These adorable Frankenstein treats are easy for kids to make and are frightfully fun to eat! Make a whole bunch of them and wrap them in cellophane for a fun party favor or classroom treat.

What You Need

marshmallows green food coloring paste chocolate chips small round candies for eyes thin pretzel sticks popsicle sticks 2 new paint brushes block of Styrofoam or Styrofoam cup

What You Do

Editor’s Note: Directions are for one Frankenmallow. Stick a popsicle stick up through the bottom of a marshmallow so that the marshmallow rests on top of the stick forming a “head”. Using a paintbrush and the green food coloring, paint the entire marshmallow green.

Note about using the green paste food coloring:

It takes just a very little bit of the food coloring to color the whole marshmallow. It was easier for me to put a tiny bit of coloring on the tip of my paint brush then brush it first on a piece of wax paper, then onto the marshmallow. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips. Dip the top of the marshmallow into the chocolate to create his “hair”. Using the other clean paintbrush, paint his hair peaks onto his forehead.

At this point, stick the sticks into a piece of Styrofoam or something that will keep the head standing up-right. Sticking thme into the bottom of a Styrofoam cup will work as well. Place the whole thing into the refrigerator for 2 minutes to harden the chocolate. Next, using the melted chocolate as glue, stick 2 round candies onto the head for eyes. Paint on a chocolate mouth. Break off the ends of a pretzel stick. Stick one piece on each side of Frankie’s head, poking through the marshmallow, for his “bolts”. Enjoy!
