Last Minute Halloween Treats

I had a Halloween event last night at church and I was in charge of bring the treats.  If you're bringing the goods to any parties this weekend, I've got a few simple ideas for you here.

My mom came over and showed me how to make these cute little owl cupcakes.  You can't really tell from the picture, but the beak comes out at you and it's make of cut up Starbursts.

We also made what we decided to call "Crow's Feet."  These are really easy to make and they are freakishly good.

Just put a bunch of pretzels on a plate.  Place a Rollo on each one and microwave them until the chocolate barely starts to melt.  Press a pecan onto the top.  That's it!  They really are seriously good.  They have that salty-sweet combo that's so tasty.

I wanted to do one more super simple thing for those who might not like chocolate, so I threw some tissues over some suckers.  Add a twisty-tie and two dots for eyes.  Little ghosts.

For the drinks I put a scoop of lime sherbet into each cup of Sprite.  (Sorry, no picture.)  It foams and looks green.  Kind of fun.  I also printed up some labels to put in front of each food item and then antiqued the edges with an ink pad.

If you want the labels yourself just click HERE to get the PDF file.

Thanks for dropping in.  See you tomorrow.
