Wild Orange Cookie-Brownies
These are a family favorite that I make throughout the year but near Halloween I change things up a bit to add a Halloween twist. To make these tasty treats:
1 bag Ghiradelli Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 bag Hershey Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
doTERRA Wild Orange
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix each bag separately.
Start with the brownie mix. Mix ingredients per package instructions and add in 4-6 drops doTERRA Wild Orange essential oil and mix well. Pour into prepared 13×9 pan.
Then mix the cookie bag and drop by tablespoon over the brownie mix.
For Halloween I add in colored sprinkles or candied eyes to “float” on top.
Bake for approximately 40 min until toothpick comes out clean.
Old Fashioned Popcorn Balls
My great-grandmother Ginny always made popcorn balls for Halloween. When we went to her house trick-or-treating it was popcorn balls and pennies that filled our bags. There are many combinations that can be made to suit preferences in flavor to make them salty, sweet or savory. You can also add candies and other color to the popcorn balls. Wrapping them in pretty bags is also a great way to hand these out to your favorite trick-or-treaters.
1 stick unsalted butter
1 bag mini marshmallows
6 cups popcorn popped
3 drops doTERRA Cinnamon, Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, Peppermint (your choice!)
Pop 5 cups of popcorn and set aside.
Prepare a sheet pan with wax paper and set aside.
Melt butter and marshmallows until smooth.
Remove from heat and add in doTERRA essential oil flavor of your choice.
Let cool slightly and then add in poporn, mixing well. Add in candies. (adding in popcorn while it’s hot will melt your popcorn and candies while also making it hard to form the balls) You can also add in the candies after the balls are formed if you want them just on the outside for presentation.
Form balls the size of your palm and place on wax paper to dry. Wrap or keep in closed container.
