Try one of our top 3 favorite simple and quick Halloween No-Bake Treats!
#1 Mummy Truffles!
These mummy truffle bites don’t have a trace of “scary” thanks to the decadent pumpkin cheesecake filling.
1 1/2 cups gingersnap cookie crumbs
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
white chocolate chips or white dipping chocolate (like CandiQuik)red food coloring
1. In a large bowl combine gingersnap crumbs, pumpkin puree, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, cinnamon, salt, and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and mix into truffle mixture.
2. Cover and chill until dough is solid enough to roll into balls - about 1 hour in the fridge or 30 minutes in the freezer. When cold enough, roll mixture into 12-14 balls. Place a toothpick in each ball.
3. Melt remaining white chocolate chips or white dipping chocolate in a small bowl. Use toothpicks to dip each truffle ball into the white chocolate, being sure to coat all sides. Gently shake off excess chocolate. Place chocolate-covered truffle balls on a baking sheet or plate lined with wax paper, parchment paper, or foil. Chill for 3-5 minutes until chocolate hardens.
4. Drizzle more white chocolate over the truffles. Soak the end of a Q-tip in red food coloring. Dab 2 dots of food coloring to make the mummy eyes. Handle carefully so you don't wipe off the eyes. Store chilled in airtight container.
#2 Salted Camel Candy Corn Bark!
Looking for an easy-to-make treat that is both salty and sweet? Look no further. This Halloween-friendly bark will do the trick.
75 pretzels (I used waffle style)
16 ounces vanilla candi-quik coating
11 ounces caramel bits
9 ounces candy corn M&M’s (could use regular candy corns as well)
1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and butter or lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. Then place the pretzels in the pan side by side.
2. Melt caramel in a microwavable bowl according to package directions. Stir caramel until smooth and then spoon caramel over each individual pretzel. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
3. Melt the vanilla coating in the microwave according to package directions. Pour the coating over the caramel and spread evenly. Then place M&M’s or candy corn on top, quickly as it will harden fast.
4. Allow candy to harden and then cut into pieces. Peel the wax paper from the caramel and enjoy!
The caramel hardens fast so you need to be quick spreading it and put the candy on as soon as the chocolate is spread.
#3 Vampire Doughnuts!
Pick up a dozen of your fave doughnuts to quickly make these delicious little vampires. Really, any doughnut will do (except doughnut holes, of course).
12 pairs plastic fake vampire teeth
1 dozen doughnuts (I used glazed doughnuts)
24 mini candy eyes (or white and black decorating gel)
Red and Black decorating gel
1. Take a pair of the vampire teeth, and hold them closed. Gently place the teeth in the center of a doughnut, and then carefully allow the teeth to open. Wiggle the teeth so that they fit perfectly into the center of the doughnut, and place the doughnut onto a serving plate. Repeat with the remaining doughnuts and vampire teeth until all the vampires are made.
2. For each pair of vampire eyes, lightly moisten the backs of 2 candy eyes, and gently press them to the doughnut so they stick. If using the black and white decorating gels to make the eyes, then first place 2 drops of white gel onto each doughnut, followed by a smaller drop of black gel directly onto each white gel eye.
3. Use the red decorating gel to draw blood around the teeth of the doughnuts.If desired, use the black gel to draw a widow’s peak onto each doughnut or on random doughnuts. Allow the gel to dry about 20 minutes, and serve.
