Halloween is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about some treats you can make for the holiday. Whether you’re responsible for the kids’ bake sale or you’re having your own party for you and some friends, it’s time to get cookin’!
Here are some tasty treat ideas for the coming holiday.
Apples are in season this time of year, and they are a fruit you can really have fun with. Apples can be dipped in sugar, caramel, or chocolate, and all these possibilities allow you get really creative with your ingredients. You can make Jack The Skeleton apples, Snow White apples, or spider web apples. Whatever you decide, get your mixing bowls and other baking tools at a good price from Bed Bath and Beyond.
“Pumpkin” Chocolate Pretzels
If scary isn’t really your thing, then there are plenty of other ways to welcome in Halloween. Use some orange and green food coloring in white chocolate to make a pumpkin out of pretzels. Dip the pretzels into the chocolate, let it harden in the refrigerator and viola! You got yourself some tasty pumpkin pretzels! Get your ingredients from Amazon Fresh for a bargain, delivered right to your door.
When it comes to baking cupcakes, the options are truly endless. And, who doesn’t love cupcakes? When it comes to this tasty treat, it’s all about the frosting. Making a batch of orange and black with little spider webs on top, or go for orange and black to decorate with ghosts and skeletons. You, your friends, and of course the kids, will love them!
Easy M&M Crafts
For those who are more artsy people than cooking-people, this one is for you. Get a bag of orange M&M’s, white M&M’s, black M&M’s, or another candy with those colors. (Which shouldn’t be too hard this time of year.) Then, get empty jars from Annie’s Catalog, put one color all inside, and draw faces on the front. For orange, draw a Jack-O-Lantern, for white, a ghost, etc. Yum!
Candy Corn Monster Munch
Not everyone loves candy corn, but it’s the kind of treat you just happen to find yourself eating a lot of when Halloween season comes. If you like candy corn but you’re not too keen about it on its own, then mix it up with some pretzels, chocolate, popcorn, and peanut butter. The Candy Club should have what you’re looking for at a discount!
Now you have all the tasty treat ideas you need for your Halloween festivities, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg bone! Enjoy!
