❤️ Why you will love this recipe

  • Quick: This healthy Halloween treat takes about 10 minutes to throw together!
  • Easy: All I had to do was melt marshmallows and spread them over the strawberries with my fingers. Check out the step-by-step photos below for the simple technique.
  • Healthy: 90% strawberries, 10% sugar. I didn’t feel bad letting my son have a few.
  • Tasty: Totally kid-approved, these strawberries are so sweet and delicious!

🗝️ Key Ingredients

  • Strawberries: My fresh strawberries were quite small as it was the end of the strawberry season. This recipe works with any size of strawberry – large or small!
  • Marshmallows: I used mini marshmallows, however, regular would be great too. I haven’t tried this recipe with vegan marshmallows yet.

🥣 How to make Halloween Strawberries

1. Wash and dry the strawberries well.

2. Melt the marshmallows.

3. Allow the marshmallows to cool a little, so you don’t burn your fingers.

4. Using your index finger and thumb, pick up a pinch of marshmallow. Open your finger and thumb so the marshmallow stretches, and cover the strawberry with the stretched marshmallow. Repeat a few times as desired until the strawberry is suitably cobwebbed.

5. Stick the candy eyes onto the marshmallow. You can use as many eyes as you like – 1 for a cyclops, 10 for a little monster!

6. Serve and enjoy!

🫙 Storage Instructions

Store any leftover Halloween Strawberries in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 3 days.

🪄 Recipe Notes & Tips

  • Dry the strawberries: Make sure the strawberries are really dry before adding the marshmallow! Marshmallow does not stick well to water. Handy when making popcorn balls, but not when you want the mallows to stick to strawberries.
  • Don’t reheat the marshmallows: I found that they caramelized, turned golden, and didn’t stretch over the strawberries as well the second time. It’s better to melt fewer marshmallows and heat more as you go so they stretch.
  • Keep one hand clean: Try your best to stick to one hand for the marshmallows, and keep the other hand clean to pick up the strawberries and add the eyes. It may be easiest to hold the stem of the strawberry for this.
