Monster & Ghost Marshmallows

This past weekend, Dean requested to make these Monster and Ghost Marshmallows and since we had so much fun, I thought I’d share them with you. 

These Halloween Monster & Ghost Marshmallows are perfect for getting your little one in the spirit of Halloween. They’re super fun, easy and inexpensive to make. They would also make a great party favor if you’re entertaining any littles.  

You only need a few ingredients for this simple recipe, and if you’ve got a set or two of little helping hands, you’ll be able to whip up a batch of these goodies in no time.

Dean would have eaten all of them if he could have gotten away with it. It’s another one of my kid-tested and approved recipes! 

We used a candy melting pot to melt down our wafers and made our monsters using purple, orange and green sprinkles. I only covered half of the marshmallow in sprinkles to give them more character. To make the ghosts I covered the entire marshmallow in white sprinkles. Finally, I added these candy eyes to all of them using some white icing.

I tied a small piece of this ribbon to each marshmallow ribbon as a sweet extra detail. If you’re giving these as Halloween party favors, I would wrap each pop in cellophane and then tie them with ribbon to close.    

I hope you enjoy making and devouring these sweet Halloween Monster & Ghost Marshmallows as much as we did! If you have any favorite Halloween traditions, I would love to hear them. Just leave me a comment below!

  • Sprinkles (purple, orange, green & white)
  • Candy eyes

  1. Melt candy wafers in melting pot. Once melted turn setting to keep warm. If you’re not using a melting pot, use a glass bowl to melt wafers in the microwave at 50% power in 30 second increments until melted. Be careful not to burn.
  2. For monster marshmallows: Dip knife in melted wafers and spread around top and half way down each marshmallow while holding the bottom. Let stand 5 minutes. (note: if you allow them to sit too long the chocolate will harden too much so keep an eye on them)
  3. For ghost marshmallows: Dip knife in melted wafers and spread around top and all the way down and around each marshmallow Let stand 5 minutes. (note: if you allow them to sit too long the chocolate will harden too much so keep an eye on them)
  4. Once the marshmallows have cooled slightly, but are still sticky, cover with desired sprinkles. Pat sprinkles down carefully. While still holding the marshmallow insert the candy stick and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Use white icing to add candy eyes.
  6. Let stand for 30 minutes to harden.
