Hey there BOO-tiful!
Today’s post is so exciting because it involves two of my favorite things: Halloween and food!!!!!
I’m teaming up with a locally owned party supply shop, The Party Studio, for this post, and their stuff could not be any cuter! They have all the party supplies that you would ever need to throw literally any kind of party! From birthday parties, Hawaiian Luau themed parties, baby showers, Christmas parties, and everything else in between, they have all the things you need to make the party a smash!!!
If you didn’t know, I have always loved to cook and bake, and one of my favorite things to do is to create themed foods for holidays! A few years back I created a Halloween themed food post on my blog, and posted the recipes to my Pinterest, so if you’re interested in checking that out you can click this link right here! I used some of the same idea I used in that post a few years ago in today’s post, because I just think they are so fun, so cute and really really simple, which is great if you are actually trying to make any of these treats for actual Halloween night! Quick and cute? Yes please!
Most of these recipes include using store bought, already made ingredients and just require some putting together and makin’ something spooky!! So you do not need to be some amazing baker or talented chef or even an amazing party thrower to create what I created, it just takes a little bit of time and a whole lot of cute party pieces from The Party Studio!!
All the information and recipes for the treats will be at the bottom of this blog post!
A few of the items I used as the centerpiece I already owned, and a lot of them came from the target dollarspot over the years or from craft stores, which makes it super inexpensive!
The Party Studio supplies are super affordable, especially for the quality and uniqueness that you’re getting! The Party Studio has a bunch of stuff for Thanksgiving and Christmas too, so be sure to follow them on Instagram to see those pieces so that you can create your own goodness for your holiday parties!
I definitely do not have all of their Halloween pieces from their collection, so be sure to check out everything else they have to offer for Halloween.
One of my favorite parts about this look definitely has to be the glitter bats, I just think they are so cute and add so much to the wall! They do offer both black bats and baby pink bats! I also love the way the bats look with the “Hey Boo” sign because they’re both the same black glitter material! Both of these pieces are under $10 a piece.
The Party Studio offers a variety of cupcake toppers and cake toppers, I have the glittery pumpkin toppers in my cupcakes, but they also had jack-o’-lantern faces and bats! My cake topper says “Trick-or-Treat” but they also have a few other options as well, and the cake toppers are less than $9!
I paired their black and white buffalo check plates with their “Halloween Icons” napkins for dinner, and also had their “Boo” napkins for the cupcakes! The “Halloween Icon” napkins are so fun because they have a little bit of a shimmery, holographic detail!!
I added a little bit of their “Boo” confetti to the table just to tie all of the colors in together! And I also love the little touches of pink here and there, and how the “Pumpkin Spice Garland” really helps tie all of that in as well!
I just love how it all came together, I think it’s so fun! And The Party Studio made it so easy! I can’t wait to shop their Thanksgiving and Christmas lines! You can use the code CLAIRE15 to save 15% on your purchase!!!

Monster Cake Mix Cookies
1 box White Cake Mix (or Funfetti)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
And that’s it, folks.
I 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! The little eyes are made of sugar and I bought mine from Target.
Hot Dog Mummies
Legit so easy, and if you’re a hot dog gal like myself, then so yummy too!!
1 package of your preferred hot dog brand
1 can of crescent rolls
I cut the dough into stripes after I’ve pressed it all into to one sheet, and then you just wrap each hot dog. Place on baking sheet and bake according to the crescent roll package.
FrankenGuac N Chips
You can make guacamole however you like to, but I just keep it pretty simple.
I just use avocados, clearly, and then I add salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder to taste! I added a touch of green food coloring just to amp up the color for this fun, bright post!
I served the Frankenstein guacamole with blue corn chips, and I also used them to make his hair and eyes, and added black beans for the rest of his face!
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes + Cake
These are seriously so easy! I am a huge advocate of spicing up pre-made mixes to cut down on time!
For the pumpkin spice batter you can do 1 of 2 things!
One way to do it is to literally just mix:
1 box of spice cake mix
1 can of pumpkin
A few dashes of pumpkin pie spice & voilé!!!
You can add vanilla to the batter to jazz it up a little!
The method I used this time was the pre-made “Libby Pumpkin Bread Kit,” and it comes with a can of pumpkin and a mix packet. You’re supposed to just mix the pumpkin puree with the mix, and add in water, oil, and eggs! But I halved the water for apple cider, added vanilla, and used butter instead of oil! It was MUCH richer and tasted very homemade!
The icing is just a basic cream cheese frosting dyed purple!
For mine I used:
1 stick of softened butter
1 stick of softened cream cheese
A dash of vanilla
4-5 cups of powdered sugar (this’ll depend on the consistency you’re going for!)
Purple food coloring
Just whip the butter and cream cheese together ’til well incorporated and fluffy. Add in vanilla. Slowly add in powdered sugar and mix until all lumps are gone! If the icing is too thick, slowly add in milk until it loosens again!
Salted Caramel Kettle BOOcorn
I LOVE POPCORN!!!!
I love to mix salty & sweet!! And girl, do I love chocolate, caramel, and popcorn together!!
This is so easy and can be easily done with store-bought popcorn, but I did make my kettle corn with our Stir Crazy Popcorn maker!
Stir Crazy (or any kind of) Popcorn Maker
1 tbsp. of vegetable oil
1/3 cup of corn kernels
1 tbsp. of butter
2 tbsp. of granulated sugar
Any candy bar(s) of your choosing
Spread the oil and corn kernels evenly in the base of the popper. (The ratios will change depending on how much popcorn you want to make!)
Add 2 tbsp. of granulated sugar evenly across the kernels in the base (You can add more if you want it to be sweeter!)
Add 1 tbsp. of butter to the butter-melting well on the top of the popper
Let it pop, girl!
Once it’s cool enough to touch, flip it out into serving bowl!
I melted down some caramels and drizzled it across the popcorn, then I added in the Halloween candies! I used candy corn and Ghirardelli caramel chocolate pieces!
I finished it off with a few twists of freshly ground sea salt!
I absolutely love the combo of the sea salt + caramel + popcorn! AH!!
Thanks for stopping by!
