I’m such a fan of Halloween…maybe it’s because October is one of my favorite months of the year. Whatever the reason, I love decorating for the spookiest holiday of the year! This is the first time we decided to have fun with marshmallows and create a few not-so-spooky Halloween characters. Here’s what we came up with!
It all starts with marshmallows and tons of candy. But then again it wouldn’t be Halloween without candy. Our first project was creating the witch. We used chocolate chips, mini peanut butter cups, and Hershey’s Kisses! In addition to the candy, we also used Oreo cookies, vanilla frosting and flaked coconut.
This kids first job was to take apart the cookies and unwrap the candy. We only needed one side of the Oreo cookie to use for the witches hat. You can guess what happened to the rest of the cookie:).
We used flaked coconut for the witches hair and the brim of the hat. Green for the hair and orange (red and yellow mixed together) for the hat.
After collecting all the parts of the witch, the kids started putting it together. Using the frosting as glue, they used the chocolate chips as eyes and a nose on her face. Then they assembled the Oreo cookie on top, then the peanut butter cup, topped with the Hershey’s Kiss. I placed the coconut hair and brim of the hat on each (this was a really messy step).
And here it is….the spooky witch! May not be ready for the pages of Better Homes and Gardens, but the kids really had fun putting this together so we hope you enjoy it as well!
Next we made scary ghosts on a stick!
After icing three sides of the marshmallow with the vanilla frosting, use wooden skewers to create a lollipop with the marshmallow. Place these in a cup before decorating.
After decorating with chocolate chips and sprinkles, these are ready to eat!
Easy and delicious!
Next we made a marshmallow sprinkle treat!
Using the vanilla frosting, cover the top of one end plus part of the rim. Then place in a bowl of sprinkles to cover the frosting.
These are just as fun to eat and provide your display with a lot of color and a delicious mouthful. As you can see my kids enjoyed all of the treats but had more fun creating it.
We hope your Halloween is filled with spooky treats and tons of fun!
