Pinspired – Halloween Edition (and GIVEAWAY reminder)

I went looking for food ideas for Halloween. I pinned them. Then, instead of forgetting all about them and opening some chips and goldfish crackers, I tried them. Two worked great. One, not so much. (Um, mostly because I didn’t follow the directions…) They Do: Yummy Mummies: MommyDo: REALLY Yummy Mummies: They Do: Scary Ghost Pizza: MommyDo: Scary-How-These-Don’t-Look-Like-Ghosts Pizza: They Do: Halloween Puppy Chow Mommy Do: Halloween Puppies-are-a-Mom’s-Best-Friend Chow So three recipes.

Peppermint Patties Servings: about 8 dozen Serving Size: Nutrition: See Below Prep Time: 20 Minutes…
