Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treats
No matter how old you are, Rice Krispies treats are irresistible. Spice up this classic snack for Halloween by making them in the shape of a pumpkin. While melting your marshmallows, mix in some orange food colouring. Once you’ve added the Rice Krispies, shape them into balls and add a pretzel in the centre for a stem. Mix up the sizes to create your own edible pumpkin patch. This recipe is sure to be a gourd time.
Not only did they do the Monster Mash, they ate the Monster Munch while doing so. Elevate any bowl of popcorn with treats of your choosing, such as chips, chocolate, pretzels and candy corn. This snack is perfect for parties or munching on while handing out candy. We can promise that this recipe will be a graveyard smash.
Mummy Hot Dogs
If you’re looking for a savoury option, this festive twist on crescent dogs will sure to be a hit. Simply wrap your hot dogs in thin strips of crescent dough, leaving enough room for eyes. Once they are golden brown, use mustard to add the facial features. This recipe may be a showstopper, so let’s keep it under wraps.
Cake Pop Eyeballs
These eyeball cake pops will make everyone stop and stare. Once your cake balls are firm from their time in the freezer, use some melted white chocolate as your eyeball base. Pipe on some red veins with frosting and finish it off with a chocolate pupil for a delicious, but spooky treat.
There are plenty of options to take your cookies to the next level. Add a Hershey’s Kiss to the centre and pipe a frosting band around it to create a batch of witches hats. For peanut butter lovers, break a chocolate wafer cookie in half and attach it to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Add some eyes to create some cute bat cookies. These ideas are so bloody brilliant, you’ll be overseeing desserts from here on out.
Cupcakes are another item where the design possibilities are endless. Pipe some green squiggly lines to create zombie brains, layer up three large dollops with eyes to create some delicious ghosts or use a toothpick to create intricate spider webs with frosting. Don’t worry, the spider is optional.
