Tips to Make This Halloween Party Dessert

  • First, you definitely need to involve the kids. They’re going to have so much fun making this Halloween treat idea. The candy melts aren’t so super hot that they can’t touch it, but if you’re sincerely concerned, put the marshmallows on a bamboo skewer or toothpick.
  • If you wanted to turn these into Halloween marshmallow pops, you can stick a lollipop stick into them after dipping them in the yellow candy melts.
  • Make sure you’re using a microwave safe bowl for this kid friendly snack, because the chocolate candy melts will ruin a non-microwave safe bowl.
  • I wouldn’t call this one of those allergy-friendly halloween desserts because it does contain dairy (in the candy melts), but because it doesn’t contain peanut butter or gluten, it is free of several “typical” allergens. So, if you wanted to bring this to a Halloween school party, you will likely be able to.
