I have highlighted three posts from my Cookbook that I love to use during Halloween Party time. The first is my Zombie Centerpiece. I am not talented when it comes to decorating or setting a pretty table. The truth is that I use more paper plates now than my everyday dinner plates. The Zombie is quite easy and fun to set all those bowls and plates of party food. My Kitchen Sink Bark is made with chocolate and just about any fun candy or nuts you have on hand. And last, this Pumpkin Bread can be made with that leftover jack-o-lantern meat. I love the smell of fresh baked goods. Don’t you??
A good pumpkin recipe starts with the season of the pumpkin. I used canned pumpkin here but you can certainly use fresh. Remember though that pie pumpkins are the smaller pumpkins we all use to decorate our home. This pumpkin is less starchy and does so much better in recipes. This bread is stuffed with the goodness of dried fruit and nuts. If you are a “vanilla” type of baker this recipe is still great. Enjoy!
A Zombie Centerpiece
A Zombie Centerpiece No tricks! Don’t let your centerpiece take up space. Put it to work for your party. Use this zombie to hold your buffet items. What can be better than a cool and frightening centerpiece for your party table! Your guests will be entertained, and a bit freaked out, as they fill their plates and glasses from this adorable buffet!
Kitchen Sink Halloween Bark
Kitchen Sink Halloween Bark ~Almonds, Peanut, Dark Chocolate, Candy Corn, Raisins and Marshmallows! Yep, that is pretty much the entire “must use today” pantry list! This bark is yummy and can be made in the oven or the microwave. Looking for my very own from scratch idea for a Halloween Treat I raided my pantry and this is what I found. I just added a bit of shortening to make it shine. Not quite sure how it would end up, but it was delicious. Not bad for a new recipe developer. What do you think? Please comment after the post!
