It’s What’s For Dinner | Halloween 2017

Hi Friends & Happy Halloween!

Today’s post is a little different. If you know me personally, then you already know that I love to cook & bake, and that my idea of fun is watching the Halloween Baking Championship on the Food Network (which just ended last night 😦 but no need to fear, the Holiday Baking Championship airs next week!)

Around different holidays, I love to bake and cook accordingly, I just think it’s so fun.

Now just looking at the pictures, you’d think I either made those things for a party or for my kids, but nope. I’m 21, I don’t have kids, and I don’t party. Lol. It’s just fun to me!

This was the dinner I made for me, my boyfriend, and my brother a few nights ago, so I’d thought I’d share! And you still have time to run to the grocery to surprise the kiddos for dinner tonight! 🙂

Stuffed Jack-O-Lanterns

These are unbelievably easy and you can have fun with them! You can add to the mixture literally anything you want! If you like heat, add jalapeños! If you want cheese in your mixture, add more cheese! It’s totally up to you how you do it, just use my recipe as a guide!

Be sure to keep checking on the peppers just so they don’t get too shriveled up. Our peppers were having a hard time cooking, but they had been in for an hour, which is why the cook time is such broad spectrum! Just keep an eye on them! 🙂

Frankenstein Guacamole & Chips

For our side, we made some classic guacamole.. in the shape of Frankenstein, of course! Served with blue corn chips.

We like our Guacamole pretty simple; Avocados, salt, pepper, & garlic powder! You can add whatever you like to it though, or even a guacamole mix! Mr. Cam adds hot sauce to everything.. so that’s what you’re seeing! 🙂

And last but certainly not least, dessert.

You could go a thousand different routes with dessert, just open up Pinterest and there are 896,843,120 Halloween desserts just waiting to grace your table. But if you still haven’t nailed your pulled sugar technique or your tempered chocolate, then here’s an easy, doable recipe!

Monster Cookies

These have 3 ingredients. Well, 4 if you count the food coloring.. 6 if you count the decorations… but only 3 ingredients make the cookies themselves.

1 box White Cake Mix (or Funfetti)

2 Eggs

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

And that’s it, folks.

We split the dough into 1/3’s & placed each 1/3 ball of dough into a separate bowl, and colored each bowl a fun color! Purple, Green, and Orange. Then we added a TON of Halloween sprinkles.

Bake these guys at 375 for about 9 minutes.

Then we added the monster eyes! You can get these exact ones at Michael’s, but I have seen similar at Target, Meijer, & Hobby Lobby.

And there you have it! This is what’s for dinner tonight at your house, right? Well if it wasn’t, it is now! Happy Halloween! 🙂
