Who’s ready for Halloween? In collaboration with Wilton (sponsored), I’ve put together this easy spookalicious snack and counting activity. Wilton makes it so easy with their ready to use products. It took no more than 5 minutes to make these yummy monsters! Adding different numbers of eyes to each monster makes this a fun, educational and delicious activity .
Start with the Wilton Candy Melts. Their size and vibrant colors melt beautifully in the Wilton candy melting pot. The low heat keeps the candy smooth and creamy without burning or making it too runny. Using lollipop sticks and adding themed sprinkles and candy eyes make these little monsters come to life! Wilton products make it easy to create professional looking recipes.
- 1 bag Candy Melts (available in various colors)
- Candy melting pot
- Lollipop sticks
- Candy eyes in assorted sizes
- Sprinkles (available in various colors)
1️⃣ Turn the melting pot on and wait for it to heat. Once hot, pour in the Candy Melts. Stir occasionally until fully melted.
2️⃣ Insert a lollipop stick into the bottom of a marshmallow. Make sure to not poke through the top.
3️⃣ Gently place the marshmallow into the Candy Melts and turn to cover fully.
4️⃣ Add assorted candy eyes to the marshmallows. 1-10 eyes for each stick. This is where the counting comes into place.
5️⃣ Dip the top of the candy covered marshmallow into the sprinkles, adding unique hair for each monster.
6️⃣ Set the yummy monsters on a stand and place in the refrigerator or cool until you serve them.
I made a DIY stand using a piece of foam. I added some fake cobwebs to enhance the theme. Perfect inexpensive stand.
