Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love decorating the house, making fun treats, hosting parties, and all the fun trick-or-treaters! This year, Halloween falls on a Saturday so we’re planning on having a party (in addition to the 700-1000 kids we get at the front door!) so I came up with a fabulous Witches’ Brew-themed Halloween party with yummy treats for both kids and adults including my Boo-nana Pudding and Monster Toe Jam Pudding!
For the Boo-nana Pudding Go-Paks!, I picked up Mini Nilla Wafer Go-Paks! as my base. I then added 1 Vanilla Snack Pack Pudding Cup to the Go-Pak! and mixed it together. I topped it with some Reddi-wip whipped cream, and then added my frozen banana ghost. To make the frozen banana ghost, simply take your bananas, cut them in half, insert sticks (for easier dipping), place them on parchment paper and stick them in the freezer for at least 3-4 hours. When the bananas are ready, prepare your candy coating by melting it according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then dip the bananas in the white candy coating, stick on two candy eyeballs (or use two chocolate chips) and place back onto the parchment paper. When you’re done with all of them, you’re ready to stick them into the Go-Paks!
For the Monster Toe Jam Go-Paks! I picked up 5 Nabisco Nutter Butter Go-Paks! as my base. I then added 1 Butterscotch Snack Pack Pudding Cup to the Go-Pak! and mixed it together. I topped it with some whipped cream, and then added my Nutter Butter Monter Toes. To make the Nutter Butter Monster Toes, first prepare your “toenails” by slicing green or yellow gumdrops in half. Then prepare your green candy coating by melting it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Next, dip the full size Nutter Butter’s in the green candy coating, stick on gumdrop “toenail” and place the Monster Toe onto parchment paper. When you’re done with all of them, you’re ready to stick them into the Go-Paks!
For the party, I also made some Monster Popcorn and served some witches fingers (celery sticks) and cat’s tails (carrots) with some dip. And the party decor was so much fun to set-up! I started with the banner, added the witches head floral center piece, then hung three witches’ hats, a black tablecloth, then set the table with the food and some fun decor including my DIY witches’ spell books (full DIY coming soon and I will link to it here).
I came up with the idea of a Witches’ Brew party because the dessert is basically a witches’ brew with the mixing and stirring of the Go-Paks! Plus, it’s perfect for both an adult and children’s party – I don’t have kiddos, but a LOT of my friends do so I now come up with themes that appeal to both.
Let me know in the comments which recipe you’ll make!
