Frankenstein marshmallow - because I aim to please
I once referred to a s'mores brownie recipe as a 'Frankenstein recipe'. So, lately I've been getting a lot of hits for Frankenstein marshmallows and Frankenstein graham crackers.
I hate to disappoint so I took a crack at a Frankenstein marshmallow. It wasn't easy since Wilton candy melts are made on the same machinery with peanuts and my white coating needs an oil-based coloring which I couldn't find. I used gel food coloring which was okay but the coating doesn't melt quite as well with it. I used chocolate for the hair, chocolate Twizzlers for the bolts, half a Sixlet for the nose and some icing for the eyes, mouth and scars. I didn't bother with ears.
I made one! I would never ever want to make a bunch of these. I am really not a fan of food that looks cute but doesn't taste that great. This is certainly edible but let's be honest, it's not exactly delicious. I doubt anyone is sitting around craving a Frankenstein marshmallow. My son got a kick out of it but after two small bites, he was done.
So if this is what you're looking for, there it is but there are much better examples out there.
