Step 3: Melt green chocolate according to package. Dip marshmallows in chocolate.

Step 4: Before green chocolate dries, dip marshmallow in purple coconut. Cover the entire marshmallow.

Step 5: Before green chocolate dries, place a candy corn on top of each marshmallow as the horn. Place a candy eye at the front of each pop. Place in floral foam to dry.

    I did a lipsync to that song as a kid! Love your pops. They are perfect! If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share.
