Halloween Monster Pancakes and Apple Monster Eye Pops

As Squidgy proclaimed excitedly this morning, Halloween is only 3 days away! That means it's time to start with Halloween-themed food. The past few years I've really gotten into making cute, creepy, and gross Halloween treats and this year may just end up with the most recipes yet! 


We started the day with some monster pancakes. 


I used our go to pancake recipe and tried to make monster shapes by adding a tiny plops of batter on either side of the pancake and at the bottom to be ears, arms, or feet. Then I supplied the kids with curved and triangular apple pieces, blueberries, banana slices, and chocolate chips and let them decorate!

If you forget to shape your batter into monster shapes, you can always cut the pancakes! I forgot with my first batch but both kids enjoyed creating their own shapes.



In the afternoon, while Lil C had her virtual dance class, I recruited Squidgy to help me make everyone a surprise monster treat! I started by coring and slicing 2 apples then pushing a popsicle stick into each one.


Then I set up our decorating area with a bowl of melted chocolate, a bunch of large marshmallows cut into slices (I cut each marshmallow into 3 slices), and a bowl of chocolate chips.


After coating each apple slice in chocolate, Squidgy added one piece of marshmallow - sticky side up - and a chocolate chip to make an eye. Then just chill them in the fridge until set and enjoy!
