From the blog “Cooking Classy,” this recipe takes less than half an hour to make. You’ll need a handful of ingredients to make these adorable Rice Krispie pumpkins, and they will surely be a hit for the whole crew. This recipe is great for kids as the actual crafting of the pumpkins is simple and does not need to be perfect- they can be as big or small as you’d like.
This easy recipe from the blog “A Pumpkin and A Princess” only requires three ingredients- though you can certainly add more to personalize it. The recipe makes up to 10 pretzel rods, but you can certainly adjust it as needed for bigger or smaller parties.
The ghosts are back, this time with marshmallows and a box of Betty Crocker brownie mix. This super simple recipe will take around three hours to make from start to finish, but that is so worth it with how cute these turn out. The recipe makes 16 total servings.
Looking for a way to graze away the holiday? This charcuterie board from “Handle the Heat” is a little bit complicated but so worth it. It has cheeses, fruits and sweets and it serves 12 people.
