Can I let you in on a little secret? I once went to a Halloween party and was so sickened by the gross food on the party table, I had to leave early to keep from … well, you get the picture. If you, like me, think that blood-covered, eyeball-themed, slime-inspired eats are totally disgusting, this adorable idea for “monster s’mores”may be right up your alley.

Ditch the disgusting and make super cute Monster S’mores for Halloween this year. They’re so easy, even the busiest parental schedules allow for this fun kitchen craft.

To make these colorful, craveable party snacks, here’s what you need:

Spooky Supplies:

You’ll need to take a quick trip to the craft store and the grocery store to gather up all of the items for these easy s’mores.

Craft Store:

  • Edible candy eyes (large and small)
  • Colored candy melts (red, purple, and lime green)
  • Black and white icing
  • Disposable plastic decorating bags
  • Two #2 icing tips

Grocery Store:

  • Graham crackers
  • Marshmallows

From here, this craft gets crazy easy. Line your workspace with a large piece of parchment paper and let the fun begin! Each graham cracker will need to be dipped into melted candy melts on one side. As soon as you’ve got them coated, lay your grahams down and press in some candy eyes. Since you’re making monsters, you can let your imagination run free!

Older kids will enjoy dipping the crackers in the candy melts, and even tiny toddlers will love pressing candy eyes into place. Give your kids a bowl of eyeballs and invite them to make whatever faces they can think of. Cyclops eyes, googly eyes — everything works when you’re making monsters!

Now it’s time for a teen task (or a mama task). Pipe icing to finish off the faces. Frowns, smiley faces, and crooked grins are all welcome.

You really can’t go wrong with these adorable s’mores. Black “lips” with little white triangle teeth tend to look precious, even if you feel like you’ve “messed up.”

Can you spot the botched faces below? There were three that I was worried about, until I stood back and realized how much personality those funny little mishaps had. All’s well in monster land!

Let your cookies cool so the candy melts harden, then set them out for snack time, or party time. When you’re ready to serve, invite guests to pick their own monster, toast a marshmallow, and tuck it inside to make a spooky sandwich. They’ll love getting to choose their own monster munch … and you’ll love throwing a Halloween party that doesn’t leave you lurching.
