Halloween is right around the corner and though I don’t celebrate, you can catch me eating all the candy my heart desires around this time. This year, instead of just consuming, I decided to try my hand at making two EASY Halloween treats. These yummy bites both take under 30 minutes to make and are perfect for any spooky festivities you have coming up.

Disclaimer: my treats came out scary (think between a Pinterest fail and perfection) but they tasted so good.

Strawberry Ghosts

I never thought putting little faces on strawberries could be so fun. Making these chocolate covered strawberries felt completely painless and strangely soothing.

Ingredients

2 cups of strawberries

1 1/2 cups of white chocolate

1 tsp. of coconut oil

mini chocolate chips (amount depends on how many ghosts are made)

1/2 cup of chocolate chips, melted


Recipe

  1. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, place white chocolate and coconut oil in microwave to melt. Melt chocolate by warming up for 1 minute and then in 15 second intervals until fully melted.

  3. Dip strawberries into white chocolate and place two mini chocolate chips on the top half of the strawberries for eyes. Place strawberries on prepared baking sheet and place in the refrigerator to harden, about 10 minutes.

  4. Place melted chocolate chips in a ziploc bag, snip a small corner off the bottom of the bag and draw mouths on the strawberries.

  5. Let cool again in the refrigerator, 5 minutes. Serve.

Rice Krispies Mummies

This recipe had to be the easiest one to make. You only need three ingredients to get the job done!  Once you have those, you just dip your rice krispie treat in chocolate and decorate accordingly.

Ingredients

6 snack-size rice krispie treats

2 cups of white chocolate chips

1 tsp. coconut oil

black edible piping gel or icing

Recipe

Prep: Unwrap rice krispie treats and set aside on a baking sheet

  1. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on half power for 1 minute. Stir and return to microwave for 15 seconds at a time stirring after each until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

  1. Dip rice krispie treats in the chocolate being sure to coat the front and sides (the back side can remain uncovered). Place uncovered-side-down on baking sheet.

  2. Repeat process with remaining rice krispie treats. Transfer plate/baking sheet to freezer to cool for 2-3 minutes.

  3. While treats are cooling, spoon melted white chocolate into a small zip lock bag. Remove treats from freezer. Use scissors to snip off a tiny bit of one bottom corner of the chocolate-filled bag, then drizzle chocolate in a random pattern over the treats to create the look of mummy wrapping. Return treats to freezer for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Pipe two dots onto each rice krispie treat to create mummy eyes. Serve or store in airtight container up to 1 week.
