As you know it is Halloween on Friday. For the first time ever I am excited! I know Dexter is way to young to understand what is going on but never the less we have decided to celebrate it anyway and are having a little Halloween party for him and his cousin Ted. So far I have bought him a pumpkin outfit and not much else, the rest is getting sorted this week! I have however been looking at Halloween food recipes and the internet is inundated with some rather fabulous ideas. So today I have decided to share my favorites with you and hopefully give you some inspiration for your own Halloween celebrations.
Last year over on Boho Weddings I put together this Halloween food board, which I thought I would share with you again today.

From this Board I have decided to make these Monster Eye Cookies. Thanks to Lil Luna for the recipe
- 1 Yellow Cake Mix Box
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 8 oz. bar cream cheese softened
- 1 egg
- green food coloring
- powdered sugar
- candy eyeballs
STEP 1) Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until fluffy.
STEP 2) Mix in cake mix. Add green food coloring until it’s the color you want. I used neon green. Chill for 30 minutes.
STEP 3) Roll into balls and dip in a bowl of powdered sugar.
STEP 4) Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. While warm push eye balls into the center or all over the cookie.
