Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops – an easy and fun treat to make this Halloween. Super cute and the kids will love them!
I am not really a craft person. It is kind of the running joke that I craft like a 5 year old. When we lived in Iowa I had a friend who would always help me with my crafts. Now, my friend Kristen has taken me under her wing, and is always willing to help me when I am trying to make gift for the holidays. She has a full craft room in her house, and knows her stuff. So when I need special assistance, she is where I go. I have to say, I made these little treats all by myself, and she didn’t even help! I did text her a picture of them when I was done, and I think I impressed both of us.
I don’t usually do a lot of Halloween themed treats, because there are so many cute ones out there, I just can’t compete. I have done a handful of them over the years, and did a Halloween round up so you could find them all in one place. Granola bars, bread sticks, brownies…all sorts of things. Some cuter than others, but all super easy, because I did them with no help 🙂 To make these Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops I used something I have never used before. Royal Icing. I had been intimidated by it for years, but I have no idea why. It is seriously 3 ingredients to make and so easy to use. I see a whole new world opening up ahead of me.
Once you have the royal icing you just need to color it. I tried a couple of techniques for the Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops, and the best was to get the icing pretty thin, and then dip and shake off the excess. I tried it thicker, and I just couldn’t get it as smooth. You can play with the consistency when you make them, because the humidity and everything else plays a roll in how the icing will act. But trust me, if I can make these cut little guys, you totally can! They do take a couple steps, because you have to wait for the icing to dry, but they were way faster and easier than I thought they would be. So give it a try, and make these Frankenstein Marshmallows for Halloween this year!
