Tips-y Tuesdays: Halloween Treats

I didn’t think I would be creating any Halloween goodies. I’m not normally very creative in the whole decorating/making things look good way. But, we were hosting a party this past weekend and I wanted some themed treats. So, I came up with the Meringue Ghosts you saw yesterday and the Pudding Graveyards you see today. Both have been done before, but I put my own spin on the treats. Do you like to do gross treats for your Halloween parties, or stick to the ideas of Halloween (like ghosts and tombstones)? I couldn’t bring myself to do the gross kind, but I might for a kid party. Are you a party-thrower who does themes? I usually don’t, but again, that goes with my lack of creativity in that department. After visiting my friend Kim and seeing all of her amazing decorations I felt ashamed that I haven’t done more, but I just can’t think of what to do! So, feel free to share your decorating tips here.

I made my ladyfingers again. They turn out every time!

For the Pudding Graveyards today, I kept it simple. I didn’t even make my own pudding because we had some pudding packets that needed to be used. Our other treats were non-chocolate, so I wanted to make this chocolatey. You will need:

  • Pudding (chocolate is best to look like dirt)
  • Cookie crumbs (I used a dark graham cracker cookie pack I had to look more like brown dirt, but you could use Oreos, or a mix of cookies)
  • Ladyfingers, cut in half
  • Melted chocolate
  • Cups (your choice on size/style)
  • Pastry bag or plastic bag

Divide the pudding evenly in your cups for the number of people you wish to serve. Sprinkle cookie crumbs on top.

I added some cocoa powder and powdered sugar to change the flavor a bit.

Cut the ladyfingers in half with a serrated knife:

Using the pastry bag with a small tip or a plastic bag with the corner snipped off, squeeze out the melted chocolate to write “RIP” on the tops of the ladyfingers.

I melted some chocolate and coconut oil, then added some meringue powder and powdered sugar to thicken it.

Place the ladyfingers in the pudding to look like tombstones.

That’s it! Very simple and yummy, plus it’s friendly for kids!
