The easiest Halloween treat you might ever make. I was tapped to bring treats to MiniMac's class party yesterday. I made cinnamon nutmeg brownies. YUM. AND thought I would make something simple especially for the kids. It takes less than ten minutes, and apparently trumped my brownies in terms of popularity, with both the little and the big kids. Pardon the pic, Blackberry is not Nikon.
You will need:
1 bag of large marshmallows
Food safe ink pens (I bought mine at Michael's)
Chocolate genache (bring 1/2 c cream to medium high temp and pour over 1.5 c. chocolate chips. Stir until smooth.)
Caramel (I make my own which is very simple OR you can use caramel topping.)
Directions: Warm the caramel or if you are making it from scratch, allow to cool and thicken. Warm the chocolate or if you are making it, same thing as the caramel, allow to cool.
Using your pens, decorate the marshmallows with ghost faces, pumpkins, or bats. I also wrote BOO on several. You can certainly go to town here with other accoutrements to make faces, hair, etc. Dip each one in either chocolate ganache or caramel. I dipped some almost halfway. Place on waxed paper and allow to set.
Store in airtight container until you are ready to serve. They are sticky but oh, they are good. And yes, you will need to explain to at least one person that no, you did NOT use magic marker on the marshmallows. Yes, someone did ask.
He doesn't eat candy but he loves trick or treating. Let's see how long that lasts. Personally, I hope he never likes candy. haha.
Have a great weekend.
