Get Weird with Dandies this Halloween

Get Weird with Dandies this Halloween!

Candy corns, creepy skulls, monster mouths and Jack-o-lanterns! Do you know what this means? It’s Halloween!!!! Here are some fun and freaky treat tips and ideas to help you celebrate using Dandies Marshmallows!


Put Dandies Pumpkin flavored Marshmallows in EVERYTHING! Fall is pumpkin-everything season and our new Pumpkin Dandies are here for you! Put them in your coffee, cookies, crispy treats, brownies, or just shove whole handfuls into your mouth at a time! These are being sold in limited quantities, so get them while supplies last.


Make a batch of our Pumpkin Spice Crisp Treats and add a few drops of orange food coloring to your marshmallow cream. Instead of pressing mixture into a pan, roll into baseball size balls. Dip some cashews into melted vegan chocolate, and let harden. Stick a chocolate covered cashew into the top of a crispy treat ball. Decorate each ball with a jack-o-lanterns face using black icing.


You have probably seen this cute and easy snack idea all over the internet by now. Most recipes call for using peanut butter, which is great and simple, but I prefer making a quick date caramel and using that instead. What’s a fall season without a delicious caramel apple?


To make these super cute little candy corns I used Fork and Beans recipe for Vegan Marshmallow Hearts and just switched out the food colorings to yellow and orange to make them look like candy corns! Oh, I also used Pumpkin Dandies…because you know….pumpkin everything..


You scared? Make a batch of Crisp Rice Treats and sculpt mixture into the shape of a skull. Stick two regular size Dandies into the gaping empty eye sockets (GRAPHIC! Sorry!). Use some Dandies Minis for the teeth, and decorate the whole thing as creepy as possible with black frosting. For bonus Halloween points, garnish with Surf Sweets Vegan Sour Gummy Worms!


Let’s face it, kids love gross stuff. Literally WOW the children by dipping Dandies Minis into some green colored glaze. Here’s a simple glaze recipe:


  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Non Dairy Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • A couple drops of green food coloring


Whisk all ingredients together, until smooth! Stick a tooth pick in each marshmallow and dip into the glaze and let dry on a piece of parchment paper. Next step is to of course feed the monster boogers to your children :).
