Halloween Recipes

Our blog is titled A-Squared Adventures, because I like to blog about Aaron and I’s adventures. The main purpose for this blog is so that I can remember what those adventures were. (I am not very good at remembering things- especially post pregnancy.) At the end of every year, and by year I mean year that I have been married, I print a blog book and give it to Aaron on our anniversary. Then we get to look back on all of our adventures together that year. I highly enjoy this tradition. That is what inspires me to keep up with the blog.

Recently, very recently, like today recently I have been inspired to blog about a few things that may not make the blog book , but some of you out there, whoever you are, may be interested in anyway. Crafty things, food things, that sort of stuff. I think I will devote next week (well most of next week- I don’t know if I will blog everyday) to fun non-blog book posts.

I will go ahead and start you off with the recipes from our little Halloween get together, since Halloween comes before next week. And I have gotten A LOT of requests- emails, comments- blog and in person on how to make these. (I know I am so popular, right? haha! Actually I forget that people read this blog. Except for Honey and Carla- thanks for being my consistent commenter's :)

Now I cannot take credit for these recipes. I am really not that creative. I just like to take ideas from other peoples creativeness (is that a word? hey! at least I can make up my own words ;) –ok looked it up- already a word. dang!) Below I have listed the links to the recipes as well as the actual recipes that I used.

Mini Mummy Pizzas-


I found the recipe here.

I changed up the recipe a little. I used mini bagels instead of English muffins. I just used olives for the eyes, I did not use scallions or peppers. I sliced up pieces of mozzarella cheese instead of using a cheese stick.

Spooky Chips and Guacamole-

I found the recipe here.

I just used their idea to make the chips. I cut out witch faces, cats, ghosts, pumpkins, and bats. I did not use their guacamole recipe. I used my own, which consists of avocadoes, lime juice, onions, tomatoes, and some salt and pepper.  I guess if you want the actual step by step recipe I can come back and add that later, just let me know.

Monster Carrot Fingers-


I did not use a recipe from online for these. I did see a picture of this done somewhere. I can’t remember where though. Then I just kept it in my memory bank of easy recipes (oh look I can remember things!)
  • Bag of carrot sticks
  • Sliced almonds
  • Cream cheese
  1. Peel carrots.
  2. Slice carrot sticks down the middle. Then cut those two carrot slices in half. (Making 4 “fingers” per carrot stick)
  3. Dab cream cheese on the end of each carrot stick.
  4. Place one sliced almond(finger nail) on top of the cream cheese.
Simple, fun, delicious Halloween recipes. Enjoy!

Love those monster fingers! What a great Halloween party. And thanks for the windows live tip. Blogger frustrates me, also.

These all look like great fun. I work with Better Recipes and am always trying new holiday dishes. At Halloween, I like to roast pumpkin seeds. They are always a great hit, not only with the adults, but also with the children. Here's a simple recipe How to Cook Pumpkin Seeds

Thanks for posting. Not 4 hours after reading your blog, our friends called and said Sunday dinner was going to be finger foods. I was able to use your blog as a reference and I made those mummy pizzas. I love you're blog!!!
