If you’ve spent any time on this blog, you know I have an insane sweet tooth! You probably also know that I love to make fun holiday treats for the kids and me. What I don’t like are those insanely difficult, time consuming creations that you can sometimes fall prey to on Pinterest.
Here are a few stupidly EASY Halloween treats that will give you street cred with the kids, but require little to NO work!! You’re welcome!
First up are these cute Pepperidge Farm Milano Mummy Cookies.
To Make: In a microwave safe bowl, melt Ghirardelli white chocolate Melting Wafers according to package directions. Dip your favorite flavor Milano cookie into the melted chocolate. Let them begin to harden on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Take the remaining melted white chocolate and spoon it into a Ziploc bag. Cut a VERY small hole in one corner of the bag. Now use it like a pastry bag to squeeze the “mummy” design across the cookie. Add on 2 candy eyes and let cool for 1-2 hrs.
My kids went crazy for these Witches’ Broomsticks that combine sweet & salty!
To Make: Carefully unwrap Reeses Peanut Butter cups from both the foil and the paper wrapper. Line up the peanut butter cups on a tray. Carefully insert a pretzel thin into each peanut butter cup. I then took a small piece of a Twizzlers Pull’n Peel and tied it around the pretzel.
How long do you think these spooky witches’ hats will last on your dessert table? Lets just say that my teen son and his friend took a whole tray of them down…fast!
To Make: You’ll need to revisit your childhood and purchase a box of Nabisco’s Famous chocolate wafers. You’ll thank me! Lay the cookies on a platter. Unwrap a Hershey kiss and generous dip it into a tub of chocolate frosting (I do mean generaously). Place a Hershey kiss firmly on top of each cookie making sure to press down so a ring of frosting comes oozes out. Take your favorite sprinkles and decorate.
Little kids will really love these Spider Sweets!
To Make: You can use Oreo’s or Trader Joe’s Joe Joe cookies for these gems. Insert 4 pretzel sticks into each side of the cookie (after I took the photo my husband gently broke the news to me that spiders have 8 legs). Use chocolate frosting to adhere the candy eyes onto the face.
These graveyard cups are a silly spooky addition to any dessert mash-up!
To Make: My kids are oddly obsessed with Jell-O pudding cups. If you can’t beat them, I say join them which is what I did with these graveyard cups. Put some of the Nabisco Famous Chocolate wafers that you’ll have leftover from the witches’ hats into a Ziploc bag. Crumble the cookies with a rolling pin. Pour the cookie crumbs on top of the pudding and decorate with Peep tombstones & ghosts and candy corn pumpkins.
