Fall is here AND it’s finally October! With cooler temperatures, crisp air, spooky decor all around, this household is in full swing for Halloween. Costumes are chosen, the jack-o-lanterns are carved, and we are counting down to our trip to Hershey, PA, to enjoy Hersheypark in the Dark! To celebrate this upcoming event and to get everyone in a spooktacular sweet mood, we made yummy Spooky S’more Clusters, perfect for Halloween occasions.
As an ambassador in the Sweetest Moms program, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts gifted my family the “Fun Stuff with HERSHEY’S” book! Flipping through, we saw so many great recipes and food inspired ideas. Now one thing we love about fall are the bonfires. And what goes with bonfires? Making s’mores! Now unfortunately for us, a fire pit isn’t always readily available. Luckily this book offered directions on how to make “Easy S’more Clusters,” no bonfire needed. Inspired by that idea, we decided to take the clusters one step further, and add a spooky twist!
Check out the easy tutorial below for Spooky S’more Clusters…
6 (1.55 oz. each) HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars
2 cups of miniature marshmallows
8 graham crackers
Sprinkles (orange sugar or Halloween themed)
First gather all the ingredients listed above. Break the chocolate bars into pieces, and coarsely chop the graham crackers into smaller bits.
Next, take the chocolate bar pieces and place them in a medium to large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes on MEDIUM, or until chocolate is melted when you stir the mixture.
Once the chocolate is melted, gently stir in the marshmallows and chopped graham cracker bits. Stir them until they are well coated with the melted chocolate. Carefully place spoonfuls into cupcake paper cups or miniature paper muffin cups in a tin. Personally I like to use Halloween themed paper cups!
Once you have filled the paper cups, add your Halloween themed sprinkles. I used basic orange sugar sprinkles in this tutorial. Then add on your candy eyes. You can add one, two, three, or more to each cluster!
Place your tin in the refrigerator. Cool the clusters until they are firm. Then enjoy the spooky treats!
While most of the S’more Clusters we made the other day were “monsters,” we did make a few with creepy crawlers! Going through my pantry I found these cool “bug” sprinkles to use on a few of the treats.
But whether you use spooky candy eyes, or creepy crawling sprinkles… these Spooky S’more Clusters will taste delicious! Which means, they are sure to put a smile on the face of any Halloween (and chocolate!) fan.
Hersheypark in the Dark
Don’t forget… From October 13 to the 29, on Fridays through Sundays, Hersheypark Amusement Park is transformed into the Hersheypark In The Dark Halloween attraction, offering more than 50 rides and attractions. ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park opens after dark for guests to observe the nighttime activities of more than 200 animals (as they enjoy pumpkin treats) with Creatures Of The Night. Plus there will be 13 candy locations in Hershey’s Trick-or-Treat Trail, including Treatville trick-or-treat trail in Hersheypark and ZooAmerica, and Hershey Hollow in Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction.
