Girls’ Night Halloween Goodies

I hosted book club at my house this week so of course I had to search blog land for some yummy treats to serve.  The most helpful sites were Twin Dragonfly Designs and I Heart Nap Time.  Be sure to check out these sites for even more ideas.  O.K. so here is what I made.

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips.  For the salsa, I cut up some apples, strawberries and kiwis.  I also added fresh blueberries and a bag of frozen mixed berries drained.  Lastly, I added about a Tbs. of fresh lemon juice, a Tbs. of white sugar and a Tbs. of brown sugar.  For the chips, I followed the directions on Twin Dragonfly Designs for cutting and baking tortillas and sprinkling them with cinnamon sugar.  I did have to bake mine for closer to ten minutes though to get them crispy.

Ghost Pretzel Sticks.  My girls had fun making these.

This last recipe is also from Twin Dragonfly Designs.  No Bake Oreo Cheesecake!  I like this recipe because it can be given as a party favor.  Just make it the night before and put it in some small jelly jars.

I put some cute Halloween fabric on top.  I planned to cover the metal ring with some Halloween ribbon but I ran out of time.  Oh well.

Witch Hat Cookies.  I didn’t serve these to the ladies but my girls made these later in the week for a treat.  They are super easy. Take a  Keebler Fudge Striped cookie and turn it upside down.  Add a dollop of Wilton colored frosting in the tube.  Then place a Hershey’s kiss on top.  Easy peasy!

Bat Decorations!  I saw this cute idea on Made last year and I knew I wanted to do it.  Super easy!  Just cut out some bat shapes and tape them to the wall.  They have been up for a couple of weeks and so far only a few have fallen down and we just stick them back up.

My boys really like these!
Check out my post from last year HERE to find out about Spider Snacks and Mummy Dogs!

I just had to share this picture because I thought that it was funny.  On the rare occasion we let the kids eat dinner in front of the t.v. and they love it.  Yummm hot dogs and Mac-n-Cheese what’s better than that.  Yes, my  boys are wearing costumes.
