How To Make Glow In The Dark Icing

As Halloween sneaks up around the corner, the pumpkins, decorations and haunted houses start popping up everywhere! So to get in the spirit, why not add some Halloween fun into your baking. With a few simple kitchen cupboard ingredients, you can create your very own glow in the dark cupcake icing. Not only will it add a special twist to your Halloween dessert, the glow off the frosting will surprise guests of all ages! Check out the instructions below to create your very own glow in the dark icing:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Cup Of Butter
  • 4-5 Cups Of Icing Sugar
  • 1 Cup And 4-5 Tablespoons Of Tonic Water
  • 1.5 Tablespoon Of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Box Of Coloured Jello
  • 1 Cup Of Boiling Water

Instructions:

  1. Start by creating your basic frosting. Beat the butter until smooth, add powdered sugar and tonic water alternating as you add it. Add vanilla and beat till smooth.
  2. Ice your cupcakes however you prefer and pop them in the freezer. They should be in there long enough for the icing to harden.
  3. Next, boil 1 cup of water and add Jello. Stir until combined, about 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup of tonic water, mix and remove from heat. Place the mixture into a second bowl and keep that bowl on ice to make the Jello as cool as possible. Once the Jello is cool to the touch but not firm, give it a quick stir and remove it from the ice.
  4. Once removed, it’s time to dip the cupcakes. Remove them from the freezer, dip one at a time and replace them back in the freezer once they have been dipped. The more you repeat this process, the more they will glow! Serve once the glow has dried and display them under a black light for an even better glow!

Speaking of toppings, I like the traditional strawberries and whipped cream but there are so many other toppings you can try. Enjoy!

Who here loves caramel?! It’s one of my favorite things to eat and especially around this time of the year. I find that these Salted Caramels also make for perfect gifts. You could make a bunch and put some in a tin (Dollar Tree normally has some awesome ones) and gift them.

  9. Let the sugar syrup come to a boil without stirring.

  11. Turn off the heat and slowly add the warm cream and butter mixture a little at a time while gently whisking (will bubble violently). 5
  12. Turn burner back on to medium-high.
  13. Let the caramel come to a boil and reach 240 without stirring.
  14. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla.
  15. Pour into the prepared pan.
  16. Cool 20 to 30 minutes then scatter the salt over the caramel.

  • 6 Boiled Medium Eggs
  • 2 Carrots
  • Peppercorns
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Green onion stems 2

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Slice off a small section from top and bottom of each egg to allow them to stand and stack neatly. 3
  2. If you are going to serve soon, you can use pretzel sticks to join each piece and they will be completely edible. If they need to sit for a while, the pretzels will become to soggy, so you will have to use wooden skewers.
  3. Even if you are using pretzels, you will need to pierce the egg and carrot before pushing pretzels through.
  4. Push a pretzel stick down into large egg to make body and place smaller egg on top. 4
  5. Peel carrots.
  6. Slice the thick end of carrot into six 1/8″ slices to use as hat brims.
  7. Slice middle of carrot (or smaller carrot) into six 3/4-1″ slices for top of hat.
  8. Use skewer to “pre-drill” hole in carrots to allow pretzel to connect them with remainder of stick extending below brim.
  9. Push assembled hat down onto head. 5
  10. Take the small end of a carrot (about 1/2″) and cut lengthwise into six sections to use as noses.
  11. Using a toothpick, pierce “face” egg in the middle and insert the nose.
  12. Pierce for the two eyes and four spots to make a mouth and press in peppercorns. 6
  13. Pierce the “body” egg three spots to make buttons and press in peppercorns.
  14. Break a pretzel in half and insert a piece in each side of the body to make arms.
  15. You can optionally use green onion stems to make a hat band and scarf.
  16. Split the green tube and open it up.
  17. Gently scrape the blade along the inside of the opened stem to remove stiffness.
  18. Trim the softened piece to make scarf or hatband and wrap in place.

I use Ranch for a lot of recipes and I really like using the powder Hidden Valley mix for many Crock Pot recipes. In this next recipe, I am making copycat Hidden Valley Mix (Ranch) and I like it more than the store bought kind. If you’ve ever read the ingredients in these packets, you might be a little scared as there are a lot of random ingredients. That’s why I like making my own. ;-) When recipe calls for 1 packet of mix, use 2 tbsp of this instead. Enjoy!
