Need a dessert that’s striking enough to make guests hesitate to eat it? Try making some jello worms. By cooling your jello inside straws, you’ll have multicolored Earth crawlers ready to eat in no time. Make them look more at home by baking a single layer of chocolate cake and breaking it into crumbles to create soil.
You can also put Oreos in a blender to make the same effect, just take out the filling first!
Baking for the holidays can either be a fun experience or an exhausting one. It all depends on how many people you’re trying to feed and what you’re planning on making. And no matter what you’re baking or how skilled you are, make sure you’re practicing safe baking methods. Did you know that 42% of people walk away from the kitchen while baking to talk on their phone or text? Don’t let all those cute pumpkin patches Instagram posts distract you from your goal of baking the best Halloween desserts ever.
Halloween is a great time of year to do exactly that because the dessert recipes are so much fun! People will love these tasty and neat recipes because they’ll be as much fun to look at as they will be to eat. Have fun trying out something new this Halloween, and don’t forget to leave a bite for yourself!
