Wormy Apple Croissants

Gooey yet oh so wormy.  Perfect for a Halloween treat.These apple croissants are really fun to make. It was a little messy but it was soo worth it. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

1 granny smith apple
1 (8 ounce) package crescent rolls
1/4 caramel topping
gummy worms or bugs

Use a vegetable peeler to peel the apple ( this was kinda tricky so you can let a grown-up do this part). On a cutting board slice apples into Fourths with a small paring knife.

Cut the core out and dice(cut) the apples into small chucks

Place apples chucks in a small sauce pan and cover with water.Cook over medium heat for 3- to 5 minutes or until apples or soft. ( Be sure to pay attention, you don't want them to get too soft or else you will have applesauce)


On an ungreased baking sheet spread out the triangles of the crescent roll dough.

In a small bowl, use a mixing spoon to mix the apples and the caramel topping.

Drop 1 tablespoon of the apple mixture into the middle of each triangle.
Fold the dough over the filling and continue to roll into a crescent shape. Firmly press the edges together.

When croissants have cooled, add the gummies and drizzle caramel topping over each croissant.

And there you have it, bugs and all.
Remember to refrigerate any leftovers. I doubt there will be any though. These are bug-a-licious!

Wichy Wands

How do witches cast spells? With their witchy wands of course. These wands taste soo good, believe me you won't need a magic spell to make them disappear. This treat is a little messy but soo much fun!

30 caramels
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons milk
1 (10-ounce) bag of pretzel rods
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
non-stick cooking spray
baking sheet
microwave safe bowls
coffee mug
mixing spoon


Spray the non stick cooking spay onto the baking sheet. Set aside.

Microwave the caramels, butter, and milk in a mirowave safe bowl for 40 seconds (watch carefully)

Stir and microwave an extra 30 seconds. Be sure there are no lumps.

Now take one of the pretzel rods and use a mixing spoon to coat a little over a half of  the pretzel with the caramel. Place the pretzel rod on the baking sheet and allow to cool.

Put the chocolate chips in the coffee mug, and  microwave for 30 seconds. (Please watch carefully because I burned it the first time and had to do it again. I also used a liquid measuring cup since I burned the chocolate in the mug. Opps.)Once the caramel has cooled, dip the pretzels in the chocolate covering not even half of it allowing some of the caramel to show. I used the back of a spoon which it easier to spread. 

 Cover the chocolate part of the pretzel with sprinkles (my favorite part) I put a bowl underneath to catch the falling sprinkles.

Place the pretzels on a tray and allow chocolate to cool at room tempeture for 2 hours or in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Phewww! Finally finished. That took awhile but I did it. Now time for the best part...yum yum!

Easy Peasy Halloween Spooky Hand

This fun treat is sooo easy to make. You can really make this with no help at all.  A good idea to do with this hand is to place it in the candy bowl standing straight up or give out as treats. You can even make some at a halloween party with your friends.
 Have fun making this, I did.


1 plastic glove with all five fingers
1 bag of microwave popcorn
6 pieces of candy corn( sorry I have 5 in my picture)
piece of ribbon (any color, to tie the end) 

First take the glove and put a piece of candy in each finger

Next take the popcorn and fill the fingers and the middle of the hand

Then take the ribbon and tin in a knot and then a bow.

Finally glue the last piece of candy to the middle of the bow.

See I told you it was easy.
