Samhain Party Recipes

Monday, October 24, 2011
Yesterday I talked about games that you could have at a Samhain party. Today I wanted to share some recipes.


Ingredients:
  • 8 cups popcorn
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 bag of marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter - plus extra to grease hands
Preparation:
In a large mixing bowl pour in candy corn and popcorn. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Then melt marshmallows, stirring consistantly. When the marshmallows are melted, pour over the popcorn and candy corn. Mix together with a large spoon. Be sure candy corn gets mixed in as it weights more than the popcorn and tends to go to the bottom of the bowl. When cool enough to handle, grease hands with butter and begin forming 2-inch balls. Makes 15 - 20 balls.

Witch Cupcakes

Ingredients
  • 1-1/2  cups chocolate frosting
  • 1  package (4-3/4 ounces chocolate cones (Nabisco Oreo Cones)
  • Orange nonpareils

  • Neon-green food coloring
  • 12  cupcakes, removed from paper liners
  • Chocolate chips
  • Green and red tube icing
  • Mike and Ike Tangy Twister candies
  • Chocolate Jimmies
Directions
1. Place chocolate frosting in a freezer-weight zip-top bag and snip off a small corner. Pipe base of cones, dip in orange nonpareils, and set aside.
2. Place 1/2 cup vanilla frosting in a another zip-top bag and snip off a small corner. Tint remaining frosting green and frost cupcakes.
3. Turn cupcakes on sides, then place decorated cones on top. Using vanilla frosting, pipe eyes on cupcakes. Attach chocolate chips for pupils and pipe a dot onto chips. Use red icing for mouths, green icing for warts; shape candies into noses. Pipe chocolate icing onto cupcakes for hair and sprinkle with chocolate jimmies.
