Our next “Countdown to Halloween: Frightfully Fun Family Movie Night” present…”Shrek Thrilling Tales”. Our treats are ogre boogers on a stick! Haha Pretzels with a marshmallow, dipped in homemade caramel and green chocolate. It is not only so amazingly delicious, but it tastes even better because we’re on the way to Disneyland with friends for three days!! Woohoo!!
So easy and shockingly…REALLY YUMMY! Put little marshmallows on the end of each pretzel stick. Dip the marshmallow carefully in homemade caramel recipe and let harden and cool on parchment or wax paper. Next, melt the Vibrant Green Candy Melts pictured here (I just melted them in the microwave) and dip the caramel/marshmallow/pretzel sticks in there and put back down to cool. That is all. Easy right? Kids just love the disgusting name and couldn’t stop saying how good they were AND couldn’t stop laughing, of course, and they said they were eating ogre boogers bahahaha! We are keepin’ it classy here LOL!
Really Easy Caramel Recipe withOUT using a candy thermometer:
1½ sticks butter
½ cup sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
½ teaspoon vanilla (add at the very end before removing from heat)
In a medium saucepan, add butter and sugar and stir over medium heat until melted. Stir in corn syrup and condensed milk. Bring to a boil and then decrease to medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until mixture achieves deep golden color, stirring constantly. (*For lower altitudes, medium heat simmer time may need to be reduced 2-3 minutes, so watch carefully for coloring!) Don’t forget….Use only wooden spoon to stir OR heat-resistant spoon! Don’t let caramel boil over…it will be messy and possibly a little bit of a kitchen fire if you have a gas stove. I’m not going to tell you how I know that 😉
