Every month I have a reward party for students that show good behavior for the entire month. For October we hosted a Little Monsters Halloween party for the lucky students. I had so much fun making the treats for the party and the kids loved them. They couldn't believe everything we had made for them!
8 oz cream cheese (I used ⅓ less fat)
2 c. powdered sugar
2 t. vanilla
18 oz. White Almond Bark
2 c. mini pretzels, broken into pieces
1 c. candy corn
1. Line a 9 inch square pan with 2 sheets of parchment paper, leaving some hanging over the edges.
2. Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar in the bowl until smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and top with the candy corn. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
5. Remove from refrigerator and transfer the fudge to a cutting board using the parchment paper to pick it up. Cut the fudge into 1 inch pieces and place in mini cupcake liners.
30 large marshmallows
10 oz. milk chocolate
2 packages Pringles Stix
1. Melt 1 oz. of the milk chocolate in the microwave. Dip each Pringles Stix into the chocolate then stick the dipped end into the marshmallow.
2. Lay a sheet of waxed paper on the kitchen table. Put the sprinkles in a shallow dish.
3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, checking every 30 seconds to see if it is melted. Remove from the microwave and stir well.
4. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate letting the excess drip off. Roll the marshmallow in the sprinkles and set on waxed paper to dry.
5. Remove the marshmallow pops from the waxed paper and place on a serving dish.
Finally, the Monster Mash Mix was an easy and fun activity for the kids to help with. The day before I popped kettle corn and drizzled it with orange and black chocolate. The kids got to put the popcorn in a Halloween bag and then add in a variety of items including M and M's, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, candy corn, candy corn pumpkins, red hots, and Skittles. We put a twist tie on the bags and had the kids take the Monster Mash Mix home to share with their parents.
The kids had a great time and did Kristin and I. It was so nice to be able to enjoy time talking and having fun with our students without having to worry about getting work done. We've already begun planning for our Thanksgiving party but if you have any ideas, leave me a comment letting me know!
