What's your favorite Halloween candy

Halloween sweets to give away or to snack on yourself

No Halloween without sweets. Distributing candies and sweets to children is a tradition on Halloween. And of course, the sweet treats should not be missing at a proper Halloween party. But of course we're not talking about classic sweets such as fruit gums, lollipops or chocolate. Really creepy sweets are needed for the Festival of Terror!

For Halloween this year there is something really scary on our party plates, to the great joy of the children - but also the adults! Ghosts, spiders, monsters and vampires, nasty fangs and bloody cookies ... pretty scary! Fortunately, the candy on Halloween is irresistibly delicious. Here are our favorite recipes:

1. Halloween sweetie: brownie ghosts

Ingredients (for 12 pieces):

  • 1 brownie mix
  • 12 marshmallows
  • brown sugar font color

For the frosting:

  • 240 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g soft butter
  • 15 ml of water or cream
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar

Preparation:
Bake brownies according to the instructions on the packet, allow to cool and cut into 12 pieces. In the meantime you make the frosting. To do this, put all the frosting ingredients in a bowl and mix them together until a cream is formed. If it is not liquid enough, just add some cream or water.

Then put a marshmallow on top of each brownie piece and carefully pour the frosting over it. As soon as the frosting is completely dry you can paint the mouth and the eyes of the ghosts with the brown sugar font. Buuuuh!

2. Halloween Sweetie: Spider Cookies

Ingredients (for 12 pieces):

  • 12 biscuits of your choice
  • 12 chocolate balls (e.g. halved Rochers or Lindor)
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • Sugar eyes
  • 5 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp water

Preparation:
Mix the powdered sugar with a little water to form a viscous glaze. So that the sugar eyes stick to the chocolate balls and let dry. In the meantime, melt the dark chocolate and put a dollop on each biscuit. Carefully place a chocolate ball on top and press down lightly.

Now put the remaining liquid chocolate in a freezer bag, in the corner of which you cut a small hole - this is how you can easily make your own piping bag with a very fine nozzle. Now use it to paint the spider legs on the biscuits and then let everything dry well. Creepy good!

3. Halloween sweetie: Dracula's teeth

Ingredients (for 12 pieces):

  • 12 large biscuits of your choice
  • 72 mini marshmallows
  • 24 almond sticks

For the frosting:

  • 240 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g soft butter
  • 15 ml of water or cream
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 tube of red food coloring

Preparation:
Cut the biscuits in half with a large sharp knife. Now you make the frosting by putting all the frosting ingredients, except for the color, in a bowl and mixing them to a cream. Remove a teaspoon from the white frosting and set it aside.

Gradually add some of the color to the rest of the frosting until the frosting has the desired shade. Now apply the finished frosting thickly to the biscuit halves and carefully press 6 marshmallows onto the lower half as teeth. Then put the other half of the biscuit on top and press it down lightly.

Finally, attach the creepy fangs: Put some of the leftover white frosting on the back of the almond sticks and stick them between the marshmallow teeth, as shown in the picture. Very tasty!

4. Halloween sweetie: splatter cookies

Ingredients:

  • 24 biscuits of your choice
  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 1 tube of red food coloring

Preparation:
Melt the white chocolate over a hot water bath and coat the biscuits with it. Let it dry completely. Dribble enough of the food coloring into the rest of the melted chocolate until the desired blood red color is achieved. The chocolate should be very runny; if it isn't, just add a little cream or milk.

You can now decorate the biscuits in two ways: Either, you pick up some of the red color with a toothbrush and splash the biscuits. Or you dip a fork and sprinkle it that way. Terribly beautiful!
