DIY Halloween Treats

Hey guys, it’s Ro! Halloween happens to be my absolute favorite holiday! So today, we are going to be making some spooky Halloween Treats Let’s get started! The first treat we are going to be making are these simple Chocolate Pumpkin Pretzels

The things you will need, will be: Orange melting chocolates, one bag of mini pretzels, a bunch of green M&M’s and a little squeezy bottle The first thing you’re gonna do is heat up your melting chocolates in a bowl I just put them in the microwave, and then pour half of your melting chocolates into a squeezy bottle Then, take a pretzel and completely submerge it into the bowl of melted chocolate Using a fork, let the excess chocolate drip off and place it onto a piece of wax paper

To make them look more like a pumpkin, take your squeezy bottle and fill in the three holes with orange chocolate And then, finally take your green M&M’s and place them on the top to look like a little stem! Make as many of these as you want! Om nom nom nom nom! And put them on a plate to serve Our second treat that we’re gonna make are these Candy Corn Sugar Cookies The things you will need, to make these yummy cookies, will be: Sugar cookie mix, or your favorite sugar cookie recipe, flour, 1/3 cup of butter, 1 egg, yellow food coloring and orange food coloring In a medium bowl, combine your cookie mix, butter, and egg

Then, mix together until your dough is thick and smooth Doo-doo-doo-doo Now divide your cookie dough evenly into three separate bowls Using your yellow and orange food coloring, dye two of your batches of dough Once you’ve worked the dye into the dough, place it flat on top of a piece of cling wrap, and then wrap it tight

Do this to all of the colors, and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to chill While it’s chilling, we’re going to make a little bit of egg wash You’re gonna need one egg, crack it open put egg whites in one, put the yolk off to the side, and mix a little water into your egg whites And we’re gonna use this little rubber basting brush to apply Once your dough has chilled, brush the egg wash on top of the regular white dough, then place the orange dough on top

Use your egg wash again, and then place on the yellow dough You do this so the dough will stick together when they bake Wrap your dough up again and place in the freezer for one hour to chill After freezing, cut your dough into thin slices, starting at the end Using a triangle cookie cutter, or a knife, cut out the cookies and place them onto your baking sheet

Bake these cookies for about 7 minutes at 350 Degrees and then place them onto your favorite serving tray Ermahgerd! They look just like little candy corns! Next, we are going to be making a Halloween themed drink One of my absolute favorite tropical drinks are pina coladas, so we are going to be making those with a spooky twist Get ready for Pina GHOULavas! This recipe can be made with or without spirit, it tastes good either way! The things you will need will be: Coconut rum, if you’d like, 20 ounces of pineapple juice, raspberry puree, 15 ounces of cream of coconut, which is one can, 3/4 cup of water, 2 cups of sugar, 1/2 a cup of light corn syrup, 1/2 a teaspoon of red food coloring, 1/2 a cup of heavy cream, 1/2 a cup of orange juice and a bowl of ice Before we make our drink, we are going to decorate the rim of our glass by making candy blood! In a medium sized saucepan, add your water, sugar, corn syrup, it’s pretty sticky, you can use a spatula, and red food coloring dye

Heat on top of the stove until a candy thermometer reaches 310 degrees Then you’re going to remove the sauce pan and wait for the bubbles to stop popping And then you’re going to slowly dip the rim of your hurricane glass, spinning it around, into the candy, and letting the excess drip onto the glass While the creepy candy is setting, we are gonna make the drinks First, pour your heavy cream into the mixer, then add your orange juice, pineapple juice, and creamed coconut

This is also where you can add a little spirit if you’d like, 10 ounces Now turn on the blender and mix it up! bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbsh Pour all of your belnded drink mixture into a large pitcher, and now we’re going to make the drinks individually Add one cup of your mixture back into the blender with two and a half cups of ice and mix it up! Using your raspberry puree, pour in a small amount, onto the sides and bottom of the glass, then pour in your blended drink to finally our Pina GHOULavas wah wah wah wah!!!!! For our last treat, we are going to be making a Halloween themed chip dip, Frankamole! The things that you will need for this recipe are: 3 avocados, 1 bag of blue chips, sour cream, a red onion, some fresh limes, 4 garlic cloves and some black olives To make our guacamole I’m using a food processor today, but if you don’t have one, you can just mash the ingredients together in a bowl, I’ve made guacamole both ways and they both taste delicious! First, add your garlic and then 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice

And then a 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, and then mix them together Once mixed, slice your avocados and add them in and mix together until your desired texture Do you want smooth or chunky guacamole? It’s up to you! Put the guacamole onto a big serving plate and shape into a big rectangle Now for the fun part, we are going to create Frankenstein’s face I put some sour cream in a plastic bag, and I’m piping 2 circles for his eyes

Then, I’m going to cut our olives into different sizes to complete little details on his face! Lastly, I’m placing a bunch of chips at the top of his head in layers to look like hair Ta-da! Here are all the yummy Halloween themed treats we made today! We’ve got Frankamole chip dip, we’ve got Pina GHOULavas, I love pina colavas, Candy Corn sugar cookies, and Chocolate Pretzel Pumpkins!
