The decorations are up. The kids have their costumes picked out and they’ve been dreaming about Trick-or-Treat for months. They talk about last years haunting adventures and are counting down the days until Halloween. In preparation for the Halloween party were having next week me and the kids want to put together some dessert idea and prepare a scare-ific meal for Halloween and the perfect #TrickURTreat dessert.
Our meal idea started off with a trip to Walmart for everything we needed. Follow our shopping trip Here to see everything we picked up:
Tombstone Pizza with the Scary face of course.
Ingredients for Dessert: Fun size Butterfinger candy bars, Fun size Nestle Crunch, and Nerds. We also picked up a a few Halloween extra’s.
The main course is Tombstone Pizza. Perfect for Halloween. Did you know Tombstone is the official pizza of Halloween? You know why right? Because it taste so good! The whole family love it. The boys had some really great ideas for cutting up the pizza and I know you’ll just love this.
My youngest used a Ghost cookie cutter to cut the pizza. Took a bit of wiggling and a little extra help from Mom but we were able to cut the pizza into a Ghost shape. My son G said I had to cut the pizza into long sticks. He said they’d look like long scary fingers. I thought they looked like Freddy’s claws from Nightmare on Elm Street. Scary!!
Tombstone pizza cooked up so perfect. The sauce really was just the right amount and the pepperoni as you can see was plentiful. Just the way we like it. Pizza was in our oven exactly 15 minutes but remember ovens vary so you’ll want to check it to make sure it cooks the way you love it. Fast. Quick. Hot! and Easy! Because when your Trick-or-Treating its important to be able to get in, get a bite and head back out to Trick-or-Treat some more.
We then got started on dessert. Putting some ideas together my daughter and I came up with a delightfully simple dessert idea that is super quick and easy and perfect for the ghoulish, scary, Halloween treat. You can prepare the pudding and let the kids decorate for a party or before heading out and it will be ready to eat when you come back.
Ghoulish Graveyard Dessert
Here’s what you’ll need: Fun size Nestle Butterfingers, Fun size Nerds, and Fun size Nestle Crunch bars along with box of chocolate pudding (maybe 2) , and tiny little skeletons and a bowl or square pan large enough to set up as a display.
Directions: In a large bowl pour several boxes of nerds on the bottom. This will give it a surprise crunch when they dig into the bottom. Prepare the chocolate pudding according to the directions. Be sure to refrigerate it for atleast one hour after preparation. We seated plastic skeletons along the inside of the bowl and one climbing in. My daughter thought the one climbing in was hysterical. It’s all about creativity. I love when she helps me. we always have so much fun together. Once the skeletons are seated pour the cooled chocolate pudding into the bowl.
Next you’ll want to unwrap the candy bars and place the butterfingers in directly down as I did in the bowl. The Nestle crunch bars I turned upside down so you couldn’t see the wording. Made the tombs look more realistic and crumbling from age. We snapped off the skeleton’s heads and arms and tucked them in as if they were trying to stick their heads up from the ground and did the same with an arm and one leg.
The kids were super excited when they seen it all finished and couldn’t wait to dig right in. It was super simple Halloween treat to make and I hope you too will enjoy it. Letting the kids help me put it together was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see what we’ll put together next weekend.
What fun Halloween parties do you have planned? What Halloween treats do you like to make with your kids?
