While your children might know what they want to dress up as for Halloween, you might be at a loss for festive party ideas. The Seversons have tested out some tasty treats that are as cute as they are flavorful.
Larisa, with a bit of help from her children, Natasha and Alex, put together a variety of options. The first is a beady-eyed spider made from a miniature donut, pretzel pieces and edible eyes that Larisa found on the Internet.
Next, they used the same eyes on a Nutter Butter that was covered in frosting made to look like a ghost. Larisa then placed them in an orange container filled with Reese’s Pieces to make it look like a little ghost cemetery.
On the more savory side, we have a plate filled with broomsticks made from cheese sticks and pretzels. For broomsticks, Larisa cut up string cheese sticks and then peeled apart the bottom.
Also on the plate are pumpkins that are tangerines with a bit of celery for the stem and bananas with chocolate chips for eyes and a nose.
Another snack they made to resemble a broomstick was miniature Reese’s turned upside down with a pretzel for the handle. Added to that plate are upside down fudge stripe cookies with a
Hershey’s kiss on top and orange frosting to hold it there.
The final fun treat the Seversons made are pudding cups topped with chopped Oreos, a pumpkin candy and marshmallow ghost.
