Monster Lollipops

These candy monsters may be small, but they're mighty delicious. Build the creatures around a lollipop, and slip them into tall cellophane bags tied with decorative ribbon if you're using them for party favors.
Martha Stewart Living, October 2006

Remember: When you snip, slice, or poke candies, you expose a stickiness that helps adhere them to one another. The bigger the exposed part, the stronger the bond will be.

Tools and Materials

  • Kids' scissors
  • Toothpicks (used to poke the candy and stick on features)
  • White and black gumdrops
  • Lollipops
  • White spice drops
  • Green candy mints
  • Black shoestring licorice
  • Red sprinkles

Monster Lollipops How-To

1. For each individual monster, you'll need white and black gumdrops, a lollipop, 3 white spice drops, a green candy mint, black shoestring licorice, and a red sprinkle.

2. Cut top and bottom off white gumdrop and press to top of lollipop. Cut top off black gumdrop and add for monster's hair. Cut a white spice drop in half lengthwise for arms, and cut tops off 2 more to use for legs.

3. Press the limbs into place on the body. Poke holes on "face" and add mint nose, snipped licorice eyes and neck bolts, and a red sprinkle mouth.

    The recipe "reads" lollipop and it appears to be one of those fluffy lollipops like a small round ball on a stick that already has lines
    on it. Available at a "real" candy store, or look for them in drug stores, or grocery stores. It also helps to read the recipe thru
    and look at the items needed in the provided assembly pictures. (but I though marsh mellow when I 1st looked at it.) The lollipops
    look like this but are a little harder. But I'd try a marsh mellow before running all over town.

    What about the body-the body looks like a marshmello. Where can you buy these striped marshmellos?

    does anyone know where to find lollipops shaped like this?
