Who loves Halloween?
ME! Me me me me me me me me meeeeee!
The ghastly decorations, elaborate costumes, and inevitable sugar rush always spurs on some fun family memories.
I’ve got two spook-tacular surprises to share with you today, that are sure to make this Halloween frightfully fabulous!
One: Mini Blackout Cakes. This moist and devilishly dark chocolate cupcake recipe will have your little goblins begging for more.
Two: Spooky Halloween Portraits, to frame as Halloween decorations or use on cards and invitations.
The other night I couldn’t sleep.
I sat down to piddle-around on my computer at 3 am, and discovered Pic Monkey’s new Halloween photo editing settings. Pic Monkey is a program I use occasionally for quick edits and simple photo collages. It’s free, with the option of paid upgrades.
I opted to spend the extra few bucks this month to play with the Halloween editing settings.
…because I’m a nerd and that’s what we do when we can’t sleep.
The next day (after a lot of coffee) I showed the kids and, of course, they had to monster-fy themselves as well. I asked them to make their scariest face for a quick shot, then sat them down to edit their photos.
Believe it or not, they edited these photos completely on their own. It’s that easy.
This was a fun-find that I know we’ll use again and again.
Back to the chocolate cake…
I’ve made this mini chocolate cupcake recipe dozens of times, for birthday parties, showers, pretty much any occasion, changing only the color of candy melts I use to decorate the tops.
Each little chocolate cake is soft and tender with a deep chocolatey flavor; and just the right size to pop in your mouth one at a time.
Using dark chocolate cocoa powder really takes this chocolate cake recipe to another level for Halloween.
They are so dark.
With ever-so-slightly bitter undertones from the addition of coffee.
This is such a great treat to pile on your Halloween table.
Not only are they a chocolate-lovers dream, they are small enough to give your kids, even after a pillowcase full of candy.
