I know that today is Halloween so there isn’t much time to plan and prepare these great treats, but I am sure there are other procrastinaters out there like me. Of course, it is not that we put things off, but our lives are so full of really important activities that we don’t have time for planning trivial things like googly eyed cookies. Well, at least that is what I tell myself to make me feel better.
These adorable treats were not made by me, but by my bff, Jennifer, for her daughter’s birthday. I was really tempted to post a pic so you could meet her, but I knew she would kill me!! Her daughter’s birthday is in October so what would be more perfect than a Halloween theme birthday party? Jen is really creative and comes up with the cutest ideas for parties, teacher gifts, crafts etc.
She set the stage for the party with these brilliant bat invitations
You can find a tutorial on how to make these here.
A Happy Birthday banner welcomed the guest. This idea can be easily adapted to any occasion.
Her treats were great! These Mummified Oreo Suckers are too cute!! I love that they are on a stick and the googly eyes are darling. You can find a tutorial on how to make these here.
The eyes were made of royal icing. They look hard to me, but the recipe says they are easy to make. You can find the tutorial for the googly eyes here.
These strawberry ghosts are super cute and gives kids a healthier option. Right? Hehe!
You can find the recipe here.
These Nutter Butter Ghostly Cookies are always a hit and are soooo good. I love peanut butter and white chocolate so they are one of my favorites! I am not sure what recipe she used, but when I have made them in the past I simply melted white chocolate chips adding a little crisco or vegetable oil to thin the chocolate, and then dip each cookie tapping in on the side of the pan to release the excess chocolate. They are really easy. Just be careful not to scorched your chocolate when melting!
These “pumpkin seeds” are a really cute idea!
You can find the tutorial here.
The cuteness doesn’t stop!! Check out these fangtastic party favors! These sure beat giving candy as party favors!!
Here are a couple of pics of the spread from the party. Jen always makes the cutest cakes for her girls’ birthdays!! Love the spider cake!
And another pic
Hope this gives you some great ideas! Great job Jen!
