Chocolate Cauldrons filled with Snack Pack Pudding and Magical Mix-Ins

I stirred up a witch's brew this Halloween for Collective Bias using Snack Pack Pudding inside Chocolate Cauldrons. My secret potion is filled with fun mix-ins and tastes as magical as it looks.

I whipped up these Chocolate Cauldrons filled with Snack Pack Pudding and Magical Mix-Ins for a group of kids who took time away from playing and relaxing during their fall break to come over and help me decorate for our Halloween party. The kids are really excited about the party and were eager to help, and I was thrilled to have them. so I made them a special treat to thank them.

Pumpkin Pail Cake filled with Halloween Candy

This Pumpkin Pail Cake would have been a great dessert for my pumpkin carving party, but sadly I made it weeks ago, cut it for the pictures, then gave it away.

I sure wish I had time to make another, but the countdown is on. My party is on Saturday, and it looks like we'll be hosting about 90 party guests. I can hear the clock ticking in my head. Do you get that way when you host a big event? 

I'm so excited, that I don't even want to sleep. There are so many things left on my to do list and sadly making a candy filled 3-D Halloween cake is not one of them.

Fun Halloween Food For Kids

Get the kids into the kitchen and have some fun making these Halloween Edible Crafts

For Halloween, I created a few fun food projects that even young kids can make. I taught my friend's children how to make these Breakfast Sandwich Monsters, Oreo Truffle Spiders, Quesadilla Mummies, and Cookies and Cream Witch Hats in one afternoon. They had a blast and really enjoyed eating their treats.

100% Edible Popcorn Bowl Jack-O-Lantern filled with Halloween Popcorn

This Popcorn Bowl Jack-O-Lantern is going to be smack dab in the middle of my dessert table 
this weekend at our Halloween party along with dozens of other sweet treats. 
It is 100% edible, quite large, and really stunning.

I just know my guests are going to flip when they see it. My friends and family love my white chocolate popcorn and I always have lots of it on hand for my parties. This year, instead of serving the popcorn in a plastic bowl, I thought it would be more fun to serve it in one of my edible popcorn bowls

Raisin and Peanut Power Bar Pumpkins

This recipe is brought to you by California Raisins. 
You can feel good about serving these Raisin and Peanut Power Bar Pumpkins to both kids and adults this Halloween. These healthy snacks are dressed up for the holiday and will look and taste just as sweet as your other festive desserts at your party.

I know I don't make healthy treats to share here on my blog very often. I should. I know that. I eat healthy meals and really should make more of an effort to turn those healthy recipes into edible crafts for the holidays more often. 

These pumpkins are made using peanuts, golden California raisins, and carrots.They are just as sweet tasting as most of the desserts I make for the holidays, and are good for you. What's not to love about that?

Spider Infested Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This post is brought to you by California Raisins.
What better time of year than Halloween to serve up some creepy looking 
Spider Infested Oatmeal Raisin Cookies made using plump juicy California Raisins?

Halloween may be the best time to make and serve spider filled cookies, but I can think of other occasions where they would be appropriate too. It would be fun to make them to take along on a camping trip, or to serve at a bug themed birthday party, or to scare someone on April Fool's Day, or to give to a friend who happens to be studying arachnology (the study of spiders.)

Backside Black Cat Cookies

Can you guess what's hiding inside these candy coated Backside Black Cat Cookies?
Look closely, you might just be able to tell which kind of cookies 
I used to make these sweet Halloween Treats.

Did you guess an Oreo Cookie and  Nilla Wafer? You can see them now, right?

The cookies have been dipped in Black Candy Melts, stuck together, ears piped on, and a tail added. So simple and so sweet.

This idea has been lurking in the back of my mind for some time. They are similar to my Chocolate Bunny Silhouettes, which you all loved so much, that it surprised me. Those little treats are one of my most popular projects, so I felt it was about time I try to recreate that magic, and what better way to do that, than with a black cat for Halloween?

Three-Cheese Calzone Pumpkins

I'm working on the menu for our Halloween party, and have been experimenting with new recipes. My favorite so far are these Three Cheese Calzone Pumpkins made with

The box of flatbread mix was just one of the many new products I got to bring home from the International Food Bloggers Conference last month. Although getting enough swag to fill my carry on bag was cool, and spending time with my blogging buddies, even better, the point of attending one of these blogging conferences is to learn new things. Most sessions are all about the business of blogging, and I learned a lot, but one of my favorite sessions was not about business at all, but about throwing great parties.

Pumpkin Spice Jack-O-Lantern Rice Krispie Treat Pops & Giveaway

Our pumpkin carving party is just a few weeks from now and I'll be serving my guests these silly little Pumpkin Spice Jack-O-Lantern Rice Krispie Treat Pops
on some new custom designed stands from Cake Pop Stand Co. #sponsored

Aren't those jack-o-lantern pop stands cool? They were designed for me by Janine of the Cake Pop Stand Co. Each wood stand has holes that are the perfect size for paper straws and are spaced far enough apart to display my rice krispie treat pops. Each stand even has a little bling along the edges. They are really sturdy and held up my set of lollipops with ease. I am really excited to have these on my table this Halloween to showcase these Pumpkin Spice Jack-O-Lantern Treats.
