7. Candy corn
Candy corn is a classic Halloween treat, and it’s relatively easy to make at home. There are two methods for making candy corn: one with boiling sugar, and one without.
The method with boiling sugar is the traditional way of making candy corn, but it can be dangerous if not done properly. If you’re set on using this method then please read all instructions before starting.
For those who want to use a safer option or have children in the kitchen with them, there’s an alternative that involves no cooking whatsoever- simply melt white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and stir in some yellow food coloring until the desired color is reached! This recipe will work best if you have light-colored chocolates or white chocolate chips.
8. White chocolate covered pretzels
White chocolate-covered pretzels are one of the most popular treats this time of year. They’re simple to make, but it’s important to have a few key ingredients on hand.
Pretzel rods work best for these tasty treats because they hold up well in the chocolate and don’t fall apart as easily as other types of pretzels do.
You’ll also need white chocolate, which is made with cocoa butter rather than milk or dark chocolate so it has a lighter taste that will complement any type of candy coating you decide to use after dipping your pretzels in it (chocolate is not recommended).
After dipping them in the white chocolate, you can sprinkle your favorite toppings like crushed peppermint candies or sprinkles onto them.
9. Caramel apples
Caramel apples are a common treat during the fall season. They are often made with apple slices dipped in melted caramel, then rolled in crushed nuts or sprinkles.
This recipe is for making your own homemade caramel sauce to use when dipping your apples. The ingredients include butter, sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. It’s easy to make this recipe at home with simple kitchen tools like an oven or stovetop burner and a pot that can be used on the stovetop.
You will want to watch it carefully as you cook it because if left unattended, the boiling mixture could overflow and potentially cause a fire! When finished cooking, allow the mixture to cool before adding any other ingredients such as vanilla extract or salt which would change its consistency.
We hope you’ve found this blog post informative and helpful about the best Halloween treats to enjoy this year, for adults or kids. These are all simple recipes that come together quickly with minimal fuss – perfect if you’re not feeling up to spending hours in the kitchen.
