Cake Ball Brains with Cherry BloodChocolate cake, white chocolate, and cherry sauce. Sounds delicious! Now take those ingredients and make bleeding brains out of them, and you've got yourself a truly gory Halloween treat. The real secret is silicone molds in the shape of brains, which every cook should have around the house. You'd be surprised at how often you use them when you have them. This recipe involves chocolate cake balls surrounded by white chocolate frosting. The inner part of the cake has a dollop of raspberry or cherry preserves, or ice cream topping as long as its red. When these cake balls are served, one cut with a fork will cause the red sauce to "bleed out," serving as the special effect you've waited for to see the reaction from your guests. Beth Jackson Klosterboer shares her recipe and procedure for making these ghoulish desserts to impress your friends and enemies at Hungry Happenings. As you can see from this picture, you can adjust the flavors and colors as you desire.
Witch Finger Cookies with Red Velvet Hot ChocolateDomestic Gothess brings us two Halloween recipes that will spark up any party! These witch's fingers are shortbread cookies, but the appearance makes them downright ghoulish. The fingernails are blanched almonds, and the overall look is enhanced with some cinnamon for dirt and food coloring for blood. These would be good with hot chocolate, but for a Halloween effect, make that hot chocolate red! But this hot chocolate isn't just colored red. Domestic Gothess came up with a recipe that's not only blood red, but has the taste of red velvet cake.Red velvet is vanilla with a hint of chocolate and a tangy flavour from the buttermilk. I thought that adding buttermilk to the hot chocolate might cause it to curdle, so I used a little cream cheese instead to add that classic hint of tanginess; it tastes very much like red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!The red velvet hot chocolate can be altered to be thick enough for dipping your cookies into or thinned to your own taste. Read how to make both of these Halloween treats at Domestic Gothess.ā€‹#food #partytreat #witchfinger #cookie #hotchocolate #cocoa #witch #blood #redvelvet #cake
