Ingredients for 8 people
3 pie doughs
2 egg yolks
Red, yellow, & orange hard candies
Werther's Original ® chewy caramels
Brain gummy candies
1 salad bowl
1 pastry brush
1 small salad bowl
1 rolling pin
Step 1/5Press the back of the plastic spider several times into one of the pie doughs to make a pattern. Lay the dough over the large upside-down salad bowl. Brush with egg yolk and bake for 20 minutes at 350 °F. Place the large salad bowl upside down on top of a second pie dough and cut around it. Cut out a jack-o'-lantern face from the central disc.
Step 2/5Place the large bowl upside down on the 3rd pie dough and cut around it. Place the small bowl upside down in the middle of the central disc and cut around it. Collect the large ring and center disk of the 3rd dough and the large ring and face scraps of the 2nd dough and roll into a ball for later. Fill the center of the dough ring and the jack-o'-lantern face holes with hard candy, trimming them if necessary.
Step 3/5Form 4 balls with the remaining dough, flatten them and fill with apricot jam. Roll them back into balls and mark with grooves to make mini pumpkins. Brush all the dough with egg yolks and bake for 10 minutes at 350 °F. Allow the melted candies to cool to form windows.
Step 4/5Turn the dough bowl over and fill it halfway with lollipops and Werther's Original ® chewy caramels. Place the ring with the hard candy window on top. Add the candy laces and brain gummies, plastic spiders, and cover with the jack-o'-lantern face.
Step 5/5Eat the first layer of candy and then break the disc of melted candy with the rolling pin to reach the others. When the bowl is empty, place a candle in it and rest the jack-o'-lantern face for a spooky atmosphere.
