Halloween Happy Hour:
It's the fall season and October is my favorite month of the whole year. Halloween is my Christmas I love everything about it from scary movies, carving pumpkins and picking out the perfect Halloween costume! I wanted to get together with some of my girlfriends and throw a Halloween happy hour. If you love Halloween as much as I do here are some spooktacular ideas on how to throw the perfect Halloween happy hour! Here are three super easy and quick recipes you can try!
Spider web chocolate Bundt cake: Ingredients: Any box of chocolate cake mix 1 package of instant chocolate pudding mix (3.9 oz.) 3 tablespoons baking cocoa 1 and 3/4 cups milk 2 eggs 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips Confectioners sugar Bundt cake pan Combine ingredients in a large bowl and beat till smooth. Then, add chocolate chips and pour into Bundt cake pan. Bake on 350f for about 50 minutes. Mix confectioners sugar with a little bit of milk to make the icing. Add a tablespoon of vanilla or any flavoring of your choice. Drizzle the icing over the cake to make it look like a spider web. Last, add decorative spiders on top! I found these silver, glitter spiders at Pottery Barn!
White pumpkin cheese ball recipe I found from Southern Living: Ingredients: Sharp shredded cheddar cheese 10 oz. Package of plain cream cheese 8 oz. Goat cheese 4 oz. Pepper & salt Your choice of crackers Use a pretzel or celery stick to garnish the top Mix everything together in a large bowl and mold it into the shape of a pumpkin.
Witch Finger’s Ingredients: Almond sliced Red food coloring 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon active dry yeast (one 1/4 oz. package) 6 cups all purpose flour 1 tablespoon salt 2 tablespoons baking soda 1 large egg Dried rosemary Vegetable oil cooking spray
On a cutting board or hard surface spread some cooking oil and lay out your dough. Cut the dough into long pieces and cut the long pieces in half. Then scrunch them up to look like fingers and sprinkle some rosemary over them. Set them on your baking sheet and add the sliced almonds (finger nails). Bake on 350f for about 8 to 10 minutes. After, they have cooled get your red food coloring and add a small amount of water and paint the almonds. This is one of my favorite recipes from Martha Stewart that I have used for a few years now. They are so fun!
