Easy Halloween Treats

Dear Chicago House,

Ok … I have no desire for this to become a cooking blog but Chicago teen was so creative with food at her Halloween party (check out recipes here and here) it would be a shame to to share her foodie delights.

Witches Broomsticks


  • Mini Reese’s peanut cups
  • Pretzel rods
These witches broomsticks are so simple to make. Unwrap each Reese’s cup and plonk a pretzel stick in the end!

Halloween Pretzels

Another easy Halloween treat.


  • 1 bag of Long rod pretzels
  • 1/2 bag Chocolate chips
  • Various sprinkles

Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl set above simmering water on the stove. Spoon melted chocolate over half of a pretzel rod and immediately coat with sprinkles.


Secret Halloween Cookies


  • 1/1/2 cuts of butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • few drops of orange food coloring
  • frosting
  • small m and m’s

Cream together butter and sugar then beats in aggs and food coloring. Add all other ingredients.

Roll out and with a pumpkin cookie cutter cut three shapes for each cookie. Remove the center of one of the cookies using a small round cookie cutter.

Bake at 400 deg F for 6 – 8 minutes

To assemble the cookie you will need two whole cookies and one with a cutout. Spread a thin layer of frosting on the top side of the first cookie, top with the cutout cookie. Put m and m’s into the cutout. Frost the underside of the last cookie and add to the stack. Pipe a pumpkin face and you are done!

Happy Halloween!
