Tasty Halloween Treats with KBStyled

Halloween is such a spooktacular time of year...from the fall weather to the pumpkin patches and pumpkin carving, to the Halloween costumes and decorations, to the ghoulish tasty treats, this time of year is our families favorite and we definitely get into the Halloween spirit. Deciding on our Halloween costumes and theme is one of our favorite things to do.  We are often inspired by movie characters and we love getting creative with our personal take on each character. From fairies to pirates to zombies, we oftentimes select a friendly yet villainous character to dress up as. Making delicious Halloween treats is also something we enjoy doing as a family and our treats typically align with our costume character or theme. Halloween isn't complete without a crispy monster eyeball, a decadent Frankenstein, a slimy worm punch or a bewitching Halloween martini! Whatever inspires you throughout this holiday season, I hope you feel inspired to get festive and have a ghoulishly good time! 

Slimy Worm Punch

Surprise your kiddos this Halloween with a glass of Slimy Worm punch! This drink is so easy to make and will take no time to throw together. Invite some friends or neighbors over before trick-or-treating and serve this delicious punch to everyone!  

Green Gatorade Sprite Sweet
Sour gummy worms 
Fill a pitcher with ice, add some gummy worms in between scoops of high, and then pour equal parts of Gatorade and sprite into the pitcher. Top the punch off with more gummy worms. Serve and enjoy! Garnish with an extra worm or two and a cute Halloween straw.

Monster Eyeball Halloween Treat 
Each Halloween, I love creating a spooky Halloween dessert for the kiddos and this year I made these Monster Eyeball treats. They are ooey gooey and sure to bring creepy and delicious fun into your home.
Get your kiddos involved too and let them make these eyeballs as spooky as they’d like. Making these delicious treats is super simple and it all starts with a few simple ingredients! 
Rice krispies cereal 
Mini marshmallows 
Salted butter 
Black & green food coloring 
Candy eyes 
Red gel icing
To make both green and black monster eyeballs, you will need to separate your ingredients. For your first batch of green monster eyeballs start with melting 3 tablespoons of butter over low to medium heat and then stir in 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until well blended and the marshmallows are melted. Add a couple of drops of green food coloring to the mixture and stir until all of the marshmallow fluff is green. Then stir/fold in 3 cups of Rice Krispies cereal. Fold the mixture until well blended and then set aside on wax paper to let it cook. Repeat this process for the black monster eyeball treat. Once your mixture for both the green and black eyeballs has cooled, shape the mixture into balls. Press the candy eyes into the ball and then use red gel icing to finish decorating the monster eyeballs. 

Bewitching Halloween Martini 
This Bewitching Halloween Martini is a delicious mix of strawberry vodka, peach cranberry juice and frozen limeade…not to mention, it is a total crowd-pleaser! Hosting or heading to a Halloween party this weekend? If so, you must try this cocktail!
Jot down the ingredients and be sure to pick them up before all of your upcoming Halloween festivities! 
1/2 cup strawberry vodka 
1 1/2 cups of white peach cranberry juice 
2 tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate 
2 teaspoons of grenadine sugar + red food coloring 
ice + cocktail shaker 
sour worms as garnish if desired 
Mix the sugar with a couple of drops of red food coloring until the sugar has turned red. Wet the rim of your glass with water and twirl the glass in the sugar until the rim is coated. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and then add the vodka, peach cranberry juice, and frozen limeade concentrate. Shake this mixture until well chilled and then strain it into your martini glasses. Add the grenadine next to turn this martini into a delicious bewitching cocktail. Put sour worms into your glass for an even more spooky Halloween touch.
