What you'll need:
*Mint chips (we used about 1 cup)
*Chocolate frosting and an icing bag/tip
First, melt you mint chips in a glass bowl in the microwave. Start with about 60 seconds, then stir. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until smooth. Add about 1 tsp. shortening to the melted chips and stir to make the mixture thinner.
Next, stick your sucker sticks in the end of your marshmallows and start dipping! We just covered the tops and sides of ours.
Using a knife or frosting spatula, smooth out the sides and top to square-off Frankenstein's head.
A favorite tip of ours--stick them in playdough until they dry.
Before they hardened, we added eyes using Bake It Pretty's royal icing eye balls. These are so fun and last a long time. If you're just using frosting for your eyes, wait for your mint to harden. Then use your frosting in a bag with a small decorating tip to create hair, eyes, and mouth. We added the bolts on the side of his head the same way.
Isn't he cute? With the combination of mint and chocolate, these little pops are monstrously good!
