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.
