Marshmallow Witch Recipe


  • ½ cup vanilla frosting, divided
  • 36 miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 1 drop each of green, red, and yellow food coloring
  • ¼ cup flaked coconut
  • 12 chocolate wafers
  • 12 miniature peanut butter cups
  • 12 milk chocolate kisses


Take a big marshmallow and use some icing to attach mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose. Then take a small plastic bag and add some food coloring to it with a little water. Add some sweetened shredded coconut and shake. Using the icing, attach the hair. Then make the hat with large chocolate wafers. You can use mini peanut butter cups or Rolo caramels topped with candy corn.

If you plan to display your marshmallow witches, add a little icing to the bottom to make sure they stay put and don’t fly away!
