This year we had a Halloween Party for our kids. Last year we were too busy having just had Evelyn a little more than three weeks before Halloween. It was with great enthusiasm I started to plan the treats for the party. After my first try at making candy last Easter, I decided to make some again for the party.
First I ordered some molds and then made a peanut butter filling. Using a double boiler I melted the chocolate to start making the candy.
Next I coated the mold with a layer of chocolate. To speed things along, I put it in the freezer for a couple minutes. After it hardened, I added a layer of peanut butter filling. Lastly, I added the back layer of chocolate to the mold. Here is what they look like before the last step.
Once they were all done I wrapped them in foil, so they were ready for the party. Elliott loved them. I think they were his favorite Halloween candy.
Along with peanut butter filled pumpkins, I also made solid chocolate bats, solid white chocolate ghost suckers, and chocolate/white chocolate acorns with a maple filling. We will definitely do this again next year, but on a much smaller scale. If these are around they are eaten in unhealthy quantities. I guess that pretty much sums up Halloween though right?
