Yummy Halloween Recipes To MakeSpray the inside of a large mixing bowl with vegetable cooking spray, and lightly spray a baking sheet. Set aside.

In a 3 quart or larger, heavy-bottomed pan, heat the oil and popcorn over medium-high heat. Cover the pan and shake gently. Cook until all the kernels have popped, about 3 minutes. Place the popcorn in the prepared bowl.

In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over low heat. Add the vanilla extract and marshmallows. Stir constantly until the marshmallows have melted and the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn. Using a spatula, sprayed with cooking spray, stir until the popcorn is coated. Spread the mixture over the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the chocolate bar pieces, cookies, almonds and chocolate candies. Using a spatula, gently press the toppings into the popcorn. Allow the mixture to dry for 1 hour.

Break into 2-inch pieces and store airtight in a plastic container.

Serving Suggestion: Place in small plastic bags and seal with colored ribbon.

“I make dozens of these each Halloween. They are so cute! My kids expect to be able to take them to school even when I am not the Halloween party mom! I also take some to work and the people who dress up in costumes get one as a prize – they come looking for me to show me their costumes!”

DIRECTIONS

Yummy Halloween Recipes To Make

    1. Make cupcakes: Heat oven to 350°. Fill cupcake pan with liners and set aside, then sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
    2. In another large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat until combined, then scrape down bowl and beat in egg white. Add vanilla and beat until combined.
    3. Alternate adding flour and milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
    4. Evenly divide batter into three separate bowls and color two portions, one with yellow food coloring and the other with orange food coloring. Divide batter evenly among liners until each cup is three-quarters full.
    5. Bake until tops are golden and spring back when slightly pressed, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to let cool completely.
    6. Make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, beat butter until slightly whipped. Add 1 cup powdered sugar at a time, beating on low until slightly blended, about 5 seconds. Increase speed to high and beat until fully incorporated, 5 to 7 seconds more, then repeat with remaining powdered sugar. Add 2 tablespoons heavy cream and vanilla and beat to combine (add additional heavy cream as needed to achieve desired consistency), then add salt and beat to combine. Evenly divide frosting into three separate bowls and color two portions, one with yellow and the other with orange. Fill three pastry bags with each color. (Fit yellow and orange pastry bag with a closed star tip; fit white pastry bag with a round tip.) Pipe three layers with each color onto cupcakes, and finish with royal icing eyes.

INGREDIENTS

      • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
      • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting
      • 1 (11.5 ounce) package fudge stripe cookies
      • 1 (6 ounce) bag milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
      • 1 tablespoon red gel icing

DIRECTIONS

    1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool. Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
    2. Break the cookies in half, and press two halves into the top of each cupcake for wings, stripes facing the frosting. Place a chocolate kiss in front of the cookies with the point facing forward for the body. Make two beady little eyes with the red gel icing towards the point of the kiss. Let the fun begin!
