Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

Chocolate Tartelettes with Strawberry Hearts


Yesterday I shared my tutorial on how to make heart-shaped strawberry slices, and today I'm here to share a quick, easy, and very yummy Valentine's Day dessert you can make with the strawberry hearts.


I start with premade frozen phyllo pastry shells. (You should find them in the frozen desserts section next to the frozen pie crust. Typically 12 shells come in each box.) These are my trick for elegant and effortless bite-size desserts and appetizers. You can fill them with so many different ingredients to create a delicious savory or sweet treat. Fill them with scrambled eggs for brunch, melt brie in them for a chic appetizer, or fill them with pudding and fruit for a tasty dessert.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1-2 packs of frozen phyllo pastry shells (get one pack for 2-4 people and two to three packs for a crowd)
  • one packet of chocolate pudding mix prepared and chilled (you can substitute with homemade chocolate pudding) *Follow directions for pie filling so the pudding turns out thick enough.
  • 4 medium to large strawberries (per 12-count box of pastry shells) cut into heart slices

 Lay the shells out on your serving tray and fill each with about 1/2 tbsn pudding. (You can also use white chocolate pudding to make white chocolate strawberry tartelettes. Top each shell with one strawberry heart slice.


Tip: Make the pudding the night before and assemble the chocolate strawberry heart tartelettes about an hour before serving so the shells don't get soggy from the pudding.
