Cinnamon Sugar Skulls

By 06/12/2021March 7th, 2024No Comments

I love to collect Halloween molds…skulls, brains, jack-o-lanterns, body parts you name it…I have it. They’re invaluable in their creative uses. Silicone molds obviously are the most versatile because you can bake and freeze in them. Plastic molds are usually meant for chocolate or candy making…which is great if you’re good at working with chocolate. I am not one of those people. So, as the owner of many plastic molds, I had to think outside the ‘chocolate box’ to come up with fun ways to use these great tools. A few ways, I’ve used plastic molds was to make creepy cake pops in my Rat King Cakes and to make teeth out of soft goat cheese in my Sweet Tooth Bites.  And here, I’ve used them to make these festive skull-shaped cinnamon sugar cubes. Add them to coffee or tea and to sweeten up oatmeal for an extra special Halloween breakfast. They’re so easy to make that they’d make a great hostess gift to bring to all your Halloween gatherings. Bundle them up in cute packaging along with gourmet coffee and a Barnes and Noble gift card for the perfect gift for any fall loving ghoul. Enjoy!
