I don’t usually make special treats for Halloween. Frankly, I never really had the time. I’m always on the lookout for great themed Halloween goodies and save them for future use - meringue bones, spooky cupcakes, creepy cookies, etc. I worry that unless I start making them now, it will wind up being my grandchildren enjoying them rather than my children.
This year, I found a Halloween themed
candy coated cookie mold to be used with Oreo cookies. It had 8 sections – 4 cats and 4 pumpkins. The “Pickles” insisted I get it. Truth be told, I didn't argue with them much about it. Wilton
I've been baking steadily since the weather cooled enough to turn on the oven so we've had a pretty decent stream of desserts around the house for several weeks. I finally got a moment between the sweets (and before Halloween) to try out my new
I dipped each cookie into the melted chocolate candy and set it on wax paper to cool. Once all the cookies were coated in dark chocolate, I melted both Green Candy Melts and Orange Candy Melts and drizzled them one after another over the cookies. MUCH faster, still attractive and just as yummy. I should have known this earlier since I had the same issue with chocolate covered pretzel rods. It’s so much easier to dip and drizzle than it is to make a perfect candy mold.
I think I’ll be giving away the
candy mold. Wilton
