Bakeries and cake shops warn that the witching hour is almost at hand. Homes are transformed from their lovely suburban colors and decor to spiderweb covered, ghost-infested haunted houses. Young and old are buying or making their costumes. What to be this year? Your favorite superhero or a bunch of grapes? Oh, the possibilities are seemingly endless!
Children are ready to travel from door to door collecting sweet treats. Although their little pumpkin buckets will be filled to the brim with wrapped chocolate bars and other store-bought goodies, why not add a little something extra this year and make some delicious homemade treats for the little ones in your life.
These Halloween inspired treats are sure to delight kids and adults alike, much like the sweets from the bakery stores:
Take a red apple, like a Macintosh or Red Delicious, and leaving the skin on, slice with an apple slicer to remove the core. Take one slice and slice it again, lengthwise. Lay one-half flat on a plate, spread a layer of peanut butter, then arrange a row of marshmallows across the front. Spread a player of peanut butter on one side of the other half of the apple slice and lay that on top of the marshmallows. The end result will look like a big toothy grin!
Fill a clear cup with chocolate pudding. Crush Oreos and spread that on top of the pudding. Take a Nutter Butter, Vienna Cake, or any other kind of long, rounded cookie. Write RIP in icing on the top of the cookie and place that in your pudding ground! It is a chocolaty, yummy treat that everyone can enjoy.
There are plenty of ways to decorate your favorite kind of cupcake (we suggest pumpkin) to give it that creepy edge. You could go for an orange icing and decorate each like a jack o lantern. This would be a great activity for your child and their friends. Have the orange iced cupcakes ready to go and let them go to town drawing on faces with black icing! Or for a cool spider web effect, after icing your cupcake in your desired color, draw 4 circles with a contrasting color (like the rings of a tree). Take a toothpick and starting in the middle draw a line to the outside like the spoke of a bicycle wheel. The resulting effect will look like a web!
Bakery shop owners hope that everyone has a fun and safe Halloween with lots of sweet treats! Remember for those extra special celebrations, their stores can bake and decorate a cake to your likely with any theme – including Halloween!
