With Halloween a few days away, I’m bringing out all of the tricks and treats for our family to enjoy this holiday! Being a mom has really made me appreciate and elevate all holiday traditions, and as our toddler has gotten older, it’s been so sweet watching her enjoy the traditions as much as we do. We can’t wait for our son to be old enough to understand what’s going on, but at the same time, we’re fine with him staying little – oh, parenthood.
- Cupcake liners
- Package of Oreos
- 1-2 cups of peanut butter (depending on how many you want to make)
- 10 to 20 ounces of white baking chocolate (depending on how many treats you want to make)
To make chocolate covered peanut butter cups, place cupcake liners in a 12 cup muffin pan. Place a heaping tablespoon in each cupcake liner, smoothing the peanut butter down to cover the entire bottom of the liner. Place the muffin pan in the freezer for an hour or two, or overnight. When the peanut butter is hardened, lay parchment paper on a hard surface and melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Drop peanut butter in the white chocolate quickly and cover completely with chocolate. Place the peanut butter cups on the parchment paper to cool and harden. Before the chocolate hardens, add sprinkles and googly eyes.
To make the chocolate covered Oreos, melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Dip Oreos in the white chocolate quickly and cover completely. Place the Oreos on the parchment paper to cool and harden. Before the chocolate hardens, add sprinkles and googly eyes.
