Halloween Treats (School Friendly)
These treats are so simple, I almost feel silly sharing a blog about them. I created some Halloween goodies that are delicious, simple and decorative.
The “Witch” Treat
1-1 package of brownie mix
2-1 package of striped straws
3-1 sheet of black card stock to make the feet
4-Halloween cupcake wrappers
5-Hot glue gun to glue the feet to straws.
I made enough for 3 boxes of brownies, so with this recipe you will have plenty left over. Modify it for the size of you batch. If you have left over, you can use it on numerous other treats.
1-1 stick of unsalted butter (softened)
2-1 package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened)
3-1 bag of confectionary sugar
4-1 tsp of vanilla
5-Halloween sprinkles for top
6-Icing bag with large tip
Whip butter, cream cheese and vanilla until blended in a standing mixed. Slowly add the confectionary sugar until if is soft and fluffy.
Bake the brownies and allow them to cool. I used a champagne glass the size of the base of my cupcake holders to cut out circular brownies. I then took the icing and made a little swirl on top of each brownie and added the sprinkles.
I cut the straw into 4 even pieces. This gave me two set of legs.
I hot glued the little feet to the end and put them in the icing to look like a crashed witch!
1-One package of sugar cookies. (follow the instructions)
Follow the package instructions and include the 5 tablespoons of flour. Roll dough into skinny long rolls (think of fast food fry size.)
Take a knife and and add three little lines (to look like fingers.)
Place almond on the end of finger to look like nails. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon across the fingers to make them look look more realistic.
Bake at 350 for about 5-6 minutes.

Dipped “Ghost” Pretzels
4-Candy eyes and mouths
I simply melted white chocolate and then dipped the pretzels in. I laid them on a rack to cool then added the candy eyes and mouth.
4-Paper straws or sticks
I inserted the straws into the end of the marshmallows. Dipped them in melted hot chocolates and added sprinkles.
These treats were shared on my “Living with Lindee” segment on “Daytime Blue Ridge.”

All of my decorative supplies came from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
