Last Minute Halloween Treat Ideas – Courtesy of The Bestie

I learned on Monday that The Bestie was making some Halloween treats and offered to share her photos with me to use as Halloween blog content….score!  She is quite possibly one of the busiest women I know.  Employed full time, the mom of a 7 year old and 4 year old twins, active in her community, fully engaged in her moms of multiples club….she never ceases to amaze me!  She is also one of the best moms I know – she’ll do just about anything for her children.  Although, she did tell me at one time she wouldn’t shave her head for them. 

She is the same mom who makes 3 birthday cakes in one weekend for her children since their birthdays are only 1 day apart.  You can read more about that here.

This week, she volunteered to make treats for various events….work, kids’ activities – who knows. She said yes and as always, made it happen.  While we were on the phone together at 8 p.m. Monday night while she was shopping for missing items from her pantry, we talked about ways to streamline this and make it as easy as possible on herself.  She knocked these out in no time and even took pictures along the way.  Thanks, friend!

These cute cupcakes were decorated with simple orange frosting piped on from a pastry bag and she cut a chocolate bar to decorate. 

 

She also made these Pretzel Witches Fingers.  Using pretzel sticks, green Wilton candy melts, sliced almonds, and a toothpick she made another adorable Halloween treat.

 
 

 

 

The third and final treat is by far my favorite!  Remember those Waffle Dippers I posted in 2012?  She used the pan and filled with cake batter to make these super cool mummies!  You’ll need the pan, it looks like this:

 
 
Next, get a box cake mix, pour the batter into each dipper, and bake.  Let cool, then get ready to decorate!  She used these cute large candy eyeballs from Wilton and used a #47 piping tip to add the bandages – aren’t they awesome?  You’ll want to make sure you have these on your serving platter before you start piping on the frosting – they aren’t really moveable once decorated!
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

Have you volunteered to make Halloween treats…..and made it happen even though you really didn’t have the time?
