It’s beginning to look a LOT like Halloween around here!

And I love it! Halloween is our favorite family holiday. I feel like it’s the only holiday that’s just ours. For every other holiday, we spend them with extended family. And we love that. Halloween is our thing, though. It starts with the school party – always the Friday night before Halloween. Then we have a whole day planned of getting in costumes early, hitting the downtown trick-or-treating, walking in the town parade, and doing the house trick-or-treating. Such festive fun.

And before that, we do a lot of decorating and mini parties.

That’s why I was so excited to find Mini Babybel® at Target this year, and with special Halloween wrappers! I’ve loved them since I was a kid, and now my kids do too. What’s not to love? It’s a wholesome, nutrient-rich, all natural snacking option for the whole family, and friends. That’s why it’s always on my menu for parties. Since Halloween parties need some savory goodness, I’m making Mini BabyBel mummies all season long! They’re so easy to make and a hit with kids.

First, I go to Target.

Then I use string cheese for the “bandages” and olives for the “eyes.” With the string cheese, you have to peel it pretty thin to give it that awesome bandage look. It’s really fun to make, and of course I eat more than I make.

There’s so much to love about these Halloween Party Treats.

Mini Babybel® 100% real cheese is always a hit. There are six varieties, and that big taste always saves snack time, and Halloween snack time too. Like I said, I loved it as a kid. There’s a rich taste and creamy texture, and no artificial growth hormones*. No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBTS – Treated and non-rBST treated cows.

Also, the seasonal packaging makes it a bigger joy!

Zombie Graves Mini Halloween Cakes

How fun are these Zombies in the graveyard? Easy to make with pre-made Rice Krispie treats! Great for any party or reason for Halloween Cakes! #recipe #fun

I originally posted this in 2017, but had to bring it back. Zombie Graves! Mini Halloween Cakes!

It’s simultaneously easy/creepy. It’s all things Halloween in this household, in ways I haven’t fully discovered yet. I’ve been in my blur of photo editing, lack of vitamin D (thanks, 14 gloomy days in a row), and being in a total fog after our DC trip over the weekend. That said, this is Halloween time! It’s on all of our brains! (BRAAAAIIIINS) I’m trying really hard not to give any spoilers away. It aches me not to share photos of Des’ costume. It’s SO cute that my teeth hurt. Mine is funny and goofy, but not fetching. Scarlet’s is brilliant but will go over some people’s heads, and Cassidy’s costume is still evolving.

These days, I rely heavily on video and phone photos. They’re good, but they’re not real camera photos. And that said, it’s super hard to juggle two excited kids, my own propensity for dressing up, and a phone, AND a camera. I’ll see what I can do, though. It matters. A lot. And I’m super horrible at keeping secrets so I’m just going to stop talking now and share a recipe.

All good things in due time! I promise you that.

Zombie Graves Mini Halloween Cakes:

Ingredients

1 pkg. Rice Krispies Treats
1 can Vanilla Frosting
1 pkg. Chocolate Graham Crackers
2 — Hershey’s Cookies N Crème Candy Bars
Wilton Candy Melts, Orange
Green Candy Shreds
Black Food Coloring
1 pkg. Gummy Monsters

Halloween Treats

Directions

  1. Color the frosting with a few drops of black food coloring so it is a dark gray color, and then spread it on top of each of the Rice Krispies Treats.
  2. Place a monster on each one so it looks like it is coming up from the ground.
  3. Crush one package of the grahams and sprinkle over the frosting. Sprinkle some green candy shreds on to look like grass.
  4. Divide each candy bar into 3 sections. You can use an edible marker to write dates or funny names on the candy bar headstones.
  5. Melt the orange chocolate melts per package directions and put a dot on the front bottom edge of each candy bar headstone and press against the end of the krispies treat behind the zombie.
