My daughter’s birthday falls in the beginning of October, and this year, she had a few girls over for dinner. This was a perfect excuse to turn a regular party into a Not so Spooky Witch Themed Halloween party, well the dessert at least.
A 14 year old has her own expectations, but Mom can create some fun things for her while she is at school and can’t complain! With a few simple ingredients, OREOs and Fanta, we created some spooky snacks, including witch hats, witch brooms and witches’ brew.
Be sure to check out the Fanta Floats we made for Halloween last year.
WHAT YOU NEED TO CREATE A NOT SO SPOOKY WITCH THEMED HALLOWEEN PARTY
While shopping at Walmart for the ingredients for her dinner, I found this package of glow-in-the-dark 2 packs of Oreos. How cute will they be when the trick-or-treaters find them glowing in their bags?
The Fanta also caught my eye, as the Orange Fanta is even labeled with a Halloween Theme! Orange Fanta is the perfect companion drink for a Spooky Halloween theme, don’t you think?
HOW TO CREATE CANDY WITCH HATS AND CANDY WITCH BROOM SNACKS
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE OREO or Cookie WITCH HATS
To create the Spooky Witches’ hats and brooms you will need
- chocolate kisses,
- orange frosting
- a few round sprinkles
Place a round blob of frosting onto the top of your OREO and top it with a chocolate kiss candy. Adorn it with a sprinkle for the front of the witches hat.
How to Make Halloween Witch’s Broomstick Treat Idea
YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE AN EDIBLE WITCH BROOMSTICK
Top a peanut butter cup with a thin pretzel stick for an edible witch’s broom. I found it easiest to carefully create a hole with a skewer before adding the pretzel stick.
These “spooky” treats are really not that spooky, making them fun to bring to a school party.
HOW TO MAKE Kid Friendly WITCHES BREW FOR YOU HALLOWEEN PARTY
For the witches’ brew, we made fake blood out of corn syrup and red food coloring. Simply mix it on a plate for easy dipping.
Dip the edges of the cup into the “blood” and allow it to drip. It will take some time to set, so be sure to do this a couple of hours before your party.
You can also create fun spooky ice cubes by filling a ice cube tray with plastic bats, skulls and whatever else you can find (these were plastic rings that we cut). Add water and freeze.
Plop a few of these into each cup, along with an “eyeball” and a Halloween straw.
You have now created the perfect tablescape for your Spooky Witch Halloween Party! The kids can even bring home a few of the Glow in the Dark OREO Cookies to eat later.
