Sweet treats for Halloween PDF Print E-mail

Halloween is a time for costumes and candy. Although many people like the convenience of buying bags of pre-made candy, this Halloween, celebrants may want to make their own sweet treats.
• Cake pops: A revolution in dessert, cake pops can be made in two ways. The first method is baking a cake and then crumbling it up into a bowl. Then a container of cake frosting is added, making the mixture moldable. The mixture is then formed into balls, which are put on lollipop sticks and dipped into melted chocolate.
The second cake pop method is to purchase pans or special waffle-iron-type devices that turn batter into balls while cooking. Then the cake balls are put on sticks and covered in frosting or chocolate.
• Chocolate bark: Create a healthy and delicious mixture of ingredients by melting dark chocolate and adding in nuts, dried cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, or anything else you can think off. Pour the mixture on a piece of waxed paper and allow to harden in the refrigerator. Then cut into chunks and enjoy.
