Marshmallow Ghosts

Ingredients

Marshmallows
Chocolate chips
Lollipop or popsicle sticks
Styrofoam
Decorating gel

Directions

Stick marshmallows onto the lollipop sticks, and place in freezer for about 15 minutes until cold. While the marshmallows are chilling, slowly heat one cup of chocolate chips on a simmering heat in a double-boiler, stirring constantly until the chocolate is completely melted. Remove the marshmallows from the freezer and dip them lightly in the melted chocolate for a thin coating. To lend a mummy look to the marshmallows, swirl them so layers of white wrap around the confections. Dunk marshmallows to make a twisted peak on top for ghosts. To make other dunked marshmallows reminiscent of Frankenstein, smooth the chocolate with the flat part of a spoon. Use a block of Styrofoam in which to stick the marshmallow pops for cooling in the refrigerator. After the treats harden, add faces with decorating gel. Paint eyes and mouths directly on the marshmallow characters.
