Trick or treat? Smell my feet. Give me something good to eat. If you don’t, I don’t care. I have a whole tray of mini pumpkin cupcakes waiting over there. Enough said. Here is the recipe.
- 24 mini cupcakes
- 1 container of vanilla frosting
- Red food coloring
- Yellow food coloring
- 1 pouch of Better Crocker Decorating Cookie Icing, Chocolate
- Combine the vanilla frosting, red food coloring and yellow food coloring
- Keep adding additional food coloring and mix it until you get your desired shade of orange
- Frost all cupcakes with a thin layer of orange frosting
- Take the cookie icing and draw jack o’lantern faces on the cupcakes
- Let the icing sit for an hour and then serve
Since the cupcakes are so small it’s ok to have two or three!
Since I love guacamole, I couldn’t resist adding this masterpiece to the menu. All you need are a few simple ingredients and this puking pumpkin could be making an appearance at your next Halloween party as well.
- 1 small pumpkin
- 1 tub of guacamole (to keep things really simple you can just buy already made guacamole from the store)
- Take a sharp knife and cut a jack o’lantern face of your choice on the pumpkin
- Ensure that you leave a large opening for the mouth
- Put the pumpkin on plate and dish out the guacamole making sure a little is placed right at the bottom of the mouth opening
- Serve and watch the smiles come rolling in
And if there are any doctor’s at the party you can play a comedian like my husband and keep telling them, “Help! Help! This pumpkin looks terribly sick!”
Halloween isn’t all about tricks and sweets. It’s also about pumpkins. Who can resist these adorable little clementine jack o’lanterns? Even better, they are a treat to make.
- 15 clementines
- 1 Sharpie marker
- Draw fun jack o’lantern faces on your clementines and put them in a bowl
That’s it! No tricks involved for these adorable little treats!
I decided to have a Halloween themed party for my little pumpkin’s first birthday, so will be filling up the blog with all of the fun decorations and recipes this week. Seriously, who doesn’t serve an eyeball cake for their little girl’s first birthday party?
- 1 yellow cake
- 2 containers of vanilla frosting
- 1 box of Oreos
- 1 bag of mini Oreos
- 8 Junior Mints
- 8 brown M&Ms
- 10 candy eyes
- Cover the cake with vanilla frosting
- Split 8 regular Oreos in half and put a Junior Mint in the middle of the Oreo
- Split 8 mini Oreos in half and put a brown M&M in the middle of the Oreo
- Randomly add the Oreos on the cake alternating sizes and then add on the candy eyeballs to fill up the rest of the space
- A second option is to pair the Oreos and candy eyeballs up so that it looks like pairs of eyes all over the cake
With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to bring out the treats. These chocolate covered mummy pretzels are anything but scary to make.
- 15 pretzel rods
- Bag of white melting chocolate (10 oz)
- 30 candy eyes
- 1 tube of Betty Crocker white decorating icing
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds
- Remove the chocolate and stir it
- Continue to put it in the microwave for 15 second increments and stirring afterwards until melted
- Dip the top half of the pretzel rods in the chocolate and lay it on a piece of wax paper to dry
- If you want to avoid having a flat backside you can have them dry in a cup instead with the wet part sticking out
- Immediately place the candy eyes on the top center area of the melted chocolate as seen in the picture
- Let it dry and then drizzle on lines of the white decorating icing
- Let entire pretzel dry before moving them
Make sure to open your mouth wide and gobble up all the mummies!
