Dark chocolate or Edible Writing Gel/Icing
Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Make sure to stir to prevent burning.
While white chocolate is melting, gently rinse strawberries and pat dry.
Dip strawberries in melted white chocolate and place on parchment or wax paper. Use any excess to create a ghost tail/whisp on the paper.
Add eyes and a mouth with dark chocolate (melt and place in piping bag) or edible writing gel.
Muddled raspberries lend a vivid, red tint to this spooky cocktail (or mocktail!). This classic Paloma recipe is beautiful and balanced, leaving you with a smile on your face after every sip. To make a kid-friendly blood-red mocktail, simply omit the tequila. Looking for a different drink that still offers the perfect color? Check out our Razzleton Cocktail.
Cute? Check. Creepy? Check. A favorite Halloween treat is our Blackberry Creepy Crawly Cupcakes! To make these, simply follow the directions of your go-to cupcake recipe (boxed mix is fine—or try out our delicious Double Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes). Once cupcakes have cooled and been frosted, place a blackberry on top. Chocolate sprinkles function as spider legs and candy eyes add the finishing touch, making for a delightful Halloween dessert.
Berry Bloody Cocktail/Mocktail
The "Bloody Berry" cocktail (or mocktail) is a delicious and visually striking drink that offers a vibrant red color and a combination of sweet and tangy flavors. This simple drink takes only a handful of ingredients and a few minutes to assemble. Simply dice strawberries and muddle with raspberries. Add a squeeze of lime juice, cherry juice (or other red-hued juice), honey or simple syrup and tequila or club soda for the perfect Halloween drink.
