Spooky Homemade Horse Treat Decorating:
Horse Treat Decorating Ingredients
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons of water
- green food coloring
Spooky Homemade Horse Treat Decorating Instructions:
Mix powdered sugar with water. The consistency should be glaze-like, so it runs over to cover the entirety when you pour it over the treats.
Add green food coloring to the icing to the desired color. Pro Tip: Adding a bit of black to the green will give a more realistic witchy color.
Glaze the treats by adding the icing to a sandwich bag, nipping off one of the corners, and drizzling it over the goodies. The icing should spread to cover the entire “finger.”
Place almonds (fingernails) on the end of the fingers while the icing is still wet.
Once the icing is surface dry, dip a tiny paintbrush into your green food coloring and draw wrinkles on the finger knuckles and along the top and bottom of the finger.
Let the goodies sit to dry. The thickness of your icing glaze will affect the dry time but anticipate an hour.
Whallah! You’ve made spooktacularly horrifying witch-finger Halloween barn party horse treats!
