Halloween Treats Candy Witch Fingers

I’m a big fan of the green witch from The Wizard of Oz! When I think of Halloween my mind always goes to her fabulous green face and long boney fingers that seem to wrap endlessly around everything they touch. I had those fingers in mind when I dreamed up these green apple Jolly Rancher® Halloween treats!

The pucker of green apple paired with the glorious green make these the perfect Halloween treat! I just love how translucent they are, almost glowing, as they wait patiently on the plate.

They are so simple to make!! I used this Wilton Fingers Non-Stick Pan to make my witch fingers. Any local craft store should have some kind of finger shaped pan in the seasonal section if you don’t already have one. Just spray the pan with a non-stick spray, unwrap the candy, and place 3 candies in each finger (don’t overfill, they will bubble over).  Pop them in the oven for about 6-8 minutes and that’s it! I gave my witch fingers a candy melt manicure which was also super easy! Just melt some red (or any color you desire) candy melts and paint it on with a clean paint brush.

Halloween Decorations :: Cameo Pumpkins

These cameo pumpkins are an easy and elegant way to decorate your home for Halloween. They take minutes to put together but will give your home a sophisticated spooky look that will last throughout the season.

Decorate your Halloween Pumpkins with Cameos

 

I have adored and collected cameo jewelry whilst antiquing for years now. I am so drawn to the creamy white silhouettes framed in smooth black backgrounds. Each cameo seems to have its very own story and I just can’t help myself when I come across one that speaks to me. My husband always smiles and laughs and asks me what I’ll do with yet another cameo and now I have an answer! I’ll make cameo pumpkins with them!

I used white pumpkins so that the cameos would stand out but you easily paint orange pumpkins white.

I hung my pendant cameos with a straight pin and the brooches and earrings just pushed right in on their own.

If you don’t happen to have a cameo collection then you need to get started! Just kidding.

No, seriously, if you don’t have any cameos you can actually find some in craft stores that are inexpensive and easy to get! I actually found this one below at Hobby Lobby!

Halloween Drinks For Kids :: Kiddie Cocktail Bar

You wouldn’t believe how easy and fun it is to put together a kiddie cocktail bar for Halloween. Enchant the children with Halloween drinks served in glass science beakers, that actually foam & froth as they create their very own spooky concoction.

Halloween Drinks For Kids Kiddie Cocktail Bar

Kiddie Cocktails have always held a sweet spot in my heart. It all started with my beloved grandmother, who would make sleepovers at her house a festive and fabulous occasion. As my sister and I would lounge in a bubble bath with bubbles so high they practically touched the sky, my grandmother would prepare special snacks and kiddie cocktails in fancy-fish etched glasses downstairs. As we sashayed down the stairs all squeaky clean in our pink nightgowns for an evening of Lawrence Welk, she would serve us our semi-adult refreshments and as we sipped happily our evening would begin. Those were the days.

However… these Halloween drinks that are inspired by the cherry-juice-mixed-with-lemon-lime-soda kiddie cocktail, are so much more fun and fabulous! (Sorry grandmother!)

It all begins with some packets of Kool-Aid®.

That are added to some lemon-lime soda.

Causing instant color not to mention a bubbling and foaming reaction that no doubt would make Dr. Jeckyl grin mischievously from ear to ear. A quick swirl of a straw makes the bubbles even more intense.

These Halloween drinks are positively concoction like!

Talk about a squeal inducing experience! Even my 2 teenage daughters found glee in the Halloween drink making.

I added some sugar to the Kool-Aid packets when setting up my kiddie cocktail bar to make the flavor a bit less intense. Interestingly enough, the Kool-Aid powder doesn’t have much color until it mixes with the liquid, adding yet another surprising delight to its drinkers.

I’ve found that the little Halloween drink makers enjoy experimenting with more than one of the flavors and colors. As they should. That’s the whole point right? The color/flavor combination possibilities are endless!

A bowl full of gummy worms is a must for this spooky Halloween kiddie cocktail bar.

Halloween Drinks For Kids Kiddie Cocktail BarSupplies for setting up a kiddie cocktail bar :

  • 0.14 ounce packets of Kool-Aid (variety of flavors)
  • sugar
  • lemon-lime soda
  • black and white striped straws (or any fun Halloween color)
  • gummy worms
  • science beakers

You can find some darling glass beakers here if you don’t already have some.

On a side note, you can always make these adult version by adding a jigger of vodka or gin. Or here’s another adult idea, click for the Monster Melon Martini Recipe.

And there you go. Science meets Halloween in a totally delightfully delicious experience, with an experiment-like adventure.

Happy concoction making!
