In case you forgot, Halloween is a week from today. My children are currently cheering in the background as they rifle through our two enormous dress up bins to figure out what they want to be this year. I remember a day long, long ago when I sewed a Halloween costume. Once. It was supposed to be a fish and my poor son ended up looking like a mutant monster from outer space which actually kind of worked since it’s Halloween after all. But even still, dress up bin costumes it is.

Today, I wanted to share with you (and remind you) of some of my favorite Halloween eats. As is tradition, we’ll be having Dinner in a Pumpkin Halloween evening and I’m pretty sure I’m going to pop a few of those creepy Jello Worms in the kids’ lunchboxes sometime next week. I still need to find time to fit in that Spider Web Cheesecake because spider web or not, it’s one of the tastiest cheesecakes ever (with a no-bake filling which is awesome) and of course the Halloween season wouldn’t be complete without decorating our own haunted houses (there’s a super easy and revolutionary tutorial on that post with how to put those graham cracker houses together); that’s happening Monday night if everyone can behave and keep themselves out of timeout. What fun spooky things will you be eating for Halloween?

    I love it when you remind us of your favorites! Those mummies are SO cute!

  2. I love all these ideas, but especially the monster pudding cups and spiderweb cheesecake! I’d take those over Halloween candy any day 🙂

    I made those monster pudding cups last year for Halloween. So adorable, even my teenage sons loved them. I guess you are never too old for Halloween and spooky food. Thanks for some great suggestions.

    We are trying the dinner in a pumpkin, mummy hot dogs, and my kids really want to try the jello worms… we’ll see! We also like to make root beer and a butterscotch caramel for apples.
    Thank you for the fun ideas!

    We are keeping up tradition with Spagetti and eyeballs-(I put a pimento stuffed olive in a meatball) and Monster Pretzels. (Small pretzels with melted white chocolate chips in the 2 “eyes” holding mini M&Ms). And yes, my favorite part of holloween is sewing
    Costumes!
