A whole host of different ideas for what you can offer Trick or Treaters. These can be used as treats at a party, as treats to give away to Trick of Treaters, or as little suprises in Games.
This recipe makes little cookie treats that are easy enough to use as prizes in games, or as suprises for Trick or Treaters.
You will need:
40 Vanilla Wafer Cookies
1 1/2 Cups of Dark Chocolate Icing
40 Gummy Worms.
1. Mix up the Icing, and spread onto twenty of the cookies.
2. Lay out 2 Gummy Worms on each Cookie
3. Add some more of the icing onto the cookie, before laying the second Cookie on top.
Okay, not too menacing or scary on their own, but let loose whilst decorating them! Use green icing to make them into tombstones, orange to make them into Pumpkins, or black and green for bubbling cauldrons.
To Make 6 cakes:
50g/2oz self raising flour
50g/2oz Caster sugar (superfine)
50g/2oz Butter or margarine (shortening)
1. Add the butter and sugar together, and mix until they stick together on their own. Add the egg, then the flour. Alternatively, place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and use a food processor or blender to mix thouroughly.
2. Spoon into cases, making sure you don’t fill the case more than 2/3rds full.
3. Place in the oven at 190 C/ 375 F or Gas Mark 5, and cook for 15 minutes. To check that they’re cooked through, push a toothpick or knife through it and make sure that it comes out clean. If not, cook for another 5 minutes.
4. Before decorating, allow them to cool completely by placing them on a wire rack.
5. Mix any toppings together, and then let loose!!!
Something different, quite a useful addition to any games which involves lucky dips (or not so lucky dips!)
1 Pack of Jelly Cubes
1. Make the jelly up as per instructions on the packet.
2. Before letting it set, you need to pour into plastic cups or Ice cube trays, with a Gummy sweet in the cup or tray, and leave to set in these.
3. Serve either on a tray, or as suprises in Lucky Dips.
