Hi everyone! I’m sharing another Halloween idea today.
Aren’t these Marshmallow Popcorn Monsters the cutest?
They are perfect for passing out to your little trick or treaters this Halloween!
They are made the same way Rice Krispies Treats are made … just switch out popcorn for the rice krispies!
Add green food coloring to the melted marshmallows before adding the popcorn so that these little monsters have that cool spooky color!
All that’s left is to add the little eyes, which I found at a craft store in the baking section.
Make sure to add a pair of eyes in each “square” that you’re gonna cut them into.
Wrap individually in plastic wrap and you’ve got a cool treat to pass out on Halloween night!
What kid wouldn’t love this in their candy bag??
Give your trick or treaters a real surprise with these homemade Marshmallow Popcorn Monsters!
