BOO! Halloween is approaching hauntingly fast. To help you have the best looking treats at your Halloween gathering this week, we have 4 “recipes” for y’all that have dressed up in their best costume for Halloween.
These super cute and simply Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins are perfect for any fall get together you may be planning. Make rice krispie treats like usual, but add orange food coloring into the mixture, and let them harden as a ball. Before they completely harden, put a Rolo and a green m&m on top to have your dessert transform into this autumn masterpiece. (Extra Bonus: Since you are only using green m&m’s, you get to eat the rest yourself!)
These Strawberry Ghosts are sure to make your guests scream for joy! Dip strawberries in white chocolate and leave a little trail pf white chocolate hanging off the end. Add two candy eyes to make a BERRY scary dessert. (Extra Bonus: Since this recipe has fruit in it, it isn’t a total sugar overload when paired with all the candy you’ll be eating this Halloween!)
These little monsters are the perfect treat for your little monsters. Make regular square rice krispie treats. After they have hardened, dip the end of one in monster colored candy melts. Before the chocolate dries, put 1,2, or 3 candy eyes on your monster. These treats may be cuter than they are scary, but this idea is frighteningly delicious. (Extra Bonus: If your really running low on time, you could buy already made rice krispie treats and save a few steps.)
These Ghost Pretzels are as adorable as they are delicious. Dip pretzels (or pretzels rods) in white chocolate. Put candy eyes in the two top holes on the pretzel (or at the top of the rod) before the chocolate dries and you have some very adorable ghosts that a ready to haunt any party. (Extra Bonus: If you use normal pretzels, you are sure to get white chocolate on your fingers which means you get to eat some bonus chocolate!)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken pieces to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook, flipping once until chicken is cooked through and golden brown. Remove pan from heat. Add barbecue sauce to the pan and toss chicken to coat.
Place tortilla on a plate. Layer with a spoonful of barbecue chicken, cheese, pineapple, onion, chopped romaine and cilantro. Roll, burrito style and secure with a toothpick. Serve immediately.

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to decorate your front porch for all the little Trick or Treaters around your house. Make all your guests’ days by welcoming them with candy in this super cute Pumpkin Door Hanger. How cool is this? We love it, and that’s why it’s our favorite DIY this week!
– Chalkboard (this one is from Michaels)
– Half Pumpkin (also from Michaels)
– Wood Burning Tool with razor blade attachment
– 1/2” Screw and Drill
– 1/2” Nail and Hammer
– Black and White Paint and Paintbrushes
First, I drew out a smiley face on the pumpkin with pencil. Making sure to leave enough room at the bottom so I could actually fill it with Hershey’s candy.
Once I drew my smiley face I used my wood burner took with the razor blade attachment to cut out the mouth area. Because it is hot, please be extremely careful, go slow, and pay close attention to what you are doing.
After the mouth was cut out I decided to paint on the eyes. I traced out some eyes with a pencil and used paint brushes and daubers to get the nice clean white circle.
Next I had to mount the pumpkin to the chalkboard. Since there is a hanger on the back of the pumpkin I just screwed the screw in to the top center of the chalkboard and hung the pumpkin up. But since I am putting candy in it I needed the bottom to be secure as well. Since I didn’t want to go the permanent route with super glue, being that I would probably reuse it, I decided to just hang it straight on the board with the screw.
To secure the bottom I decided to hammer a nail in slightly and then with the pumpkin being foam I was able to just slip the pumpkin edge right over the nail to hold it in place. The head end of the nail actually penetrated into the foam.
Now all that’s left is to fill it with seasonal favorites from Hershey that include chocolate assortment variety bags with a little something for everyone, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins, Kit Kat® bars and Cadbury Screme Eggs.
