Halloween Party Food: Cute Monsters

By  | Last Updated:  

Do you let your kids play with their food? I know some families have strict rules about table etiquette. Sam has such an imagination, I think it would be almost impossible for me to keep him from playing with food. He isn’t rude at all, it’s just that all objects, including many food items, readily morph into something else in his imaginative world. I decided my goal is to teach him manners, but not squelch his creative thinking. We’ve had many entertaining moments together in the kitchen. If you need a fun kids’ Halloween party food idea, we have one for you: chocolate pretzel-sandwich crackers-gonna eat ya-monsters!

Halloween Party Food: Cute Monsters

It was snack time and we started with a package of Horizon Organic Peanut Butter Crackers and chocolate pretzels. Then out came the candy google eyes (always a kitchen staple in our house), some left-over chocolate fudge frosting, nuts and colored licorice sticks.

How to Make Pretzel Monsters

One thing was stacked on another and then we decided the chocolate frosting would make everything hold together better. That might have been my idea. Oh yum, yes it was. I cut up a few pieces of the licorice and let Sam create ears, noses and mouths.

Monster Party Food

Before we knew it, we had an awesome array of cute monsters ready to party. And wouldn’t you know it—these little guys disappear in a chomp and they play very nicely with a tall, cool glass of milk. Also Horizon Organic, of course.

Monster Party Food Idea

Sam insisted these monsters would feel safer and they wouldn’t disappear too quickly if they could see bigger monsters hanging around. That was his ploy for wearing his Halloween costume already. I didn’t agree with his reasoning, however. While he was in his room getting his costume on, the Cookie Monster came and a few of the monsters actually disappeared. Sam didn’t believe me when I said I didn’t know what happened to them. I think the chocolate frosting on my lip gave it away.

Or maybe it was my smile.

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
