And although I don't feel the usual butterflies in my belly about the whole thing this year, I am still pretty excited.
I have always been more a fan of the grim and creepy -- so Halloween is sort of my thing. It gives me a chance to feel a bit LESS weird than I usually do about regularly adorning my room with skulls, skeletons and all things Nightmare Before Christmas.
On the Halloween roster this year I have: Nightmare Before Christmas (a-duh!), Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, ParaNorman, The Conjuring, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and maybe Coraline.
I don't know if I will get to them all but I sure hope so!
Halloween is obviously about candy and chocolate and all things creepy and delicious. If you are throwing a Halloween party why not include some of these?! I mean...it may off-set some of those late night mini-snickers bar binges. Does anyone else tell themselves that the mini versions are like 1/10th of the calories even though they're really not?! Hehe
On a side note: a lovely reader actually made these and said everyone at her party LOVED them -- so that's an option too!
|Creamy, citrus HEAVEN with a protein kick ;)|
|I coloured these green for fun but you can make any colour cake you would like!|
|Fudgey Brownies topped with a spooky pumpkin patch!|
|No party is complete without pumpkin! Cut out ghosts for the top instead for a fun spooky twist!|
|These delightfully green donuts are so cute! Decorate them any way you want!|
|One of my favourites. These protein squares are for the chocolate fudge lovers!|
Alright! Well that's a start. Fill up a dessert table with treats cut to size. Mini versions are fun to carry around. It makes it easier to jam in your mouth so you flee from ghosts!
I think a big bowl of blood (cranberry juce or sangria), monster juice (anything green) or a number of drinks would pair nicely with these little treats.
Are you ready for Halloween? I can't wait to put together my very....interesting costume!
Happy Healthy Halloween!
