Put the treat in trick-or-treat

I like Halloween. I like the cute, adorable, sweet side of Halloween. Forget goblins, witches and zombies, one of the best things about Halloween are the little kid costumes that make all the ladies sigh and say “How CUTE!” My favorite costume as a little girl was Rainbow Brite (really scary, I know), and my idea of a scary movie is the 1991 “Ernest Scared Stupid.” (Trust me, it’s pretty scary to a 7-year-old!)

And dare I say I’m a sucker for all that trick-or-treating chocolatey goodness! According to some very scientific internet articles, some of the most popular Halloween candies are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s Chocolate Bars, Milky Ways, Kit Kats, Snickers and Twix. Yes, please!

And according to Good Housekeeping, the top five Halloween costumes for kids this year are princess, Spider-Man, witch, pirate and a Disney princess. (I’m not sure any of those could really compete with my old school Rainbow Brite costume. C’mon, let’s be real.)

I’ve found a fun Halloween recipe for you, whether you are hanging out at home with your family or you forgot you signed up to bring 50 treats to the Halloween party at school.

I spotted lots of gross eyeball treats and bloody finger cookies, but these Frankenstein Pudding Cups from were just too cute to pass up!! You can let your kids draw their own faces on the cups, and the bright green colored pudding makes them fun to eat, too.

Happy Halloween!

Frankenstein Pudding Cups

Small plastic cups
Black marker
1 box vanilla pudding
2 cups cold milk
Green food coloring
Oreo cookies, crushed

Draw Frankenstein faces on plastic cups with a black marker. In a bowl, whisk pudding mix with two cups cold milk. Mix in green food coloring and pour into plastic cups. Place cups in refrigerator to allow pudding to set. Crush Oreo cookies and spoon on top of pudding cup. (One box of pudding will make three small Frankenstein cups.)
