Bloody Body Parts Jello Cups
Super easy and gory.
You will need:
- red jello,
-clear plastic cups
-gummy candy body parts
-edible candy blood or red food coloring mixed in corn syrup
Follow the directions of the red jello and put in the clear cups. I found from the dollar store some gummy candy body parts. While the jello was still a liquid I placed the gummy candy eyeballs in it and then placed in the fridge to set. Once the jello is set I placed some finger gummy candy on top. To add a more bloody effect I did some dribbles of candy blood on the body parts and rim of the cup.
Halloween Soft Sugar Cookies
These cookies are so soft and delicious!
What you need:
-1 stick and 1/2 of butter softened
-3/4 cup of sugar
-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
-2 1/2 cups of flour
-1/2 tsp of baking powder
-Halloween cookie cutters
-3 cups of Confectioners Sugar
-1/4 tsp of cream of tartar
-2 egg whites
Directions for the cookies:
In a large bowl mix the softened butter, egg, sugar and vanilla until nice and smooth. Mix the flour and baking powder in a separate medium bowl and then add to the butter mixture ( add a little bit of the flour at a time).
Once the dough is mixed well divide the dough in two equal parts. Roll out on parchment paper and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to 1 day(You MUST do this step).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Remove the dough, roll out(I placed the dough in between parchment paper and then rolled) and cut out your Halloween cookie cutter shapes and place on the baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. 8 minutes seemed to be perfect!
Royal icing is great because it hardens.
Beat the egg whites and slowly mix in the confectioners sugar and cream of tartar.
Once cookies are cool decorate with icing and sprinkles. Enjoy!
