I had to get some cupcakes together quickly for my daughters Halloween class costume party, another Mom got sick and couldn’t do the cupcakes and I immediately volunteered because I had seen this idea the night before. I got my pre-made cupcakes from the bakery at HEB, I just asked that they be left bare so I could ice them at home. These cupcakes are covered in marshmallow “webbing” that is made by melting down mini marshmallows and using your fingers to stretch the gooey mixture over a HERSHEY’S Kiss topped chocolate frosted cupcake. The Kiss on top gives the shape of the frosting a somewhat sinister element with it’s delicious chocolate point. The kids went wild over them and my daughter’s teacher could not stop thanking me because the Halloween cupcakes looked so amazing.
Meringues are so versatile, the kids and I wanted to make some little ghosts for Halloween so we studied up on it. Creating little ghost shapes is incredibly easy and each one will have its own unique shape making them even more fun! If you don’t have an icing bag with frosting tips, try using a large ZipLock bag and simply cut off the tip. This is also a great way for young kids to create Ghost Meringues, and they are cute as heck.
Our Halloween costume party in a few weeks and we’ve invited our closest friends for a full day of Halloween fun and games, pumpkin decorating, and Halloween treats. This Halloween candy bark will definitely be among our party food table. It’s so easy to make and you can add just about anything you’d like to it. Bark candy is always my go-to blank canvas to add whatever holiday theme I need to. For this Halloween bark recipe I used Halloween OREOS (love the orange filling), sprinkles, pretzels to add a bit of salt to cut down the sweetness, mini edible eyes, and candy down in this fun orange, yellow and purple color. I like to use Ghirardelli melting chocolate because of the flavor and how easy it melts. The Ghirardelli melting wafers are smooth and easy to pour. For this recipe, you can make a small batch using one bag or fill a large baking sheet with two bags of chocolate wafers.
This Halloween spaghetti is so cute for your get together that magical night of December 31st. This is my favorite Halloween recipe and It is perfect for Halloween parties and trust me, all your guest are going to love it as much as we do! Take a look at the step by step method, its basically the same pasta recipe you are probably used to, with black food coloring that will not stain your teeth but will look very festive.
These Halloween marshmallow pops are perfect for roasting or eating plain. They lend themselves perfectly to attaching all sorts of delicious candy, making this an easy treat to whip up for your Halloween party. I love Roasting anyway because when it comes to s’mores, of the trifecta, marshmallows are the best part as far as I’m concerned. Especially with just a little char on the outside. These are visually a great addition to your holiday table whether anyone eats them or not.
This is the perfect Halloween party treat to pull off in a pinch. I had a deadline at work and completely forgot about my daughters Halloween party at school. I ran to HEB and got some Oreos and the kids helped me scrape the insides, we whipped some orange food color in and replaced the center filling then decorated with eyes and bat wings we cut out of construction paper. The day was saved and they looked fabulous.
Bark candy is one of the easiest things to make, you can melt your chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler and cool the layers as you go. Any holiday theme can be incorporated into bark because it is like a blank canvas it can reflect any holiday theme you choose. I wanted to give something homemade to my trick or treaters, so I drizzled white melted chocolate bark in ghost shapes all over my freshly made bark trays. The children went wild, we had such a good time.
These Meatball Mummies are a fun, easy, and delicious Halloween finger food idea. They are store-bought meatballs, wrapped in crescent down, and topped with marinara and olives. They are an excellent American appetizer, that only take about 30 minutes in total cooking time. They will look really spooky at your Halloween party and make an excellent alternative to Pizza.
I love my stuffed pepper recipe, we have these at least once every couple of weeks, so I decided to change them up to surprise the kids for Halloween. I thought of the idea of making little jack-o-lanterns out of the peppers when I saw some of the orange peppers on sale. It only takes a few extra minutes and it makes the stuffed peppers extra special. You can either make the slow cooker chicken as a meal one day (for tacos, burritos, taco salads etc.) and make extra to have these peppers later on, or you can make the chicken and rice just for the stuffed peppers. I slow cooked them in my crockpot and my kids were so amazed, they were so excited we took lots of photos.
My daughter had this fantastic idea to have an all witch Halloween party, so we wanted an appetizer that was very witchy to get us in the mood. These easy witch’s broomstick snacks are sure to be a big hit at any Halloween Party. The snacks are simple to assemble and when stood up fill a nice amount of space on a Halloween party buffet layout. I especially like that you can keep extras of the 3 ingredients needed and whip some more witch’s broomsticks together in the bat of a newts eye. As all good hosts know, being prepared is the most essential part of throwing a party after all.
