Halloween is almost upon us and I am so EXCITED! This can feel like a stressful time of year though. Getting all the costumes together, the parties, food assignments you’ve been given and not to mention the kids have class parties. I have a couple ideas that I found that I wanted to make for you and share how I did them! I know with some schools you’re not allowed to take homemade treats so there are some that are store bought that you can spice up a little and make you look like a total rockstar. Cute doesn’t have to be stressful!
Homemade halloween treats
These little candy corn jellos were so easy to make. They turned out better than I had expected!
Items needed for this treat: lemon and orange jello mix, whipped topping.
Prepare the lemon jello first.
I poured it into the bottom of a cup(I suggest a clear plastic one) let it set up for an hour or so.
Prepare the orange jello *Tip* when pouring it on the lemon jello, pour it onto a spoon so it doesn’t put a hole in the lemon. The orange jello is warm and can melt the lemon. Let it set up for another hour.
When ready to serve put some whipped topping on top to create the top of the candy corn.
Easy and done!!
Rice Krispy Pumpkins
Items needed to make these: rice Krispy cereal, butter, marshamallows, spray oil, red and yellow food dye, and tootsie rolls.
Make these just like you would regular rice krispy treats but before you add the cereal add in orange food dye, I did 2 drops red to 5 drops yellow. I wanted mine very orange so I added in more food dye until it was the color I wanted.
Add in cereal and remove from heat.
I rubbed my hands with spray oil to prevent the rice krispys from sticking to me. I picked up a little handful and shaped it into a ball and put it on a cookie sheet to cool.
Once they were mostly cooled I stuck a tootsie roll into the top.
These are as easy as 1, 2, 3
Items need are Fudge striped cookies, orange candy melts, and Herseys kisses.
Lay out fudge striped cookies upside down.
Melt orange candy melts(in microwave for 30 seconds at a time)
Use a plastic baggie to create a piping bag and cut the very little tip off.
Put a ring of melted candy melts around the inside top of the cookie and push a Hersheys kiss on top.
See? Easy as 1, 2, 3!
