Acorn Candy Cookies

Grab a box of vanilla wafers to make this simple treat! Heat the bottoms of Hershey and peanut butter kisses and attach each one to the cookie, respectively. If you don’t want to deal with melting chocolate/peanut butter, grab a tiny dollop of icing to use as glue. Prepare to amaze your friends!

Ghosts

(Source: http://www.onecountry.com/halloween-desserts-2055552080.html) A healthy fruit treat! Grab some melted white chocolate and generously coat the strawberries. Set the strawberries on a plate so that the white chocolate trails on the plate, resembling a ghost’s body. Then, take some baking chocolate chips and apply them to a strawberry to resemble a ghost’s face! Spook out your friends with how great this treat tastes.

Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds

(Source: http://cookingwithmykid.com/2010/10/11/caramelized-pumpkin-seeds/) A great dessert idea to make with kids! Nutritious and also irresistible! After carving your wonderfully decorated pumpkin, make sure to save the seeds. Let the seeds dry overnight and sprinkle as much brown sugar as you’d like on the seeds. Bake the seeds for around 8 to 10 minutes, making sure to adjust the seeds every now and then to allow for even cooking. Enjoy – this treat is addicting!

Witches’ Hats img_2815
(Source: http://www.iheartnaptime.net/halloween-treats/) How cute are these! Another super simple dessert idea for parties. Take any cookie with a chocolate coating and use it as the base of the witch’s hat. Then place a dollop of orange icing in the center of the cookie and place a Hershey’s kiss on top. Viola!

Chocolate Mice

(Source: http://happyhourprojects.com/christmas-mice/) This is a simple and easy treat that resembles a cute mouse! All you need is some chocolate, cherries, and almond slices. Take one candied cherry and coat it in melted chocolate. While the chocolate is still warm, attach the cherry to 2 almond slices and a Hershey’s kiss. Make sure that the Hershey’s kiss is pointing outwards, so that the Hershey’s kiss resembles the mouse’s nose!

Have a boo-tiful weekend!
