Halloween Themed Snack Ideas

Being a diabetic I have a love/hate relationship with Halloween. There is so much food that I should never have, but I eat it anyway. So, today I am bringing you a few Halloween snack ideas that I enjoy to chow down on or I think could be good to eat. Let's get to it!

1. Mummy- Wrapped Brie
Who doesn't love brie? I have not tried this one yet, but I would love to. It keeps coming up on my Facebook Newsfeed and it looks so good! I think this could be perfect for a Halloween themed movie party with friends or just to have with family. The recipe is over at this link.

2. Shortbread Cookies
This one I have made. Take your favourite shortbread cookie recipe and this icing recipe paired with some Halloween cookie cutters and you can have your own ghost and pumpkin cookies that taste awesome!

3. Halloween Themed Pretzels
These are super easy. Take white melted chocolate, and add a bit of orange food colouring to it. Dip your pretzels in and sprinkle with some Halloween coloured sprinkles. Super easy and very good.

4. Halloween Cake Pops
Again, this one is just making some cake pops and decorating them Halloween themed, like Frankenstein, mummies, zombies, you name it. This is yours to create!

5. Candy Apples
What's Halloween without candy apples? You can make a few or a lot. Meltdown a lot of caramel and dip your apples in it. Before the caramel dries sprinkle some candy on it and let it set in the fridge for an hour or two. So, good and lasts a while.

I hope you have enjoyed all these ideas. If you're having a Halloween Party tweet me your Halloween themed snacks! I would love to see them.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!

First Month of Running Two Blogs

It has certainly been a busy month. Between work, blogs, and life it has been pretty crazy around here. Although crazy, it has certainly flown by and I feel so productive and inspired when it comes to my content creation. Writing a post or two a day has become my new schedule, and another day or two a week is for all the pictures.
In all, it's been busy. Would I change it? No way. I have also had a business idea blossom this month. More of that to follow in a number of months if it amounts to anything.

So, there are a few things I have learned over this last month:

1. Organization is key.
2. Write/Plan ahead of time.
3. Get in the spirit earlier.
4. Plan out your photography
5. Scheduling is a must.
6. Tweet scheduling is oh so important.

Most of my extra time now is going towards blogging and blogging related activities such as getting involved with chats and connecting with fellow bloggers. Thanks to it all I have been feeling very inspired and more positive. Let's hope I can keep this going. I already have a lot of posts planned for the following months and I will be participating in Blogmas here! I'm super excited for that since Christmas is my favourite time of the year.

If you're new here and are wondering about the second blog you can visit that over at www.dashofconfidence.com. I post every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday over there.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Non-Scary Movies to get you in the Halloween Spirit

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year; minus a lot of scary movie trailers on YouTube videos. For someone who enjoys Halloween and decorations, I absolutely hate scary movies. If you also hate scary movies, you may be thinking, "what movies can I possibly watch?" Well, I have gone ahead and made a list of some non-scary Halloween themed movies. Let's get to it, shall we?

1. Alvin and the Chipmunks.

There are two Halloween Alvin and the Chipmunks movies that were played every year, whilst I was growing up; Alvin and the Chipmunks meet the Wolfman, and Alvin and the Chipmunks meet Frankenstein. They came out in the late 90's and it would never feel like Halloween without them.

2. The Halloween Town Movies.

Absolute Perfection. Do I really need to explain how perfect these are for Halloween? Except for return to Halloween Town, because really who replaces the main character in a movie sequel?

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Is it a Halloween or Christmas movie? I'm sure this may cause a big debate with some people. I like to say both or at least you can watch it from now until Christmas since that fit perfectly. Still a good classic film.

4. Corpse Bride.

I'm not going to lie this is probably my favourite Tim Burton movie. The story is perfect, the characters are awesome and the songs are very much enjoyable.

5. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

It's not Halloween without the Great Pumpkin story. This one is a huge classic and not long to watch either.

What Halloween movies do you enjoy watching? Let me know in the comments below!
