Jack-O-Lantern Marshmallow Pops For Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love crawling up into the attic to retrieve my treasured box of decorations. This year, I wanted to make something fun for my family and possibly create a new tradition! Making a batch of these Jack-o-lantern Marshmallow Pops was just what I was looking for and made a perfect afternoon of family decorating togetherness.

To create your own, you will need to gather these supplies:

  • Paper Straws
  • Extra Large Marshmallows
  • Green Gumdrops
  • Orange Candy Melts
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Plastic Baggie

To begin, firmly press your paper straws into the centers of the marshmallows. Choose marshmallows that can stand on their end without falling over. I love the extra large marshmallows because it creates more space for me to be creative when I draw their faces.

Next, melt your orange candy melts according to the package directions. Make sure there are no lumps before you begin to dip your marshmallows.

Carefully dip your marshmallows into the orange melts and make sure the candy reaches all the way to the straw.

Before your candy melts harden, place a green gumdrop on the top of your marshmallow to make your pumpkin leaf. Allow your marshmallows to harden.

Next, melt your chocolate chips. I did this in the microwave in 30 second increments.

Don’t burn your chocolate, it’s easy to do!

Scoop your melted chocolate chips into a plastic baggie and snip the end to create a piping tool. Carefully draw Jack-o-lantern faces on the fronts of all of your marshmallows.
