Ingredients

  • Twinkies
  • 1 bag of green candy melts
  • Chocolate jimmies
  • Candy eyes
  • Black decorating icing
  • Cookie sticks

Instructions

  1. Place Twinkies in freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet or cutting board by covering with parchment or wax paper.
  3. Melt candy chips either using a candy melting pot, or by microwaving 30 seconds then stirring and repeating until melted.
  4. Insert top 1/3 of cookie stick in melted candy. Place in center of Twinkie.
  5. Place the Twinkies on a wax paper lined baking sheet and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to allow the candy to harden. This will ensure the stick stays on place.
  6. Coat each Twinkie in melted candy and roll to allow the excess candy to drip off.
  7. Before the candy begins to set, dip the top of each Twinkie in the bowl of Jimmies to make the hair.
  8. Place the Twinkie on the wax paper lined baking sheet and put back into the freezer for 10 minutes or so, until candy coating is set.
  9. Using a knife carefully trim excess chocolate that ran off the sides of the Frankenstein Twinkies.
  10. Using the melted candy as "glue", place 2 eyes on top 1/3 of the Twinkies.
  11. Do the same with the black Sixlets, placing on each each side of the Twinkie for the bolts.
  12. Allow to set for 3-4 minutes.
  13. Using either a toothpick or icing tip, add the scar and mouth.

Recipe Notes

The melted candy should be very liquidy
If you are having difficulty getting them to melt that thin, add a small amount (1/2 tsp) of shortening and stir. Add more as needed in small increments.
