Halloween Inspiration

(page 1 of 2)

halloween marshmallow popsHere are some Halloween ideas to make your spooky holiday season a spine-chilling sensation. Learn to make a batch of freakishly delicious Halloween marshmallow pops; get crafty (and sticky!) by entering a duct tape jack-o-lantern contest; and sneak some simple math fun into the candy commotion.

Marshmallow Pops

Easy and fun, make a batch of Halloween marshmallow pops!

Ingredients:

  • 12 marshmallows
  • 12 popsicle or lollipop sticks
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 8 ounces white chocolate
  • sprinkles (or other crumbled toppings)

Put the sticks into marshmallows. Melt the semisweet chocolate separately using a double boiler (or in a heat-safe bowl over a saucepan with a small amount of water in the bottom). Dip the marshmallow in the chocolate and roll it against the side of the bowl to get rid of excess. Immediately dip in sprinkles. Repeat with a fresh marshmallow in the white chocolate.

This is the first year we are going to a "Trunk or Treat". Hopefully, if it is fun, this is what we will continue to do each year, besides the traditional trick or treating, pumpkin carving, etc.....:0)
