Tombstone Pops

Halloween will be here in just eight days!!!  I can’t believe that I just said that!  Do you want to know how many day until Christmas?  I’m not going to count … I’ll live in denial … OK, as soon as I finish this post, I will count ;)  Honestly, I’m starting to feel a little panicky … it’s normal for me.

I feel like … let me get thru Halloween … oh, I haven’t even decorated … there’s a pumpkin on the porch and a garland hanging in the dining room … does that count as being decorated?

If you feel a little pressed for time … like me … here is one last easy peasy, super simple Halloween treat that truly can be done in a very short amount of time ;)

P1030266 Tombstone Pops

This is what you will need to make 10 tombstone pops …

P1030251ed

  • 10 Paper Straws (or lollipop sticks)
  • 20 StackerMallows (flat rectangular marshmallows)
  • 4 ounces White CandiQuik (candy coating/candy melts/white chocolate) (this will be the “glue” to hold everything together and to attach decorations)
  • Various sprinkles, colored sugar, candy skulls, candy bones
  • Black edible marker (sorry, it missed the photo session ;) )

P1030252 tombstone instructions

  1. Melt the white candy according to package directions.  I put mine in a squeeze bottle (optional).  Flatten about 1″ of the straw.  Smear a little melted candy on the marshmallow and lay flattened straw on it.
  2. Smear more melted candy on top of the straw.
  3. Lay another marshmallow on top of the straw and press together the two marshmallows, add more melted candy between the marshmallows if necessary.  Let candy harden.
  4. Spread melted candy around edges of tombstone and cover with sprinkles.  Use more melted candy wherever you want to attach sprinkles, skulls, etc.
  5. Use edible marker to write messages or draw designs.

I told you that this project was easy peasy … like cut and paste … without the cutting and using real edible paste!

Here are a few easy Halloween ideas from the past …

    I’m going to Facebook these to my Nieces as they like doing stuff like them.

  3. You’re right, Brenda, looks so easy. I don’t remember seeing your monster cupcakes before–they’re really clever, too.
