Nutter Nutter Ghost ~ Quick and Easy Halloween Treats

Nutter Butter cookies are one of my personal favorites, so these little ghosts make me smile.  Quick and easy… and you can make them days before the party. That is a winner in my book.

To make your own Nutter Butter Ghost You Need

  • 1 package of Nutter Butter Cookies
  • 1 1/2 cup of melting white chocolate
  • Black Circle Sprinkles
  • Black writing icing

Start by melting your white chocolate in the microwave according to the chocolate directions. Usually microwave for 15 seconds and mix in between until it’s smooth. Then you want to get a fork and dunk the cookie in the chocolate and coat it fully. Then place the cookie onto Wax paper and repeat for all your cookies. Then let the chocolate set and harden. once that is set you can decorate. place a small dab of black icing for the eyes and a big circle for the mouth. Put a small round black sprinkle where the eyes should go. Let sit for a moment and they are ready to be eatten. ENJOY!Nutty Ghost for Halloween

How to make Homemade Apple Chips, Apple Chips Recipe #Fall, #Apples, #Recipes, #AppleChipsIf you are looking for a crunchy sweet treat that is healthy for you, then you have got to try making your own apple chips.This is also a perfect treat or lunchbox idea for the kiddos. They are yummy, easy to make and so much cheaper than buying them at the store.

Homemade Apple Chips ­

  • 8­10 apples, washed
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • Food dehydrator (I have a basic Ronco dehydrator)
  • Mandolin slicer (optional but this is how I get my perfect slices and I use it for everything!)

5 easy steps

1. Thinly slice your apples. I leave the skin on mine for a bit of extra crunch but you could also peel them if you wish.
2. Lay the apple slices evenly on the dehydrator trays and sprinkle with cinnamon.
3. Stack the trays and turn the dehydrator on. Allot the chips to sit for 6­8 hours and then rotate the trays from top to bottom.
4. Let sit another 6­8 overs (even overnight works) until they get crisp.
5. Store in an airtight gallon ziploc type bag or airtight mason jar.How to make Homemade Apple Chips, Apple Chips Recipe #Fall, #Apples, #Recipes, #AppleChips

Halloween Food Ideas, Spooky Grape Eyeballs,Easy Halloween recipes, #grapeEyes, #Halloween, #HacksThis year I have been trying to find more “healthy” options for the kids to eat on Halloween or at a party.  Sure a little sugar is fine, but my kids seem to eat nothing BUT sugar on Halloween.  These grape eyes are a fun healthier  option.  You do not even have to do every grape… you could just make 10 eyes, and set them in a large tray of grapes.  Makes them a little more spooky since you don’t know which ones are eyes for sure.

To make these you will need  
 

Halloween Food Ideas, Spooky Grape Eyeballs,Easy Halloween recipes, #grapeEyes, #Halloween, #HacksThis is super easy and fun for the kids to eat. All you have to do is grab a grape. You now want to put a small dot of red icing onto the grape. then push your eye ball right onto and set aside for a few moments. Repeat with however many grapes you have left. Then place in fridge and the icing will harden and eye will stay in tact. Set them out in a bowl at your ext party and let the kids eat some eyes! Halloween Food Ideas, Spooky Grape Eyeballs,Easy Halloween recipes, #grapeEyes, #Halloween, #Hacks

Apple Pie Filling Recipe, can be used fresh, frozen or canned #Apples, #ApplePie, #CanningRecipe, #ApplePieRecipe, #FrozenApplePie

Apple pie filling is rather easy to make, and the aroma will make your house smell like Autumn.  Best time to make it is in the fall when apples are in season and tend to be at their lowest price point.  Check your local orchards or fruit stands you can often get them for a fraction of the retail store price.   This recipe is great you can use it fresh right away, freeze it or can in for later use.

What you need (this is for one large deep dish pie)

  • 5-6 Medium Apples, peeled and chopped
  • 2 Ttbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • Salt
  • 2 cups Water

Instructions:
Toss the apples in a large bowl with lemon juice to keep them from browning and set aside.
Pour cornstarch into a large saucepan and slowly whisk in water to prevent the cornstarch from getting lumpy.
Mix in the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Allow to come to a hard boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Add the apples and bring back to a boil then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes or until apples soften to the desired texture.
Cool completely before storing in the freezer or using.

* If you plan to can this pie filling clean and sanitize your canning jars and lids.   Fill jars with hot apple pie filling, stick a knife blade down the side of the jar to remove air bubbles. Put lids on and process in a water bath canner for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and seal on the counter.Apple Pie Filling Recipe, can be used fresh, frozen or canned #Apples, #ApplePie, #CanningRecipe, #ApplePieRecipe, #FrozenApplePie
