It's always fun to bake with the family especially during the holidays, but it's even better when it's fun and easy.
Joanna Saltz, editorial director at Delish, really came through with easy and clever Halloween treats! She joined New Day NW to share them with us.
Dracula Dentures - we used store-bought soft-baked chip cookies!
- 1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough
- 1 can vanilla frosting
- Red food coloring
- Mini marshmallows
- Slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350°. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll cookie dough into 1 ½” balls and place on baking sheets. Bake until golden, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely then cut in half.
Add a few drops of red food coloring into vanilla frosting and stir until smooth. Spread a thin layer of red frosting onto each cookie half.
Place mini marshmallows around the round edges of half of the halves. Place the remaining halves on top, then stick a slivered almond on each side to create fangs.
- All-purpose flour, for surface
- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 1 (7-oz.) wheel of brie
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 2 mini pepperoni
- 2 sliced black olives
Preheat oven to 400°.
On a floured work surface, unroll puff pastry and cut into 1” strips. Wrap strips around brie like a mummy.
Whisk together egg and milk and brush over pastry. Transfer brie to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake until brie is warmed through and gooey and puff pastry is deeply golden, 20 minutes.
For eyes, place two mini pepperonis into two sliced olives. Serve with crackers.
Other Spooky Treats:
S’mores Dip – This s'mores-inspired dip is the perfect dessert to throw together last minute. Ghost Peeps are the special ingredient!
Monster Cookies – Who knew you could make crinkle cookies from cake mix? It’s a great hack. Simply combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Plus, food coloring and candy eyeballs!
Mummy Hot Dogs – A crescent roll classic, but these mummy hot dogs are the best because they are stuffed with cheese and brushed with melted butter before baking.
Monster Munch – The ultimate Halloween party mix of kettle corn, candy corn, M&Ms, pretzels, and melted chocolate. You can also make with candy leftover from trick or treating.
