Make Halloween marshmallows for a Hotel Transylvania 3 Movie Party.

Monster Halloween Marshmallows

To make our Blobby and Murray the Mummy Halloween marshmallows, I first grabbed a few supplies.

You will need the following supplies, most of which can be found at a craft store:

  • Jumbo Marshmallows
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Candy melts
  • Crisco to thin the melts if needed
  • Candy eyeballs
  • Black candy sprinkles or a Halloween mix

Make Blobby Halloween Marshmallow Pops

Once you have all the supplies, the process goes pretty quickly. Melting and stirring your candy melts according to package instructions is the most challenging as you’ll have to be patient. But your delicious prize is worth the wait!

Step 1: Assemble Blobby marshmallows

To create the lovable Blobby character, I used jumbo marshmallows and sliced them a few times to have thinner layers. I also shaved off a little around the sides so he is bigger at the bottom and smaller on top.

Sliced marshmallows are pretty sticky so you really don’t need anything else to keep them together. Use a wooden cutting board or silicone baking mat and if kids are helping, a plastic knife is not a bad idea.

Step 2: Add lollipop stick to marshmallows

Once you have your Blobby shape, pierce a lollipop stick all the way through the stack, stopping just before you get through the top slice.

Step 3: Melt the candy for dipping

You’ll need to purchase green candy melts and follow the package instructions for melting. I like to melt a little at a time, stir in Crisco to thin if needed and make sure the marshmallows ready to go so I can dip them one right after the other.

Step 4: Dip marshmallows

Dip your Halloween marshmallows and hold over the dip for a few moments to allow the candy to run off. You really want to get it in all the layers so you can see Blobby’s detail. If it’s hard to cover the entire marshmallow, spoon some of the melted candy over the bare spots and let the excess drip off.

Step 5: Decorate your Halloween marshmallows

Now comes the fun part, decorating! Blobby is so easy to make because all you need to do is add some candy eyes set a little wide. For the sprinkles, I just dipped one regular marshmallow pop and covered in sprinkles.

To create Murray the Mummy, dip in white candy, add eyes and let set. Then, once the initial layer is hardened, drizzle more melted candy over his face to resemble the mummy fabric keeping him together.
