10 Adorable Halloween Snack Recipes That You Need To Try

    Not only are these wee little bats super cute, they’re also unbelievable simple and versatile. So long as you have some Oreos, black card and lollipop sticks, you can use whatever you want to make the eyes! I’m lazy, so candy eyes all the way for me. Now, somebody pass the milk.

    2. Eyeball Jell-O

      This is a deliciously creepy-yet-cute dessert that’s perfect for a Halloween party. It also requires minimal ingredients (jello-o, gelatine and food dye), which always makes me happy. I like that this will work for both children’s and adult parties. Hell, I recommend slipping a little vodka in there so you can really get the party started.

      3. Fog Drinks

        If you really want to impress your party goers (whether they’re kids or not), this drink is the way to do it! Heston Blumenthal can be blamed for raising the bar when it comes to culinary concoctions, and when it means making drinks this cool looking, we should be bowing at his feet. The recipe is pretty simple for the most part – you can use any type of base liquid you like, and gummy worms are pretty simple to come by. The only issue you may have is getting your hands on some dry ice, although it’s starting to become more easily obtainable. Once again, don’t be afraid to add a cheeky nip into your own glasses, parents.

        4. Bloody Popcorn Brains

          I think I may have just found a socially acceptable way to combine my love of popcorn and NBC’s Hannibal. This tasty Halloween treat also has something else going for it – it combines both savoury and sweet flavours, which is often a winner in my hungry opinion. I think that the combination of popcorn with white chocolate and marshmallow sounds delectable. The popped corn also does really look like bloody brains, so is bound to be a hit with the kids.

          5. Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Pretzels

            Apparently I’m on a salty and sweet roll, because next up we have these adorable chocolate covered pretzels. I never really noticed how they are the perfect shape for mini pumpkin – but they are! Once again the ingredient count is relatively low, and the only slightly trickier item may be the leaf tip. I think a piping bag could also be used with icing for the greenery

            6. Oreo Owl Cupcakes

              Yep, more Oreos! These gorgeous Halloween cupcakes can be whipped up in no time for a last minute party snack. Although I’m not generally a fan of recipes that call for packet cake mix, I respect the convenience that it can lend. The great thing is that you can also use your own favourite chocolate cupcake recipe and it will work perfectly.

              7. Graveyard Pudding Cups

                Aren’t these little ghosts boo-tiful? Yeah, I said it.

                Seriously, these little guys are the epitome of cute halloween snacks. You’ll be pleased to note that the dirt involves using our old friend Oreos. Apparently these cookies own Halloween or something. If you’re not up for making your own marshmallow ghosts, you can easily buy pre-made ones.

                8. The Pear Witch Project

                  I promise that I didn’t just pick this one for the name, although it was a huge draw card. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean that everything that you eat will help to buy your dentist a new beach house. This tasty witch has the best of both worlds, as it includes both fruit and some sweet additions. Now before you say anything, I realise that the recipe calls for Oreo ice cream cones. I swear to God I’m not doing this on purpose or being paid by Nabisco. That would be awesome though. Obviously, you can choose whatever type of cone you wish!

                  9. Banana Ghosts with Tangerine Pumpkins

                    Another fruity one for the healthy people! I swear I think that these are super cute and easy! Also, it really is good to have healthy alternatives on a day that is dominated by candy.

                    10. Melted Witch Cookies

                      Fans of Wicked may not be into this one, but I thought this was a really unique and creative idea! The great thing is that you can use any basic cookie recipe, so feel free to go with your favourite!

                      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                      As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                      “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                      When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                      Advertising

                      Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                      We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

                      But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                      So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

                      It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

                      1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                      Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                      2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                      This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                      You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

                      3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                      This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                      4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                      How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

                      So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                      If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                      And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
