Hip 'n Creative | Halloween Treats

The first treat I share with you are these Bloody Bandages.  What you will need for this recipe is:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Vanilla Icing (or if you prefer you can use Marshmallow fluff)
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Corn Syrup

Ok so the first thing your gonna do is snap the graham crackers in half then in half again (use the lines on the crackers as a guide).  Next, your going to add a dab of the vanilla icing to the center of the cracker.  Last you add the “blood”.  To make the blood you just need a few ounces of corn syrup and red food coloring.  Mix it together and that’s it!  You have your blood.

To make the Mummy Cookies, you will need:

  • Milano Cookies
  • White Chocolate Morsels
  • Black Gel Food Coloring

To make these super easy Mummy Cookies: First your going to melt your chocolates.  Next your going to take you cookies and dunk them in the chocolate and lay them on wax paper.  Allow the cookies to dry a bit before adding your eyes with the gel food coloring.  Last  drizzle the rest of the melted chocolate in a zig zag pattern and you’re done!  Boom!

The final treat is the Screaming Pretzels.  You will need some:

  • melting chocolates
  • pretzels
  • candy eyes

Just like you did for the mummy pretzels.  You’ll melt your chocolate in the microwave.  Next dip your pretzels in the chocolate and lightly shake off the excess.  And last with your utensil add a dab of chocolate to the pockets of the pretzels and add your eyes.  That’s it, you are done!!

Halloween Monster Eye Treats Recipe

Halloween Monster TreatsHalloween is just a few weeks away and here at casa de HNC we are on full Halloween mode!  One of my favorite things to do is watch halloween themed movies with my family.  While we watch our movies we also have some fun Halloween themed snacks.  One of the snacks I made this year was the ‘spooky’ Halloween Monster Eye Treats.  This is a super fun and super easy recipe and the kids loved it!

For this recipe you will need the following:

  • Pudding Mix
  • Milk (for pudding mix)
  • Nilla wafers
  • crushed oreos
  • Mini oreos – split in half
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Gummy Worms (optional)

First thing we need to do is in a microwave, melt chocolate chips for about 30 seconds or until soft.  Next, dip your Nilla wafers onto the melted chocolate and set on a wax paper, adding half of the mini oreos per wafer.  Once you have your desired amount, set aside in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

While waiting for the eyes to set, prepare pudding mix according to package directions.  Mine called for 3 cups of milk and a box of pudding mix.  Whisk together until combined and set aside.

Next I drizzled melted chocolate on the rim of my glass (you can use plastic cups) and dipped the rim on the crushed oreos making a rim of oreos (yum!)  I also added some crushed oreos to the bottom of my glass for added texture- I mean who wouldn’t like more oreos?  At this point I added some pudding and finished off with the rest of the crushed oreos, gummy worms and last the eyes.  That’s it!  Easy right??

This was such a fun and easy recipe!  If you get a chance to make these bad boys, make sure to tag me on instagram @hipncreative!  I would love to see your work, I get a kick out of it!

How I Decorate my MAMBI Happy Planner

What’s up guys! I love love love my Happy Planner!  Over the passed 3 monthsI have become obsessed with decorating and organizing it for future use.  Ever since I decided to be a bit more organized with my day to day I find that I accomplish a lot more than I have before.  Now being totally honest with you, there are days that I am a confused mess.  I don’t always plan properly then find myself wishing I remembered the Drs appointment or that my daughter’s orchestra fee was due!

But now with my Happy Planner from Me and My Big Ideas, those forgotten days have become less -a lot less.  Now I am NOT being sponsored by them in any way (although I wish I was), I just really like them🙂  Ok so on to my happy planner decorating:  One of the things I like to do is go online an find some inspiration.  I just google what I want my theme to be or find a free planner printable on pinterest and some cute washi tape and I start decorating.  Click on the link to download my recent plan with me spread: Fox Planner Printable | Happy Planner Hipncreative

Fall Fox Cuties | Hipncreative

There’s no wrong way to decorating your planner, it really is up to you and what you think it should look like.  I leave a lot of white space on my planner because there are times when I get a last minute entry.

If you’re interested in purchasing your own planner, I suggest going to your local Michael’s or Hobby Lobby craft stores.  There are quite expensive at $30 each but you can use a 40% coupon to save some dough. Plus they also have some cute planner accessories that would go great with your Happy Planner.

Head on over to my Youtube channel where you can check out my video!  While you’re there you can also subscribe for future plan with me videos and many more videos too!

Easy and Inexpensive Windowsill Makeover | Dollar Tree DIY

I have an old kitchen.  I think it was last updated in the 1980s.  I have no true counter space, my cabinets are dingy- no matter how much I clean it, and my windowsill is a stained mess!  Every time I’d go into my kitchen I would wish to change something about it but since we’re on a budget, a kitchen remodel will not be getting done any time soon.

Super simple and inexpensive Dollar Tree Windowsill Makeover. | Hip 'n Creative

I had to do something!  Since I had recently gone to the Dollar Tree I had some shelf liner.  So I got to work adding the liner to the windowsill.  I have to say it was super duper easy and I love how beautiful my window looks now.  The best part is that my window looks great, didn’t cost me a fortune and if I decide in the future to remove the liner, all I have to do is peel it off.  I love it!

Material Needed for this Project:

  • Shelf Liner (I got mine from the Dollar Tree)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or Exacto Knife

First thing I did was clean and clear my windowsill.  Then I used my ruler and measured my window, using the scissors (or exacto knife) I cut my shelf liner according to my measurements.  I did cut the liner about a half inch larger then the measurement, just in case I made a mistake.  Lastly I rubbed the liner down on the sill, making sure to rub out any air bubbles.  And that’s it!  Another inexpensive and easy DIY you can do to improve your home.

If you’re a visual person like me, head on over to my youtube channel and check out the how to video!  It’s super easy and I love videos😉

If you decide to give it a try, I’d love to see it!  Share your mad skillz with me on instagram @hipncreative or on Facebook!


Until next time my friends!  Happy DIYing!
