Halloween Recipes 07: Candycorn Pretzel Kisses


You will need three ingredients: Candycorn, pretzels, and some type of Hershey’s Kisses. (I used the original type, the lady who did this used the “Hugs” ones.)

Preheat your oven to 250º Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with foil.



Put pretzels on the baking sheet and put a Kiss on top of each. Then put them is the oven and watch them carefully. The lady who originally did this recipe put them in for 4 minutes, it only took two minutes in my oven. The point is for them to be mushy enough for you to squish a candy corn on top.


When they are ready to be taken out, they should look like this ^^^ shiny, but they still have their shape.


Squish a candy corn on top and you’re done! Stick them in the fridge if you want them to harden up quickly.


This gets:


5 Candycorns

Halloween Recipes 06: Cinnamon Crisps

img_3429First get a cookie cutter and cut out shapes of a flour tortilla. (The original had a bat cookie cutter but I don’t have one so I used leaf cookie cutters. You could actually use any cookie cutter you want, like for christmas you could use a gingerbread man cookie cutter etc. etc.)


Preheat your oven to 350º (fahrenheit) and get out a baking sheet and line it with foil.


Then melt 4 tbsp (tablespoon) of butter in your microwave using 10 second increments.



Combine in a bowl 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 1/2 tsp (teaspoons) of cinnamon.



Dip the cutouts first in butter, then in the cinnamon mixture and put them on the baking sheet.


When the oven is heated up, put them in and set the timer for 10 minutes. When you take it out, let it sit for at least 2 minutes.





Note: If you are not experienced with cooking with an oven, get a parent’s help! And don’t forget to use great caution when you take out the baking sheet.

This gets:
