This time of year, I love all things pumpkin. I’m in the kitchen whipping up all kinds of pumpkin flavored treats and meals. That’s why I’m excited to be a Kraft Tastemaker. It gives me the opportunity to explore all of the great recipes on the Kraft site. I was recently looking for Halloween party ideas and was inspired by the VELVEETA Chili Dip. With just two ingredients it sounds like a delicious and easy appetizer, perfect for fall and Halloween celebrations.
I decided to take the simple creativity of this recipe, my love of pumpkin, and combine it all with a fall family favorite, KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese. I couldn’t wait to try this Halloween Pumpkin Mac & Cheese recipe and was impressed by how easy and flavorful it is. The cheesy goodness mixed with the pumpkin makes for a wonderful comfort dish.
I made the macaroni and cheese by following the directions on the box. After the cheese, milk, and butter were mixed in I added the pumpkin and served it warm. It was so festive, fall flavored, and easy that I added it to my list of favorites. It’s a perfect Halloween food and I look forward to enjoying it often on those cool autumn evenings.
I also thought it would be lots of fun for the kids to make this recipe using Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with Halloween Shapes. This would be a big hit with the kids and a fun way to celebrate Halloween. I’ll be keeping my eye out for it and I know the kids will want me to pick up a few boxes while they are still around.
