Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 box of chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 2 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 4 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 tube of black cake decorating gel
  • 4 serving cups or one large bowl
  • 4 candy flowers or fun Halloween candy
Instructions
  1. Start by making the pudding; heat the pudding-mix and milk in a pan over medium heat. Keep stirring until the mixture comes to full boil. Follow the instructions given on the box. When done, pour the mixture into 4 serving cups or one large bowl.
  2. Now create the ‘dirt’. Open the chocolate sandwich cookies and remove the filling. Put the cookies in a plastic bag and roll over the bag with a cup or a drinking glass to obtain medium sized crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the pudding before it sets.
  3. Next, you have to create the headstone. Put a vanilla wafer on the table and write “RIP” on it. Make sure the ‘headstone’ is long; so you can see the words when you plant it into the ‘dirt’.
  4. Lastly, put a candy flower or rosette in front of the tombstone. You can find the candy flowers and rosettes at any cake decoration shop or a bakery. Engage the children by letting them decorate; candy worms and pumpkins can be used. Refrigerate the dessert until you are ready to serve it.

Halloween Popcorn Balls
 
The most versatile snack that can easily be dressed up for Halloween or other themed celebrations.
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Roughly 36 balls
Ingredients
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 3 cups corn syrup
  • 1½ cups butter (3 sticks)
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 48 cups popcorn, popped (about 3 cups un-popped kernels)
Instructions
  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add a small amount of oil.
  2. Add 1 cup and about 1 cup un-popped popcorn kernels. As popping begins, listen to the speed of the kernel pops. When the speed slows to about 2-3 seconds between pops, popcorn should be ready… This is ONLY an estimate! Do not allow popcorn to burn. Repeat 2 more times or until you have about 48 cups of popped corn.
  3. Note: Pour popcorn into a large bowl. If you do not have a bowl large enough, you can thoroughly clean & dry your kitchen sink, lay a saucer over the hole and use it. Sift through popcorn to remove any un-popped kernels at the bottom of the bowl.
  4. Using the same pan you popped the corn in, add the brown sugar and corn syrup.
  5. Next add the butter and salt. Bring to a simmer; continue simmering for about 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and slowly pour over popcorn. Using a large spoon, stir until all popcorn is well coated.
  7. Once popcorn has cooled enough to handle, shape into balls with your hands, pressing tight to ensure they stay together. Decorate with candy corn, candy sprinkles, gummy worms, etc.
  8. Note: Adding candies into the mix doesn’t work well as the waxy candy coating tends to make the popcorn balls break apart.

 

Cold Coffee Drink Recipes

Cold Coffee Drink Recipes

Who says you have to drink your coffee hot? Cold coffee drinks have become popular summertime treats for those who want to beat the heat with a little flavor.

It used to be that the best summertime drinks were lemonade and iced tea. For those who want something a bit stronger, coffee is still on the menu.

Making Iced Coffee

Since it has become popular there are different varieties of iced coffee drinks on the market. You can purchase mixes or already chilled coffees in a bottle. For diehard coffee fans, making your own iced coffee can be more economical and also more fitting to your personal coffee tastes.

We’ve included some simple recipes below to help you create your own batch at home. First, choose whether you want to use fresh brewed drip coffee or cold brewed coffee. The first reaction and the easiest may be to use coffee that you freshly brewed that morning. It saves on coffee.

For this method, brew your coffee like normal. With remaining coffee, transfer to a container and allow it to come to room temperature for a few hours. To serve over ice without diluting the final drink, pour some cooled coffee in an ice tray and freeze. Use these ice cubes when drinking your iced coffee.

If you are going to add any sweetness, do it before chilling coffee. Sugar doesn’t dissolve well in cold liquids. Other ways to finish iced coffee include: chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, condensed milk, whipped cream or even ice cream.

Cold brewed coffee takes more effort. Mix one part ground coffee with four parts room temperature water in a container. Cover and allow to steep overnight. The next day, use a strainer or cheesecloth over another container to strain your coffee. Another method would be to use a filter and pour coffee and grounds through your drip maker.

Iced Coffee Recipes

Caramel Coffee

  • Iced coffee

Coffee doesn’t just have to be enjoyed hot. On a warm day, you can still get your caffeine fix from a tall glass of iced coffee.

After seeing my hubby eating sliced peaches last night I started thinking about recipes that I could make with them, and a peach cobbler was one of the first things that came to mind. I’ve made cobbler in the past, but this is the first time that I’ve used peaches.
