Halloween is about more than ghosts and goblins. It’s also about delicious treats. You might have aged out of trick-or-treating, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss the treats. Make these deliciously fun Halloween party snacks to get the party going this holiday.
Bugs on a Log
You can give your family quite the scare this Halloween by making Bugs on a Log. Take out some pretzel logs and place them on a plate. Then pipe some peanut butter on top of chocolate-covered raisins that you’ll use for bugs. Press the raisins onto the pretzels, and then use chocolate sprinkles to add legs. Finally, pipe peanut butter onto each raisin and add mini sugar pearls to function as the bugs’ eyes.
Cupcakes are always a top choice, regardless of the celebration. When it comes to Halloween, you can’t beat Bat Cupcakes. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then grab:
- 1 cup of light brown sugar
- One stick of melted butter
- A half-cup of sour cream
- Two eggs
- 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice
Mix all of the ingredients. Then add in 1 1/4 cups of flour. You’ll also need to add a half teaspoon of:
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
Once everything is mixed, divide the batter into 12 lined muffin cups. Then pop the cupcakes in the oven and bake them until they pass the toothpick test. Insert the toothpick, take it out, and examine it. If it’s clean, the cupcakes are ready. Remove the cupcakes but keep the oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next, you need to make the bat cookies for the cupcakes. You can grab sugar cookie dough at the grocery store. Roll it out and use a small bat cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. Put the cookies in the oven and bake them until they’re golden.
Let the cookies cool, and then add chocolate frosting. Then press black sanding decorating sugar to the cookies to add a little glimmer. Finish it up by adding some sweetened whipped cream and a bat cookie to the top of each cupcake.
