Halloween is here, and we could not be any more excited!
We enjoy seeing the festive front porches with glowing jack-o’-lanterns. Photos of creative costumes inspire us to step it up a notch year after year. Most importantly, we love all the treats that people are serving up.
Regular candy is always a great option for an office party or a scary movie viewing, but we want to show you a way to make something special, something spooky and delicious. These DIY treats are tasty, easy to assemble and perfectly match the mood of the holiday.
Reese’s Oreo Bats
Mini Reese's Cups
Cut Oreos in half and remove the cream. Cut each half in half to create the wings.
Using a toothpick, apply a small drop of peanut butter to one end of each Oreo. Press onto the Reese's cup to make wings.
Next, place a small drop of peanut butter onto the back of each candy eyeball and place on top of the edge of the wings.
Marshmallow Monster Teeth
Spread peanut butter onto both sides of the apple.
Place mini marshmallows between two slices and sandwich together.
Hold together with a toothpick if needed.
Mini Spider Donuts
Large Pretzel Twists
M&Ms or Candy Eyeballs
Frosting or Melted Chocolate
Use a knife to cut the two curved sides off a pretzel.
Carefully push 8 pretzels curves into the top of a mini donut to form legs. Slowly press pretzel curves so they don’t snap.
Using a toothpick or small spoon, place a bit of frosting or melted chocolate onto the mini donut. Stick two M&Ms on for eyes, or use candy eyeballs.
We’re sure we’ve missed out on some other great treat ideas. Have something clever you’ve come up with? Be sure to tag us @kirklands. Happy Halloween!
