(Family Features) - Scare up some frightfully fun foods for your Halloween party by treating guests to bewitching Halloween Marshmallow Pops. They make a wicked centerpiece for a sweets table or a goblin' good gift for the host of your neighborhood costume party.
These spooky goodies are a snap to make and the kids will want to join in the fun of dipping and decorating. By inserting lollipop sticks into the marshmallows first, there is less mess in dipping and more fun in eating. The real trick to this treat is using creamy Candy Melts for the coating. They melt like a dream and set quickly to create a super smooth shell.
Finish with a fiendish sprinkle of colored sugar or add a haunting icing decoration before the coating sets. If you don't have a spare witch's cauldron handy, fill a bucket or jar with small candies (such as candy-coated chocolate pieces or candy corn) and stand the pops upright to display them. It makes a scary good showpiece and everyone can easily pick his or her favorite pop.
