Witch Treats

Here's a great idea from {Our Best Bites} and they have many more, so check them out!
Love these witch wands. Just long pretzels dipped in white chocolate - dark would be good, too though. And sprinkled in Halloween colors. She says those little buckets are from the dollar store, too! I love how they're sitting in candycorns. Cute!

I've always wanted to make these:
These are fabulous! They are seriously easy to make also. All you need are:

-1 pkg hershey's kisses

-1 pkg keebler's fudge stripe cookes

-orange frosting or caramel

Just turn the cookies over and attach the kisses using frosting or caramel. I do think the frosting looks cuter especially with the bow, but that looks kinda hard. The great thing about these is that they are so easy!! No baking or anything. I'm sure it's good both ways.
And another one of my favorites:

My mom's birthday is Halloween, so she was always a self-proclaimed witch. She dressed up as a witch every year and she also made witch's brew every year.

Witch's Brew aka Homemade Rootbeer

5 gallons cold water (also equal to 80 cups)

5 pounds white sugar

1 (2-ounce) bottle root beer concentrate (you can buy it in the spice section of most stores)

5 pounds dry ice

Place 4 gallons of the cold water in a large container. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour in root beer extract and mix. Add the dry ice and put the lid on loosely so the gas can escape. Be sure that no one touches the dry ice with bare hands. It can freeze-burn skin in less than 5 seconds. Let it brew for about 15 minutes. Add the last gallon of water and let brew for another 15 minutes. Serves about 30 thirsty people who come back for seconds and thirds. You can also cut the recipe in half to serve about 15. If you want to really keep that dry ice going for a long time, I would recommend buying even more than 5 lbs! It's actually really easy, and looks awesome brewing out of a cauldron.

I loved all the ideas on Our Best Bites. I saw them a few days ago via Facebook. We've made the mummies, pumpkin sammies, witch hats, one bone with blood (extra dough from the mummies), and the Monster Faces. My daughter has been loving the Monster Faces, and my little guy loved the mummies!
