Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops

I thought that this month I had already reached my quota of being a crafty mom. After all, I’ve already made a reusable sandwich wrapper and hobo dance bags for the girls! When I saw these cute Halloween treats on Pinterest, however, I knew I had to make them! This recipe comes from Food Family Finds.

Some of the supplies you’ll need

I found cookie sticks, clear treat bags and white candy melts in the craft section at Walmart. Walmart’s selection wasn’t huge, and I had better luck finding the rest of my supplies in the candy-making section of Hobby Lobby. They had yellow candy melts and the candy coloring, along with the fancy twist ties. I bought regular sized marshmallows at Jewel. I was hoping to find the giant marshmallows I had seen this summer, they were no where to be found on this shopping trip!

Using the orange candy coloring to dye the white candy melts, I also added a tablespoon of Crisco for each 1/2 cup of candy melts. It melted very nicely in the microwave, and I dipped the marshmallows two thirds deep into the candy. I placed the marshmallows on parchment paper to dry. After the orange candy was completely hardened, I repeated the process with the yellow candy melts, dipping the bottom one-third of the marshmallow into the candy.

The unevenness of the candy screams “handmade with love.”

Bagged and tied for a cute Halloween treat!

I brought these treats to a Halloween luncheon one of my friends hosted for our preschool class and their moms. The treats were a huge hit! Plus, since I had put them in little bags, the kids could take one home with them. Such an easy treat to make!

What treats are you making this Halloween?

  1. Those are so cute. What a great idea. Since most Walmarts have added groceries to their stores they have made other sections smaller 🙁

  2. How cute! Since we've gone nonprocessed, we're not making a lot of treats, but these are so adorable, and it looks like a fun project for Sprite. We may just do these for her class.

  3. I love crafty people. It's just not in my DNA, but oh how I love to see the creative come into form. These are very cool.
