Halloween Treats and Favors for Grown Ups

These Halloween favors and treats will help get the grown-ups in the party spirit!

Halloween truly is fun for all ages, but these treats and favors were designed with just the adults in mind.

Dome and Pedestal Treat Holder
Use hot glue to adhere a small upside-down terracotta pot to the bottom of a saucer to create a tiny pedestal dish. When the glue has cooled, paint the piece with a black, food-safe paint. Allow to dry.

Use your favorite Halloween border bunch to create a ½ wide strip. Carefully glue the strip around the edge of your saucer using a glue gun. Turn a glass hanging votive cup upside-down to use as a dome or bell jar. Trim the top with a bow and a couple of punched crows or bats. Glue a circular punched shape to the base.

Candied Apples for Big Kids
Here’s a grown-up version of a kid’s favorite! The tart green apples pair so nicely with the sweet chocolate, salt and crunchy pumpkin seeds.

Halloween_Treats_5

Cut a several twigs into 8 inch lengths and insert them into the bottom of several green apples. Slowly melt a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler on the stovetop. Swirl the top half of the apples in the melted chocolate, sprinkle with sea salt and roasted, shelled pumpkin seeds. Set on parchment paper to cool.

Once the chocolate has cooled, place the candy apple in a clear cellophane bag and tie a bow around the twig “stem”. Make a “Happy Halloween” tag using a rubber stamp, stickers, and solid or glittered cardstock. Attach the tag to the bow using a glue gun. Rest your bagged apple in a tiny terracotta saucer.

Wake the Dead Party Favor
Send your guests home with this Halloween brew!

Halloween_Treats_6

Take an apothecary-style jar and trim it with a couple of bands of Halloween tape. Wrap the neck with a length of chair, and create a tag that reads “Wake the Dead Blend”. Use a glue gun to attach the tag to the chain.

Trim the top of your bottle with a circle or medallion, punched from a piece of Halloween paper.

Fill your bottle with a rich ground coffee and stick a pair of skeleton arms reaching out of the “soil”.

Popcorn Balls for Grown-Ups

Halloween_Treats_7

Create your favorite basic popcorn ball recipe, and once you’ve formed your balls, roll them in black sea salt and toasted sesame seeds. Wrap the balls in plastic wrap once they have cooled.

Halloween_Treats_8

For each ball, cut five 6 by 8 inch pieces of orange and black crepe paper with your pinking shears. Stack these sheets, alternating the colors, and wrap the stack around a popcorn ball. Tie off the ends using rick-rack or ribbon. Fluff the ends of the paper so they open like a flower. Create a medallion using your favorite Halloween punches, papers and stickers, and attach using paper glue or double-stick tape.
