Frankensmores

Ingredients

16 ounces white mini marshmallows
5 tablespoons water
2 pounds icing sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
48 graham cracker squares
24 lollipop sticks
2 cups white chocolate chips
green food coloring
3 cups milk chocolate chips
chopstick or wooden skewer
foam block for cooling rack

Yield: 24 treats

Instructions

1. Place marshmallows and water in microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted. Tip: Alternatively, you can do this on the stove over low heat stirring until the marshmallow is melted. Stir in the confectioners' sugar until smooth (Image 1).

2. Using shortening, lightly grease a clean flat countertop. Knead 1/4 cup of the shortening into the marshmallow mixture as you would knead bread — folding and pressing the mixture with your hands (Image 2). Tip: Reserve the remaining shortening for keeping your hands greased as you work with the marshmallow.

3. Use a medium ice cream scoop to place one level scoop of marshmallow filling onto one graham cracker square (Image 1).

4. Place a lollipop stick in the middle of the marshmallow filling with the top of the stick about 1" from the bottom edge of the graham cracker (Image 2).

5. Place the other graham cracker half on top of the marshmallow filling and press down gently forcing the filling to ooze out just a bit on the sides (Image 3).

6. Use greased fingers to pull the filling from the sides to the corners and pinch off any excess.

7. Place the filled pops on a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before continuing. When cooled, use a paring knife to cut away any excess marshmallow.

8. Melt white chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a small saucepan filled with 1 inch of water, barely simmering.

9. When melted, add green food coloring and stir. Tip: Add food coloring very slowly until desired color is reached. Use an offset spatula to coat the front and sides of the pops with a thin coating of chocolate.

10. Place the pops back on the baking sheet and return them to the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Don't worry about covering the back, it will be covered in milk chocolate.

11. Melt 2 cups of milk chocolate in the same manner as the white chocolate.

12. Remove from the refrigerator and dip the entire back of the pop into milk chocolate. Next, dip the top 1/2 of the pop into milk chocolate (This will be the monster's hair) Use a chopstick or skewer to remove any excess chocolate (Image 1).

13. Use chopstick's tip to indicate bangs by pulling some of the chocolate further down onto the green coating (Image 2).

14. Place the pops in foam block and let harden at room temperature before proceeding.

15. Melt the last cup of chocolate and let cool slightly. Add the chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a fine tip and make a brow in the shape of an arc (Image 1).

16. Next make the eyes by making a circle of chocolate under the brow and then add a "U" shaped nose under the eyes (Image 2).

17. Finally, make a mouth with a straight horizontal line across and several vertical lines to indicate stitches (Image 3).

18. When chocolate has cooled slightly, press down any points with the back of a spoon. Allow to cool/harden completely at room temperature before serving or sliding into a clear favor bag.
