Halloween Count down

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Halloween Count down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to start doing a Halloween count down. So invite some friends to visit my blogspot for some great ideas to decorate. From home, crafting,and food. If you have that you would like to share please do so.

To start out how about making your favorite cupcakes. Frost them and add cottoncandy on top (for spiderwebs). Then either a chocolate spider, gummy spider or even a plastic spider.

How cool is this simple plus you'll be the talk of the town.


How about this.

Mask Cookies

At low speed beat cookie dough,cocoa and flour until combined; divide into two pieces. Between sheets of wax paper roll out dough, one piece at a time, to scant 1/4" thickness. Stack on baking sheet: freeze until firm, 15-20minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, Remove top sheet of wax paper from dough. Using a mask template or make it up as you go. cut out 10 cookies, rerolling scraps and chilling as necessary. Transfer cookies from wax paper to baking sheets, laying centers over lollipops sticks. lightly press onto sticks. Bake 10-11 minutes or until crisp. Cool on racks, 10 minutes. Remove from pans; coll completely on racks. At low speed beat meringue powder with 6Tbs. water. Beat in sugar, Increase speed to high; beat until stiff and glossy, 3 minutes. Divide and tint with food coloring. Transfer icing to plastic food storage bags with one corner snipped off; pipe onto cookies. Here comes the fun part!!!!

Sprinkle with sugar crystals and glitter.

1pkg 18oz refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

10 (6'') lollipop sticks (not plastic)

3Tbs meringue powder (Wilton's product have it)
