Last minute Halloween dessert table!
October 26, 2011 § 3 Comments
Are you having a Halloween party? Are you short on ideas and not sure where to begin?
Let me help you with your dessert table. If you want to recreate the display above, I’ve broken it down into bite-size steps.
Your grocery list for this menu:
Apples, peanut butter, mini marshmellows, cake mix (don’t forget eggs and oil), frosting, writing gel or edible pen, candy melts & lollipop sticks (you may need to go to the craft store for these), chocolate pudding, oreos, tombstone shaped cookies, pretzel rods & sprinkles.
Making these desserts is fun and tasty!
I would set aside 2 – 3 hours realistically to make the food because you will have to bake for the cake pops and heat the candy melts. Once you do this it will go pretty quickly. You can find a great tutorial for cake pops and cake balls at Bakerella. If you are feeling really ambitious, you can find an eyeball specific tutorial here.
The “witches wands” will be fast because once you have heated the candy melts for the cake pops, you just dip the pretzel rods, place them on wax paper and sprinkle. Be sure to wait until they dry before trying to move them.
The “goblin kisses” are simply sliced apples (buy the presliced to avoid brown apples) with peanut butter spread to make the mini marshmallows stick. “Chocolate graveyards” are even easier – chocolate pudding topped with crushed Oreos and a cookie tombstone. Use the same gel pen as you did for the “ghost pops”.
I hope this easy menu helps save you time and energy so you can enjoy your Halloween!
