Halloween is heavily anticipated by many people. Friends and family alike gather every year in order to celebrate this occasion. They even have fun dressing up using colorful costumes. What’s really great about Halloween, however, is that it is both for children and adults, which means that you can have parties for all ages!
Are you getting excited? Good, because Halloween is just around the corner!
If you’re planning to host a dynamic party, but can’t decide where to hold it or where to get so much food in so little time, don’t worry! In Manila, catering services are abundant, and plenty of them offer excellent services for an affordable price. Even if you really want to prepare something for your guests, you should consider hiring a caterer. This will help make the planning process easier, since it allows you to focus your attention on other essentials like decorations, invitations, and of course, preparing for that costume that will blow everyone’s mind off. On the other hand, if you prefer to do everything on your own, then you are free to do so. You can even add a personal touch to the food you will be serving to your guests.
If you need help getting some ideas, here is a list of easy-to-make Halloween-themed sweets that you can distribute during your get-together:
To do this, you’ll need plenty of Oreos, white chocolates, lollipop sticks, and some ribbon. In a bowl, put some of the white chocolates and microwave them for about a minute. This may or may not totally melt the chocolate, so what you need to do is grab a spoon, and mix it until the texture is smooth and creamy. Afterwards, let the bowl’s warmth melt it. Once you’re done with the previous process, pour the melted chocolate into a glass and set it aside for a little while. Then, go ahead and take some lollipop sticks, dab some of your white chocolate on the tip, and stick it into the cream filling of the Oreo. Pop them in the freezer for a minute to help keep the cookies on the stick.
After the cookies have been secured on the stick, dip the Oreos into your white chocolate mixture and set them on a tray that is lined with non-stick baking paper or any alternative. Do this with the rest of the cookies, and then put them back in the freezer for about five minutes to let the chocolate harden. With a black edible marker, draw the face of Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare before Christmas,” or – if you’re an experienced baker – melt some more of that white chocolate, color it with black food coloring and use it to create something more creative. If you decide to stick to decorating Jack’s face, you may also tie a black ribbon on the stick to make it seem like it is wearing a bow tie.
Overall, this is a fun activity that is not only for adults. You can also ask the kids to participate in decorating the Oreo pops. For sure, they would love every bit of it. It might even excite them to go Trick or Treating!
This dessert is a little healthier than your usual dose of dessert; a lot simpler too! All you will need are apple slices, some peanut butter (you may choose your preferred brand), and a package of small marshmallows.
To start the healthy goodie preparation, carefully slice your apples into a quarter of an inch-thick wedge. Afterwards, group the apple wedges into two. Put some creamy peanut butter on one of the apples, then place some marshmallows on top of the fruits. Next, put the other apple slice on top of the first slice you prepared to make it look like a mouth with the marshmallows as teeth. If you want, you can also use colorful marshmallows to make them freakier, or cuter, depends on how you look at it, actually. Now, if only you could get these teeth to chatter. Or maybe not, but your guests probably will! Perfect for the season’s event.
Okay, so the first thing you’ll need is a cake. You can either bake one, if you’re up for it, or buy some readily available cake/s in your local grocer/bakery. Chocolate would work wonderfully since you want it to look like a graveyard, and chocolate has a color that reminds us all of the soil.
If you plan to take it the long method, be sure to have all your cake’s ingredients at the ready. There are a lot of cake recipes that you can follow online. But if you are a seasoned baker, then, creating this dessert should be no problem at all. Once you have your cake, get some butter cookies next (again, you can either bake them yourself or get them somewhere else).Then, use some chocolate frosting to draw on the butter cookies. It is best to write “RIP” to achieve the whole “graveyard” look.
After you are done with that, crush some Oreos in a food processor; if you want, you can also add some cream on it. However, if you set aside another cake, you can just use that instead. Crumble the other cake into a bowl. Stick the butter cookies into the frosted cake to mark some graves, and then decorate it with the crumbled chocolate cake. If you want more decorations or you are feeling a bit more creative and artsy, you can also place chocolate covered cookie sticks on the side of the cake to create a scary fence or gate.
Halloween-themed treats don’t have to be too difficult or expensive. You only need to have a bit of an imagination, an ounce of effort, and some tasty ingredients in your cupboards. For sure, with a bit of practice and a lot of patience (creating these treats could take a lot of time), you will end up making the most delicious and scariest desserts this Halloween – impressing both your friends and family!
