Halloween Party 2011 Part 1

I decided to break this into two parts…  so be on the look out for the other part coming tomorrow.

We have a good group of parents that has formed a very loose ‘playgroup’. Mostly, we all just get together periodically and do things locally.  Tomorrow is our Halloween Party! It is going to be a great today Munchkin and I made some treats to take.

I had found a ton of great ideas on Pinterest… and settled on two fun snacks!

The first we found here.

Witches Hats!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 bag of Hershey’s Kisses (unwrapped)
  • 2 packages of Keebler’s Fudge Stripes cookies
  • a tube of Wilton Orange Icing/Vanilla Icing with Orange food coloring*
* If you use the vanilla icing then a piping bag and a small tip come in handy
How to make them:
Turn the cookies upside down.  Pipe a small circle of icing around the ring of the cookie. Push the Hershey’s Kiss  onto the cookie. Then allow the icing to harden. Cover the cookies and keep airtight until serving.
Munchkin had a BLAST putting the Kisses on the hats we made for the party!
Not too shabby for our first attempt. 🙂

Witches Hats

Our second treat was another Pinterest find from here .
Halloween White Chocolate Bark
14 whole Halloween Oreos, broken up
1 1/2 cups pretzels – any shape, broken into pieces
16 ounces white bakers chocolate/ white chocolate melts
1 cup candy corn
brown and orange colored sprinkles (any Halloween mix will do!)Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 cup of the candy corn onto the prepared cookie sheet in a 9×13 shape.

This is yummy even before the chocolate!

Place almond bark in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth.Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly. It may seem like it’s not enough but just try to evenly spread it.

White Chocolate Covered

The ratio of chocolate to toppings will be off if you add more almond bark/white chocolate. Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the almond bark/white chocolate while it is still wet.

Ready too harden!

 Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces – it’s really rich. Makes around 20-24 pieces. Store in air tight container.
I’ll take a picture tomorrow of the final product! I will also post some of the crafts we end up doing too. Fall is such a fun time! 🙂 Enjoy!!!
