Halloween is a holiday where the focus is on having a good time, and even if you’re too old to go hunting through your neighborhood for treats, you can still enjoy some great Halloween recipes at home to get in the spirit of the holiday. With just a little work, you can make some great and tasty Halloween recipes that will allow you to enjoy the holiday, whether it’s entertaining guests at a costume party or just a night of scary movies with a friend. Let’s take a look at the recipes now:
Easy Caramel Apples
Even if you’re not up to Halloween recipes that require you to make your own caramel, you can still make some great caramel apples in your kitchen. Grease some wax paper before you start, then place 40 small caramel cubes in a small saucepan with one tablespoon of water. Melt this mixture using low heat until the mixture is smooth.
Remove the stems from five caramel apples and stick a wooden stick through the center of each apple. Dip each apple in the caramel mixture and coat thoroughly before placing on the wax paper. Let set in the fridge, return the treat to room temperature before eating, and enjoy!
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
The next of our Halloween recipes is particularly good if you’ve got kids in the house, since they’ll be decorating a jack-o-lantern. When decorating time comes, rather than throw away the seeds, remove them from the rest of the pumpkin innards, but don’t wash them. Place these seeds in a single layer on a cookie sheet, add salt to taste, and bake in your oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally. Within 15 to 30 minutes, the seeds should be a light golden color and will make a tasty Halloween snack!
Snacks like candy corn are common around Halloween, but the next of our Halloween recipes is a way to make regular popcorn appropriate for your Halloween party. This one is a snap: simply add some red food coloring when you melt the butter for your popcorn, and the popcorn should soak up that color and look as if it’s bloody when you add the butter. For best results, try to find powder or paste food coloring instead of the liquid sort; the colors will be more vibrant. As you can see, having some great recipes for Halloween can be a snap with just a few little tricks in the kitchen.
