Halloween treats: Muddy Buddies!

Muddy Buddies are one of those treats that can be made for any occasion. It is simple, sweet, and can be dressed up!

This fun muddy buddies recipe was discovered by A Pumpkin and  a Princess. It features some incredible Halloween treats that will wow at your next spooky party, or can be handed out as treats at a party or for an after sports Halloween treat!

You do not have to be super impressive in the kitchen, or even incredibly crafty to create this sweet treat. That may be why it is one of my favorites for this time of year. We aren’t all super great at being that Pinterest mom, lets face it — some of us are just Prime moms. This recipe is a no-fail recipe. Thanks to A Pumpkin and  a Princess you can look like you have it all together even when you are just barely holding on this Halloween.

Be sure to check out A Pumpkin and  a Princess for some other great and simple ideas for everyday recipes and crafts while you are getting the low-down on how to create this munchies masterpiece.

Halloween Snacks: Pizza Skulls!!

Does your little one have a Halloween party every year? Do you attend a harvest festival or Fall Festival? Or do you just like to enjoy a spooky meal on Halloween? Then these Pizza Skulls are something you want to check out!

Plain Chicken is a fun foodie blog that is stepping up our spooky game this Halloween snack season. My go-to for Halloween dinner is usually Mummies in a blanket, or Spooky Spaghetti. But after checking out this fun recipe I am ready to shake-it-up this year. One major benefit to trying this new recipe is that I can use pizza dough that is gluten free since we have discovered a gluten allergy in our household.

The fun of this recipe is that you can switch it up or add in whatever you want. Are you out of pepperoni? Try using sausage and mushrooms. Want to make it Hawaiian style? Add in Ham and Pineapple. Just like your pizza you can customize it with your favorite toppings.

The skull mold is available at Amazon now. you could even check out these alternatives if you want a different mold.

Let’s have a Monster Bash!!

Halloween is for fun, fright, and food! I love getting to bake and create amazing meals, snacks, and treats to spook and delight my family. This year we are planning a Halloween Monster Bash to celebrate Halloween and my youngest’s birthday (his birthday actually falls the week after Halloween but he ADORES Halloween so we celebrate then!) I get the privilege of creating an incredible birthday cake that is Halloween themed. We are planning a Monster Bash so I want to continue with the monster theme and create a monster cake.

I scoured Pinterest for incredible ideas and came up with this fun and simple design from The Cake Blog. This Monster design features frightening monster eyes on a plain white iced cake. It is so simple, and so perfect I cannot wait to bake it. My son was so excited he wanted me to do a test bake just so he could eat it twice! We didn’t do that, but we did decide that we would put a fun gel in the center of the cake to make it more ghoulish and monster-like. We plan to make white cake with that we have died green, with lemon jelly as the filling. My son thinks it will be perfect for his party.

The fun of cakes is how much you can change and still achieve the same aesthetic. While we are changing the inside of the cake to fit our purpose the outer part of the cake will remain the same as The Cake Blog’s original vision.
