Halloween Snacks

We are doing a Spooky Treats Tasty Tuesday for school. I was trying to come up with some great treat ideas along those lines. I found these today. They seem pretty easy. Now I am trying to decide what to bring.

Witches Wands

Dipped Pretzel Rods are instantly transformed into “Witches Wands” with a little Halloween pizazz! Put them in containers with candy corns to hold them up. The little mini buckets pictured are from the Target dollar section. SO cute!Witch Hats

One of the easiest Halloween tricks (and treats!). Place a Hershey’s Kiss on top of a Keebler Fudge Strip Cookie and you have a little hat. Use the little tubes of frosting you can buy in the grocery store baking isle. Pipe a ring around the outside of the bottom of the kiss and press onto the cookie. It will squeeze out and make the ring around the kiss. Then pipe on the bow.

A witch with a cute hat needs a broom to match! Use cookie dough to form a broom shape around the end of a large pretzel rod. Use a tooth pick to make indentations in the cookies if you want. If your cookies spread too much during baking just use a knive to trim the edges when they come out of the oven and are still warm. Then decorate as desired. I just use a packaged PB cookie mix to make it easy, but I add a bit of flour to make the cookies hold their shape better. You could also use this PB cookie dough or this sugar cookie dough.

Nutter Butters are naturally ghost shaped, which make them perfect for dipping! Give them a bath in some almond bark and put on a couple of mini chocolate chips for eyes. And might I add that white chocolate covered Nutter Butters taste really good!
