I’m such a fan of Halloween…maybe it’s because October is one of my favorite months of the year. Whatever the reason, I love decorating for the spookiest holiday of the year! This is the first time we decided to have fun with marshmallows and create a few not-so-spooky Halloween characters. Here’s what we came up with!
It all starts with marshmallows and tons of candy. But then again it wouldn’t be Halloween without candy. Our first project was creating the witch. We used chocolate chips, mini peanut butter cups, and Hershey’s Kisses! In addition to the candy, we also used Oreo cookies, vanilla frosting and flaked coconut.
After collecting all the parts of the witch, the kids started putting it together. Using the frosting as glue, they used the chocolate chips as eyes and a nose on her face. Then they assembled the Oreo cookie on top, then the peanut butter cup, topped with the Hershey’s Kiss. I placed the coconut hair and brim of the hat on each (this was a really messy step).
Next we made a marshmallow sprinkle treat!
Thanks to Taste of Home for the fun witches idea!
