Couldn't make it to L.A. for the final Twilight premiere tonight? Don't fret: Now you can celebrate your fave films without even leaving your kitchen.
In fact, these Breaking Dawn Part 2 baked goods are so delish, you'll have your own gang of Twihards camped out in your kitchen before the buzzer even goes off on the oven.
The first recipe is for one we like to call "Cullen Cupcakes." This super-easy vampire treat is the perfect complement to any Twilight party.
The first thing you need is a batch of red velvet cupcakes. Of course, you always have the option of just going out and buying yourself some (always a good backup plan for those of us who are culinary-challenged!), but for anyone who wants to go the homemade route, here's a handy little recipe from McCormick.com.
Now, to make ‘em Twilight-themed, all you have to do is add a little vampire bite to the top. Homemaker's Habitat gives us two different options: cherry pie filling or food coloring. If you're new to this whole baking thing, we suggest going with the cherry pie filling as food coloring can be a little tricky to work with. Whichever way you choose to go, just make two little indentations on top of the cupcake, inject whichever bloody delight you've chosen and voilà!—you've made Cullen Cupcakes.
For those of you who are feeling really confident in your culinary skills, we have another Twilight recipe that is a bit more challenging, but the end result is definitely worth the extra work. These awesome cookies come to us courtesy of Not Your Momma's Cookie and are an absolute must-have for any die-hard Twihard.
It starts out easy enough—just make (or buy, we won't tell!) some simple sugar cookies. Here is a recipe for your convenience from Brown Eyed Baker.
Now, here is where it gets tricky—you need to pipe a checkerboard on top of the cookie—which, as it turns out, is a simultaneous test of both one's precision and patience!
If you got through that, you've already hit the home stretch. All you need to do at this point is attach the little chocolate chess pieces (they can be made using molds like these) and your Twilight cookies are good to go!
