Looking for some cool treats to make for Halloween this year? Well, check these out! I wanted to find some neat treats to make for my children’s school this year for Halloween.  Recipes from TasteofHome.com. 

Scary Eyeballs

The kids will squeal when they see these peanut butter eyeball treats! Recipe compliments of Shannon Blachley of Ludlow, Massachusetts. 

Servings:  40

Category:  Dessert

Method:  Chill

Time:  Prep:  50 min. + standing

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3-3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar

12 ounces white candy coating, chopped

1 tablespoon shortening

20 blue milk chocolate M&M’s

20 brown milk chocolate M&M’s

Red Decorating gel

Directions:

In a small mixing bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter and vanilla.  Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar.  Shape into 1-in. balls.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating and shortening; stir until smooth.  Dip peanut butter balls into coating; place on waxed paper.  Place M&M’s, plain side up, on top.  Let stand until set.  Use red gel to create “bloodshot” eyes.  Yield: 40 pieces.

Marshmallow Witches

These no-bake marshmallow witches are simple to make and perfect for gatherings because a dozen can be put together in about 30 minutes.  Tip:  Whip up an extra batch, put them in plastic wrap, and tie with curly orange or black ribbon for festive party favors.

 

Servings:  12

Category:  Dessert

Time:  Prep/Total Time:  30 minutes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup vanilla frosting, divided

36 minature semisweet chocolate chips

12 large marshmallows

1 drop each green, red and yellow food coloring, optional

1/2 cup flaked coconut

12 chocolate wafers

12 miniature peanut butter cups

12 milk chocolate kisses

Directions:

For the face of each witch, place a dab of frosting on the bottom of three chocolate chips; press two for eyes and one for nose onto each marshmallow. 

For hair, combine green food coloring and a drop of water in a small resealable plastic bag; add coconut and shake well.  Spread a small amount of frosting on sides of marshmallows; press coconut hair into frosting.  Place 3 tablespoons of frosting in a small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; tint orange with red and yellow food coloring.  Set aside.

For hats, spread some of the remaining frosting in the center of chocolate kisses with frosting; place on peanut butter cups upside down into frosting.  Lightly spread bottoms of chocolate kisses with frosting; place on peanut butter cups.  Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert a small star tip.  Fill the bag with frosting and pipe stars around the base of each peanut butter cup.  Secure a hat to each witch with a dab of frosting.  Yield:  1 dozen

Love those videos. I prefer the Sarah + Matt version to the Jimmy + Ben version.
