Having a mom who is one of the food editors for EatSavvy does have its privileges and in my children’s eyes being a “tester” is the top one. One of the recipes we chose to include in this month’s Eat Savvy edition was a Halloween-themed treat, Creepy Chocolate Clusters.
What better place to test recipes than in our own Savvy Test Kitchens with our own families. This is one of the fun parts of my job.
All my chocolate monsters needed to hear was “chocolate” and they were ready and willing to assist. Like Rice Krispie squares, this is a very quick and easy, no-bake treat—perfect for an impromptu get-together with friends, party snack, or when you’re in need of a quick chocolate fix. Start to finish, it took 25 minutes.
Measuring butter and corn syrup is easy enough for my six year old, but I left the cereal pouring to the nine year old. Plopping spoonfuls of glop is always a big hit, whether it’s muffin batter, meat balls or Creepy Chocolate Clusters. You may need to tidy up the clusters a little before they harden.
Did I mention how much fun you’ll have sweeping up the black and orange Halloween sprinkles?
What do your kids like to help you make in the kitchen?
