This is Halloween: Tricks & Treats

Trick or Treat

Boys and girls of every age,
Wouldn´t you like to see something strange?
Come with me and you will see…

That’s right, I have The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack playing in the background as I write this.

I took a little break from work, unpacking (yes, I moved and it’s been insanely chaotic) & cleaning to do a little Halloween brainstorming. 

It’s no surprise that I love Halloween. The costumes, the decorations, the candy… did I say candy yet? Oh yea… candy. This year, I didn’t have a chance to go all out with my decorations, so I want to make up for lost time and bake a TON of goodies for my Halloween Parties this Friday & Saturday.

I found a ton of inspiration on Pinterest, you can check out my board here! I’ve added a ton of recipes, decorating ideas & last minute fun. I also have another board filled with last minute Halloween Costume ideas if you’re feeling uninspired or just procrastinated!

Here are a few of the recipes I found that I can’t wait to try out!

Marshmallow Mummy Pops 



  • Jumbo Marshmallows 
  • 1/4 – 1/2 pound white melting chocolate 
  • Lollipop sticks 
  • Candy eyes 
  • Piping gel 
  • Small paint brush
  • Ribbon pipping tip
  • Styrofoam block


  1. Use piping gel and a small paint brush to glue a pair of eyes to each jumbo marshmallow. Set aside and let dry. 
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until completely melted. 
  3. Dip lollipop sticks into melted chocolate and then into the bottom of all the marshmallows. 
  4. Prepare a pipping bag with a ribbon tip. Fill bag with white chocolate (a little bit at a time).
