Candy-Filled Cookies

These Halloween cookies are bursting with treats.  And they are easier to make than it might seem at first glance.  Just mix up a basic sugar cookie recipe and pick up some Halloween-themed cookie cutters to get started.  Fill your cookies with Delysia’s gourmet handmade marshmallows for a super sweet treat.

Creepy and delicious!  To make these gooey-eyed cookies, combine a box of yellow cake mix with some butter, cream cheese, and a drop or two of green food coloring.  Bake the cookies, then add a candy eyeball while still warm.

Caramel Apples

No Halloween festivity is complete without a stick caramel apple. Just melt a bagful of candy caramels, add a bit of heavy cream and dip your apples into the caramel one at a time.  This recipe includes tons of delicious topping ideas – M&Ms, chopped peanuts, chocolate chips.  You can even crush up some of Delysia’s Peanut Butter or Pecan Cayenne bark to coat your caramel apples.

Pumpkin Chocolate Whoopie Pies

These homemade pumpkin flavored whoopie pies are made from scratch and require a bit more effort, but we think they are worth it.  Use a small ice-cream scoop and add the filling with a pastry bag for more uniform pies.
