IMG_0854.JPGWe love to get into the Halloween spirit. But we also love an easy simple dinner the night of Halloween. Well this year we have found another spectacularly spooky dinner idea with very little fuss. Now we can concentrate on getting ready for our ghoulish night trick-or-treating and making last minute changes or touch-ups on our costumes and decor. We have made mummy hotdogs and spooky pizzas in the past, so we wanted something new. Well we sure found it. This year we will be making Spooky Ghost Chili. This is perfect for us since we love chili, it is simple to make, and we can make it in a hurry. The little added Halloween charm makes it a fun and fantastic meal for our little ones, and us, on this fun Halloween night.

We found this Spooky Ghost Chili at Little Nummies. Little Nummies was created by mommy of three Kellie. Kellie loves to make fun and fantastic meals for her three little ones, and has tons of amazing ideas to make any meal fun! We especially love her Spooky Ghost Chili. It is quick, simple, and so much fun. Sometimes we expect fun little meals to be too difficult, time consuming, or expensive. Kellie shows us it doesn’t have to be with her Spooky Ghost Chili. You can also check out some of Kellie’s other fun meal ideas and try them at home. Everyone will love them!

What You Will Need:

Chili (need a new chili recipe? Try one of these)
Mozzarella Cheese or Jack Cheese (just make sure it’s white!)

Now just head on over to Little Nummies for some instructions on how to make some spooky little ghosts for your chili, serve, and enjoy! We are so excited to try this at home, we hope you and your family have a great Halloween!

IMG_0834.JPGHalloween is a fun and sweet holiday. It’s all about laughter, fun, make believe, and sweet treats. We don’t eat a lot of sweet treats in our house so Halloween is a special event where we get to have some great cookies, cakes, and candy that we usually don’t allow our children. We don’t quite let them go hog wild, but when we attend a party they are allowed to sample a little of everything, we just make sure to eat a good meal before we head out to the party. This year it is our turn to host and we are looking forward to making some delicious sweet treats for all of our friends. I like to find new and unique things to try that our friends have probably never samples before, so I was excited when I ran across this fun new recipe at See Vanessa Craft.

Vanessa is a crafter, baker, blogger, and toddler Mommy. She knows good treats. Her tutorial on Oreo Nutella Witch Hat Cookies almost made me swoon. It requires no baking, just some chocolate spreading, sprinkling, and drying. Simple, straight forward, and delicious! Vanessa knows her way around great crafts and baked goods and if you spend more than five minutes on here page you will find more than a dozen new ideas you can’t wait to try. I had to restrain myself and only pay attention to the tutorial for the cookies otherwise I would have never left the website. If you want to find other great ideas head on over to See Vanessa Craft now.

These cookies are so adorable and sweet it is almost impossible to only use them one time a year, but I am not so sure witch hats will be popular outside of October. So I will try to only make them once, but if they taste as good as I think they will it will be incredibly hard to restrain myself. Combining Oreos and Nutella may just be my personal heaven in a cookie. So let’s check out what we need to get started:

What You Will Need:

Black Chocolate Melts
Orange & Black Nonpareils
Parchment Paper
Floral Foam

Now just head on over to See Vanessa Craft and follow her easy instructions. Her pictures make it a little simpler to follow and soon you will be serving up some sweet witches hats. Just remember to try and eat them in moderation, I will try too!
