These are so cute.  I'd love to make some but I can't tell what they're frosted in.  Any ideas?

"Enrobed" usually means "dipped in chocolate" or of course, colored white chocolate candy coating.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.

I was thinking of candy melts but I don't know where to buy those in town.  The colored white chocolate idea is good.  Bet I could do that.

I found a recipe for you! It is not exactly the same thing, the ones I found are ghosts, and not on sticks, but here it is.



Eat em up Ghosts
What You Need:
   1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows    1/4 cup margarine or butter    6 cups crisp rice cereal    12 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating, melted    Black licorice candy    Chocolate sprinkles    Miniature semisweet chocolate pieces

Instructions:
1. In a large pot, combine marshmallows and margarine. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is melted. Gradually stir in cereal until well combined.2. Use 1/2 to 1 cup of the cereal mixture per ghost to form into ghost shapes. Set aside to cool completely.3. Dip each ghost shape into melted candy coating. Use pieces of licorice, chocolate sprinkles, and/or chocolate pieces for the eyes, nose, eyebrows, and mouth. Makes 9 to 12 ghosts.


here is a link to the recipe with pictures

If you go with the candy melts you will have to purchase the different colors.  You really cannot color white chocolate with regular food colors, it tends to make the melted chocolate bind up and get hard and crumbly.  Cake decorating supply shops are a good resource for different colored chocolates as well as the special cocoa butter colors you can use to color chocolate.

I enjoyed the recipe and the info on why not to use food coloring.  Things I wouldn't know since I'm not that advanced with cakes and cookies.  Thanks!

I would say that the basic "pop" is a Rice Krispies bar with a popsicle stick in one end.  The covering looks like melted chocolate discs which are usually available in Michael's or a similar craft store.  It melts in the mircowave, you dip the bar and hardens in the refrigerator.  You can buy the individual colors or use paste colors on white.  Good luck.

I just bought some candymaking colored chocolate at Michaels. I've also seen it at other craft stores like HObby Lobby and even a small selection at WalMart in the craft section.

There are specialty stores for cake and candy making supplies. You might have one of those in your town. They'll have what you need for sure.
