Halloween Masks

Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

  • Nutter Butters
  • Red candy melts for Devils
  • Black candy melts for Kitties
  • Orange and black candy melts for Tigers
  • Sugar eyes or white and black candy melts

Instructions

  • Melt red candy melts in the microwave on 50% power. (I like to keep my melts warm on an electric griddle set to 200° and covered with a kitchen towel.) Dip Nutter Butters and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Meanwhile, make your devil horns. Transfer the leftover red candy melts to a Ziploc sandwich bag. Snip of the corner and pipe the desired shape onto another wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Attach horns to the Devil mask using melted candy. Use melted white candy for the eyes and add a dab of black for the pupil (or you could use a food writer). Chill until hardened.
  • For Kitties:
  • Melt black candy melts in the microwave on 50% power. (I like to keep my melts warm on an electric griddle set to 200° and covered with a kitchen towel.) Dip Nutter Butters and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Meanwhile, make your ears. Transfer the leftover black candy melts to a Ziploc sandwich bag. Snip of the corner and pipe each cat ear onto another wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Attach ears to the kitty mask using melted candy and add some whiskers. Use melted white candy for the eyes and add a dab of black for the pupil (or you could use a food writer). Chill until hardened.
  • For Tigers:
  • Melt orange and black candy melts in the microwave on 50% power. (I like to keep my melts warm on an electric griddle set to 200° and covered with a kitchen towel.) Dip Nutter Butters and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Meanwhile, make your ears. Transfer the leftover orange candy melts to a Ziploc sandwich bag. Snip of the corner and pipe each cat ear onto another wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  • Attach ears to the Tiger mask using melted candy. Use the melted black candy to make his stripes. Use melted white candy for the eyes and add a dab of black for the pupil (or you could use a food writer). Chill until hardened.
