Welcome Back to Easy Desserts,
Last year around this time we made my favorite Halloween monster, Frankie (Frankenstein’s Monster) and made him into FrankenMints, so this year I thought we’d make Lily aka the Bride of Frankenstein and make Ms. FrankenMints. Frankie worked well with SupaCute’s Jili cups I thought Lily would look better in the Joli cups.

The Bride of Frankenstein, she wasn’t given a name in the movie, for that matter nor did the first monster. Both created by Henry von Frankenstein. By 1964, the monsters were given names, Herman and Lily Munster, from the TV show “The Munsters”. In 2014, the name Lily Frankenstein was used in a horror drama series called “Penny Dreadful”. But to me they will always be Frankie and Lily.

On Monday, April 22, 1935, The Bride of Frankenstein was released and became the first sequel for Universal Pictures'. It’s considered one of the few sequels to be a great film that is even better than the original film on which it is based.
The Bride of Frankenstein received an Academy Award nomination for Best Sound Recording.
As I looked for fun facts I found the above picture of Elsa Lanchester and Jack Pierce with a behind the scenes look into the makeup of The Bride Frankenstein.
What You’ll Need:
1 box white chocolate pudding
1 drop green food dye
1/4 teaspoon of mint extract (not peppermint)
24 chocolate wafers
can of frosting (see above picture)
1 Sharpie or other types of black Marker
1 Sharpie or other types of red Marker
Mix the pudding according to the directions on the box. Add the mint and green food dye and stir well. You can always add more green dye to the pudding if you like. Pour into cups, leaving a few inches from the top for the cookie crumble. Place inside the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes until set. I placed them on a slight angle, so I can try to get the look of her hair.
Chocolate Wafer Crumble Layer:
Add the chocolate wafers into a food processor and pulse until crumbly or smash in a bag. Apply the frosting and add gently spoon in the cookie crumble around the frosting.
(a side view of her is at the start of the blog, so you can see her hair)
Decorate the front of the cups with a monster’s face. With the red marker give her lips. If you’re like me and not comfortable with your drawing skill please find the steps to drawing lips below.
Feel free to add stitches too.
Enjoy these ghoulish treats up to a week when covered or unless the milk expires before.
