As a grown up, Halloween celebrations are few and far between. No longer do we go out door to door, and all of my children are all teenagers and don’t do the door to door thing either. So if you want to have some fun on Halloween, you have to create your own Halloween celebration.
And that’s just what we did. Since my kids are teenagers, they wanted to make dressing up optional. This made sense to me and most of them chose to dress up anyway, but some came without a costume.
We had a blast shopping for easy appetizers to serve – we went with Mozzarella sticks dripping in blood (marinara sauce), mummy dogs, deviled eggs with black olive spiders on top, a cheese ball with crackers – the cheese ball we made look like a giant eyeball and bacon ranch dip and chips served in a bread bowl cauldron. Then there were the sweets, we went with these delicious but extremely easy Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes with cute Flipz pretzel pumpkins, Witches hats made out of chocolate cookies, icing and candy kisses and then of course, bowls of candy were placed all around the area the teens were hanging out in, for an instant candy bar fix.
Like I said, we picked these really easy Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes because well, they are of course perfectly easy and wonderfully delicious.
We also made sure to have plenty of bowls of Flipz pretzels around as well. The kids loved the coated pretzels that come coated in White Fudge, Milk Chocolate, Birthday Cake, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Mint. My favorite is Dark Chocolate and I enjoyed quite a few of them! They are deliciously sweet and awesomely crunchy. A match made in heaven.
We decided to dip some of our pretzels in orange melted candy melts to turn them into tiny pumpkins for the tops of the cupcakes we were serving. It was a VERY easy process and they looked so cute sitting there waiting for the kids to gobble them up.
These went fast and were a huge hit. The kids loved the Flipz pumpkins and made an executive decision to make more while at the party, just because they were fun. We wound up with a LOT of pumpkins, but they were happily eaten up by the end of the evening.
