Where do fashionable ghosts shop for sheets?
Twenty-somethings may not go trick or treating anymore, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some treats of our own! Here are two festive recipes that are as delicious as they are adorable. They’re perfect for Halloween parties or even to bring into work!
Rice Krispie Pumpkins
I got this recipe from one of my co-workers a few years back (they’re a variation to this recipe on the Rice Krispies website, here). These are incredibly easy to make and have always been a big hit anywhere I’ve brought them. My only suggestion is to wear gloves (the disposable food handling gloves like these) when you make them; the Rice Krispies can get a little sticky..and not for nothing, but it’s not very sanitary to be rolling food in between your hands before serving it to your friends!
6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal 4 cups of Mini Marshmallows
3 tbs. Butter or Margarine Red and Yellow Food Coloring (to make Orange)
Small Tootsie Rolls (Cut in 1/2 horizontally)
As if a pizza couldn’t get any better, I bring you this amazing recipe. I saw this recipe in a cooking magazine (and of course, I can’t remember which one). I brought it to a Pumpkin Carving Party last week (it was so fun!) and everyone loved it! It’s a fun alternative from the usual cookies or brownies, and will satisfy even the sweetest sweet-tooth (including mine)!
16oz tube of sugar cookie dough (I used Pillsbury) 2 cups of chocolate chips
2 tbs of smooth peanut butter Candy*
*I found it cheaper to buy full-sized candy bars instead of the bag of fun sized. I used 1 package of Kit-Kats, 1 Milky Way, 1 Snickers, 2 Reses Peanut Butter Cups, 1/2 bag of M&Ms, handful of candy corn, handful of gummy worms, 2 Twix bars. Feel free to use your own favorites! Of course, you can always use more or less candy depending on how many “toppings” you want on your pizza.
