It’s October which means it’s time we start thinking about Halloween! We’ll be posting Halloween-themed treats on the union chef blog for the entire month of October so that you’re ready for any party or gathering this Halloween.
With costumes to be assembled, a house to be decorated and candy to be purchased, there isn’t always a lot of time for cooking during Halloween. This recipe for marshmallow witches is easy and requires absolutely no baking which also makes it fun and safe for kids to help assemble!
These marshmallow witches make the perfect Halloween snack for any party – and let’s face it, they’re frightfully adorable.
Ingredients (purchase from your local unionized grocery store):
½ cup Betty Crocker vanilla frosting, divided
36 Hershey’s mini semisweet chocolate chips
12 large Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
1 drop green, red and yellow food coloring
¼ cup flaked coconut
12 Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers
12 miniature peanut butter cups
12 Hershey’s milk chocolate kisses
1. For the face of each witch: Take a big marshmallow and use some icing to attach mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose.
2. For the hair: Combine a drop of green food coloring and a drop of water in a small resealable plastic bag. Add the coconut flakes and shake well. Then spread a small amount of frosting on the sides of the marshmallows and press the coconut hair into the frosting.
3. For the hat:
a. Spread frosting on the center of a chocolate wafer, then press a peanut butter cup upside down into the frosting.
b. Next, place frosting on the bottom of a chocolate kiss and place on top of the upside down peanut butter cup.
c. Combine 3 tablespoons of frosting in a small resealable plastic bag and drop in yellow and red food coloring to create orange. Cut a hole in the corner of the bag and use the orange frosting to secure the peanut butter cup to the base of the hat.
d. Lastly, attach hat with frosting to the head of the witch.
