Marshmallow Frankensteins - Halloween treats

This years treats are made by my kids. Just look at them grow!

What you need: Makes 12 pops
12 large marshmallows
12 mini skewers or lollipop sticks
1/2 cup chocolate jimmies
Edible, black writing gel
8 oz/1 cup green candy melts
1 tsp shortening

Melt green candy melts in the microwave for 60 to 90 seconds, stirring every 20 seconds to distribute the heat evenly. Add a spoon of shortening and stir it to thin the consistency.

Skewer marshmallows with the lollipop sticks; set aside. Pour the chocolate jimmies in a bowl and set aside. Dip each marshmallow and swirl it around gently. Tap off any excess dipping.

Dunk the marshmallow head into the jimmies. Prop them on styrofoam or little buckets. Once the marshmallows are cool, draw out the face details.
