HALLOWEEN Treats {& Video Tutorial}

Leave a comment

Last Friday was one of my favorite holidays- It was HALLOWEEN! I have always loved Halloween since I was a toddler. I love the costumes and the candy, but most of all the Halloween baking!

There are so many things that I would’ve made this year, but I settled on a couple of very simple and tasty treats that were really fun to make.

The first treat I made were these very cute mini candy corn themed cupcakes. These were SO easy to make. I basically took some vanilla cake batter and dyed half of the batter orange and the other half yellow with food coloring. Then I put a scoop of yellow cake batter in the cupcake liner and then on top, a scoop of orange cake batter. I let the cupcakes bake like usual and then piped on some white vanilla buttercream on top to complete the candy corn effect.

For decoration, I also drizzled on a bit of melted semi-sweet chocolate.

Next, I made these pumpkin shaped piñata cookies that I filled with mini M&Ms and sprinkles. These took a bit more time to make. For these cookies, I used my egg-free sugar cookie recipe with an extra 1/2 cup of sugar added to the dough.

The last Halloween treat I made were bite sized spider web rice krispy treats. I made this at the last second and it took almost no time at all to make. First I made a batch of rice krispy treats (which I have a video tutorial on). I than pressed the rice krispy treat mixture into a greased pan and let them cool. Then I took a small circle cutter and cut out a number of small circles. I then took chocolate chips ( you can use any kind of chocolate) and melted it into a piping bag (or a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off) and piped on little spider webs. Just One batch made a lot of these cute little rice krispy spiders . I took them to school the next morning on Halloween day and shared them with my friends and they all loved them!
