Halloween Candy Corn Marshmallow
Make a typical sugar cookie icing recipe as follows:
Mix: (add additional corn syrup to make sure it is runny)
1 cup powdered sugar – 2 teaspoons milk – 2 teaspoons light corn syrup – 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract – food coloring (black, yellow and orange)
Dip marshmallow into orange about one third the way up from the bottom. Dry.
Dip marshmallow into yellow about one half the way up the orange. Dry
Mix the rest of your icing to make black and dot the top part of marshmallow to make eyes. This step is not necessary as they are a unique little treat or party favor either way.
Nutter Butter Halloween Bats
Dip Nutter Butters into melted chocolate or chill Nutter Butters and dip into candy shell (the stuff you buy for ice cream that goes on as a liquid but hardens as a candy shell. Drag with a toothpick little ridges at the base of the wings. Place a dot of melted chocolate at the top and stick a brown M&M onto it. Place two dots of melted chocolate at the top of the M&M and drag (with a toothpick) up to create two ears. Pipe two dots of colored icing (powdered sugar with a few drops of food coloring just to make it almost runny). Put two drops of melted chocolate for the center of eyes.
Delicious treat for a Halloween party or for an added bonus to a treat bag. If you love Nutter Butters like i do this will surely be a scary little treat you will want to make.
Fudge Made From Cake Batter
1 cup yellow cake mix
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter or margarine, cut into small squares
1/4 cup milk or 1/8 cup soy milk
Mix cake mix and icing sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not overmix as sprinkle colour may bleed.
Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
* Makes one 6 x 6” container, or double for an 8 x 8” pan.
** Notes: If the batter comes out too runny, stir in about 1 tsp or sugar or cake mix at a time until stiff. If too thick to stir in all components, slowly add 1/2 tsp of milk at a time, but batter should be thick!
Angel Food Cake Lemon Bars SIMPLE
1 box Angel Food Cake mix
1 can of Lemon Pie filling
Mix them together by hand until moist. Be sure not to over stir. Bake in a 9×13 cake pan at 350 degrees until golden brown on the top (about 20 minutes). Cool completely before eating. As they are cooling, you can sprinkle with powder sugar if you wish .They have more of an angel food cake texture than a traditional lemon bar texture. For extra little kick – add shaved chocolate to the top before serving.
I made these for the family last night —- they were gone with me having 1 piece – and that was a corner. urgh
