Halloween Treats

Hi friends!

Now that I have taken care of decorating the inside of my house for Halloween, it is time to get serious.  Because let’s face it, the reason we all enjoy holidays so much is because it is the perfect excuse to treat our taste buds!  Yes, it is time to talk Halloween treats!!

Since I don’t have any kids, I will not have the opportunity to indulge in trick-or-treating loot once the little ones have gone to bed come Sunday evening.  And all the candy I have bought this week will have been handed out to the neighbourhood kiddies.

Problem or opportunity?  I say this is the perfect excuse to dream up some halloween treats to make and eat myself.

You having a party this weekend?  Here are some yummy treats to grace your candy buffet with.  I am not very much into gross and super scary (read: guts and blood) treats, so I have come up with some pseudo happy halloween treats:

Witch Hats

Jumbo Candy Corn

Wanna make your own?

For this project you will need: (Of course, go wild and customize based on personal taste and availability!)

  • 3 little gardening pots (mine was another Dollarama bargain)
  • floral foam
  • skewer sticks
  • 1 black feathered boa

How to:

  • Cut the floral foam to fit into the little pots
  • Cut the boa into 3 pieces and place on the top of the pots to cover the floral foam completely
  • Once the treats are prepared, place them on the sticks and arrange in the pots

Witch Hats

  • Oreo Cakesters
  • Mini ice cream cones
  • Milk chocolate
  • Halloween themed sprinkles

How to:

  • Melt the chocolate and dip the mini cones into it – let it stand to set
  • Once set, place the chocolate covered cone on top of an Oreo Cakester
  • Pipe some melted chocolate all around the rim
  • Decorate with sprinkles
  • Carefully place on the skewer stick – do not push it all the way through and just kinda let it sit on the top of the stick

Spooky Mute Ghosts

You will need:

  • Rice Crispy Treats
  • White chocolate
  • A few dollops of melted milk or dark chocolate

How to:

  • Cut the rice crispy treats into the shape of ghosts – I found it easier to cut them into triangles and then shape them by hand (remember to wash your hands!)
  • Dip the front in melted white chocolate and set aside
  • Once the chocolate is hard, use a toothpick to mark the eyes

Jumbo Candy Corn

You will need:

  • Rice Crispy Treats
  • Melted milk or dark chocolate
  • Melted orange or butterscotch chocolate
  • Melted white chocolate

Healthify (Yes, that’s a word!)

You can also use strawberries and dip them in the sequence of brown, orange and white melted chocolate for a slightly healthier version of candy corn

How to:

  • Cut the rice crispy treats into the shape of candy corn – again, shape them by hand until hey resemble the real deal
  • Dip the entire piece into melted milk chocolate – set aside to set
  • Once set, dip the top 2/3 into melted orange chocolate or butterscotch chips – set aside
  • Once set, dip the top 1/3 into melted white chocolate

Finish off your display with a homemade halloween coloured banner to greet your guests at the candy buffet!
