Super Easy Treats for My Simple Halloween Dessert Table – My Tuesday {ten} No.20

For this week’s Tuesday {ten} I thought I would share some super simple ideas I used to put together this Halloween dessert table a couple of weeks ago. Since my little guy has been taken off of food it really has been a struggle for me to even think of any kind of tasty treat. The thrill I used to have putting together parties isn’t quite the same, though food is such a social part of society, it is kind of hard hosting a gathering without incorporating it some how.

So despite what it may seem, this table was incredibly easy to put together and did not take much thought or time at all. Many of the desserts were made using prepacked goodies which made the preparation pretty quick and simple.

My Tuesday {ten}

{one} Witch Hat Cookies – I found these on the Betty Crocker website. They are simply made with fudge striped cookies and Hershey Kisses. Instead of the bow shown on the site I ran a bead of icing around the kiss and added some sprinkles for color.

{two} Night Owl Cookies – I used the Bright Ideasrecipe as inspiration for these. I made a miniature version using homemade sugar cookie dough and used white Candy Corn White Chocolate M&M’s for the eyes. I just love the cashew idea for the bill – too cute!

{three} Oreo Cakester Spiders – Another easy treat to put together using prepackedOreo Cakesters. I simply rolled the outside in black sprinkles to cover the white frosting and used chocolate covered pretzel sticks for the legs {just stuck in the sides}. The eyes were made from squished mini marshmallows.

{four} Candy Corn Roll Up Cookies – These were made from scratch using the recipe found atBetty Crocker but are incredibly easy. The added grated orange peel make these so yummy.

{five} Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies – another easy addition to the table and a great way to use up all the left over melted chocolate from the other recipes. I only dipped half the Oreo in chocolate and then dipped them in festive sprinkles.

One of glass apothecary jars was filled with regular candy corn mixed with Candy Corn White Chocolate M&M’s. {here’s a coupon if you’re looking for the M&M’s} – And the other jar was filled with a ‘put together’ snack mix made with pretzels, marshmallows, M&M’s, candy corn, raisins, and some cereal.

{six} Candy Corn Rice Kripsie Treats – These are made using the plain Rice Krispie treats recipe colored with food coloring and layered. {Lick the Bowl Good has some great tips for making these}

{seven} Nutter Butter Ghost Cookies – Nutter Butter Cookies dipped in melted white chocolate wafers with mini chocolate chips used as the eyes and mouths. {inspiration from original recipe found atNabisco}

{eight} Graveyard Pudding Cups – Clear Dixie 9oz cups filled with chocolate pudding topped with crushed chocolate graham crackers. The plastic skeletons were found at the dollar store as a garland and they were simply taken a part and washed for the toppers.

{nine} Jumbo Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows – Jumbo Jet Puffed Marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate wafers. To create the candy corn effect the marshmallows were dipped in the orange chocolate and left to harden on wax paper, then dipped in the yellow chocolate. Lollipop sticks were stuck in the tops for easy eating.

{ten} Brownie Ghosts – Simply made with the Reynolds Baked for You Ghost Shaped Baking Cups, some brownie mix and outlined with white icing. {inspiration from original recipe found at Reynolds Cupcake Central}

{eleven} Sprinkle Covered Chocolate Mini Cakes – I bought a couple packs of these prepackaged chocolate covered mini devil’s food cakes, dipped the tops in melted chocolate wafers and then dipped in festive sprinkles – super duper easy.

{twelve} White Chocolate Skeleton Finger Pretzels – Made with melted white chocolate wafers, pretzel sticks and the Wilton Skeleton Finger Mold found at Michaels.

Oh and the cupcake jars used in the center of the table are just orange and black colored cupcakes cut and placed in glass mason jars with a couple layers of white icing. They fill in the empty spaces nicely and are a lot easier than icing the cupcakes individually as you don’t have to be that precise!

~Now onto your Tuesday {ten}’s~
The Tuesday {Ten} is all about sharing what’s going on, things you love, recent purchases, cute photos…pretty much all the sweet tidbits that make up daily life that you’d like to share, bundled in to one post. It can be short and sweet or filled with pictures and details…anything goes – just casual and fun!
