A Party So Creepy-Cute, It’s Scary!

The following is a post from our sponsor, Betty Crocker.

Your little one will love every adorably alarming aspect of this monster bash, and you’ll appreciate how simple it is to whip up all the food and fun, thanks to Betty Crocker’s step-by-step tips and ideas!


A Monsterrific Menu

There’s nothing ordinary about these snacks and treats -- your party guests will gobble them up!

  • Serve mini pizza rolls (or other filled snacks) with a trio of dipping sauces and spooky eyeball-adorned toothpicks.
  • Monster Mouths -- made from apple wedges, peanut butter, mini marshmallows, and Fruit Roll-Ups -- come together in just 10 minutes.
  • A platter of Eyeball Brownie Pops (served without the sticks) looks super creepy but tastes delicious!
  • Quench little monsters’ thirst with a pitcher of Pineapple Lime Punch -- the green hue makes it look like slime! Add a gummy worm to each guest’s cup for added ick factor.
  • Create “mushroom” seats by wrapping stool seats in bright red fabric and topping with white circles cut from sheets of craft foam.

A Creeptastic Cake!

Your silly monster deserves his own Silly Monster Cake, of course. With a box of Betty Crocker cake mix, ready-made frosting, Fruit Roll-Ups, and a couple of sugar ice-cream cones, it’s scary how easy it is to make this birthday cake.

Monster-Friendly Favors

Scope out the dollar store for colorful bottles of bubbles and stretchy monster toys to fit around them. Tuck in a Fruit Roll-Up for an extra treat!
