Nordic Ware Great Pumpkin Pan

Nordic Ware Great Pumpkin Pan

Charlie Brown’s friend Linus strongly believed that the Great Pumpkin would emerge on Halloween night, not unlike Santa Claus at Christmas. None of his friends really shared in his conviction (for good reason, since no Great Pumpkin appeared to him), but if you find that you get as into the Halloween spirit as Linus, you can easily make a great pumpkin appear in your kitchen ...

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Cereal milk ice cream is exactly what it sounds like: ice cream that tastes like the milk that is left behind after eating a bowl full of cereal, preferably a sugary cereal. The idea was popularized at Momofuku Milk Bar, where it is made with caramelized corn flakes in milk. I don’t know about you, but as a kid I always thought that chocolate cereals ... Read More »

Candy Corn Oreo Ice Cream

They were such a huge success that they sold out of stores within a few weeks of their release and well before Halloween actually came around. I love to bake cookies n’ cream flavored desserts and am always curious to give limited edition Oreos a try to see how they ... Read More »

Williams Sonoma Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Williams-Sonoma Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays to decorate for. The decorations can be silly or spooky, as simple as placing a few candy corn on top of a cupcake or as elaborate as baking a cake in the shape of a skull. I am always on the lookout for new ways to add a little excitement to my Halloween decorations and these Williams ... Read More »
