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 โ€” Hersheyโ€™s Cookies N Crรจme 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.
