Adult Halloween Party 2015

Halloween is a BIG deal in our home. I host 2 different Halloween parties. One is with 12 women that come over at the beginning of the month and then during one of the last weekends of the month we have about 50 couples in our home for an adult only halloween party!

Halloween Donut Spiders

Halloween Donut Spiders

Since I have done graveyards, bats, and ghosts already this year I figured I needed to throw in some spiders! These spiders are easy and super cute. They would be perfect for a morning Halloween party or really anytime. There is only 3 ingredients. Chocolate doughnuts, pretzels, and reeses pieces (or M&M’s if you want to eat the other colors) all ingredients are cheap and simple.

Chocolate Halloween Bats

Chocolate Halloween Bats

The other night my family had our annual pumpkin carving night. Our 3 children get to pick out their own pumpkin and then they pick out the design that they want to go on the pumpkin. I will be the first to admit that I am not the best pumpkin carver. I don’t think I am patient enough haha. So I like to stick to the treat making! This year I made 4 different treats and this one was my kids favorite by far. They were gone first. I am not sure if it is because all the ingredients are …

White Chocolate Strawberry Ghosts

Some people consider chocolate covered strawberry only something you have on special occasions. I beg to defer. Chocolate covered strawberries should be apart of every week. They are super easy to make and even better to eat! There is only a few simple ingredients and you can transform this delicacy to a fun spooky ghosts that are perfect for halloween party or dinner. My family and I made these and had them at our annual pumpkin carving night. Then delivered some to some neighbors! My kids each get to pick 1 person to delivery their “treat plate” to and it …

Ooey Gooey Candy Corn Chex Mix

I am absolutely addicted to this stuff. It has been my favorite for years no matter what holiday it is! I am usually not a huge candy corn fan but in this mix I am all about it. I make this with just chex mix but when it is too gooey sometimes I add original life cereal (like I did in the picture above) because that is what I have. You can just use chex mix I love that way too and that is how the recipe is written or you can add in original life cereal. This recipe also …

I don’t think milk or dark chocolate much but on occasion I can down a good amount of white chocolate. And when I do it is usually on popcorn or a caramel apple. Which I have had both of those this week. Haha Halloween cooking and baking has been in full force this week! And I can’t wait to share all the recipes …
