Marshmallow Monster Pops

Happy Halloween month, friends!
I created this fun recipe with my kids in mind, as most of my food is. They love to help make and eat my recipe creations so we definitely had some messy fun making these Marshmallow Monster Pops!
These tasty treats make a spooktacular Halloween party dessert or gift!

Ingredients:

Makes 12 pops
  • 8 jumbo marshmallows
  • 12 oz colored vanilla flavored candy melts {I used 3 colors}
  • 8 candy eyes
  • Halloween themed sprinkles, for topping

Directions:

  1. Pour candy melts into a shallow bowl or mason jar and melt in the microwave on 50% power for 1 min.Stir then repeat in 30 second intervals until smooth. I used 3 colors, all in separate jars.
  2. Insert a treat stick into the center of each marshmallow.
  3. Dip and swirl in the candy melts and tap off any excess.
  4. Gently add sprinkles all over and press a candy eye in the center.
  5. Place in a cup or stand to harden for a couple minutes.
  6. Repeat with remaining marshmallows dipped in different colored candy melts. 
  7. Wrap in clear treat bags and tie with ribbon as gifts or serve at a Halloween party as a festive treat!

For these Monster Pops I used 3 different colors of candy melts for dipping.
 I used a half bag of each and was able to cover 12 jumbo marshmallows.

Pour candy melts into a shallow bowl or mason jar and melt in the microwave on 50% power for 1 min.

Stir then repeat in 30 second intervals until smooth.
Insert a treat stick into the center of each marshmallow.

Dip and swirl in the candy melts.
Then tap off any excess.
Gently add sprinkles all over.

Then press a candy eye in the center.
Place in a cup or stand to harden for a couple minutes.

Wrap in clear treat bags and tie with ribbon as gifts or serve at a Halloween party as a festive treat.

 I like to prop mine up in candy filled mason jars for a fun presentation.
Ava couldn't wait to sample hers!
My little foodies have a sweet tooth like their Mama!
I just love making treats at home with my kiddos.
What is your favorite kid friendly homemade Halloween treat? 

Hope you like this recipe as much as my family and I did!

Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa #Choctoberfest

Today is the last day of #Choctoberfest and I decided last minute to make one more delicious chocolate filled recipe. After a long day out and about I was craving a hot drink and ready to snuggle up on the couch and watch a show. I knew hot cocoa was what I needed and when I saw the bag of peanut butter chips Davis Chocolate had sent me I knew I wanted to make a batch of homemade Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa to end our long day!

Blood Orange Spooky Slush Punch

This spooky slush punch is citrus flavored and blood red- perfect for serving at Halloween parties! It is made with new Organic Stevia In The Raw®, a zero-calorie sweetener that adds a delicious sweet taste to this fun drink! 
 As a fan of the original Sugar In The Raw products, I was excited to find new Organic Stevia In The Raw available at my local grocery store! I love the convenient packets for sweetening my morning cup of coffee or adding to my bowl of cereal or sliced fruit. Each packet is only three calories, but provides the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar (which contains 32 calories)! 

I decided to try using Organic Stevia In The Raw for this punch recipe and the end result was perfectly sweetened and spooky- just like I wanted it!
