Have I told you how much I love my job? Today I got to spend the day melting stuff and playing with food in my kitchen! By the end of the day I was covered in melted candy, but man….it was the best! I have to say, my hard work paid off today…. I had a blast partnering with Wilton to make the perfect Halloween treat – Frankenstein Edible Candy Bowls (did I mention that it is also really easy?)
That’s right – EDIBLE CANDY BOWLS. I have seen them done before, but this was my first attempt at making them…let’s just say that I think there will be a lot of edible candy bowls in my future! These Frankenstein Halloween Treats are the perfect Halloween project to make with your kids! They are fun to make, super cute and a delicious treat!
See below for How-To Video and Instructions:
Here is what you need:
- Wilton Candy Melts in green, black and white
- Small water balloons
- Wilton candy eyes
- Wilton red and black decorating icing
- Wilton writing tips (I needed a coupler to attach the tip to the icing)
- Black sugar sprinkles
- Mini Rolos
- Candy Corn
- Wax paper
- Cookie sheet
- Wilton decorating brush
Here is what you do:
- Cover cookie sheet with wax paper.
- Wash the water balloons and blow them up – do not make them too big!
- Melt the green Wilton candy melts according to the directions on the package, in a small microwaveable bowl.
- Gently dip the balloons in the melted candy covering a good portion of the balloon with the candy. Place balloon on the wax paper on the cookie sheet.
- Let the candy set for at least one hour.
- Carefully cut a small hole in the top of the balloon and slowly let the air out of the balloon (if you just pop it and let the air out quickly, the candy will crack)
- Gently pull the balloon out of the candy bowl.
- Melt a small bowl of black candy melts according to the directions on the packaging. Using the decorating brush, paint the black candy along the top rim of the bowl. While the candy is wet, dip the rim in the black sugar sprinkles. Let dry (only takes a few minutes to dry)
- Melt a small bowl of white candy melts according to the directions on the packaging. Paint a small amount of white candy on the back of the candy eyes and stick them to the bowl.
- Draw a mouth and scar on Frankenstein’s face.
- Use any of the left over candy melts to stick the mini Rolos to the sides of Frankenstein’s face.
- Let everything set, fill with candy of your choice (I always love candy corn) and enjoy!
