Halloween Treats | Hip n Creative

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!

DIY Studded Pumpkin Fall Decor

I love fall!  I love wearing cozy sweaters, cute boots and decorating my home for the cooler season.  I don’t know what it is about this season that just brings a dorky smile to my face!  (To be honest I love all seasons for different reasons -yes that rhymed lol) <– see dork!

Anywho I’ve been on a search to find items to decorate my home with for the fall season.  I wanted items that I would love for a long time, are super easy to make and won’t cost an arm and a leg.  I came across these orange pumpkins from the Dollar Tree and decided to buy them and see what I come up with at home. You may remember these pumpkins from a Dollar Tree Haul I did a few weeks ago.

Inspiration struck me while I was out one day and noticed a huge pumpkin with studs all over it.  I decided to give it a try and this is what I ended up with:

Not too shabby, eh?  I think they look so cute and go perfectly with my living room decor.  Below I just have them sitting on a candle stick from the Dollar Tree that I had from a few years ago.

To make your own you will need the following supplies:

  • foam pumpkins (from the dollar tree or craft store)
  • glitter
  • mod podge or school glue
  • craft paint (in color you prefer)
  • thumb tacks (i got mine from the dollar tree)
  • paint brush
  • foam brush

Instructions:

Using your foam brush paint your pumpkins and allow to dry.  You may need a few coats of paint to really whiten your pumpkin.  I did three coats, allowing for drying time in between.  It took me a total of 30 minutes for the paint to completely dry.

Next grab your mod podge (or glue) and dab a little of the glue to the stem of the pumpkin and add your glitter.  If your using mod podge, you may need to work quickly before it dries and in a ventilated area.  The smell is very strong and may get you sick.

And there you have it folks.  A nice inexpensive fall room decor.  This is a super simple craft project you can do while you’re watching TV or maybe get your kids involved!  I think they’d love it!

Until soon my friends!
