Halloween BOO ‘Mores Bar

The weather is FINALLY starting to cool down around these parts, which means I can finally start thinking about fall! Hooray! I know most people associate pumpkin spiced everything with fall, but for me. . . I think about my unhealthy relationship with s’mores. I’ll eat them anyway I can get them. . . and now that the Peeps people have made adorable Peep marshmallows available for every holiday, you know I am all over this. So, I created this super simple Halloween BOO ‘Mores Bar, perfect for a Halloween Party, play date, or even trick-or-treaters!

I used a black plastic table cloth, and a tassel banner I already had from Mod Party to dress up a small table. Tassel banners are such a great way to decorate and they are super simple to make yourself.

Chalkboards are also great for party decorating. You can use them over and over again and write fun messages or sayings on them for different holidays and occasions.

I put ghost and tombstone Peeps on candy sticks and stuck them in black plastic planting pots from the Dollar Tree store to add some dimension to the table. I also use wire baskets to add to the table depth and just flipped them upside down on the table.

Finally, I displayed graham crackers and chocolate in cute cupcake liners on white platters, ready for kiddos and adults to make a delicious marshmallow sandwich. My intention is for these to be eaten “as-is,” but you could certainly toast the marshmallow Peeps first like a traditional S’more.

This inexpensive Boo ‘Mores Bar would be the perfect addition to your Halloween celebrations.

S’mores Chocolate Malt Custard Cookie Stack

On a super hot summer day, the only thing I want to eat is something cool and refreshing. And here in Arizona, it’s pretty dang hot right now. After making a homemade dinner, it’s nice to be able to quickly throw a yummy, refreshing dessert together for the family. This S’mores Chocolate Malt Custard Cookie Stack does just the trick.

Often times I don’t make dessert because I don’t have the time or energy for it. Can you relate? This cookie stack recipe is so delicious and so quick to make, it’s something even the busiest mom can do.

You will need:

  • graham crackers/cookies (I prefer the gluten free brand at Safeway)
  • marshmallows
  • butter
  • DREYER’S Frozen Custard Chocolate Malt (also purchased at Safeway)

In a small saucepan, melt about a tablespoon of butter and add in about 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Stir slowly letting the butter and marshmallows combine. Once the marshmallows are melted down, you can start building the cookie stack.

Place a graham cracker on a plate, then a scoop of DREYER’S Frozen Custard Chocolate Malt on top, then add another graham cracker on top of the custard, and continue this pattern until you are 3 graham crackers and two scoops of DREYER’S Frozen Custard high.

Slowly drizzly the melted marshmallows over the top of the cookie stack…

Doesn’t that look delicious?! It’s SO yummy!!

Can you believe it only took me a few minutes to throw one of these beauties together? And the best part is that it’s easy for the kids to help make or even make their own.
