Halloween is such a fun time of year! I especially love the food that I get to make. My favorites are desserts of course!
Here are some of my tried and true Halloween treats that parents and kids alike love. The first is my Pumpkin-shaped Cake. It looks amazing but is relatively easy to put together. It is basically two cakes in one so it can serve a large amount of people. Great for a party!
Another treat I make is my great-grandmothers Caramel Popcorn Clusters. Originally, she made popcorn balls out of them but I wanted something that you could just nibble at without needing to eat a whole popcorn ball. So instead of making balls I spread out the caramel popcorn on sheet pans so they made little clusters instead. Sorry grandma!
A chocolaty treat for Halloween is my Triple Chocolate Cupcakes with Spiderwebs. It is a super-chocolaty cupcake made with chocolate chips, chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding. Can’t go wrong there! Then we make a fun design on top of spiderwebs and spiders. What kid (or adult) wouldn’t like that?
And lastly, on a slightly healthier note is my Caramel Apple Dip. Again, I like the idea of eating just a few bites of apple rather than an entire caramel apple. So I make a Buttermilk Caramel Sauce and I serve it with fresh, sliced apples. My favorite apple is the HoneyCrisp, it pairs perfectly with the caramel sauce.
