Halloween is such a fun time for me! I love being creative and making things for the kids. Not only do I get the opportunity to put together fun costumes, but it is always a great excuse to make fun foods for the kids and guests. Working with Kraft Foods on this sponsored campaign has been a perfect fit for my creative needs as well as taste buds!
Here are two very simple Halloween inspired treats that will not only be fun for your kids, but fun for you to make. Both of these require little effort in order to have a cute snack that will make your kid smile. Not to mention, they are tasty!
These cute little fellas require no cooking or baking and would make the perfect treat for after school or school parties.
Flying Ghosts on Brooms
Prep Time: 2 minutes/broom • Cook Time: 0 minutes • Serves: 126 servings (one broom/person)
1 bag (8 oz.) JET-PUFFED GHOSTMALLOWS
1 bag (16 oz.) pretzel sticks
1 box (4.5 oz.) fruit snack strips
PRESS the pretzel horizontally through the bottom of the Kraft JET-PUFFED GHOSTMALLOW making sure to leave a little more sticking out on one end than the other.
CUT off a small piece of your fruit snack. Fray one end of the fruit snack using scissors.
TWIST the fruit snack around the longer end of the pretzel in order to resemble a broom.
Love cookies? Love marshmallows? Combine them and make cute little pumpkin patch cookies! These would be a hit in a lunch box or at your next Halloween bash.
Pumpkin Patch Cookies
Prep Time: 2 minutes/cookie • Cook Time: 0 minutes • Serves: 12 people
12 cookies cookies (either store bought or homemade, any variety)
1 tub (15.6 oz.) green icing
1 bag (24 oz.) JET-PUFFED JUMBO PUMPKINMALLOWS, cut in half
Coconut flakes (optional)
Green food coloring (optional)
BAKE cookies as needed (if homemade).
ICE your cookies with the green frosting. If you want them to look truly "grassy," you can toss coconut flakes with green food coloring in order to provide a texture.
PRESS one half of a Kraft JET-PUFFED JUMBO PUMPKINMALLOW into the frosting on top of the cookie.
While these are super simple, they are also sure to receive tons of smiles and compliments. Happy Halloween decorating to you and yours!
