This Halloween treat was inspired by foodie friend Debra who brought Dracula's Dentures to my attention. I love the original idea so much but went off the foodie map trying to come up with an easier and faster way to make these treats in my kitchen.
I decided to use store-bought cookies instead and I loved the idea of the dentures being ice cream sandwiches.
I put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in between two cookies.
I pushed in some of the ice cream back into the cookie and put in the freezer to set.
I wedged in the mini marshmallows/teeth so there were six across. I put the dentures back into the freezer.
I got some almond slivers that looked like fangs and my red decorating gel.
The red gel (unlike the black gel) worked perfectly! Totally making them look blood-tinged.
I added the fangs but wow, the ice cream just would not stop melting. I kept trying to clean it up but in the end I gave up and let it be a part of the Halloween effect.
These dentures are absolutely perfect for your rabid vampire! And incredibly tasty too. I made these in no time but must admit, the frothing was a bit annoying. However, I still prefer having ice cream stuffed cookies over icing-stuffed.
Definitely more for the silly Halloween foodie party!
