06 Oct Halloween Treats the Whole Family Will Love
Halloween is sugar season. After all, our children do go from house to house collecting pillowcases full of candy only to return home and eat it until their stomachs groan. And of course, we sneak 1 or 2 or 10 candy bars from their stash too.
Take advantage of this time of year to bake and try fun, cute treats that will get you and your kids in the Halloween spirit. Here are some recipes you can try:
Nutter Butter Ghosts
All you have to do is get a pack of nutter butter cookies, melt some white chocolate, and dip the tips in. After the chocolate cools, use mini chocolate chips for the eyes. This cookie is a cute ghost that your kids will love.
It’s so fun to see a gory Halloween treat that looks completely unappealing only to try it and realize it’s delicious. Like candy eyes and pudding brains, this marshmallow bone is delectable. All you do is stick a marshmallow on the end of a pretzel stick dipped in white chocolate. Together they are the perfect combination of crunchy, salty, and sweet.
Bugs and Kisses
This is a fast and adorable treat your kids can give to their school friends on Halloween. All you do is pack a few Hershey’s kisses with a fake spider in a plastic bag and seal with a sign that says “Bugs and Kisses”. It’s witty and it’s easy!
Get a pack of Oreos (preferably with fall-colored filling). Then put four small strands of black licorice on either side of the cookie and top with M&Ms as eyes attached with frosting.
This is a more savory type of Halloween treat that your kids will love getting in their lunches. It also serves as a great appetizer. Fillet string cheese and attach it to the end of a pretzel stick. The cheese acts as the broom and the pretzel acts as the stick. Tie a tiny stand of chives around it as a bow for a completed, witchy look.
Frankenstein Cake Pops
These are very time-intensive, as all cake pops are. They require lots of patience and fondant icing. Bake your cake pops and roll them with dark green fondant, and then finish with black bolts, hair, and squiggly mouths made out of fondant. This is an adorable treat that will captivate your children. Your friends will be amazed by your baking skills.
Create a rich milk chocolate parfait with ribbons of dark chocolate running through. Then add Oreo crumbles and gummy worms at the top. It will look like you’re eating worms!
Candy Corn Cupcakes
Cupcakes inherently need more work than other, no bake desserts. Infuse candy corn into the batter by blending candy corns until they’re in tiny pieces. Also create a candy corn effect in the frosting atop the cupcake by starting with yellow frosting, then orange, and then white.
Make sure you have enough kitchen storage space to store all the ingredients for these delectable concoctions. Also consider revamping your cabinets since you’ll be in there a lot with all the fun Halloween cooking you’ll be doing. At Knotty Alder Cabinets, we offer the best cabinets for the lowest prices.
