7. Ghost Meringues
These Halloween treats just keep getting easier and easier! For these ghost meringues, you can simply buy vanilla meringue cookies from Trader Joe's for about $3. I'm sure that you can purchase them from other grocery stores as well. Use a food coloring marker to draw on ghost faces, and you've got a super fun party treat for Halloween.
8. Yummy Mummy Cupcakes
I think I know why Halloween is my favorite holiday– I LOVE sugar! I also look forward to making cute and spooky treats “for the kids” every year. To make these mummy cupcakes, you will just need your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, vanilla or cream cheese frosting, and candy eyes. Once your cupcakes are completely cool, use a bit of your frosting as a glue to hold the eyes down, and then use a pastry bag with a ribbon decorating tip, and pipe strips across the cupcakes in a criss-cross pattern, avoiding the eye area. That's it! Aren't they cute?
9. Vampire Teeth Cookies
These are probably my favorite Halloween treats to make because the kids always get a huge kick out of them! That, and they're so easy to make. You will just need store-bought chocolate chip cookies (or you can make your own if you want), mini marshmallows, red decorating gel or frosting, and almond slivers.
Cut your cookies in half (make sure that you use a good knife and that your cookies are the softer kind or they'll just break into pieces), and then use the gel or frosting as a glue to hold your marshmallows in place. In addition to the outer rim of the cookies, you will also need marshmallows in the center of the cookies to keep them stable. Place the almond slivers in-between the mini marshmallows where you want the “fangs” to be. You may need to add a little extra frosting to the almonds to keep them in place.
If you're making these for a party, assemble them the day of so that the marshmallows will still be soft. They don't keep well sitting out too long. These are great for school parties! The kids think that they are SO cool. 🙂
