It’s October 1st and it’s time to start thinking about Halloween! In forty three years I can only remember not dressing up once. My front yard transforms into a graveyard. I honestly think I enjoy Halloween more than my children. Well maybe not my youngest because he is the “candyman” of our family. In any event, here are two of my favorite treats to make at Halloween and they always are a big hit yet simple to make.
Just make your standard gingerbread men with whatever recipe you choose but to add a ghoulish touch by using white icing to decorate them as little skeletons.
How about trying these delish Ghost pears?
Another simple yet different and adorable treat to make. All you need is wax paper, pears, popsicle sticks, white chocolate chips, crisco, and milk chocolate chips.
In a pot melt some crisco along with white chocolate. Push the popsicle stick in the top of the pear. Dip the pear in white chocolate. You may have to dip, let slightly dry and dip again to get a nice white coat of chocolate on the pear. Add two chocolate chips to make the eyes. Put on wax paper and refrigerate until ready to serve.
For a mother of three boys these treats are easy to make, a bit different and lots of fun! The kid’s and adults will love them. I hope you have a Happy Halloween and please do share:
