I love Halloween! Even though I am turning 10 soon, I still love the fun of dressing up and of course getting candy! I also love going to Halloween parties and I thought these would be fun desserts for my friends. I have not tried making these yet, they do look a little harder than some of the other things I have made, but I may give it a try and see how I do!
- 6 Hazelnut truffles (creator used Ferrero Rocher truffles)
- 5 ounces white candy coating, chopped
- 1 green or red fruit roll up
- 6 Oreo cookies
- 1 (6 oz.) can black decorative icing
- 6 slivered almonds, cut in half
The recipe is only for 6 Dracula cookies, of course if you want more you should increase the ingredients! You can also use cake mix as an alternative to the truffles for the head – you would just have to make them as round cakes. This option would make more than 6 cookies, so you would need to increase all the other ingredient amounts too!
Place truffles on a waxed paper-lined pan. Freeze for 10 minutes or until chilled. Meanwhile, in a microwave bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip truffles in coating to cover completely; allow excess to drip of. Return to prepared pan. Refrigerate until hardened.
Cut Fruit Roll-Up into 2-1/2-in. x 1-1/2-in. strips. Reheat candy coating if necessary. Dip truffles in candy coating again; allow excess to drip off. Place one on each cookie. Wrap a fruit strip around base of truffle for cape. Let stand until set.
Using decorating icing and a round tip, pipe hair, eyes and mouth on each. Insert almonds for fangs. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 cookies.recipe and photo courtesy of katherine aras
