Marshmallow Ghost Tarts Recipe

 

 

I think this Halloween treat is too adorable not to share.  I found it at the Tenderflake website.  I have revised the recipe a little bit.  I’m sure this will be admired by all.

 

What You Will Need:

–   12 tart shells (I usually cheat and use the frozen ones)

–   1 package of white chocolate pudding mix

–   12 large marshmallows

–   1 cup of marshmallow topping

–   1 cup of (Stiffly) whipped topping mix

–   roughly 1 black licorice shoestring, to be cut up into about 1/8” pieces

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Bake the tart shells accordingly to what is stated on the package and then set aside to cool down.

2.   Make the pudding, as indicated on the packaging.

3.   Equally divide the pudding into the tart shells.

4.   Top each tart with 1 tsp of marshmallow topping.

5.   Place the licorice pieces into each marshmallow to create eyes, like it is shown on the picture above.  Place on top of the marshmallow topping.

6.   With a piping bag, pipe the topping mix on top of each marshmallow to create the ghost swirl type head.

 

*Make sure to refrigerate these until they are ready to be served.

 

 

Homemade Butterfingers Recipe

 

This is such a delicious recipe and since Halloween is just around the corner, I figured that this would be a good time to share as one of the main ingredients, candy corn, is readily available right now.

 

What You Will Need:

–   1 lb of candy corn

–   16 oz of peanut butter

–   16 oz of chocolate chips or semi-sweet baker’s chocolate squares

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Place the candy corn in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Stir and continue to cook in 20 second intervals until the candy corn is completely melted.

2.   Now, stir in the peanut butter.  If it seems hard to stir in, place in the microwave for 20 seconds.

3.   Once the contents of the bowl is completely mixed together, spread into an 8×8 pan, lined with wax paper.

4.   Let the mixture cool completely by placing into the fridge.

5.   Next, cut into squares, at the size you desire.

6.   Place the chocolates in another microwave save bowl and cook in 10 second intervals until melted.

7.   Dip the butterfinger mixture into the melted chocolate.  This may get a little messy though.

8.   Once covered in chocolate, place on wax paper so the chocolate can set.

 

Enjoy!
