This year is full of new beginnings for my kids. They are all enrolled in a Catholic school and they love it. The school is pretty lax about Halloween which is perfect for Justin. He loves handing out his nifty Halloween Treat Bag and Free Printables to his fellow classmates. He is constantly asking me when he can bring in his Halloween Treat Bag and I have to keep reminding him that its only the beginning of October. A whole month of waiting for this little guy has got to be pure torment.I remember when I was a young little man, my mother and grandmother would break out their double boilers and melt down their chocolate wafers and make some really cool chocolate pops very much like mine. Being such religious and avid Christians, Halloween Treat Bags were kinda taboo around my house. I, however, am not such an avid and religious Christian so, my kids get some pretty amazing and scary/cute chocolates and other great creations.
Let’s face it. The whole fun of Halloween is about the candy, the spooky costumes and well, dare I say some really cool printables too. Having so many kids that are still at the age where trick or treating is the only priority on the 31st of October, some kids don’t celebrate. For whatever reasons, that’s cool, it’s the thought that counts when Justin delivers these super cool Halloween Treat Bags and Free Printables. He’s been talking about it for days and days now.
Halloween Treat Making:
- 1 Ghost chocolate mold
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate
- Black Gel icing
- Lolli sticks
- Clear candy bags
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt down your chocolate 30 seconds at a time stirring in between until smooth and fully melted.
- Carefully fill in your eyes and mouth with your black gel icing and drop your mold gently on the counter to release any bubbles.
- Using a tablespoon, spoon your chocolate into the molds making sure you get maximum coverage.
- Again, gently drop your mold to release any air bubbles.
- Stick your sticks into the chocolate and place in freezer for about 15 mins.
- When they are nice and solid, take them out of the freezer and gently push them out.
- Put the ghosts in the fridge on a plate to warm up a little (we don’t want sweat).
Lastly, let them sit on the counter for about 15 mins before you bag these cuties and attach your printable.
