Spooky S'mores Halloween Treat

Spooky Halloween s’mores anyone? While the traditional graham, marshmallow and chocolate stack is sublimely sweet as is, why not go for a holiday version that includes scary skeletons (ok, not really scary – more of a cute candy versions), ‘dirt’ and ‘worms’.

Last Halloween I made monster s’mores with ooey gooey marshmallows and candy eyes. This year I tried my hand at making my own candy. It’s no secret that I’m not always a whiz in the kitchen. So, when I found a skeleton candy mold I was somewhat skeptical. Making candy that actually looked like what it was supposed to was so much easier than I thought. That made this creepy sweet completely easy to make.

Try this out as a pre-holiday treat, make the spooky s’mores with your child on a chilly fall evening or put together a batch for a Halloween party!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Skelton candy mold

·        Candy melts – I used orange ones, but you can also use white chocolate (or add your own hue to melted white chocolate with food coloring).

·        Graham crackers

·        Chocolate cupcake mix – I don’t mind using a mix, but if you have a favorite recipe you can try it out here.

·        Gummy or sour gummy worms

·        Marshmallows

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Bake the cupcakes. Let them cool completely. Cut them horizontally into slices.

2.     Microwave the candy melts or chocolate. Follow the directions on the package.

3.     Pour the melted candy into the mold.

4.     Refrigerate the candy until it is completely hard. Pop it out onto a plate when it’s ready.

5.     Toast a marshmallow. If you have a campfire or fire pit, toast away the old fashioned way. If not, you can microwave it (on top of a graham cracker for approximately 10 seconds) or toast it in the oven (on top of a graham cracker in an oven-safe pan).

6.     Stack the marshmallow on top of the graham cracker.

7.     Crumble and press a cupcake slice on top.
