Halloween Treats

Hey readers!

Sorry for the break from writing we went to visit family in Tulsa and then things were crazy when we got back. Getting back into the swing of work was hard so I would come home exhausted so I wasn’t in the thinking mood on what to write about and then I got sick and my dog got sick so we were both recovering from that! However, I did have a Halloween party when we got back and I made some creative treats for the party so I wanted to go ahead and post about them so that I get to show them off again :-).

First off Hubby of course has to be “that house” for Halloween so here is what the kids got to choose from! I would say they were pretty lucky. However, did anyone else notice that there weren’t as many kids this year as last year?!

The Candy Basket

For the party the first treat I decided to make was a rice krispy treat spider! I found it on Pinterest and decided that I just had to make it! I thought it came out real well! I used candy corn for the fangs and red jelly beans for the red eyes.

My moose brother (aka best friend) had a little Halloween party treat book and we found the cute carrot pumpkin. I just got some baby carrots and put them on a plate with two little glasses filled with ranch as the eyes and then used sliced cucumbers for the mouth and nose. Then I used celery and a green bean as the top of the pumpkin and a little celery thrown in the ranch as the eyes.

Then of course I had to make my popcorn monster hands. So just had to pop a lot of popcorn and put candy corn in the fingers of the gloves like nails and filled the rest with popcorn to make monster hands. I used to make these for Halloween when I was younger.

I also found a cute idea of doing like “finger” sandwiches but I put a twist on it and made them peanut butter and jelly and used the red jelly on the ends of the “fingers” so it looks like they were cut off. Then used almonds on the tips like the fingernails, which attached with peanut butter so that it would kind of glue it on there.

Last but not least what would my party be without me making some cupcakes. I decided to make some chocolate mini cupcakes with vanilla icing that I food colored to be red and used some skull sprinkles on them with my signature rose icing. I also had to make my traditional caramel apple cupcakes. I used a cinnamon muffin mix and chopped up a green able to go in the batter and then I put caramel on top. Then I put some black icing on the top and drag a toothpick through it to make it a spiderweb.

I found a lot of fun decorations for the table at the dollar store and I think the layout turned out real well :).

Hope you all enjoyed! I had fun at the party and making everything for it! It took us forever to find costumes but I finally found us some we were Greek Goddess and a Warrior! Have a great evening!
