Candy Corn Oreo Ice Cream

Candy Corn Oreo Ice Cream

Candy corn is a candy that is known for its look more than its flavor. The yellow, orange and white triangles are everywhere during the fall, from well before Halloween through Thanksgiving, and they’ve inspired all kinds of other treats, including a limited edition Oreo cookie. Most candy corns don’t have a lot of flavor to them beyond being slightly sweet. The best candy corns ... Read More »

Halloween Skeleton Cookie Cutters

Halloween Skeleton Cookie Cutters

Skulls and bones can be great designs for Halloween cookies. I’ve made them many times over the years, carefully piping the details of little bones onto cookie cutouts with a tiny-tipped piping bag. The results are great, but the process is time consuming and it is helpful if you’re watching a Halloween movie to pass the time as you work. Most skeleton cookie cutters just ... Read More »

Salted Caramel Apple Mug Cake

Salted Caramel Apple Mug Cake

Mug cakes are exactly what they sound like: they are cakes that are “baked” in mugs in the microwave. If you want to be fancy about it, you can actually get away with calling this molecular gastronomy, but they’re just a way to get a warm, fresh serving of cake as quickly as possible.
