This year Halloween fell on a Friday. As soon as the girls realized this they requested a party and sleepover. We all got into the spirit with me preparing the food, Chris decorating, and the girls having a good time with their friends, dressing up in costumes, and of course, trick-or-treating.
Spread dough out into a large pan, top with pizza sauce and pepperonis. Using mozzarella cheese slices and a ghost cookie cutter, cut out ghost shapes and top the pizza.
Note: I took this picture before I baked it which was a good thing. Unfortunately, the ghosts all melted together during the baking process. During the assembly, I was concerned there wouldn’t be enough cheese so I added more. Next time, less ghosts.
Peel cuties & add sliced celery sticks as the stem of the pumpkin.
- 4 cups Green Apple Kool-Aid (prepared according to package instruction)
- 3 cups pineapple juice
- 2 cups white grape juice
- 9 drops green food coloring
- 2 drops yellow food coloring
Mix together all ingredients and serve in desired container. Note: all of the kids commented they liked this. The person who liked it most? The hubby. *Smile*
CAKE EYEBALLS & CAKE POP CRITTERS
The girls and I had so much fun making these last weekend. They hung out in the freezer until the night of the party.
- 1 box of cake mix
- 1 container of frosting
- candy melts
- blue, black, or brown M&M’s
- gel icing
- candy eyes & bones
- lollipop sticks
Make and bake cake according to package instructions for a 9×13 pan. Once cooled completely, remove cake and crumble in a large bowl. Mix in the frosting thoroughly. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out and form into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Place in freezer until frozen.
Once the balls are frozen, stick the lollipop sticks in the middle of each ball. Melt candy melts until smooth. Working quickly, submerge each cake pop into the candy coating and return to the same parchment lined baking sheet. Once finished, carefully remove the lollipop sticks. Reheat the candy melt, if needed and add a small amount to the M side of the M&M and place on the hole of the cake ball. Using the red gel icing, make squiggly lines to get the desired blood shot eyes. For the cake pop critters, let your kids go to town & be creative.
- 2 packages ready to eat breakfast sausage links
- 2 cans of crescent rolls
Roll out the crescent rolls, keeping them in rectangles instead of the triangles. Using a pizza cutter, slice each rectangle lengthwise 10 times. Using 1-2 strips of crescent roll, wrap around the sausage to create the mummy.
In the morning, I made these and served them with scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and juice.
Until next year, when Halloween is on a Saturday. I’m thinking there might be another party in the books.
