ghostly rice krispies treats for my Halloween party

Rice Krispies Treats are a favorite in my house so they tend to grace every holiday party with this past Friday’s Halloween party being no exception. Let’s get crafty and make some Ghostly Rice Krispies Treats pops!

Ghost Rice Krispies Treat Pops for Halloween | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

To make Rice Krispies Treats Ghosts (yield six), you’ll need:

  • 6 cups rice crispy cereal
  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • 3 tsp butter
  • 1 cup white icing
  • 1/4 chocolate icing
  • 6 lollipop sticks
  • egg shaped cookie cutter (inch deep)
  • wax paper
  • 2 plastic icing bottles
  • toothpicks

Easy steps:

  1. Butter the cookie cutter and your hands and then mold each ghost while the treats are still warm.
  2. Insert the popsicle sticks into the bottom (small part of the egg) of each crispy. (Tip: Doing it later might cause your icing to crack.)
  3. Add white icing into a plastic icing bottle and pipe the outline of the shape.
  4. Heat the remaining icing for 8 seconds and slowly fill the krispie, pulling any icing to the sides with a toothpick.
  5. Allow the icing to set for at least five minutes.
  6. Add chocolate icing to second icing bottle and pipe faces.
  7. Allow to set for a few hours if you decide to package in cello bags.

Happy Halloween everyone and as always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

easy monster eye Halloween window tutorial

Make your windows a little spooky this Halloween with this simple monster eyes window décor idea!

Monster Eyes Halloween Window Tutorial with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own.

My family hosts an annual Halloween party every year, the Byers Family Boo Bash! {grin} And this year my boys are finally old enough to help me decorate. And with them being old enough to help, that also means they have their own ideas!

With 15 giggling kiddos coming over, my boys wanted to decorate their tree house to be a bit spooky. Nothing too creepy… but just enough to get a “eeek!” out of their friends! There is a flip up, hatch-type window, on the front so the boys made a Monster Eye Window. It was super easy and a big hit with the kiddos!

To make monster eye windows this Halloween, you’ll need:

  • Roll or two of Cottonelle Triple Roll (I’ve even got a Cottonelle coupon for you! Buy Cottonelle Triple Roll 12-pack or larger and get a FREE box of Kleenex while supplies last.)
  • 2 Sheets of Black Cardstock
  • 2 Nails and Hammer (or tape if you’re covering a real window)

And here are the three easy steps:

  1. Cut two large circles out of cardstock.
  2. Nail to window, or tape if glass.
  3. Wrap with toilet paper (tape at each side if you can’t wrap around).

Mummy Wrap Halloween Game with TheCelebrationShoppe.com

In addition to the monster eyes, we also had a mummy wrap game during the party. Sadly, it was a bit too dark to get good pics, these were taken with my iPhone, but it was a riot! Just have the kids pair up and choose who is going to wrap and who is going to be wrapped. Then, starting at the legs, ready-set-go and wrap to the top. The first to finish without the toilet paper breaking wins!

AND, we had a “Bowling for Witches” game. I’ll be posting about it next and it will include FREE printables!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

witch brooms

witch brooms This was my second experiment of the weekend and it also turned out well. It’s really simple and once again can be made egg and dairy free for the little ones with food allergies simply by using dairy free chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • Pretzels, small sticks (Tip: Look at your local brands, you want the thinnest pretzel stick you can find so that the chocolate holds it together easily)
  • Melting chocolate (I used Wilton’s orange candy mold chocolate; it melts easily with no clumps)
  • Decorating sugars

Tools:

  • Wax paper
  • Tie wrap
  • Resealable bag

Steps:

  • Taking 10 pretzels, tap them flat so that they are all the same length and then place a tie wrap about a 1/3 of the way down (I left one on in the picture for reference)
  • With your hand, gently turn the bottom of the pretzels to give them a fan effect so that they will stand on their own
  • Place about 4-5 chocolate blocks in a resealable bag. Heat it in the microwave for no more than 15 seconds at a time, massaging between, until you have a smooth chocolate to work with
  • Snip the corner, no more than a 1/8 inch, of your bag and pipe a dollop on the top of the pretzels. Allow it to set for a moment and then apply one pretzel stick as the handle. You may need to pipe a little extra chocolate on top so that the bottom of the stem is covered
  • Hold the handle with your finger for about 10 seconds and then it should stand on its own while it dries (Tip: You want your chocolate warm, but not hot, when you apply the handle, otherwise you’ll have to hold it much longer.)
  • Embellish with sprinkles immediately before the chocolate hardens
  • After the broom has been allowed to dry for at least 15 to 20 minutes, you can pick it up, remove the tie wrap and pipe on an icing band as decoration

Tip: Store your brooms in an air tight container if you’re not serving them immediately, otherwise your pretzels will get stale.

no carve pumpkins

no carve pumpkin Our boys get so excited about the season each year that we typically buy our pumpkins in mid September. So that we can enjoy our pumpkins longer, we outline a carving template on our pumpkins and then color them in with a black sharpie (we ran through two large ones last year). Our neighbors and guests think they’re carved and marvel at how perfect they are. And since we can’t illuminate them from the inside, we use purple and orange lights all around our display so you can see our creations in the dark.
