quick & tasty halloween goodies

we want to share some super easy halloween goodies with you today.
(these are actually easy enough that the kids could help out too!)

first up:

chocolate ghost pops
 you'll need:
pretzels
white candy melts
mini chocolate chips
plastic baggie or squeeze bottle
wax or parchment paper


all you need to do is:
  1. following the directions on the bag, melt your chocolate
  2. cover a baking sheet with wax paper and lay out your pretzels
  3. put your melted chocolate in the squeeze bottle or a baggie with the corner snipped
  4. trace an outline of a ghost shape and then fill it in with chocolate
  5. give your ghost friend some chocolate chip eyes
  6. stick the cookie sheet in the freezer
  7. it only takes about 10-15 minutes until your ghosts are ready!
so cute and yummy!  :)

next up:

rice krispies mummies
you'll need:
white candy melts
boxed rice krispies (the perfect shape)
candy eyeballs
popsicle sticks
plastic baggie (snip the end larger than normal about 1/4")
wax or parchment paper


all you need to do is:
  1. following the directions on the bag, melt your chocolate
  2. unwrap your rice krispies treats and stick the popsicle sticks in
  3. dip your treats into the chocolate and then set on your baking sheet that's been covered in wax paper
  4. stick them in the freezer for about 5 minutes
  5. using a little chocolate as the "glue" stick your eyeballs on
  6. then with your chocolate in your baggie - "wrap your mummy"
  7. stick them in the freezer so they can set up for about 10-15 minutes


then enjoy. 
now when our little taste testers got home from school they filled us in on a little secret.... they were a bit too chocolaty. so...  maybe skip dipping them? or just dip the front sides and not the entire thing.
 i really don't know if there is such a thing as.... too chocolaty though??

chocolate overload or not... you have to admit... they are pretty cute!!   :)

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

here's a few other fun ideas i've seen lately...
