trick or treat surprise or just a snack for the kids, these treats will be a hit this Halloween season. Best of all, they’re easy to make, so you’ll have plenty of time for all you’re other holiday festivities.
I found the following recipes on www.cdkiutchen.com/recipes/halloween and they were submitted by Gary Gee, CD Kitchen Staff. I’ve tried them myself, and my grandkids loved them.
Bones In The Graveyard
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tarter
3/4 sup superfine sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons corn starch
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup dried currants
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Position 2 racks in the middle. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl beat egg whites until frothy. Add the cream of tarter and beat at medium high until very soft peaks form. Add superfine sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating 10 seconds in between additions. Add lemon zest, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat well until meringue is stiff and glossy, about 1 minute longer. Sift the cornstarch and ginger over the meringue and fold in with a large spatula,
Spoon meringue onto prepared baking sheets. Make a bone shape out of each mixture. Bake the meringue for 45 minutes. Turn off oven and let stand in oven until completely cool, about 3 hours or overnight.
Crush Oreos or other chocolate cookies until they resemble dirt. Place the dirt in a platter and spread it out. Add cooled meringue cookies to platter and decorate with spiders, gummy worms, and other Halloween candy decor.
Makes 25 cookies and takes about 2-5 hours to prepare. You can also use your own meringue cookie recipe if you like.
The following is another tasty treat I found on www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/halloween and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Prepare and frost a batch of brownies. You can make them homemade or from a box. There are some great recipes for homemade brownies at the above site. Next make a batch of sugar cookies, again either homemade or pre-made. Cut the cookies in the shape of tombstones. You can use a tombstone shaped cookie cutter or cut them freehand. Frost and decorate cookies to look like a tombstone. Put sayings like R.I.P. on them. Use frosting to attach cookies to brownie squares. Garnish them with other Halloween decor, like tiny pumpkins, goblins, ghosts, candy corn, etc.
Well hopefully these delectable creations will make a tasty addition to your Halloween menu, and give the kids a scary treat. So Happy Halloween and Bonn Apatite!
