Monster marshmallows are a fun Halloween treat that can easily get kids in the kitchen to help.

I love making fun Halloween treats and these monster marshmallows are easy too. All you need are 3 ingredients and a little bit of time. Kids will have fun getting in the kitchen and helping too. Even though my boys are teenagers they still wanted to help make these treats. Of course, they knew they would be enjoying them too.

These treats were sent in to a school function for my kids and they were a hit. Their friends and teachers loved them. They came home empty-handed and that’s a good thing!

Monster marshmallows are a fun Halloween treat that can easily get kids in the kitchen to help.So I had a variety of candy melt colors from other recipes and projects. I just used what I had because just about any color will work for these monster marshmallows. I especially wanted to use up the pink I had because it’s not a color I use often having boys. Besides, there are girl monsters right?

A word of advice – once you have the marshmallows dipped, immediately apply the eyes, this is something younger kids can do. They will stick better than if you waited.

Enjoy these monster marshmallows on their own or add too a mug of hot chocolate for a fun and festive treat. S’mores would be another great way to use them!
