Eek, Shriek and be Scary Halloween Collection

Friday, October 21, 2011


Eek, Shriek and be Scary this Halloween! I'm so excited to share my Halloween Collection with you, as it is filled with fun, easy and creative DIY creations.

We had triple dipped candycorn carmel apples (that brightened up the table). These were a huge success and turned out fabulous!



 Our Brownie and pretzel skeletons were a spooktacular edition. We made a pan of brownies in a square pan because we wanted them thick, cutting them into squares (don't forget to cut the edges off). Then covered them in ganache. Place a short bamboo skewer or sucker stick close to the back and pile white chocolate pretzels. Top with a marshmallow with a cute skeleton face (drawn on by editable markers) and package with our fun skeleton tag.





As we all know there are more then plenty of treats at Halloween, so we added a little no sweet treat for the kids.... Cheese balls... fun, festive and something children and adults love.



Bedazzle your snickerdoodle cookies with sprinkles! We mixed black, yellow and orange to make a custom Halloween mix and rolled it in the sprinkles instead of cinnamon and sugar before baking. Attach our tag from our Eek, Shriek and be Scary Halloween Collection. Place a stack of cookies in a cupcake liner and tie with decorative twine. 



My favorite dessert piece/ game we had though was our Trick or Treat TIC TAC TOE. In our Printable collection we have 4 TIC TAC TOE card designs. We made mini apothecary jars filled with candycorns on one side and candy pumpkins on the for a complete TIC TAC TOE game. We made mini broomsticks to swipe the game after it's completed.





We created our own large patterned paper pinwheels that we hung from the ceiling with 8" centerpiece design emblems in the center.





For an easy centerpiece gather some sticks from the yard and made fun sparkling branches. We first spray painted them black. After they were dry we sprayed them again with glitter glue. Then covered them in glitter (we even made up our own concoction since we could find that perfect blend of black and purple. The finishing touch was the candycorn garlands that we glittered as well.

Pin It!

  16. What were the 3 layers that you dipped the candy corn apples in?

    ReplyDelete
  17. For the candy apples I dipped the apples in carmel first. I let this sit a little bit so it was set up a bit (probably only 30 minutes or so) Then dip the apple in white chocolate, I left a little at the top so you could see the carmel. Let this step dry then repeat and dip only half way up the apple with orange chocolate. Right after you dip the apple in the orange chocolate sprinkles yellow sprinkles on or you can "dip" it in a bowl of sprinkles. (tip: before the orange chocolate make sure you have let the excess dip off os it doesn't jut puddle and ooze out. You can lightly scape the bottom if there is too much chocolate.

    Let me know if you have any other questions:)

  19. what did you use to decorate the marshmallows on the skeleton brownies?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I used food safe black marker. You could also use melted chocolates. I just discovered they have little colored chocolate in tubes that allows very easily decorating! It is one of my favorite new products!

    ReplyDelete

  25. How did you do the candycorn apples? I am guessing carmel dipped, than some vanilla almond bark, then tinted colored vanilla almond bark?

    I love the set up... I wish I was having a Halloween party this year!

    1. Exactly! It is really easy. Here are the instructions again.

      For the candy apples I dipped the apples in carmel first.
