Halloween/Fall Peanut Butter Treats

Halloween will be here in just three days!  Are you prepared?

We usually get 100-200 Trick-or-Treaters each year.  I brought 22 bags of candy home from the store and hid them … I know that if a bag gets opened up, it will disappear ;)

Today, I am sharing a few quick and easy treats that have one thing in common … peanut butter!

Nutter butter bats

I made these Nutter Butter bats last year and they are my most popular treat this year!

Nutter Butter Zombie Eyeballs

Happy Zombie-ween!  Celebrate with Nutter Butter Zombie Eyeballs!

I love these Peanut Butter Cup Brooms (courtesy of Hershey’s)!  Thank you to Colleen B. (a reader) … she was thinking of my peanut butter lovin’ hubby and sent me the info … so sweet!

Nutter Butter Acorns

Nutter Butter Acorns are so easy to make … this is the “2012 Acorn” … possibly my favorite acorn!

012

My first acorn … a version that I’ve seen done so many different ways … can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter!

Hope you enjoyed these peanut butter treats :)

Summer – Part 3 …Tiki Huts and my contribution to Shark Week

Do you remember Summer – Parts 1 and 2, we sailed to the sweet place of Sugar Island

Candy pretzel palm trees

It only makes sense that lodging on Sugar Island would be in Tiki Huts made from candy …

Would you prefer to stay in one of those exotic fancy dancy huts that is perched above the water …

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tiki Huts

I have never stayed in a hut, have you?  Do they have modern plumbing … like bathrooms?

This what you will need to build your own candy hut …

  • Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups
  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
  • Graham Crackers
  • White Candy Coating (such as CandiQuik)
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Blue Piping Gel
  • Candy flower sprinkles
  • Small paint brush (food safe)

To make the Tiki Huts …

  1. Melt about half of the bag of PB chips in the microwave.  Mine was very thick and I added some paramount crystals (you could also use vegetable oil or shortening).  Place a dot of melted PB chips on one Mini PB cup (small side up).
  2. Place a Kiss on top of Mini  PB cup, let it sit a moment to harden up.
  3. Use the paint brush to cover the Kiss with the melted PB chips and chill or let harden.  I like the brush strokes, it creates texture!

To make the graham crackers island and water, follow the same steps as when we made sailboats and palm trees …

P1030119a

  • Smear melted white candy on graham cracker, sprinkle cinnamon/sugar, add a Tiki Hut (or 2), add a few flowers, let harden!

P1030120a

  • Smear melted white candy on graham cracker, chill for a few minutes, smear blue piping gel, add a Tiki Hut (or 2, or 3)!

Oh … my contribution to Shark Week …

 

As you can see from the photo above … these are shark free waters!   This is a shark free blog … as I mentioned in the past … Jaws scared me for life ;)

I always look forward to your comments!
