Super fun Frankenstein Twinkies perfect for Halloween! This is a great family Halloween activity that turns into dessert.
I love fun Halloween recipes!
They are so great to make and everyone loves them. Today we are sharing these cute not so scary Frankenstein treats perfect for Halloween.
I know we are still over a month away but I figure if we start planning now than Halloween won't be quite so crazy! I still need to figure out what we are going to do for Halloween. I am not sure if we will be home or not.
We are working on some upcoming travel plans and I don't know if they will be over Halloween. It would be fun to dress up while traveling. I can only imagine what airport security sees during the weeks leading up to Halloween.
Do you dress up for Halloween? Have you ever dressed up while traveling?
- Snack cakes of your choice ( Twinkies, Sara Lee Devil’s Food Creme Cakes.)
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate or Candy Cocoa Melts
- Green Melting Candy Wafers
- Green Sixlets
- Small Candy Eyes
- Black Decorating Gel
- White Frosting
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
Candy Dipper - You want to use something to dip the Twinkies into the candy melt and remove them easily.
Parchment Paper - Will help keep the mess contained and protect your counters from any green or black coloring.
Halloween Serving Platter - Dish these cute Frankenstein Twinkies up on a fun coffin shaped platter or themed Halloween Platter.
These would make great Halloween Treats. You can package them in these party bags!

Frankenstein Twinkies for Halloween
- Put a sheet of parchment paper down on your counter. You will also want to open the candies and put them in their own bowl. This is a simple project, but it’s easiest to have it in an assembly line order.
- Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a bowl according to the package’s instructions.
- Unwrap the snack cakes.
- Start with the hair. Dip one end of the snack cakes into the semi-sweet chocolates. For Frankenstein, we just dipped the ends. For the Brides of Frankenstein, we dipped about half of the snack cake in the semi-sweet chocolate. You may need a knife to help spread the chocolate.
- Lay the cakes on the parchment paper to allow to harden.
- Melt the green candy wafers according to package instructions into a bowl.
- Once the hair has hardenened, you will dip the opposite corner in the green mix.
- Using the decorating gel, attach two eyes on each snack.
- Dip a Sixlet in the green candy melts and attach the nose on each snack.
- Use the decorating gel to create a smile, eye lashes or scar marks on your Frankensteins.
- For the Bride of Frankenstein, use a drawing tip or a ribbon tip and make some waves with white frosting on her hair.
