Tricks For Your Treats!
Whether you’re making your own goodies or dressing up something delicious, trick out your treats this year with these next-level Halloween hacks!
Nothing can take a halloween treat from fun to spooktacular like edible candy eyes! Make your own by putting dots of melted white chocolate down on wax or parchment paper, followed by smaller milk/dark chocolate spots inside. Let your eyes cool in the refrigerator then pop them off the wax paper to give any treat holiday flair!
Make It Pop!
One of our favorite things about Halloween is all that bold color! When working with chocolate, icing or even batter, separating to plastic bowls/baggies and adding food coloring is a simple way to add custom color to almost any homemade treat! Work with the classic McCormick water based food coloring you can find in our baking aisle or use candy melts/food coloring gel for more precise and intense colors.
Simple But Spooky Spider Web
Step 1.) Draw some circles
Step 2.) Use a toothpick to pull color from the inside out
Step 3.) Enjoy!
Similar to the method we talked about to make your own edible eyes, you can print any simple black linework design, place it under the translucent wax/parchment paper then use melted chocolate in a fine-tip squeeze bottle or piping bag to trace over the design. Let harden/freeze then pop off the sheet to apply to cookies, cakes, cupcakes, you name it! Use this method to trace spiders, spider webs, pumpkins, black cats, skulls, bones, bats & more!
Mix & Layer
Add a surprise to the inside of your cakes this year by layering different colored cakes together! Layers need to be cooked in separate pans if you want the frosting in between the layers, but feel free to layer or even mix around different colored batter together for cool effects as well!
Anyone can open a candy bag and put it in a bowl for Halloween. Be the best house on the block for your trick or treaters this year by dressing up those candies with some of these easy & awesome methods!
