Another amazing part of Halloween is all the Treats
Sadly… I am past the stage of taking fun Halloween snacks to my kids school parties. I used to make the cutest treats. Here are some from a few years ago…
Nutter Butter Ghosts
1 pkg. nutter butter cookies
1 pkg. white almond bark
1 pkg. mini chocolate chips
Melt the almond bark according to package directions. Dip cookies into almond bark coating them all over and lay on wax paper to dry. Add 2 chocolate chips for eyes before they harden and there you have a super cute ghost.
Brownie Ice Cream Cones
The idea came from Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti but our stores in our small town did not have the Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti brownie mix or the Halloween spray icing so I had to improvise with what I could find.
Red and Yellow Food Coloring
Ice Cream Cones
I just made regular brownie mix according to the package except I used 3 eggs instead of 2. I stood my cones up in a mini muffin pan and poured the batter in about 2/3rds full. I baked them according to the package directions. I then had to mix white icing with red and yellow food coloring to make orange, then I had to try to be fancy and use a tube thing to squeeze my icing on the top with. I think I did pretty good. Then I just sprinkled the top.
I thought they came out really cute, the only problem…how in the world was I going to transport these babies unharmed????????
Are you ready for this idea???? I came up with is all by myself!!!
Dip them in almond bark and let them dry sticking to the bottom of the muffin pan!!!
Halloween Chex Mix
4 cups Corn Chex® or Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups bite-size pretzel twists
1/2 cup M&Ms
1 cup candy corn
1/4 cup orange and black candy sprinkles
In large microwavable bowl, microwave chopped baking bars uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
Gently stir in cereal, pretzels and M&Ms until evenly coated. Stir in candy corn and decors.
Spread on waxed paper or foil until cool and chocolate is set, about 30 minutes. Break into chunks. Store loosely covered.
Mummies In A Blanket
This is an all time favorite for kids
Orange Fanta or Orange Crush
Frozen Cherries or Strawberries (Cut into small pieces)
2 Large Bowls (one needs to fit inside the other and be safe to use with dry ice)
Use tongs to put dry ice in the bottom of larger bowl (I use a Big Black Cauldron or you can hollow out a large pumpkin). Put smaller bowl inside of the larger bowl on top of the dry ice, make sure it is sturdy. Fill smaller bowl with Orange Sherbet and poor orange soda over the top. Add fruit and stir. Pour warm water into larger bowl to activate the fog from the dry ice. USE CAUTION WHEN DEALING WITH DRY ICE!!!
