  • 12 lollipop sticks
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • Styrofoam block
  • 24 candy eyeballs
  • 12 red-hot candies
  • 12 thin miniature pretzels, broken in half
  • Holiday sprinkles, optional


  1. Insert one lollipop stick into each marshmallow. In a microwave, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip marshmallows in chocolate mixture, turning to coat; allow excess to drip off. Insert pops into Styrofoam to keep upright. Let stand to set slightly, about 15 minutes.
  2. Decorate faces, attaching eyeballs and using red-hot candies for noses. Using a toothpick, poke two holes in top of each marshmallow; insert pretzel pieces for antlers. If desired, decorate with sprinkles. Refrigerate until set.
