Simply Spooky

With Halloween right around the corner, there is no time to waste pulling together your Halloween party.  Today I shared some of my favorite simply spooky last minute party tips with Page Crawford on WNCN Today.  It is easier than you think to throw together an unforgettable Halloween party for guests of all ages!

     Simple Sweets.
o   S’mores Shots.  Place 1 Graham Cracker, 1 Mini Hersey’s Bar and 2 Ghost Marshmallows in an orange shot glass and you have a simply scrumptious s’mores shots.  And let’s be honest, is it really a party without s’mores?
o   Oreo Pops.  If you don’t have the time or culinary abilities to make cake pops, simply put a Halloween Oreo on a lollipop stick and you have an adorable Oreo pop.  If you want to get a little fancy, dip the Oreos in white chocolate and decorate them as little ghost pops.

     Fun and Easy Decorations.  
o   Mustache Pumpkins.  If you don’t have the time or patience to carve a pumpkin, decorate your pumpkin with a mustache.  You can even get fancy with a paint pen or face stickers.

     Delicious Drinks. 
o   Candy Corn Martini.  Why should the kids have all of the fun?  Serve your grownup guests Candy Corn Martinis made with Candy Corn infused Vodka and Butterscotch Schnapps.

     Sugar-Free Treats. 
o   Halloween Fun Favors.  Halloween favors for the kids at school or your trick-or-treaters don’t have to be chalk full of sugar.  Wrap up a Halloween cookie cutter from the Dollar Store with a mini Play-Do for a fun alternative to candy.

A huge thank you to everyone at WNCN for having me on again!

Have a wonderful Halloween!  And try not to eat all of the candy before the trick-or-treaters arrive ;-)

Until next time,
aka Chick #1
