- 1 Package (7.5 Ounces) Double Chocolate Milano Cookies
- 1 Cup White Chocolate Chips
- 32 Black Pearl Sprinkles
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Open the package of cookies and pull them all out.
Since white chocolate hardens so quickly, I like to work in several batches.
In a microwave safe bowl place 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips with 1/4 tablespoon vegetable oil in the microwave.
Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave for another 25 seconds. Stir until melted or return to the microwave for a little longer. Add more vegetable oil if needed.
Holding the cookie in one hand and holding a spoon in the other hand, spoon the melted chocolate over the top 2/3rds of the cookies.
Lightly tap the cookies on the edge of the bowl to get a nice even coating of chocolate.
Place the dipped cookies on prepared baking sheet and allow to completely dry.
Repeat in another batch with remaining cookies.
Place all the leftover white chocolate (make sure it is still very melted — place in microwave for another 15 seconds if needed) into a small plastic bag (or a frosting bag fitted with a #2 tip)
Cut the very edge corner off of the bag and then pipe the melted white chocolate over the cookies to form the “bandages” of the mummy.
Secure 2 sprinkle eyes on the wet chocolate.
- 1 ( 16 oz) Package Vanilla Candiquik Coating
- 24 Fresh Strawberries
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Melt Candiquik in tray according to directions on package.
- Place a large piece of wax or parchment paper on a flat surface.
- Dip the strawberries in melted Candiquik Coating, remove and allow the excess coating to pour off onto the wax paper to form the “tail” of the ghost; slide the strawberry back and set on wax paper to dry.
- Before coating has set, place two mini chocolate chips on as the eyes. For the mouth, cut off the tip of a mini chocolate chip and place on the strawberry with the bottom side facing up.
Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops
- Green candy melts (See Kelly’s Notes)
- Small pretzel rods
- Semisweet chocolate chips
- Candy eyeballs
- Edible red and black markers
- Melt the green candy melts in a microwave or double boiler according to package directions until they are fully melted.
- Push the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows then dip the marshmallows into the melted candy, turning to cover them completely. Stand the marshmallows upright in a glass filled with uncooked rice or oatmeal and place the glass in the fridge until the chocolate has cooled and hardened slightly, about 5 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler until smooth. Dip the tops of each of the coated marshmallows in the chocolate to form the hair, and using a toothpick, drag the chocolate down toward the base of the marshmallow to form spikes of hair. Return the marshmallows to the fridge until the chocolate has hardened, about 5 minutes.
Break the ends off of the pretzel rods to form the small (about 1/8-inch) “bolts” for Frankenstein’s neck. Carefully push one piece of pretzel into each side of the marshmallow about 1/3 of the way from the bottom.
Using a toothpick and the remaining melted chocolate, dab two small dots of chocolate onto each marshmallow and press on the candy eyeballs.
Using the black edible marker, draw on a mouth, and then using the red edible marker, draw on a laceration on Frankenstein’s forehead. Enjoy the marshmallow pops immediately or store them in an air-tight contained in the fridge until ready to serve.
Banana Ghosts And Berry Ghouls
- 2 cups white baking chips
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 3 medium firm ripe bananas
- 18 Popsicle sticks
- 1 package (14 ounces) vibrant green Wilton candy melts, melted
- 12 fresh strawberries, hulled
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted
- In a microwave, melt white chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Peel bananas; cut in half widthwise. Insert sticks into bananas. Dip into melted chips, coating fruit completely; allow excess to drip off. Insert stick into a styrofoam block to stand.
- Insert a stick into each strawberry. Dip into green coating; allow excess to drip off. Insert into styrofoam block. Let stand until set. Using melted chocolate, pipe faces onto ghosts and ghouls.
- Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 20 minutes. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving
Rice Krispie Treat Mummies
- 6 snack-size rice krispie treats
- 3 cup white chocolate chips
- black edible piping gel or icing (found near cake decorating supplies)
- optional: red food coloring
- Unwrap rice krispie treats and set aside. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on half power for 2 minutes. Stir and return to microwave for 20 seconds at a time (still on half power) stirring after each until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Dip rice krispie treats in the chocolate being sure to coat the front and sides (the back side can remain uncovered). Place uncovered-side-down on a foil-lined plate or small baking sheet.
Repeat process with remaining rice krispie treats. Transfer plate/baking sheet to fridge or freezer to cool for 2-3 minutes.
While treats are cooling, spoon melted white chocolate into a small zip lock bag. Remove treats from fridge/freezer. Use scissors to snip off a tiny bit of one bottom corner of the chocolate-filled bag, then drizzle chocolate in a random pattern over the treats to create the look of mummy wrapping. Return treats to fridge or freezer for 1-2 minutes.
Pipe two dots onto each rice krispie treat to create mummy eyes. (Optional step, dip a Q-tip in red food coloring and dap two dots onto the rice krispie treats before adding the eyes to create a creepy “bloodshot” look.) Serve or store in airtight container up to 1 week.
