How to Make Dia de Los Muertos Sugar Skulls

ā€‹Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrated on November first and second. The traditions surrounding the day are somewhat of a combination of Halloween and All Soul's Day, as families gather to joyously celebrate their dearly departed relatives. Calaveras, or sugar skulls, are the symbol of the holiday most recognizable outside of Mexican communities. And you can make your own! While professionals take months to fashion and decorate sugar skulls for Dia de Los Muertos decorations, a recipe from Hungry Happenings whips them up in a day or so, and they are completely edible, as long as you don't add non-food decorations.

If you serve or display these at your Halloween party, be sure you've read up on Dia de Los Muertos so you can explain the holiday to your guests. The complete recipe and instructions are available in text at Hungry Happenings. ā€‹
