Meal Planning Monday: Halloween Edition


This week’s meal planning Monday is complements of Amy from Savvy Saving Couple.

Are you a fan of zombies, pumpkins, and everything creepy? If so, you are probably like me and love Halloween time. to celebrate this time of year, I love creating spooktacular treats that make Halloween such a fun and exciting time of year. From creepy cookies to candy apples and everything in-between, I just love this time of year.

To help get you all get in the mood for Halloween, I wanted to share five of my top Halloween Desserts and sweet treats that are sure to please any little ghoul or goblin. Since easy recipes are what I am all about, these require very little work and are pretty quick to assemble.


First up are these Creepy Eyeball Cupcakes. These were actually really easy to make. You can use boxed mix and candy toppers like eyeball gumballs that can be purchased from stores like Target. Red cookie icing as blood made these gory cupcakes such a hit with the kids.


Next we have some Halloween themed Candy Apples. These are easy to make and do require a little effort but nothing too hard. Simply melt some cooking caramels over low heat and dip in freshly washed, and dried apples. Top with Halloween sprinkles, candies, or nuts and relish in a spooky treat.


Who doesn’t love the way Peeps candies look? Ok, so I might not be a huge fan of their taste, but the way they dressed up these Halloween Peeps Cupcakes are oh so spooktacular. I love the graveyard, ghosts, cats, and pumpkin Peeps which made these cupcakes ghoulishly good.


Around this time of year candy is such a fun and exciting novelty. Why not whip up a batch of this 10 Minute Creepy Bark. Made with melting chocolates, and some of my favorite Halloween toppings, this is almost fool-proof to make and it will not take much time or effort at all!


Lastly, we have these sort of adorable Baked Vanilla Mummy Donuts. They are made from a homemade vanilla cake donut batter and a small batch can be made in under 10 minutes. Some white frosting piped on with a flat cake tip and some candy eyes dress these donuts up as a wickedly good snack.

What Halloween treats will you be whipping up this year?
