Witchy Halloween Party with Tombstone and Nestle

CB-sponsored-post-white-400

It is almost Halloween! I absolutely love making tons of Halloween treats!  To keep everyone in the Halloween spirit I decided to throw together a little Halloween party for after our visit to the pumpkin patch.

I wanted something easy but fun and a little different than the normal orange and black pumpkin theme.

So I came up with this Witchy Pizza Party theme and thanks to a little help from some delicious Tombstone pizza and yummy Nestle candy, I was able to get this party thrown together in no time!

We decided to go with a spooky black and purple theme.  We served the pizza on a witch’s cauldron and for dessert we had “Poison Apples” and even had a little “Pick Your Potion” cupcake center.

I was able to find everything I needed at Wal-mart to get this party up and running in minimal time, though I did make the cupcakes and apples the night before.

The Tombstone Pizza was amazing and all the my little witches and goblins devoured it!  We served it on a “bubbling” cauldron and even had tiny little cauldrons of ranch and marina for dipping.

After pizza it was time for dessert!

The “Poison Apples” were a big hit and looked amazing with their glossy black shell and the purple Nerds added to their poisonous look.  Poison Apple #shop

We also had a “Pick Your Potion” cupcake station, where the kids took their cupcakes and added various witchy ingredients to make their perfect “potion”.

We used pink Nerds for “Eye of Newt”, crushed up fun-sized Butterfingers for “Goblin Teeth” and halved fun-sized Nestle Crunch bars for “Wing of Bat”.

The kids had a blast concocting their own magic potion cupcakes and it was great to see what different combos they came up with.

This party was so much fun, it was a breeze to put together and I loved that it was different than the usual Halloween Party!

Here are the recipes we used to make this spooktacular Witchy Halloween Party!

    I love this whole party! Going purple and black instead of the traditional orange/black is super cool. My favorite part was the purple nerds on your poison apples… so clever!

    If you don’t have black food coloring, I assume you could just mix all the colors and make black, or at least a dark brown?
