Spooky Cat Breakfast


We made this fun Spooky Cat Breakfast this weekend and it's very easy to make!  My boys thought this was so cool!

Spooky Cat Breakfast

Pancake Mix (we love Krusteaz)
Cocoa Powder
2 Beaten Eggs

Prepare the pancake mix according to directions.  We mixed in a little cocoa to make chocolate pancakes. Make a big pancake in a pan on low heat.  We cut out the cat using kitchen scissors and cut our bats from the scraps.  We poured the beaten eggs in a pan to make another big circle.  We cut around one side for extra egg to make the eyes.  Place the egg moon on a plate and then place the spooky cat on top.  Decorate with bats and cut out the pupils with pancake scraps.

Frankenstein Bento Lunch


Remember the Shortcut Monster Finger Treats we shared yesterday? Well we added those monster fingers to this fun Frankenstein Bento Lunch! This is a easy Halloween lunch to make for the kids and they will love opening this up for lunch at school!  

Frankenbento....

Sandwich of Choice
1 Fruit Leather Strip
Container of Apple Sauce
A Few Green Grapes
Veggie Straws (we picked out the spinach ones)
1 Mini Marshmallow
Shortcut Monster Finger Treats

We started out by cutting off the crust from our bread into a rectangle.  Make whatever sandwich your kids like.  We cut off a thin strip from the fruit leather using kitchen scissors.  We made Frankenstein's mouth with the thin strip. We then cut out zig zags from the rest of the fruit leather to make his hair. We made eye brows and pupils using scraps.  Cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes.  We placed 2 green grapes on the bottom sides for his electrodes.  We added spinach veggie straws. We decorated the apple sauce using black marker.  Kroger brand apple sauce is solid green on top. We added our Shortcut Monster Finger Treats next to Frank's head for dessert.


We used Easy Lunchboxes to make this fun Halloween bento!

Shortcut Monster Finger Treats


We receive big boxes of snacks from Kellogg's since I have teamed up with snackpicks.com as their cooking with kids expert.  I have to grab what I need very quickly from these boxes before my kids dive in! Most people would think the amount of snacks we receive would last us for months, but not in my house full of boys!  I did get to my hands on some Rice Krispie Treats before my boys could get to them and we thought it would be fun to make these easy Shortcut Monster Finger Treats for Halloween!  

Shortcut Monster Finger Treats

Pre-Packaged Kellogg's Rice Krispie Treats
Betty Crocker Green Cookie Frosting
Sliced Almonds

All you do is cut the Rice Krispies Treat in half with a knife (to make 2 fingers).  Squeeze a little green cookie frosting on the top. Place a sliced almond on top of the frosting to look like a finger nail.  Squeeze more green frosting in the middle of the finger to make the knuckle lines. Let set and that is it!  

These would be a super easy treat to make for a Halloween party!


You could also spray some of them green with Wilton green edible spray....


Here is a close up....

Owl S'mores on a Stick and 20+ Other Ways to use a Pumpkin Cookie Cutter!


We were asked by Callye of The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle if we wanted to be included in a group of bloggers to create anything we wanted using a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter.  We said...absolutely!  Callye creates the most amazing cookies we have ever seen and is so talented!  We felt so honored that she would think of us to help with this project of hers!

I have to admit that we were a bit intimidated being combined with such talent.  As most of you know...we make a lot of s'mores pops. They are always my boys favorite treat.  They are super easy to make as well.  We thought that a Owl S'mores on a Stick would be fun to make using our pumpkin cookie cutter. We also made a small thought bubble using a mini pumpkin cookie cutter.  Also, remember the giant box of marshmallows we received from Jet-Puffed?  Well..we had fun dipping into that box to make these!

Owl S'mores on a Stick

Graham Crackers (we used Keebler)
Jumbo, Large , Stacker & Mini Marshmallows (we used Jet-Puffed)
Chocolate Chips
Chocolate Cookie Frosting (we used Betty Crocker)
Black Edible Marker
Lollipop Sticks

Optional.... we got a bit crafty with one of our owls using brown construction paper, a large pretzel stick, and a orange pipe cleaner.

You want to start out by cutting out the pumpkin shapes from your graham crackers using your pumpkin cookie cutter.  Ours always cut right through without any breaking. However, if they do just push it back together & glue on the back side with the chocolate cookie frosting....let set.


You want to flip the cut out graham crackers with the insides facing up.  Cut a jumbo marshmallow in half using kitchen scissors. Then cut a slit to the middle.  Take a large marshmallow and push in the middle of the slit on the jumbo marshmallow.  Squeeze the chocolate cookie frosting on one of the graham cut outs.  Place the marshmallows on top.  They squeeze more frosting on top of the marshmallows.  Place another graham cut out on top and let set for 5-10 minutes. Push in the lollipop stick through the bottoms.

Decorating the face...

We cut mini marshmallows in a triangle shape using kitchen scissors and sprayed them on wax paper with orange color spray. You could also color them with orange edible marker or used the mini colored marshmallows.  The mini color marshmallows  are very light in color so we wanted ours to stand out a bit.  We cut a large marshmallow in half. We attached them on the face for the eyes using the chocolate cookie frosting.  We decorated around the eyes using the chocolate frosting.  We attached 2 chocolate chips on the marshmallows for pupils and attached 2 chocolate chips on the top for the ears.  We also attached the orange mini marshmallow on the bottom using the frosting.

Making the Thought Bubble...

We cut out a small pumpkin shape using a mini pumpkin cookie cutter.  We flipped it upside down.  We wrote Hoo Hoo using a black edible marker. We colored a tooth pick with our black edible marker and pressed it in the pumpkin bubble and the marshmallow on the side of the owl.  We cut mini marshmallows in half and glued them a couple on the black toothpick with frosting.  



For our crafty owl we made feet on the ends of a orange pipe cleaner.  We wrapped the pipe cleaner around a large pretzel stick and wrapped up with lollipop stick.  We cut out a triangle piece from brown construction paper and tucked it under the face and feet.  

Here is a close up of our crafty owl....

These Owl S'mores on a Stick were so fun to make with my boys and they loved them!  My boys were running around with these and they are very sturdy!  Even our crafty owl!

Pumpkin Bento Lunch


We have started to make some fun & easy bento school lunches for Halloween.  This Pumpkin Bento Lunch is super easy to make and a fun way to get the kids to eat carrots without complaining!  We used a Easy Lunchboxes Container

Pumpkin Bento Lunch

2 Pieces of Bread
Cheddar Cheese
Turkey (optional)
Lettuce
1 Carrot
1 Clementine
Large Pretzel Stick
1 Fruit Leather Strip
Pumpkin Shaped Cookies (found at World Market)
Black Edible Marker

We cut our bread, cheese, and turkey with a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter.  You could also just shape it yourself using kitchen scissors if you do not have a cutter.  We placed the turkey in the middle of the 2 bread slices and the cheese on top.  We cut a small strip from our fruit leather using kitchen scissors. We cut the strip into triangles to make the pumpkin face for the sandwich. We put lettuce under the pumpkin sandwich for the kids to put on the sandwich at lunchtime.  We place 2 pumpkin shaped cookies on the sides of the sandwich to look like a pumpkin patch.  

We cut a large peeled carrot into slices. We then snipped out 2 corners from the top using kitchen scissors to shape the slices into pumpkins.  We did end up squeezing a bit of ranch dressing on the side to dip the pumpkin carrots in.  

We cut a small circle from the top of a clementine.  We broke off a piece of a large pretzel stick and pushed it into the top.  We used black edible marker to make a pumpkin face.  We cut a piece of a green grape to look like a leaf. 

Pretty easy for a Halloween lunch this cute right?!

Frankenstein & His Bride Fruit Snack


We made this fun Frankenstein & His Bride Fruit Snack the other day and my boys and their friends loved it! It's a healthy & fun after school Halloween snack to make for or with the kids!

Frankenstein & His Bride Fruit Snack

1 Green Apple
Dark Grapes
Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows

Cut the apple in half and place on a plate.  Cut a hand full of dark grapes in half and place them on top of one for the apples to make the brides hair.  We cut the ends off of some of the grapes for Frankenstein hair to make a flat edge.  We decorated the faces with our grape scraps using kitchen scissors.  Cut mini marshmallows in half for the eyes and lightning for the brides hair.  

My 2 older boys with their Frankenstein Fruit!
