I made these Halloween marshmallows for my kids and their friends and they were a huge hit! I am looking forward to making a few variations on these for Halloween and trick or treat. They will go great with these mason jar jack o lanterns and some other Halloween party food. Getting the kids involved with these Halloween marshmallows was fun and they were able to help with just about every step. Be sure to have an adult melt the candy because it can get very hot.
Start by separating the white candy melts into 3 microwave safe dishes, and melt them according to the directions. Typically, this means heating in a microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until the the candy is melted and smooth. I prefer to buy a big bag of white candy melts and dye small batches to the color I need, instead of individual bags of colored candy melts.
Next, add candy coloring to the candy melts. Be sure to use this candy coloring as opposed to regular food coloring. The candy will hold this color and still keeps it’s smooth texture, a little goes a long way.
I used jumbo marshmallow and cake pop sticks for these Halloween marshmallows. My kids helped dip the marshmallows into the colored candy and then decorate them. We made a monster with purple sprinkles and googly eyes, and a jack lantern with a green stem. The bloody marshmallow was a favorite and probably the easiest to make.
After making each Halloween marshmallow I let them stand to dry in a jar, once they were dry I was able to lay them on a plate or in a container to store away. You can also wrap these up in individual treat bags and give them out at your Halloween party, it’s a treat and a party favor all in one.
