Monster Eye Lollipops

homemade lollipops I’ve never made hard candy before. To be honest, the idea of making any recipe that requires using a candy thermometer has scared me in the past. But, this Halloween I thought it was the perfect time to put my fears aside and give it a try. I’ve always wanted to make homemade lollipops so I decided to start there. After doing a bit of research, I discovered that the ingredients needed are super minimal. Like, two. TWO. That’s simple enough for me! The base of my lollipop recipe requires only two things; sugar and corn syrup. I added in food coloring and candy eyeballs (for the spook factor). I used Sugar In The Raw Organic White® which is unbleached and true to its natural color (like the original Sugar In The Raw®), but its finer crystals make it perfect for cooking and baking because it blends easily into any recipe. This was key for making our green lollipops!

Halloween appetizers

You know what gets me excited? When you find new ways to put a twist on a favorite recipe. And today folks, we have just that! I was recently asked by Pepperidge Farm to come up with a fun Halloween appetizer that incorporates Puff Pastry Cups and I was up for the mission.

My go-to spinach and cheese dip was the perfect compliment to the flaky and light puff pastry cups. To spook them up I topped them with sliced olives, transforming them into spooky Goblin Eyes — EEEK!

Super simple to make, healthy and cute!
