With Halloween parties are becoming more popular each year, the Halloween dessert ideas have also become a part of this. These ideas range from simple to mind blowing. The choices are endless as well as fun and you could spend hours trying them out before you settle for one. Here are some of the most popular Halloween dessert ideas that are sure to make your guests go “ah”
Traditional Chocolate Cake
First is the traditional chocolate cake. If you have friends who do not like chocolate, this is sure to make them happy. You can buy ready made ones or if you are in a mood to experiment, you can make it yourself. The recipe would include heavy cream, eggs, milk, sugar, cocoa, butter and vanilla. This is one that you can have for breakfast or for a snack anytime of the day.
Hot Chocolate Shake
You can also try making hot chocolate. The ingredients would be equal parts of butter and chocolate chips, heated in a microwave. You can add a few nuts as well as some raisins if you are going to use them. You can wrap it in a cling wrap and refrigerate for about an hour before serving. It would be best served when it is still slightly warm but if you want it to be served right away, then leave it out for a bit longer.
Another good option would be to put the chocolate mix into a small zip lock bag and then seal it. Take it out and then heat it in the microwave for about 10 seconds until it becomes soft and smooth. Once this is done, you can pour it over crushed ice. This is one that you can have for desert as well. You can also add some nuts or dried fruits to enhance the flavor.
You can also try something that goes beyond chocolate. There are fruits that are actually flavored with chocolate. For example, there are orange sherbet and orange juice that are very sweet. There are also lemon sherbet and lemons that are great ideas. You can also get candies that are flavored with chocolate such as dark chocolate.
Chocolate Milk Shakes
If you like a good shake, how about chocolate milk shakes? Well, instead of using the traditional milk, you can substitute soy milk and have a shake for an easy dinner. This would be a nice addition to any party. If you do not like the taste of soy, you can use non-dairy milk instead. The texture should be soft and creamy as well.
If there are kids in the house who are into candy, you can think about some well-known kid favorites such as M&Ms or more recently Hershey’s Chocolate. You can also find some healthier choices such as fruit dip. You can place it on a tortilla shell or if you are putting it in a bowl, you can use a spoon. Some even use ice cream toppings and it is quite tasty.
These are just a few of the healthy and nutritional treats that you may try. You should experiment and find out what combinations interest you most. Just remember to eat healthy and stay away from fattening foods. Also be sure to have fun and don’t be afraid to experiment. After all, the most important thing about Halloween is to have fun, right?
