Tuesday Has a Recipe {Haunted Cookie Cups} 9.27.10

Ok, how totally cute are these?


I was looking for a fellow blogger recipe, but I just couldn’t resist

These are Nestle Cookie Cups {Thanks 24/7 Moms} and here is the recipe!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
1 container (8 oz.) frozen light whipped topping, thawed
1 gallon-size plastic food storage bag
48 (about 1 teaspoon) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
24 (about 1 tablespoon) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Grease 24 mini-muffin cups. Place one square of cookie dough into each cup.
BAKE for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. With tip of butter knife, remove cookie cups from muffin pan. Arrange on serving platter.
FILL plastic bag with whipped topping; seal. Cut ½-inch from corner of bag. Squeeze bag lightly to pipe whipped topping on top of cookie cup to form ghost shape. Position two mini morsels as eyes and one regular size morsel as a mouth on each ghost. Serve immediately or store refrigerated for up to 2 hours.
Make Ahead Tip:
Cookie bases can be made ahead and stored covered at room temperature.
Remember to follow baking instructions before consuming.
Tomorrow I will be trying out the Pie Pops from last week. Not sure where the results will end up – I think maybe my son’s classroom teacher/s will be getting a sweet surprise! :)

Monday’s blog has something free!

Ok, it’s not quite Monday yet, but tomorrow is going to be an extra early, extra busy one for me, so here it is!

This is similar to the Halloween Luminary – it has been so popular that I decided to do another one! This one is a jack-o-lantern luminary. There is a face on the front/back and another face on the sides. I added a bottom to this one because some people expressed an interest in using these as a treat bag. Sorry I don’t have a physical pic of this because I rushed to get it up for Freebie Monday!

Here are the images of the front and sides though!



Don’t forget, there is a half price coupon right now through Friday, 9/24 for all orders of $15.00 or more. It basically gives you any full tablescape for only $7.50 – 50% off!! There are no exclusions, so even Party {in a box} is on sale.

Coupon code is FALL12010. Enter at checkout!

Also, if you missed Feature Friday, leave a link to your page (blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and follow us on Facebook to be entered to win our Trick or Treat Halloween Tablescape as a free giveaway! This link party is open until Thursday, 9/23.

Wednesday’s Blog Has Party Tips 9.15.10

Here’s a great party planning timeline from Birthday in a Box!

But first, here’s a great Halloween craft from fellow blogger Emilie at Not So Idle Hands {via Bloggers Megan and Steph at Crazy Domestic}.

They are jar jack-o-lanterns {or monsters, or anything else you like}!

So cute! Tutorials are at both links above. These will look great in my window this year! I’m thinking I might try to make witches – they are, after all, the angels of Halloween.

Anywho – here’s the party planning timeline for those of you {like me} who love lists!

You are planning a party and want it to be one-of-a-kind, but are unsure where to start. We want to help! The following is a general timeline to get you started. Feel free to follow it exactly, or tweak it to fit the unique personality of the guest of honor!


6 to 8 Weeks Before the Party
Select a date, time and location for the party.
Decide on the number of guests and develop a guest list.
If desired, call to book an entertainer, such as a clown or magician, to occupy children at the party.
Choose a theme for the party.
If you want personalized invitations, place the order so that they arrive at least 3 weeks before the party.

3 to 4 Weeks Before the Party
Prepare invitations and mail or hand-deliver them.
Put your guest list near the phone so you can easily record responses as invitees call to RSVP.
Shop for party supplies.
Ask a favorite babysitter, friend or relative to help out at the party.

2 to 3 Weeks Before the Party
Select 3 – 6 activities to entertain children at the party.
Purchase any supplies needed for the activities you selected.
If serving a meal, decide on the menu.
Order a cake (unless you plan to bake one).

1 Week Ahead
Call any invitees who have not responded.
Decide on the agenda for the party, including the order of your selected activities, what time you want to serve food and/or cake, and if it’s a birthday party, when the birthday boy or girl will open presents.
Try any games or activities with which you are unfamiliar.

2 to 3 Days Ahead
Purchase groceries or any pre-prepared food you plan to serve.
Put the favor bags together.
Charge your video camera and/or put fresh batteries in your regular or digital camera.
Prepare any crafts that can be set up ahead of time.
Bake any cookies or treats that can be made ahead.

The Day Before the Party
Clean the party area. Put away items that may be dangerous or distracting.
Bake or pick up the cake.
If ordering food such as pizza, call to arrange a delivery time.
If necessary, confirm with the entertainer and/or any helpers who you’ve asked to attend.
Sit down with your child and discuss his or her expectations for the next day.

4 to 5 Hours Ahead
Set the table and decorate.
If you are planning a birthday party, put the candles on the cake and place matches nearby.
Get balloons filled/pick up pre-filled latex or Mylar balloons.
If you’re having the party at home, tie some balloons to the mailbox or the front porch to help mark the party location.
Place crafts and prizes near the activity location(s).
Locate paper and a pencil for recording gifts (for thank-you notes).

1 to 2 Hours Ahead
Consider putting your pets in an area away from guests.
Get the birthday boy or girl and all siblings dressed for the party.
Set up the first activity.
Set up the food.
