Spooktacular Treat #1

Earwax Q-Tips

Can you imagine anything grosser than a q-tip covered in nasty earwax? Neither can I. But – the gross factor and that it takes 4 ingredients + less than 20 mins to make are what make this Spooktacular Treat one for the books!

Ingredients

  • Sucker Sticks OR Box of Q-Tips
  • Bag of Mini Marshmallows  
  • Caramels
  • Serving Plate/Dish

Information

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes 
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes

Instructions:

If you decide to use Q-Tips: Before ANYTHING else, use scissors  to cut off the cotton ends of the Q-Tips. Once we’ve removed the choking hazard, pop a mini marshmallow on each end of the stick & all that’s left is a quick dip in a bowl of homemade earwax! Earwax: The amount totally depends on how many Q-Tips you want to make, but you’ll need at least 12 caramels for this part. Load them up in a microwave-safe bowl (non-stick if you hate dishes like I do) and melt in 10 second increments (thoroughly stir every time the microwave beeps) Once your  caramel is melted, gently dip each end of the Q-Tip in generously (remember, your goal is the grosser the better).. Allow the caramel to cool before placing them on a serving tray. Pro Tip: Use a Q-Tip box as a prop for a more realistic look.

Spooktacular Treat #2

Easy Skeleton Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 12-24 Devil’s Food Cupcakes (cooled)
  • 1-2 Containers frosting of choice
  • 12 straws cut in half
  • Lots of white chocolate covered pretzels
  • 48 Life Savers (white)
  • 1 bag reg. size marshmallows
  • Edible marker

Instructions

To start this spooktacular treat, frost cupcakes using desired frosting (I always use chocolate so it matches – but that’s up to you) & add sprinkles for extra decoration (optional). To put the skeletons together. Press the straw firmly into the cupcake, then take one pretzel and thread the bottom hole of the pretzel onto the straw. Then add one Life Saver. Add another pretzel & Life Saver, and one final pretzel. Now, you’ll take a marshmallow and use your edible pen, draw a face & press the marshmallow down on the end of the straw until it stays on its own. Finally, break a pretzel in two to make arms and wiggle into the top pretzel!

Spooktacular Treat #3

OREO BATS 

Ingredients

  • 12 regular Oreos
  • 24 mini Oreos
  • 24 brown M&Ms or chocolate chips

Instructions

Carefully split all of the mini Oreos making sure you don’t break them.  On the mini Oreos, place M&Ms on the cream side to make eyes, and then take your frosting and use it as glue to attach the mini oreo “eyes” to a regular-sized Oreo (use pic for guidance).  Next, break a mini Oreo circle in half and using the same “glue” method as the eyes, attach to regular Oreos as ears. Finally, split a regular Oreo cookie and then break it in half. Carefully press into cream on each side of your bat to make wings. This spooktacular treat can be served as is (And taste great) or can be added as a topper for any other type of dessert imaginable.

Spooktacular Treat #4

Rotted Apples

Ingredients

  • 4 Grammy Smith Apples (Washed)
  • Wooden Sticks
  • 3/4 Cup Praline Crunch Ice Cream Topping
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Pinch Cream of Tartar
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 4 Gummy Worms

Instructions

spooktaculartreatapples

Insert a wooden stick into the top of each apple. Take a baking sheet and line it with foil or parchment paper. Use ½ Cup of your Ice Cream Topping (not the whole amount) & sprinkle it across the top of your lined baking sheet. Over medium heat, combine sugar, water, and cream of tartar. Once the mixture begins to boil, cover with a lid and let boil for 3 minutes. Uncover the pot and continue to cook the mixture until its temperature reaches 300°F or hard-crack stage (You’ll need to use a candy thermometer for this as guesstimating will result in a mess neither of us could clean up)

Once the mixture has reached the required temp, allow to remain cooking for approximately 3 more minutes. Now, you’ll take the pot and move it from the stove directly into a bowl of hot water. If you’d like your candy to be green, now is the time to add in a few drops of food coloring. Next, holding your apples by the stick, dip them one at a time into the candy mixture to coat them. Allow any excess candy to drip back into the pot and then immediately place it onto your previously prepped baking sheet. Finally, sprinkle the remaining topping over your apples & add a single gummy worm. Repeat this for each of the 4 apples. Do not remove this spooktacular treat from the sheet, or taste test until they have COMPLETELY cooled – they will burn your mouth (I know this from experience).

Spooktacular Treat #5

Banana Mummies

Ingredients

  • 4 Bananas
  • 1 lb. White Chocolate
  • 4 oz. White Chocolate
  • 16 Mini M&M’s
  • 4 oz. Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 8 Lollipop Sticks

Instructions

spooktaculartreatmummys

To begin, you’ll want to prep your pan. To do this, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Take your bananas and cut them in half. Take your lollipop sticks and skewer each banana half. Place in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours or until bananas are firmly frozen.

In a large microwave-safe measuring cup, melt 1 pound white chocolate in the microwave according to package directions. One at a time, dip the bananas into the chocolate to coat, shaking off any excess. Return to the baking sheet and immediately place two M&M candies near the top for eyes. Melt the remaining white chocolate in the microwave according to package directions and fill a small piping bag fitted with a small, round nozzle tip. Pipe zigzags over the banana to form bandages. Repeat this step with the milk chocolate, if using. Chill or freeze this spooktacular treat until ready to serve.

Spooktacular Treat #6

Mummy Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 18-20 Pretzel Rods
  • 12 oz. White Melting Chocolate (such as Ghirardelli)
  • Candy Eyeballs

Instructions

For this spooktacular treat, we will start by melting the chocolate according to package directions. Dip pretzel rods into white chocolate, covering about 2/3 of the pretzel. Gently tap the pretzel rod on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place two candy eyeballs on each pretzel rod (if they slip off, let the chocolate set for about a minute first). Place on waxed paper to set. Repeat with remaining pretzels. Carefully spoon the remaining chocolate into a zip-lock bag, or squeeze bottle(whichever you prefer). Cut a small piece of the bag’s corner off so that it resembles a piping bag. Using your bag or bottle full of chocolate, drizzle the rest of the white chocolate over your pretzels. Make sure to be super careful so that you do not cover the eyes. Ideally, once you’re finished, it should resemble a mummy. Let chocolate harden before serving.
