Halloween Brownie Skeletons

If you want to make somebody happy this Halloween make some Halloween Brownie Skeletons! My grandkids love baking with me. And they will love making these. They can do everything but the faces and hands and arms. It is fun to put them all together too.

Halloween Brownie Skeletons are so cute and they make up as skinny treats so they will go far. This cookie sheet (Costco's large cookie sheets) made 21 treats. 

Here is a close up of my Halloween Brownie Skeleton treats. I made the middle row into just some square brownies with some black and orange sprinkles and a candy corn. 

The bodies are just made from yogurt or white chocolate covered pretzels. I then bought some white chocolate disks from Michaels Craft Store. Those make the heads. The rest is just chocolate and vanilla icing in a piping bag using a very small round tip to make the little faces and arms and legs.
I'm all ready for the Halloween Party now!  I made this cute little Toy Story Jessie costume out of some yellow felt glue gunned onto a white  shirt and I topped it with some red braid. The cow material is just pinned to my favorite jeans. It turned out cute with the little red hat.
Have fun at the Halloween Par-tay!

Halloween Scone Tacos

I'm making some Halloween Scone Tacos today. They are easy and really yummy.

My Halloween Scone Tacos are made from Mountain Mills Scone Mix. You can get it at Costco and I think at Walmart too. It is an easy mix to make Yummy Scones for Halloween night before your little critters run all over the street eating lots of too tempting junk! 

I tried rolling out the dough and making a "pumpkin shape using a cookie cutter. But alas, when I fried them up and covered them with the chili fixins, they kinda disappeared. But the kids won't know that! 

Here are my sad little "pumpkins". Hey, what happened to my stem? Looks more like a blob to me. But again, the kids will never know if you call them Halloween Pumpkin Scones. Hey, maybe these would be good with Einsteins Pumpkin Shmear? I shoulda thought of that! 

This stuff is to die for good. It's my new favorite thing. I eat the pumpkin Shmear on toast, bagels, fingers, anything! It would be GREAT on scones! 
But chili and all the taco toppings are also great on scones! I think I used leftover chili for these scones, but you could also used canned. I like corn in my chili, but the hubs does not. I try to hide veggies in things like casseroles and soups and chilis. Otherwise we don't eat them enough. 

I put cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers on mine since I ran out of lettuce. (gotta have a green vegetable, right?) lol 

Next I want to figure out how to make this pretzel bark. Yummo. 
I'm going to try to figure out what else would be good on a scone beside chili, pumpkin cream cheese, and honey butter. In the meantime I'm trying not to chow down on all of the Halloween candy I've bought. It is really hard!

Halloween Finger Foods

I love Halloween. I love decorating for it, partying on the day in a costume, and making fun and scary finger foods for all my guests to enjoy. Especially my little grandkiddos. 

Cute table decor can be as simple as a jar of candy corn. Isn't this so cute? My daughter put a jar inside the jar and just has the in between area filled with candy corn! Genius! 

Or decorate your chairs with simple pumpkin chairbacks made from orange felt. 

Everybody loves scarecrow cupcakes. This would be a great finger food for any fall party. 

Or individual pecan pies made in cupcake tins. Super easy and yummy. A good recipe for these is at All

Add a little pizzaz to your chips and salsa by getting these orange and black tortilla chips that are in the stores now. But hurry because they go fast! 

I went a little crazy on the Halloween cupcakes a few years ago. Check out the blog for tutorials on all of them. The tutorial and more pictures are HERE.

Some of the spiderweb ones we later added spider rings we got from Walmart. 

My very favorite party finger food is potato skins. They are always a hit. 

These brownies I decorated with yogurt covered pretzels, white chocolate disks for heads and then used white icing in a small round tip for the rest. They were fun. 

Pigs in a blanket are always a hit. Find some hot dogs you like and cut them into thirds. Then wrap them with Crescent roll dough and bake. Mustard and catsup bowls for dipping the pigs. 

Pumpkin breads cut up into half slices are always easy as well as cream cheese ham and onion roll ups. Recipe I use is from Lee Drummond HERE  only I add pieces of ham or bits of bacon to mine. 

Buy some store bought pies with the whip cream or meringue on top and just draw black spiderweb over it. Add a plastic spider. 

Veggies and dip are always popular as are fresh salads. You can always do a salad bar and ask a few friends to bring one too. Then make homemade rolls and fresh butter. That's a fun party. 

Muffins of all kinds are great party foods. Add your favorite soups. Or better yet buy some bread bowls from your local market and ask them to make them half size. That also makes fun party foods. 

Everybody likes apple wedges and caramel dipping sauce. This on was really rich and caramelly. Here is a recipe for the one I use HERE.

Candy bars for take home fun are great for kids and adults alike. 

And you can't beat a pretty yummy sugar cookie any time. 

These glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme. Just add the vampire plastic teeth and 2 chocolate chips to each one for a cute vampire donut. Kids loved these at my classroom Halloween Party. But they loved the sugar cookies even better. And they were probably cheaper.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN all you ghouls and goblins!
