Halloween Treats

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with the next part in my Halloween series. This time it’s fun and delicious Halloween treats. Whether you’re throwing a party or just want something themed to eat on the night, these are perfect.

The first treat we have is Dark Chocolate Halloween Chip Cookies. Chocolate chip cookies are great for every occasion and these literally scream Halloween when you look at them.

What You Need:

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup of Hershey’s special dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 cup of Nestle Halloween baking chips
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of mini Reese’s Pieces baking candies

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you’ve done that line your baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Then, take a large bowl, and combine the butter and the sugars. Beat that until it’s light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Next add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  • Next add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix that on low and make sure everything is combined.
  • In another bowl add the Halloween chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips and the mini Reese’s Pieces. Stir that gently so everything is evenly distributed. Then take that mixture and fold in about 1 3/4 cups of it into the dough. Set aside the rest of the chips.
  • Refrigerate your dough for about 30 minutes or as long as it takes for it to be set so it doesn’t fall apart when rolling.
  • Once it is set, take 2 tablespoons for each cookie and roll them into balls. Set the cookie balls 2 inches apart on your baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. You’re looking for the cookies to be just set.
  • After the cookies come out of the oven take the chips that you set aside and press into the tops of the cookies.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Next we have Halloween Muddy Buddies. I make muddy buddies for parties all the time and it’s always a crowd pleaser and takes hardly any time at all.

What You Need:

  • 9 cups of Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 boxes of Reese’s Pieces
  • 2 cups of pretzels
  • 2 bags of candy corn

What You Do:

  • The first step is to take a microwave safe bowl and in it add the butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips. Microwave that for 1 minute, stir then microwave again for 30 seconds and stir when it comes out.
  • To that add your vanilla, give a little stir and pour over the Chex. Mix that well and scoop into a Ziploc bag.
  • Add the powdered sugar to the bag and toss around to evenly coat everything.
  • Pour coated cereal into a large bowl and add in the Reese’s Pieces, pretzels and candy corn. Give that all a big stir.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last treat we have is Trick Or Treat Pretzels. I love mixing candy and pretzels, so this is perfect.

What You Need:

  • 10 ounces of small pretzel twists
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • Halloween sprinkles
  • Candy Corn
  • Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Mini Kit Kats
  • Mini M&M’s

What You Do:

  • First, take your baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Once you’ve done that, place the pretzels on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Then, in a medium bowl add the chocolate chips and the oil and microwave for about a minute. When I melt chocolate in the microwave I don’t always stir in increments, but you can if you want. But if you don’t make sure to keep an eye on it.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, drizzle it over the pretzels and top with the candy and sprinkles.
  • Let it set for an hour at room temperature. Then break apart.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last treat we have is Halloween Pumpkin Brownies. Brownies are one of  my favorite desserts and so easy to dress up for any holiday.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 of oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 package of brownie mix (You don’t have to use mix, you can make your own)
  • 1, 10 ounce, package of Halloween chips
  • Halloween sprinkles

What You Do:

  • First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Then line your 9×9 pan with foil or spray with a non stick cooking spray, whichever you prefer.
  • Next, in a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin, water, oil, eggs and pumpkin pie spice until it’s well blended. Add in the brownie mix and stir. Then add in 1/2 of the Halloween chips and stir until well combined. Pour that mixture into your prepared pan.
  • Add the rest of the Halloween chips and the sprinkles to the top of the brownies and put in the oven.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the edges pull away from the pan.
  • Once they’re out of the oven and cooled, cut the brownies into squares.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these treats let me know how they turn out and if you have any Halloween treats that you love I’d love to know what they are.

Until next time, have fun baking and enjoy your treats :).
