Edible Frankenstein


Graham crackers (regular or gluten free)

Green melting chocolate

Black writing icing

Dark blue M&Ms

Jumbo green jelly beans

Yellow candy eyeballs


  1. Melt chocolate in microwave according to instructions.
  2. Break grahams into perforated square sections. Coat each graham cracker with a thin, even layer of melted green chocolate. While still wet, make a face in the middle by sticking on eyes and gummy nose. Cut jumbo jellybean in half to form ears on either side of the graham cracker. Place dark blue M&M on each side of the neck to represent bolts. Once chocolate is dry, use black writing icing to add hair at the top, and a mouth below the nose.
  3. Get creative making pumpkins and ghosts as well by using orange or white melting chocolate instead of green, white candy eyes and black writing icing for faces, pumpkin stripes. Add green for pumpkin leaves and a small pretzel stem.
