FRANKENMALLOWS


 A HALLOWEEN TREAT




6 OZ.BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
25 JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, divided

Suggested Decorations: 
baker's angel flake coconut 
food colorings
colored sugar 
pretzel sticks
ring-shaped toasted whole grain oat cereal
decorating icing
chow mein noodles
planters nuts
small candies 

MELT chocolate as directed on package. Dip 20 marshmallows, 1 at a time, in chocolate, turning to evenly coat each marshmallow. Gently shake off excess chocolate. Place marshmallows, in single layer, on sheets of waxed paper. Reserve remaining melted chocolate for decorating. (NOTE: If decorating coated marshmallows with coconut hair, place 1/2 cup coconut in small resealable plastic bag. Add 2 drops each green and yellow food coloring; seal bag. Shake to evenly tint coconut. Arrange on tops of coated marshmallows. If desired, pinch coconut into a mohawk cut before placing on marshmallows.)

LET marshmallows stand at room temperature 2 hours or until chocolate is firm.

CUT each of the remaining marshmallows crosswise into 4 pieces with clean kitchen shears. Cut v-shaped notch out of each piece for the shoes. Dip cut-sides in colored sugar. Attach 1 notched marshmallow to bottom of each chocolate-covered marshmallow with a dab of the remaining melted chocolate.
DECORATE coated marshmallows with remaining decorations as desired. For bolts: Cut pretzels into 1/4-inch lengths. Insert 1 pretzel piece into each cereal ring; insert 2 pretzels into opposite side of each marshmallow, securing each with a dab of melted chocolate. For eyes, nose, scars and other hair styles: Decorate marshmallows with remaining ingredients as desired.

Hey Debbie...These treats look r-e-a-l-l-y good and are adorable. I plan to send the recipe to my sister so she can direct one of her sons (particularly the one who does cupcake wars with his daughter)or daughters-in-law to make these for the grandkids.

I'm also going to include the "witch hats" you posted. Thanks. ~Nancy

Hi Nancy! As I get older I believe the easier the better. I'll be posting another cute Halloween treat that also requires no cooking. No cooking...no mess:)

Hope you're doing well.
