Tia Mowry’s Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops
1 (12-oz.) pkg. green vanilla candy melts
35 (6-in.) lollipop sticks
1 (10-oz.) pkg. marshmallows
1 pkg. candy eyeballs
70 small red cinnamon candies
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ tsp. coconut oil
1. Microwave green candy according to package directions in a microwavable bowl. Dip tip of 1 lollipop stick into melted candy; insert dipped end halfway into 1 marshmallow. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining sticks, melted candy and marshmallows. Chill 10 minutes.
2. Dip 1 marshmallow into melted candy, turning stick to fully coat. Tap gently on edge of bowl to remove excess coating. Before melted coating sets, place 2 eyeballs on coated marshmallow about ½ inch from top. Place red candies on each side to create “bolts.” Insert opposite end of stick into a foam block. Repeat with remaining uncoated marshmallows on lollipop sticks. Chill until set, about 10 minutes.
3. Microwave chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwavable bowl on high in 30-second intervals, stirring until melted. Dip top ¼ inch of chilled pops into chocolate mixture, turning stick to remove excess chocolate. Use a wooden pick to drag chocolate slightly downward to form spikes of hair. Return to foam block.
4. Place remaining melted chocolate in a plastic bag; cut off a tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe a mouth onto pops. Chill until set, about 10 minutes.
