candy corn marshmallows

21 Oct

These candy corn marshmallow treats are darling!!  They would be great at a Halloween party.

As a side note, my friend Tammy’s daughter requested a marshmallow dipped in chocolate.  My mental wheels started turning and I the next day I presented her with a s’more treat…I used chocolate candy melts (2/3 the way up) and dipped the lower 1/3 into fine graham cracker crumbs.  I even toasted the tops of the marshmallows before I dipped them.  Yummy!

Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats

  • Wilton candy melts in orange and yellow (you can find these at Michael’s Craft Stores)
  • Campfire marshmallows (the bigger the better!)
  • lollipop sticks (also from Michael’s)
  • Crisco

To make:  microwave candy melts according to package directions.  Add a tablespoon of shortening to the melts to make the candy more smooth for dipping.  Stick a lollipop stick in the marshmallow, then dip 2/3 the way up the sides in orange.  Let cool and harden completely, then dip the bottom 1/3 of the marshmallow in the yellow candy melt.

    These are delicious! My children fight over them. 🙂 Now my children are actually writting down ideas and different combinations for Kelly to try. Poor Kelly

    My children loved these, even my daughter who claims she doesn’t like marshmallows!

    I just made these for a school Halloween festival, they are so easy and I like that its not the typical caramel apple or cookie for Halloween!

    Does anyone know how many Points Plus these have? They are looking dangerous.

      Jumbo marshmallows have 90 calories and are 2 Points Plus. One serving (16 discs) of Wilton’s candy melts has 220 calories and 6 Points Plus. I’m not sure how many servings one bag has, and I haven’t made these for a while, so I can’t accurately estimate how much candy melt is on each marshmallow. If I had to guess, I would say each finished marshmallow is 4 Points Plus. I hope this helps!
