Little Foodies: Popcorn Ball Monsters

These Popcorn Ball Monsters are a very tasty and easy treat, and to make it suitable for Halloween, we’ve added little candy eyes to turn simple popcorn balls into cute monsters.  We used orange and purple sprinkles to give it a little bit of extra color, but you can add any type of sprinkles, mini candy or mini chocolates. We thought about adding mini chocolate chips to it, but since we weren’t sure how that would turn out when we incorporate them into the hot mixture. We decided to stick with the sprinkles to be safe.

Since this recipe requires some stove time, please be present at all times. Depending on the child’s age, it is your decision to let them mix on the stove, or just participate in forming the popcorn balls and adding the eyes. To glue the eyes, we melted a small amount of chocolate and used it to place the candy eyes on the shaped popcorn balls.

Halloween Collection: TFK’s Best Recipes

It’s that time again! It’s amazing how the months have passed by so quickly, and we find ourselves at the beginning of the holiday season, definitely our favorite time of the year. I’m looking forward to this holiday season, because this year I’ll get to cook more with my daughter, who is bigger now and already very active in the kitchen. For those of you who are new to our blog, you can find her recipes in the Little Foodies section.

One of our favorite holidays is Halloween, so we have gathered our favorite recipes that we have posted in the past 5 years of blogging so you can pick your favorites and try them for your own spooky party. We’ve also included our downloadable templates, and a few spooky stories from Guatemalan folklore.

Little Foodies: Chocolate Dirt Pudding Cups with Gummy Worms

Yes. We went there.

Halloween is coming soon, and we have the perfect recipe for your kids to try! This recipe was chosen by our Little Foodie, but instead of using pudding from a box we made our own using semi-sweet chocolate. Making your own chocolate pudding isn’t difficult at all, and it tastes so much better. The dirt as you already guessed is made from crumbled Oreo cookies. You can crumble them with a food processor, which is the easy way, or you can put them inside a resealable bag and give your kids a rolling-pin to pound on the cookies to form dirt. We used the food processor.

Essentially, you mix the Chocolate Dirt Pudding with some whipped cream and cookie crumbs, you add a few gummy worms on top, and finish the last layer with your cookie dirt.

Safety Alert! This recipe requires some stove time for making the pudding, so you have to be with your kid at all times. It’s up to you to decide whether they can use the stove, or if they should just be in charge of the assembly of their cups and let you make the pudding.
