Haunted Halloween Party

It’s Throwback Thursday! I’ll finally start sharing some of my wonderful parties on my site. Super excited!

Booo! October is my favorite time of the year. The leaves are falling, the weather is starting to get a little bit crispy {let’s be real, I live in GA so it’s a slight sweatshirt in the morning but I’ll take it}, and the pumpkin spice lattes are being served. Halloween is my favoriate. Okay pretty my everything is my favorite but I have a bit of a soft spot for Halloween. Endless sugar & Costumes equals #winning in my book.

This party is all about Halloween for Adults.  Although it isn’t gory  it is just a little bit spooky. Who says adults can’t have a whimsical Halloween party too!? Check out some quick and easy recipes at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!!!

Eyeball Jello Cups

1 package of lime green jello (or any color you would like)
30 gummy eyeballs

Directions: These spooky eyeball jello cups are so easy to make and are so yummy! Mix the jello packet with water as per the measurements on the package and add 1 ounce of vodka per 8 ounces of jello mixture. For a virgin alternative just leave out the vodka. Pour into adorable little martini glasses and put in the fridge. Once the mixture solidifies add the gummy eyeball or brain or spooky gummy. Return to fridge until you are ready to serve.


Pushing Daisy Parfait Cups

2 packages of butterscotch pudding or vanilla pudding
Wilton Food Coloring Gel (in the case the Halloween Drink coloring gel)
1 Package of Oreo Cookies
1 package of chocolate chips

Directions: The thing I love about this dessert is it is super quick and so customizable. By starting out with a jello vanilla pudding as a base you can tint the jello to match your event colors. In this case, I divided the batter into 2 bowls and mixed lime green food coloring gel into one bowl and mixed orange food coloring into the other batch. Allow the pudding to set after you have achieved the color you desire. Now is the fun part, crushing Oreos! In my case, I did it by hand but you can always throw a package of Oreos into the blender and pulse until crumbled. To crush by hand, pour the cookies into a large zip lock bag and hit with a rubber mallet, To assemble, layer the pudding, chocolate chips and top off with crushed Oreos. If you have a large glass you can continue to layer until you reach the top. You could add a layer of heath bar for a toffee crunch or sprinkles. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve
