I love easy to make treats….
You know the kind that you just assemble.
They call to me you know.
I hear them say…use me to make a broom stick..or you can eat the candy as you go.
Not that I would ever do anything like that.:)
I have been scouting recipes for “quick” Halloween treats and I have found a couple that I would like to share with you.
Very simple and with things you already have on hand.
And you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy them.
Don’t ask me how I know that.
First up is a hot chocolate mix….the recipe is below or use your favorite recipe. And then you can “dress” the hot chocolate up a bit by cutting a marshmallow in half and sticking chocolate morsels in awkward places to resemble the eyes.
Most people love hot chocolate…I know the Captain and I both do….and on this Fall morning…it was very rainy and cool…and a perfect time to have a steaming cup of chocolate.
The dry mix recipe will make about 5-6 cups of mix…which should yield you about 24 cups of chocolate depending on the size of your cups and the amount of chocolate mix you use.
We like a rich, dark chocolate…but you may prefer it to be a lighter milk chocolate.
Another quick Halloween treat is to make Witch’s Hats….you can use any cookie for the base and put a bit of frosting around a Hershey’s kiss.
Another quickie is to make Witch’s Brooms using mini peanut butter cups, a little frosting and a pretzel stick..
Really that simple
Or why not buy your cupcakes at the supermarket (or make your own) and decorate the top with Halloween picks!
Make it easy on yourself.
Last year, there were no children dressed in costumes at our door.
It seems that in some places, door-to-door trick or treating has been replaced by celebrations at churches or shopping malls in an effort to protect these wee ones.
Our church holds a trunk or treat which is so much safer.
Do you my dear readers…. have many trick or treat-ers?
Enjoy the evening, no matter how you celebrate!
