Sweeten Up Your Menu this Halloween
Posted on October 15, 2012
Are you still searching for something new and creative to add to your dessert menu this Halloween? It’s not too late and there are a lot of fun options to choose from.
Let’s take a look at what’s cooking around the interwebs in the realm of sweet and spooky treats.
Pumpkin Pie Bites
Pumpkin pie bites from the talented Bakerella . Dress these little bites of pie as jack-o-lanterns and you have yourself a lovely and Halloween-worthy dessert. To get these little pumpkins to just the right size, use a mini muffin/cupcake pan.
Candy Corn Mousse
For the silly, yet sophisticated crowd, how about… Candy corn mousse!
Also easy to make with two simple ingredients: candy corn and heavy cream, this mousse is perfect for coffee shop treats or after dinner delights. To get this recipe right, use a solid counter top mixer to make the whipped cream and spoon the finished mousse into ramekins for service.
Spooky Candy Apple
Last, for a truly inspired Halloween confection… spooky candy apples! How cool is that?
For this recipe, a candy thermometer is absolutely crucial. When the boiled sugar is malleable and ready to spin, it creates a wormy, yet beautiful finishing touch for the perfect presentation on any plate.
Happy (almost) Halloween Everyone!
