A Spooky Time

Last night we hosted our annual Halloween Party last year’s was such a success I couldn’t wait to do it all over again! We decked the house out in full Halloween decor and I spent the entire day in the kitchen cooking up some spooky delights. 

 

I made guac with a spider web of greek yogurt: 

 

 

My pumpkin cheeseball, pumpkin donuts (though I won’t share the recipe because I haven’t perfected it yet), bat wings, mummie dogs (hot dogs split in half and wrapped in crescent rolls to look like mummies with eyes dotted with chili sauce), and halloween bark (recipe below). The food as usual was a hit, everyone really seemed to enjoy it. We all had so much fun and there were so many great costumes. I went as Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Bruce went as a western bartender. 

 

 

Everyone had such great costumes, we had a big turn out so overall it was a really fun night! Today was spent cleaning up and recovering, a sign of a great night! 🙂 

 

Halloween Bark

Ingredients

  • 2 bags of semi sweet chocolate chunks 
  • 10 golden oreos chopped
  • 15 – 20 pretzels chopped 
  • candy corn (20ish pieces)

 

Melt 1 bag of chocolates in microwave stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Spred melted chocolate out over a parchment covered cookie sheet. Press chopped oreos and pretzels into it and then place in freezer until hardened. Melt second bag of chocolate and pour over top of first layer, then press candy corn into the chocolate and freeze again until hardened. When done break into pieces by hand!
