Gather the ingredients for these Monster Marshmallow Pops. 

Not very many ingredients in these “pops”  Marshmallows instead of cake balls,  Candy melts to dip them in, and decorations for the hair, eyes, and nose.  You can find the candy melts here.  

 I used dark blue, apple green, turquoise, and pink.  The candy melts come in lots of colors, so scroll down for more color options. 

 Also, the sprinkles for the hair are usually in the baking section of your local grocery store.  Click Here for the eyeballs.

Lastly, the sticks for holding the pops.  I had some green paper straws that I cut in half, and they worked perfectly.  However, cake pop sticks will also work great.

Melt the candy melts in the microwave.  For about 4 pops, use 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of candy melts—microwave for 10-second intervals stirring between, until the candy is a melted smooth consistency.  

Spread the candy on a marshall the has a stick inserted into the middle of it.  

Decorate with 2 small eyeballs and a sprinkle “dot” for the nose.

Servings 12 pops
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • green paper straws

  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 1 cup candy melts total of 1 cup in assorted colors. Blue, Green, Pink. about 1/3 cup of each color.
  • assorted sprinkles for the "hair"
  • small candy eyeballs


  • Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 10-second intervals, stirring between intervals until melted. If the melted candy is too thick add a little vegetable shortening and stir it in to thin the melted candy.
  • Cut the green straws in half and insert them into the marshmallows like a cake pop stick.
  • use a knife or off-set spatula to apply the melted candy to the marshmallow. Smooth the sides with the knife. Don't put any on the bottom of the marshmallow. The top doesn't need to be completely smooth as the sprinkles' hair will cover it up.
  • Add the sprinkles to the top, small eyeballs, and a nose to create a face.
  • Let the candy on the pop harden and the pops can be served once the candy has hardened or can be stored in a container for several weeks.



If you want a better-tasting "candy" coating use white chocolate and add food coloring of your choice.   Make sure you add "candy" coloring not a water-based coloring. 
I spread the melted candy on the marshmallows because there is less waste.  If you are making several dozen monster pops you may want to dip them.
