Easy Halloween Treats Frankenstein Cakes

Halloween is so fun for both kids and adults,  I love to make fun treats for Halloween parties. But I prefer to make fast and easy treats that will bring a smile to their face but won’t take all day.  These Frankenstein Cakes are so simple because you are not cooking anything, instead just decorating. So essentially they are a “craft/treat” my older girls love making them, fun project for tweens/ teens.

Ingredients:

Halloween food easy ideas for kids treats, Frankenstein Cakes Fast and Easy Halloween treats for kids, Halloween party food and easy recipesInstructions:

  1. Set wax paper on counter or work surface, open other items and set on cookie sheet or in bowls. Unwrap snack cakes.
  2. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a bowl according to the package’s instructions.
  3. Start with the hair or brown chocolate.  Dip one end of the snack cakes into the semi-sweet chocolates.  For Frankenstein, we just dipped the ends.  For the Brides of Frankenstein, we dipped about half of the snack cake in the semi-sweet chocolate.  You may need a knife to help spread the chocolate.
  4. Set out on wax paper and allow to air dry.  The melting wafers harden much faster and are so easy to work with!  But if you love the idea of an extra layer of chocolate, the chocolates work just fine too!
  5. Melt the green candy wafers according to package instructions into a bowl.
  6. Once the hair has hardened, you will dip the opposite corner in the green mix.
  7. Using the decorating gel, attach two eyes on each snack.
  8. Dip a Sixlet in the green candy melts and attach the nose on each snack.
  9. Use the decorating gel to create a smile, eye lashes or scar marks on your Frankensteins.
  10. For the Bride of Frankenstein, use a drawing tip or a ribbon tip and make some waves with white frosting on her hair.

Mummy in a can Gift & Caramel Popcorn Recipe ~ Quick and easy Halloween treat idea

A Boo – Lishes Carmel Corn

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea

Thanks to Marcee for passing along this Super Thrifty gift Idea.

Supplies:

*Metal Cans
*Pliers
*Glue gun
*Toilet Paper
*White Paper
*Black Marker
*Plastic Bread bags
*Carmel Popcorn (Recipe below)
Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 1

Caramel Popcorn Recipe

5 quarts (or 3 times with the air popper)
1 cup of butter
2 cups of brown sugar
½ cup of Karo Syrup
½ tsp. of Salt
1 tsp. of vanilla
½ tsp. of baking soda

Directions

I make the popcorn in an air popper. I use two bowls. The first bowl is used for catching the popcorn; once the popcorn is finished popping the first time. I stop the machine. I shake the bowl so all the unpopped seeds fall to the bottom. I than scope up the popcorn from the 1st smaller bowl in to the 2nd larger bowl. I do this 2 more times with the air popper.

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 2

I than melt the butter in a large pan on the stove top; once butter is almost melted; I add the brown sugar, karo syrup, and the salt; stir and turn the heat up so that the mixture boils. Once the mixture begins to boil, do not stir for 4 minutes. Once the mixture has boiled for 4 minutes remove from heat and add the soda and vanilla. Stir again. The soda will make the mixture bubble and turn a yummy golden color. Pour the mixture over the bowl of popcorn. Stir the mixture and the popcorn together. A REALLY large bowl helps. Stir until the mixture is attached to the popcorn. My kids like to eat it now, yet it will not stay for a long time unless the popcorn is baked. If you plan to store the popcorn, than you need to bake the popcorn.

 

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 3

You will need two large cookie sheets with sides on them. Put ½ of the mixture on each pan. Bake for an hour on 400 degrees. Stirring every 15 minutes, take out of the oven and let the popcorn cool.

How to make the can mummies

Start with a used metal can from soup, beans, or anything. Make sure the inside of the can is not sharp. (If it is, please smooth it out with a pair of pliers.)

Warm up the glue gun. Next tear off an arm’s length of toilet paper. When the glue is ready, apply a nickel size amount of glue to the back side of the can. (The back is the side where the manufacturers attached their labels) Carefully attach the beginning of the toilet paper to the top of the can. Then wrap the toilet paper around the can until it is at the end. Glue the end of the toilet paper to the can. Spread the toilet paper out so the metal is showing. On some cans I added more glue to keep the toilet paper from slipping.

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 4

I than drew two eyes and colored the iris in with black. I drew the eyes looking in different directions for fun. I cut the eyes out and attached them to the can with the hot glue.

 Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 5

Decorate them

I insert a bread bag (found at Wal-Mart) in the can. I than put the popcorn in the bag while the bag is in the can, I fill until the popcorn is over flowing and I tie the bag shut with a knot. It makes the mummies look at if they have a hat on.

My family selects another family to drop these gifts off too. I park the car down the block; one child rings the doorbell and runs. The kids like to hide outside the house to see the reaction to the recipients faces. We then run back to our car and laugh at how much fun it was. We always leave a note, so they know it is from someone they know.

My daughter wrote the note this year: “You’ve Been Boo’ed”

Quick and easy Halloween treat idea 6

It is a fun family tradition!

DIY Hootie Owl Cupcakes

Hootie Owl Cupcakes  by Tiffany

I saw these Owl Cupcakes on an advertisement pamphlet on one of the paper baking cup displays in the store the other day. I just knew I had to come home, replicate to some degree and change them up a bit. If you look at each one long enough, they kinda take on their own little personalities. I thought these would be cute for Halloween or an upcoming harvest party. These are super easy to make, I promise! Let me tell you, I’ve had my share of cutesie cupcakes that took on an epic fail. They looked easy enough on the cover/directions, but when I got down with um’, I found myself not a happy little Susie homemaker if you catch my drift. 😉 Hope you & your kiddos have a good time making these cute little Owl Cupcakes.

*SEE NOTES*

Supplies Needed

  • 1 box 15.5 oz chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 24 foil or paper baking cups
  • chocolate frosting, homemade or store bought
  • 1 package 12 oz caramel creams, for eyes or 1 package 15.5 oz. Oreo cookies
  • 1 package 12 oz white round candy melts, Wilton Brand, for eyes
  • M & M’s or any small round candy for eyes
  • black licorice, for facial feathers
  • sprinkles, different varieties/colors
  • whole cashews, for beaks

Directions

  1. Bake cupcakes per packaged directions, let cool.
  2. Frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting.
  3. Sprinkle cupcakes with desired sprinkles.
  4. Let’s make the owl eyes for these cuties by pressing down with both your thumbs in the center of  the caramel creams to make a round disk. (If using Oreo cookies, twist apart and use the cream filled side.) Spread frosting on the back side of each caramel disk or Oreo cookie and place onto cupcake. Now take two white candy melts and spread frosting on the back side of each one, place on top of caramel disk. Choose desired color M & M’s for eye color and spread a tiny amount onto the “M” side of the candy, place on top of white candy melt.
  5. For the nose place and push down a whole cashew for the nose right under the eyes.
  6. For the facial feathers cut licorice into approx. 1 inch pieces. Cut fringe with a pair of scissors or knife on each end. Stick frindge pieces into place right above the eyes.

 

NOTES

Under supplies needed, I added both the caramel creams and the Oreo cookies to make the eyes. I decided to use two different choices by using the caramel disks and the Oreo cookies. You can use one or the other or both if you choose. I just wanted to give different looks to my little birdies by using both. I liked using the Oreo cookies better. They were less fuss to deal with.
