DIRECTIONS

1.Place coconut flakes in a plastic bag with 10 drops of green food coloring. Shake until covered, then set aside.

2.Unwrap 20 KISSES Chocolate s and place in a a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring with a rubber spatula until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

3.Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap a full-size HERSHEY’S Bar and carefully break it in half. Place one half on the parchment paper. Dip the top inch of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and lay it on top of the chocolate bar half, so that 1/3 of the stick is on the chocolate bar and the rest of the stick is hanging off.

4.Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of the melted chocolate on top of the lollipop stick and spread one the chocolate bar. Be careful not to spread it to the edges. Place the other half of the chocolate bar on top of the melted chocolate so that it is flush with the bar on the bottom. Repeat the process with the other two chocolate bars for a total of three pops. Place in the freezer for f5 minutes.

5.Remove from the freezer. Holding the lollipop stick, dip the top of the chocolate bar in melted chocolate, then in the green shredded coconut. Lay the coconut-topped sucker back on the parchment sheet. Repeat with the other two bars.

6.Dip the candy eyes in melted chocolate and place on bars.

7.Place the piping tips in the piping bags and fill with colored frosting. Use frosting to pipe mouths, noses, and stitches on the monsters’ faces.

8.Pull the plumes out of the remixing 6 KISSES Chocolates, but leave the wrappers on. Dip the tips in the melted chocolate. Press one chocolate-dipped KISSES Chocolate into each side of the monster suckers. Freeze for another 5 minutes or let sit at room temperature until chocolate is firm.
