Halloween Treats

Halloween Treats

It’s hard to believe Halloween is just a month away. If you are in need of some extra special treats, here are three treat-rific ideas for your Halloween!!

Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

These little cuties take the scary out of spiders. The original recipes from A Spicy Perspective and was a huge hit on Facebook and Pinterest back in 2014.  

Although I am not a fan of a peanut butter cookie….don’t judge! These were easy to make, and cute as can be. Any cookie that has a truffle on top is my kind of cookie.

In the original post, I eluded to not being able to find the googly eyes, but they are mainstream these days and well…….Amazon!

 

Cauldron Cupcakes

Cauldron Cupcakes 5

Again with the googly eyes. Dark rich chocolate cupcakes decorated to look like a bubbling cauldron. 

Not nearly as intimidating as they look to make, green tinted frosting is decorated with edible candies. Red striped birthdays candles for witch legs with witches shoes attached with a dab of frosting.

These are by far my favorite Halloween treat…..but I do love cake!!!!

 

Witches Fingers

Witches Fingers

This recipe…..once I got the dipping part right was super easy. Let me correct that….once I got the candy coating right. See… I tried to add food coloring to white melting chocolate, take my word for it and save yourself some$$$ ( I had to throw away $5 of chocolate… it seized up when the color was added). Buy colored melts. They come in almost any color and work like a dream.

Bugles are a blast from the past for me, we used to put them on our fingers and pretend to have witches fingers…..I seem to remember the Bugles being larger. I guess maybe it just me….oh yeah….I’m larger….lol

Witches Fingers are a sweet-salty treat sure to satisfy any ghost or goblin. Place them in a plastic cauldron for a cute presentation.

Try any of these treats for Halloween party or as treats for your trick or treaters!!

Calling all campers ………Campfire Cupcakes!!

Campfire Cupcakes

I am not a fan of camping. In fact, my idea of camping is a Ramada Inn with no TV. Don’t get me wrong, I love the outdoors…..I just don’t want to sleep or pee there!! I prefer my own  bed and indoor plumbing….. Continue reading “Campfire Cupcakes”
