Ingredients

  • 1 can white frosting (or 2 cups homemade)
  • Orange, Pink, Teal, and Purple Gel Food Colors (or whatever colors you want!)
  • 24 large marshmallows
  • 36 Mini M&M's (yellow, orange, red, and blue)
  • 12 Candy eyes
  • 1/4 cup Black sprinkles (I used the "jimmies" kind)
  • Black gel icing
  • 12 White sugar pearls
  • 6 Oreos or Oreo Thins - halved (or even mini Oreos!)

Supplies:

  • 4 small bowls
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Wax paper
  • Styrofoam block to stand pops up in

Instructions

  • Divide frosting between 4 small bowls - you want the bowls to be deep enough to dip the marshmallows down into.
  • I recommend doing one color/set of marshmallows at a time. Heat one bowl of frosting in the microwave for 10 seconds, then stir. If you'd like it to be thinner, heat for another 5 seconds. Add your color (directions for each monster and what color to use are below.)
  • Have your decorations out on a plate or other surface where they are easy to access (namely the black sprinkles as you will need to dip some of the marshmallows into those for hair!)
  • For the Frankensteins: Add 4 drops of the teal color and stir to mix well. Take six popsicle sticks and 1 at a time, dip about 1/2" into the frosting bowl, then stick into a marshmallow, about 3/4 of the way through. Turn stick upside down and dip marshmallow into frosting bowl to cover marshmallow. Lift up and turn sideways and tap the stick on the bowl to shake off excess frosting and leave a smooth finish. Dip the top of the marshmallow into the black sprinkles to give Frankenstein his hair, then you will put 2 red mini M&M's on each side of the marshmallows for ears, 2 yellow or orange mini M&M's for eyes, and a black sprinkle for the mouth (if you aren't using the "jimmies" type of sprinkles, you can use the gel icing to draw a mouth), and then place a black gel icing dot in the middle of each of the eyes, then place hair side down onto the wax paper. Repeat this process with the remaining 5 sticks and marshmallows for this color.
  • For the Bats: Add 4 drops of purple color and stir to mix well. Take six popsicle sticks and 1 at a time, dip about 1/2" into the frosting bowl, then stick into a marshmallow, about 3/4 of the way through. Turn stick upside down and dip marshmallow into frosting bowl to cover marshmallow. Lift up and turn sideways and tap the stick on the bowl to shake off excess frosting and leave a smooth finish. Place two Oreos halves on the back of the marshmallow to make wings. Lay down on wax paper, wing side down, then place two blue mini M&M's for the eyes, with black gel icing dots in the middle of eyes, and a black jimmies sprinkle (or black gel icing) for the mouth. REpeat this process with the remaining 5 sticks and marshmallows for this color.
  • For the Monsters: Add 4 drops of pink or magenta colr and stir to mix well. Take six popsicle sticks and 1 at a time, dip about 1/2" into the frosting bowl, then stick into a marshmallow, about 3/4 of the way through. Turn stick upside down and dip marshmallow into frosting bowl to cover marshmallow. Lift up and turn sideways and tap the stick on the bowl to shake off excess frosting and leave a smooth finish. Dip the top of the marshmallow into the black sprinkles to give the Monster its hair, add either 1 or 3 candy eyes and a sprinkle or gel icing mouth, then place hair side down onto the wax paper. Repeat this process with the remaining 5 sticks and marshmallows for this color.
  • For the Pumpkins: Add 4 drops of orange color and stir to mix well. Take six popsicle sticks and 1 at a time, dip about 1/2" into the frosting bowl, then stick into a marshmallow, about 3/4 of the way through. Turn stick upside down and dip marshmallow into frosting bowl to cover marshmallow. Lift up and turn sideways and tap the stick on the bowl to shake off excess frosting and leave a smooth finish. Use the gel icing to draw triangle eyes and a jagged mouth, then place a white sugar pearl in the center of each eye. You can either place upside down on wax paper, or go ahead and stick into your styrofoam block to let the frosting set.
  • Once all pops are made, you can let sit out for a bit to let the frosting set, or carefully move them to the fridge. Once the frosting has hardened, you can store in an airtight container (I use a large container so that I can sort of overlap the popsicle sticks and the marshmallow monsters don't actually touch or mess each other up) for up to a week. But they won't last that long!
  • When ready to serve you can lay flat on a serving tray or stick on your styrofoam blocks for a fun display!
