How to Make Halloween Marshmallow Pops: Ghost

  • To make the Ghost, in a deep microwave-safe bowl or mason jar melt 1/2 cup white chocolate or enough to immerse a marshmallow and coat it fully. In 20-second increments, stirring well in between. In a separate bowl melt a 1⁄4 cup of white chocolate with a few drops of black candy coloring for the eyes.
  •  Prepare a plate or baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Set aside. (reserve for other pops to set).
  • Start by dipping a paper straw or lollipop stick in the melted white chocolate then pierce it into the base of a marshmallow. You can allow it to be set if it seems like it’s not secure. Next dip your marshmallow in the white chocolate, fully coating all sides and the base. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl or jar. Place it on the wax paper-lined plate and refrigerate to set. Meanwhile, put a bit of the melted black chocolate in either a piping bag or sandwich bag with a tiny hole cut out for piping. (reserve leftovers for the Bat pop.)

  • When the white chocolate has set on the marshmallow, remove it from the refrigerator and add two oval-shaped eyes and a mouth to form your Ghost. Allow the Ghost to set completely before transferring to a serving display.

How to Make Halloween Marshmallow Pops: Jack-o-lantern

  • To make the Jack-o-lantern, in a deep microwave-safe bowl or mason jar melt 1⁄2 cup white chocolate enough to immerse a marshmallow and coat it fully. Mix in some orange candy coloring, melt in 20-second increments, stirring well in between. In a separate bowl melt 1⁄2 cup of white chocolate and add a few drops of green candy coloring.
  • Dip the paper straw or lollipop stick in the orange chocolate and then into a marshmallow.

  • Dip the marshmallow in the orange chocolate. Evenly coat on all sides and base and allow the excess chocolate to drip back into the jar or bowl. Place the pop on the wax paper-lined plate.

  • Carefully separate an Oreo cookie. Scrape the cream off of one of the sides of the cookie.
  • Using a paring knife and a cutting board carefully cut 2 small triangles for the eyes and 3 small jagged shapes for the mouth. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just have fun!
  • Place the Oreo shapes on the marshmallow to form the eyes and mouth. To complete your Jack-o-lantern, break a pretzel stick in half and insert it into the green melted chocolate if you would like. Then allow the Jack-o-lantern to fully set. Reserve the extra green chocolate for the Witch pop.

How to Make Halloween Marshmallow Pops: Witch

  • To make the Witch, dip a paper straw in the melted green chocolate reserved from the Jack-o-lantern above. (you may need to re-warm the chocolate in the microwave in 10 to 15-second increments).

  • Dip the straw into a marshmallow and then fully dip and coat the marshmallow with the green chocolate until evenly coated. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and then place on the wax paper-lined plate.

  • Add candy eyes to the marshmallow followed by a round green sprinkle for the nose. Next add a green Jimmie sprinkle for the mouth, followed by orange jimmies for the hair. Finish the face with some gold nonpareils for warts.

  • To make the witch hat, scrape the cream from an oreo cookie. Use one side of the cookie as the base for the hat and cut a triangle with a paring knife for the top of the hat. Use some of the reserved black chocolate from the Ghost above to attach the triangle to the hat base. Add a little more chocolate to the seam of the hat and base to adhere some purple sprinkles to decorate the hat. (you may need to rewarm the black chocolate in 10-15 second increments).

  • When the Witch has fully set, attach the hat using some more melted black chocolate on the top. You can place it in a cup in the refrigerator to allow it to set upright! Once dry your witch is party-ready!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to not overheat your chocolate; this will cause it to burn and ruin the color of your Halloween Marshmallow pops. 
  • For best results, use small mason jars or deep bowls when melting the chocolate. 
  • You may use colored candy melts instead of Belgian chocolate. This will save quite a bit of time when it comes to coloring the chocolate. 
  •  The amounts for the chocolate are an estimate, measured before melting. In the testing of this recipe, 1⁄2 cup of Belgian chocolate melted, coated 2 pops with a bit left over. This is a guide and can change depending on how many pops you would like to make.
  • Be sure to use oil-based candy coloring for this project for the best results.

Storage

These are best enjoyed the day that you make them. Store them at room temperature in an airtight container. 

Storing these in the fridge will create moisture and the decorations will run. This will create a very disappointing mess after all your hard work on these.
