Halloween Fun Idea/Blog Hop



I think I have told you..Halloween isn't just for kids!!
I have alot of fun myself during all these holidays til the
end of the year especially..Making lots of great Family
Memories/Traditions that never end..That's the
Best Part...the family memories..

Well....the above photo is my attempt to make
"Monster Eyes" which I found @ The Farm Girl
website..great blog...check it out!

Supplies to make Monster Eyes:
2 Big Marshmallows
2 Black Jelly Beans
2 Lollipop Sticks

Directions:
Take a lollipop stick end & stick it in the jelly bean
then stick it through the Big Marshmallow & put it
in the hot chocolate...Have a laugh!! The weight of
the lollipop stick helps it to not fall over so much but
it will fall over a little..depending on which way you
put the jelly beans you can give them different
personalities sorta like "Mr. Potato Head"
Has anybody seen his "angry eyes"? I love Toy Story!!!

Ouuuu these are soooo good!!! If you like Chocolate
& Peanut Butter (& who doesn't?) you'll love these
Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes w/Peanut Butter
Frosting.

I found these over at Stephanie's Kitchen...but made
several changes because I wanted to take these to a
dinner party tonite & had not planned to do
that until an hr. before I was to be there (plus
getting ready) They turned out great & surprised me
at how easy they were to make...(They look like they
took a lot of time but..they didn't..and isn't that
what we like..

They were a big hit at the party too...so FAST & EASY
Sorry the picture is blurry...


RECIPE
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix (I used Betty Crocker)
plus ingredients on back of cake pkg. (3 eggs,
oil, & water)

PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING
1/2 c. butter, at room temperature
1 c. creamy peanut butter
2 c. confectioner's sugar (sifted)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. milk (I used Fat Free & it worked out fine)
18 Small Reese's peanut butter cups (quartered)

Directions:
1) Cream the butter & peanut butter together until
smooth. SEE BELOW:


2) Add confectioner's sugar and vanilla.
SEE BELOW:

3) Slowly add one Tablespoon of milk at a time,
until you get the consistency you want.
SEE BELOW:

4) Then I put the bowl into the microwave for
about 1 min. I wanted it thick, but able to flow
down the sides of each mini cake. Then top with
quartered peanut butter cups and enjoy pure
bliss...SEE BELOW:
