Ghoulish Goodies!!

Happy early Halloween everyone! This year we are taking the kids to a Halloween party and then trick or treating and I have been SUPER excited for the fun recipes I found online!! I plan on filming making them but since that won't be until Halloween and I wanted to share them with everyone before then so I am doing it this way first haha! These are all really easy recipes...I haven't decided yet which two I am going to do but I know I AM doing this first recipe!!

First up are these super cute and yummy looking Frankenstein Brownies!! What you'll need:
-One box of Betty Crocker or your favorite brand of brownie mix(you can even do it from scratch)
-Neon green and purple food coloring, or you can mix colors to get them (blue and red make purple)
-M&M's or another small candy for the eyes
-Black tube of decorative icing
-Candy corn
-Water, vegetable oil, and egg called for on box
-one cup vanilla frosting(has to be vanilla so you can dye it)
Bake them according to whatever recipe you are following, and then decorate just like the pics above! I will go into more detail in the video, if I do that here it would be WAAAAY too long haha!

Next up we have little WITCH HATS!
Aren't these super cute? They are easy to make too! What you need:
-Hershey's Kisses (unwrapped)
-One pack fudge striped shortbread cookies
-One tube of Red or Orange decorative icing
With the bottom side up place the kisses in the center (attach using the icing and use the icing to make your rim for the hats!

Now we have WIZARD HATS!!
You need:
-One box refrigerated pie crusts softened
-3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Roll out your crust and cut into wedges, at the thicker end of the wedge place your chocolate chips and then roll the wedge upward to the point, leaving 4 inches unrolled. Mix your sugar and cinnamon together and then sprinkle over your wizard hats and bake them 11-14 minutes at 375 degrees.

Lastly we have delicious Jack 'O Lantern Quesadillas...
16 (8-inch) flour tortillas, preferably red or orange

  • 8 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 4 cups grated pepper Jack cheese (12 oz.) or just cheddar(whichever kind you like)

  • Preheat broiler to high and place an oven rack about 5 inches from heat source. Spray your baking sheet so they don't stick. Place tortillas on a cutting board and use a sharp paring knife to trim away some of top, leaving a 1-inch "stem" so tortillas are shaped like pumpkins. Use a knife to cut two triangles for eyes and a crescent for a mouth into 8 tortillas.

  • Warm 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add a tortilla without eyes and mouth, sprinkle with a scant 1/2 cup cheese. Cover with cutout tortilla. Cook until underside is golden, 1 to 2 minutes, slide onto baking sheet, and repeat to make three more quesadillas.

  • Place baking sheet under broiler and broil until tops are golden. Slide onto a serving platter and loosely tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas and cheese. Serve immediately.


  • -Have fun eating all these delicious Ghoulish Goodies!
