Eden Passante from Sugar & Charm is my guest contributor this week and today she has some tricks & treats for making a fun and easy Halloween breakfast. A Halloween breakfast wouldn’t be complete without something spooky. Make your own mummy cups for your boys and ghouls. And what’s Halloween without a trick? Surprise your kids with magic straws that will instantly turn their regular milk into chocolate milk! If you’d like to include a few decorations, use chalkboard placemats, hanging bats and small pumpkins for the just the right amount of  Halloween meal time fun.

Mummy Cup Directions: With a hot glue gun, glue the eye balls to the plastic cup. Then using white paper streamers, glue the bottom of the streamer to the bottom of the cup and then work your way up the plastic, covering it like a mummy, but leaving the eyeballs visible.

Eden Passante from Sugar & Charm is my guest contributor this week and today she has some tricks & treats for making a fun and easy Halloween breakfast. Find a spooky Halloween stamp you know your child will love and give stamping butter a try. Cut a cold slice of butter and then stamp the shape into the flat part. If the stamp doesn’t define the shape enough, use a knife to trace around the outline until you can see the fun ghost or pumpkin appear in the butter–another sweet detail the children will love when sitting down to eat their very special Halloween breakfast.

Eden Passante from Sugar & Charm is my guest contributor this week and today she has some tricks & treats for making a fun and easy Halloween breakfast. Give an extra special treat to your kids on Halloween day and add some pumpkin to those pancakes! Using pancake molds such as pumpkins or bats to shape the Halloween pancakes will be an extra bonus and so much fun to eat. If you don’t have any molds you can try these shapes freehand. The easiest way to fill the molds is to put the batter into a ziplock bag with the corner trimmed (like using a frosting bag). Carefully pour the batter into the mold. There’s a Pumpkin Pancake recipe below.

Pumpkin Pancakes

1 cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup milk
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions: In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, milk, butter, and egg. Add dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Whisk until just moistened, but don’t over mix–a few lumps are okay. Cook on a heated skillet rubbed with the oil until the surface of the pancake has some bubbles and a few have burst, 1-2 minutes. Then flip and cook on the other side. If you are using the pancake molds, fill a 1 gallon ziploc bag with the batter. Oil the pancake molds and place onto the hot skillet. Snip a small hole in one of the bottom corners of the bag and carefully fill the pancake mold (not too full). Let the pancake cook until you see a few bubbles burst. Gently remove the mold and then flip the pancake. Makes about 12 pancakes.

Throwing your own Monster Party? Eden has whipped up this adorable monster coloring page that can be used as either an activity to keep early guests busy or to send home with everyone after the party. But the real party favor takes the cake. Check out the adorable stuffed monsters you can make yourself. Click below to download.

To make a stuffed monster: Download, print and cut out the monster pattern. Fold the the felt material in half (so there are two sides) and pin the pattern to the felt fabric. Carefully cut around the pattern and cut a white and black circle for the eye and a thin
strip for the mouth. By hand, sew the eye and mouth onto the felt before sewing the pattern pieces together. Once the face in completely sewed on, place your two pattern pieces together, face down. Sew around the edges leaving a small hole to turn the monster inside-out. Add the stuffing using a skewer to get into the hard to reach areas. Once the monster is stuffed, sew the hole together.

Note: If youʼre sewing the green monster only sew one side of each leg before you turn the monster inside out and leave the bottom open to stuff. The legs are too skinny and will not turn inside-out if sewn on both sides. When you do turn the monster inside out, you can hand sew the other side of  the legs and the bottom hole. The legs do not need to be stuffed because they are supposed to be skinny. All fabric purchased at Joannʼs Fabric Store.

Looking for some tasty treats to serve at your Monster Party? Your party guests won’t be scared by these yummy snacks. Easy to make, we’ve provided detailed instructions for each.

Mini Monsters: A local bakery made these green macaroons and mini vanilla cupcakes with green frosting. Just add sprinkle eyes (available at Michael’s craft store) with white frosting “glue.”

Monster Munch: Dip pretzels into melted blue candy melts. Sprinkle with purple nonpareils. Let pretzels cool on parchment or wax paper in the freezer. For candy coated popcorn, place freshly popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Using the leftover melted blue candy melts, drizzle over the popcorn and mix together with a rubber scraper until all of the popcorn is coated. Serve in a paper cone for a special little treat that all monsters like to eat!

Monster Juice: For a refreshing and healthy drink, serve fresh squeezed orange juice with frozen blueberries. To embellish the cups, add an orange slice and a striped paper straw.

Monster Cookies: This fun food doubles as a party activity. Hand cut sugar cookies match the invitation. Instead of icing bags, try using squeeze bottles (from Michael’s craft store). Mix food coloring gels in white frosting until you achieve the desired color–we matched ours to the party colors. Fill each bottle with a different colored frosting for party guests to use for decorating. Let them use leftover nonpareils and sprinkle eyes as decorations.
