Halloween Recipes Ghostly Bites
Ghostly bites are a simple Halloween treat that will thrill your family and friends, and the best part is they are super easy to make. I don't know anyone who doesn't enjoy snacking on these ghostly Halloween snack bites.
Halloween is the time of year we look for spooky recipes and fun food ideas. I know how to make egg eyeballs, I top my pasta dishes with mozzarella eyeballs, in fact, I have quite a few eyeball recipes in my cookbook. But I did not have too many recipes that ended up being ghostly, so these ghostly bites are a nice change of pace for myself and my family. It's also nice to have a simple Halloween treat that doesn't take a lot of time or skill to create. When you see how easy these Halloween dessert snacks are, you will make them all year long.
You will need to gather all your ingredients to make the ghostly bites. I like to get everything I need before I begin my recipe. This way, I do not have to stop mid-recipe to run and find one of the ingredients. You might not have something you need and that could ruin your recipe. So, you will need:
- 2 Cups Confectioners Sugar
- 6 Cups Crispix Cereal
- 3-4 Squares Log House Almond Bark
- Wax Paper
- Measuring Cup
- 1 Teaspoon
- 1 Tablespoon
- Baking Pan
- 1 Gallon Size Ziploc Bag
Ghostly Bites Recipe & Preparation Supplies
Ingredients & Supplies
2 Cups Confectioner Sugar
6 Cups Crispix Cereal
3-4 Sq. Almond Bark
Microwave Safe Bowl
Teaspoon & Tablespoon
1 Gallon Size Plastic Bag
First, melt 4 squares of your Log House Almond Bark in a microwaveable bowl, it will probably take about 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate and put it in for another 30 seconds if it's not melted yet. Don't overcook the chocolate, you don't want it to burn. You will end up with about 6 or 7 ounces of melted bark.
Each time you heat the chocolate be sure to stir it with a spoon.
When your chocolate is ready pour a total of 6 cups of the Crispix cereal into the bowl. Put the cereal in gradually and mix small amounts of the cereal into the chocolate. Stir the mix well each time you pour some cereal in, and stir it gently. You don't want to crush the cereal. When all the cereal and chocolate are mixed together, set the bowl to the side. Now it's time to prepare your pan.
Put a sheet of wax paper into your pan. Pour the cereal and chocolate mix into the pan on top of the wax paper. Spread the mix in the pan and let it sit and cool off for at least 10 minutes.
Put 2 cups of confectioners sugar into your 1 gallon plastic bag. By now, your chocolate and cereal mix should be cooled enough to work with. Break the mix in the pan into small pieces. Put the broken mix into the plastic bag and seal the bag. Leave the air in so there is lots of room in the bag.
Shake that bag gently and make sure to coat all the chocolate coated cereal with the confectioners sugar. You can see what it should look like in the photo below. Keep the mixture in the plastic bag for about 10 minutes to let the sugar coating stick to the mix.
Now put the mixture in the plastic bag into a serving bowl or on a serving tray. Give it a Halloween feeling by putting it in a bowl or on a tray that has a Halloween theme decoration. Or, you can do the same thing we did, put something Halloweeny into your serving dish. See the little ghost statue we put in?
It's fun to use Halloween theme platters or bowls to serve these ghostly bites. It helps set the atmosphere for some fun when you use a theme. And,in case you haven't guessed, my favorite theme is Halloween!
