it's time for all things Fall!
I found these Monster Marshmallow Pops in a Phyllis Hoffman, Celebrate magazine a few years ago. My girls had so much fun making them that I had to take a moment and share the pics and the recipe. It is super easy but on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the messiest), be prepared to do some cleaning. My kitchen was a 4 but if your children are older then it might not be so bad :) Besides, the finished product was well worth the mess. The pops were so cute!
MONSTER POPS (makes 2 dozen)
24 large marshmallows
24 (4-inch) lollipop sticks
1 recipe Royal Icing (recipe follows)
assorted Halloween sprinkles
Royal Icing Eyes (we didn't have these so we just used icing)
3 (9x4x3 inch) pieces floral oasis
Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Insert 1 lollipop stick in one flat side of each marshmallow. Dip each marshmallow in desired colored icing, gently shaking off excess. Place dipped marshmallow, stick end up, on prepared baking sheets. Let stand until icing begins to dry but is still slightly sticky, about 5 minutes. Decorate as desired. Insert finished Monster Pops in floral oasis to dry completely.
