Save Money By Making Your Own Halloween Treats Using An Instant Pot
It’s the season of ghosts, goblins, and gobbling up dishes and drinks that bring out the best of fall’s flavors. But who wants to spend time hovering over the stove when the days are bright, the air is crisp, and Halloween is coming? Haul your instant pot out of the kitchen cabinet where you store infrequently used items and you’ll find you can whip up these sweet seasonal treats in no time at all.
1. One-Trick Chili
There’s no better time for chili than when there’s a chill in the air. Go old school using ground beef and kidney beans or opt for a healthier version made with turkey and squash.
2. Oreo Pops
Instant joy for the kids looking to get a special treat before they head out the door to score their own private candy collection. Use the instant pot to melt either milk or dark chocolate then dip Oreos on lollipop sticks.
3. Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread
An on-so-fragrant version of apple cinnamon rolls that are the epitome of gooey goodness. So pull yourself away from the oven and choose to make this bread in your instant pot instead.
4. Hot Cocoa
Just what trick-or-treaters need: more chocolate. You can use an instant pot to stir up creamy cocoa with just the right amount of sugar or flavor add-ins you prefer.
5. Apple Crisp
This dessert takes just eight minutes to cook in an instant pot — how bout them apples? Great with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, yogurt, or fresh whipped cream.
6. Pumpkin Pudding
The proof, so they say, is in the pudding, and pumpkin pudding always proves to be a crowd-pleaser. An elegant dessert that’s more like a cake than a pudding, this offering isn’t especially sweet, making it a perfect choice for trick-or-treaters heading out get fistfuls of candy.
7. Pumpkin Bundt Cake
Your old bundt cake pan might never see the light of day again. Forget the greasing, the flouring, the banging out air bubbles. An instant pot lets you whip out this classic dessert in no time flat.
8. Hot Apple Cider
Sip, sip, hooray! You can use your instant pot to heat up store-bought apple cider or make your own fresh apple cider for a lip-smacking treat.
