Tried and True Halloween Stuff

Sometimes I have new ideas.

Sometimes, lots of times, I just stick with the tried and true.

Royal Icing is my tried and true.  It helps me make a quick treat into something unique.  Even if I don't have the time to make cut out cookies, I can throw together a box of brownies in an instant.  I used my coffin cookie cutter and royal icing to dazzle up my quick brownies.

Pumpkin popcorn balls are tried and true.  I blogged about them a couple years ago.  And now they are an every year tradition.  Easy.  Fun.  Done.

Target Dollar Aisle is my tried and true.  Whenever I need a cute little container for treats or pops, Target is my BFF.  I just have to make sure I get my pick early in the season.

Martha is my tried and true.  She showed me how to make little pumpkins out of a small orange treat bags a few years ago.  And I keep making them, every year.  (I added a little leaf and tag).

Squeezie bottles are my tried and true.  This pic is 2 years old, but it shows that even your littles can make gourmet caramel apples with the help of chocolate drizzles.  Oh how I miss our cousin craft times.  MOVE BAAAAACK!

Pinterest is my tried and true.  I saw this pin and had to copy the branches coming out of the pumpkins. I got really crazy with the branches this year thanks to a friend who took me spooky branch hunting!

Sometimes it is just warm and cozy to stay inside my box and stick with what I know.  Or copy what is on pinterest.  :)

I get creative when I'm in the mood.  But when I'm not in the mood, I stick with the tried and true.

What are your Halloween "tried and trues?"  Do tell.


  1. Such cute ideas! My tried and true Halloween item is nutter butter ghosts! Nutter Butters dipped in white chocolate with chocolate chips for the eyes. Could not be easier and always a hit.

  2. Tried and true: frosted sugar cookies. Popcorn balls, but I haven't seen the pumpkins yet. I love the tootsie roll stem!

  3. Love all your tried and true creations and your Pinterest branches are great! Those pumpkin popcorn balls are adorable.

  4. Those are all great and impressive, even if they are "old hat" to you:)
