LJ’s Cub Scout Den is having a Halloween party this year. I needed to come up with two quick and easy but cute snack treats for each scout. I settled on Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops and Mummified Twinkie Pops.
They were both super easy to make and I found all of the ingredients plus my secret weapon at my local Walmart.
Here’s my shopping list:
1 box Twinkies
White, yellow, and orange candy melts
Cellophane treat bags
Jumbo sized marshmallows
and my secret weapon….
The Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot. I’m really bad about keeping an eye on the stove and tend to overcook my chocolate and candy, so this is perfect for me!! I use it for cake pops, chocolate dipped treats, and these projects as well.
To make the candy corn marshmallow pops, I just dipped jumbo marshmallows in the yellow candy melts, let that harden, and then in the orange candy melts overlapping just a tad. When you put them down to harden, be sure to put them on the uncovered, white side or they will stick to your surface.
The mummified Twinkie pops were made by freezing the Twinkies first (they will fall apart otherwise) and then coating them with the white candy melts. Let that harden and then drizzle white candy melt back and forth to create the mummy effect. Use extra melt to stick the eyes on.
Happy Halloween everyone!!
