attack of the zombie marshmallows!!!

First we had ghosts. Then we had skeletons. And now….

Just like their predecessors, these are super-easy to make.

how to make zombie marshmallow pops

you will need:*

lollipop sticks
large confetti sprinkles
black and red food coloring pens
light corn syrup


*Find the sprinkles and lollipop sticks in the craft store. You can probably find food coloring pens there, too, but I prefer Americolor Gourmet Writers.

what to do:
Lay a marshmallow on its side. Put a dab of corn syrup on the back of a confetti sprinkle with the toothpick and stick on the marshmallows where you want eyes (note some of my zombies only have one eye). Use the markers to draw dots, “x”s, mouths, eyes, blood, whatever you want. Insert a lollipop stick (if you want, see below without stick). You may need to let the corn syrup dry for a couple hours to get the sprinkles to adhere securely.

      Sally, good eye! I rely on my awesome readers to notice such things. Nope, they didn’t. These facebook pages are getting so many likes and readers and growing at a rapid pace, it’s hard to keep up with them, but most don’t ask permission or worse, LINK to sources! And when confronted, they are mean, horrible, and ask their readers to rally against the blogger who dares ask for a link. I’m leaving a comment right now. Thank you Sally!!

    good on you Meaghan
    you think a large Australian firm would know better when it comes to property rights.

    Keep up your great work!

    looks like your going to be ignored.
    you should send your followers over there to demand recognition.
    Simply not good enough :/

    • meaghanmountford says

      Yep… I hear you, Sally. Sometimes I get so upset by this kind of thing I have to turn off my computer and go look at my baby :). Though ignoring is even better than the responses I usually get, about how awful and mean I am for wanting a link to my site. Crazy, right??? But it is heartening to know there are those with ethics out there (like you and others who care about this kind of thing).

    I LOVE zombies and of course love these! I made a non edible version using air dry clay to swap with other Girl Scout leaders for Halloween. I’m sure they will be a big hit and if not, at least I love them!

      Love it Zigg! I’m going to bookmark your site, too, because my daughter just bridged to Brownies. :)

    Made these one year, time consuming but so worth it. The party these were made for, EVERYONE raved at how cute and awesome these guys were. First thing gone!
