I love a good theme, so obviously Halloween is totally up my alley. Anytime I host, I like to keep things fun and festive, so this year for my Halloween gathering, I will be putting out cute little sweet treats that are just a little bit spooky. Here’s what I made and how I made them (with a ton of help from my super creative and crafty sister!)
Melt white chocolate wafers according to package directions. Using a spoon, drizzle pretzels with the white chocolate. Add candy eyeballs before the melted chocolate hardens. Optional: drizzle a little more melted chocolate to slightly cover eyes. That’s it!
Melt white chocolate wafers according to package directions. Add in food coloring/green decorating gel and mix. Spoon melted chocolate over pretzel rods to cover completely. Cut almonds in half along center (like hot dog bun style so they’re still in the same fingernail shape). Paint the nails with the black decorating gel and secure at the end of the pretzel rods. Using the toothpick, create knuckle wrinkles in the middle of each rod as well as below the nails. Let the chocolate harden and you’re good to go!
Cut Biscoff cookies in halves. Melt white chocolate wafers according to package directions. Mix in black decorating gel to get a grey color. Using a butter knife, cover cookies in melted chocolate and refrigerate. Once hardened, use a toothpick to write RIP on cookies. Place upright on serving platter and add more melted chocolate around base to make it stand up. Enjoy!
Pretty Vampire Lips
sugar lip candy
white icing (you can use the leftover melted white chocolate from the other recipes instead!)
This is definitely the easiest one. Simply cut the mini marshmallows diagonally. Slightly roll each piece using your fingers to create a cone shape. Secure on the lips using white icing. All done!
How adorable are all these little treats?! And so super easy. The best part is that it doesn’t have to be perfect, because it’s Halloween and everything is a little creepy and decayed, so this is not the time for perfection anyway! I didn’t include the little ghosts because I used antlers from a Christmas cookie kit and I feel like that’s too specific to find that shape. But it can totally be done just using cookie dough, white chocolate melts, and black decorating gel!
