Just a few more days until all the little ghouls and ghosts come out to trick or treat! Halloween is one of those holidays that was made awesome again after having kids. I am not the biggest fan of Halloween, mainly because I don't like dressing up, but I like dressing my kids up, and I also love going to haunted houses to get scared!
Now that I have little ones I love to do little activities with them before Halloween. Last year we did a Spooky Halloween Tree Craft, the kids loved doing that. This year we were able to have lots of Halloween fun at Disneyland, they transform the whole park and California Adventure into Halloween themed. Most of the characters were dressed up in Halloween themed outfits and they transformed the Haunted Manson to be The Nightmare Before Christmas themed. At night what was cool is they had spooky music and fun monster songs playing on the speakers. Disneyland made Halloween more fun this year for me.
Isn't Mickey just the cutest in his little suit! We loved it so much!
If you are looking for a super easy treat to make with your family that is Halloween themed and can get the kiddos involved here is the perfect treat.
Halloween Candy Bark
2 cups of thinly chopped white chocolate, or 2 cups of white chocolate melting chips
1/4 cup of orange decorating sugar
black decorating edible sparkle gel
various Halloween candy, we used candy corn, sugar pumpkins, jelly beans and gummies
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate at 40 second intervals till it is barley melted. Then stir it with a spoon and let the residual heat melt the rest of the chocolate.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, pour the white chocolate onto the parchment paper. Smooth out the chocolate into every corner with a flat spatula.
Get the kids to help distribute the candies all over the chocolate. Sprinkle the sugar all over the top. Then take the black gel and drizzle all over the bark.
Allow to harder over a few hours, then break it apart with either your hands or with a knife.
Store in a air tight container in the pantry and enjoy.
Little hands often like to sneak candies while making treats, I guess that is the whole point of helping mommy!
How you all getting ready to get your scare on this week? Do you have fun Halloween traditions that you do every year?
A little about me
