If I could pick a holiday to skip, Halloween might be it. I do not enjoy all the freaky masks, horror movies (who even likes those!) and fighting my kids about not eating the 100 piece of candy they just got in one sitting. But what I do like is the fun, kiddish part of Halloween and all the creative ideas for food.
My mother-in-law's favorite holiday happens to be Halloween and she does a party every year full of games, music, fun food and prizes. The kids love it and have been asking every day when her party is. And this is the part of Halloween I do like...the fun food!
Every halloween eve, we make a feast of fun and interesting foods that we give different names to....like bones, dipped in blood (breadsticks and marinara), Monster salad or graveyard jello, monster eyes (meatballs), spiderweb munch, Chocolate mousse in witch hats, and then the yummy desserts like chocolate pretzel rings, candy corn almond bark, and candy corn cupcakes, homemade oreos with orange frosting or Halloween sprinkles.
Though I love the desserts, it seems to be a bit much sometimes, so when I found these I knew they would be a good balance with all the treats we make. They are super simple to throw together and taste yummy too. My kids gave this two thumbs up! Happy Halloween Baking!!
