Halloween Treats

 A couple of weeks ago, Mrs. L over on Brooklyn Limestone asked me to share some Halloween fun as part of her Ghoulish Guests series. Since I'm sure many of you are like me and are spending this week getting ready for Halloween parties this weekend, I thought I'd share the treats again in case you missed them the first time!

When I think of Halloween, the first thing that comes to mind isn't spooky goblins or a dancing skeleton. It's not even spiderwebs or black cats. It's quite clear that I've still got a lot of kid in me because the first thing I think of when it comes to Halloween is candy.


Don't you remember trick-or-treating through Halloween nights as a kid, scouring every house in the neighborhood for the best candy? My sisters and I would run back to the house afterward and spend hours sorting through our loot. And even though I don't have kids of my own yet, I like to make trick-or-treating extra special for the kids on our block. Who am I kidding... I enjoy the edibles too!

With a few simple and quick projects, it's easy to turn ordinary Halloween candy into a spooky smorgasbord. Muah ah ha ha ha (that was an evil laugh in case you didn't get it, ha!).


MUMMIFIED MILK CHOCOLATE



I can't even get over how adorable these are. And easy! Glue a couple of googly eyes onto a chocolate bar, then wrap each bar in a thin white streamer paper. It's so easy, you won't even have to call your mummy for help.

SKELETON SMILES


What's creepier than a decrepit skeleton mouth? Not much. For those of us who want to push a little nutrition on the kiddos come Halloween night, this easy mix of apple slices, peanut butter and mini marshmellows will do the trick. In fact, you can scare your kids even more by telling them their teeth will look like this if they eat too much Halloween candy... EEK! 

EDIBLE EYEBALLS



How do you make "EW!" and "YUM!" fit into the same sentence? These edible eyeballs. Simply cover Oreos (I prefer double-stuffed myself!) in melted white chocolate and top with Lifesaver gummies and an upside-down chocolate chip. Cool in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours for optimum eyeball crunchiness.


So there you have it! Some of my favorite Halloween candy projects. Please tell me I'm not the only one around here with a sweet tooth?!

Oh and speaking of Mrs. L over at Brooklyn Limestone... she is the queen of Halloween. She throws the best Halloween themed parties every year. And word round the campfire is that she's sharing details of this year's soiree on her blog this week! Go check it out.

  3. Those mummies are so cute! I would love to make them for all of our tricker treaters but we usually get about 90 kids! By the way - thank you for your encouraging comments about my mantel. I guess I am my worst critic! Have a great day!

  9. Those milk chocolate bars are SUPER cute! The kiddos at our office usually come trick or treating -- I will have to do this for them to compete with the guy that does ghost pops by wrapping a kleenex around BlowPops!
