Party Panache, Last Minute Halloween Goodies

Need some last minute goodies for some Halloween fun?

cheese pumpkins and brooms

How about some cheese pumpkins or a cheesy broom?

treat jar

Halloween sweet kebobs or a jar full of treats?

candy kebobs

Nothing labor intensive at this point, just fun!


I used some cheese spread for the pumpkins,


and shaped them into roundish pumpkin shapes


Cut some groves with the tip of a sharp knife


and added a piece of pecan for the stem


Nestle them in some “potato chip hay”  Potato sticks really look better but I forgot to buy some.


The broom looked easier that it was! My cheese kept falling apart and it is pretty hard to tie a green onion tightly around crumbly cheese.  I managed to eek out one little ole broom to impress you with.  If you want to see how it’s done by a much more patient person, check out professional looking brooms here.  I don’t know what kind of cheese they used, I tried Havarti and sharp white cheddar slices and struggled!

Sometimes I don’t trust Pinterest, just sayin… have you ever tried something that looks easy and fabulous in the photos and had a massive flop?  I have, plenty of times!  So just wanted to give you the truth about my broom experience!

candy kebobs

I didn’t have buckets of cute Halloween candy, we don’t get but a handful of trick or treaters and my grands aren’t allowed to have much so mostly I use candy to decorate with~ I did have a few things though so decided to make some mini treat kebobs.

Halloween treat sticks

One Rolo, one candy corn salt water taffy, one Dot gummy candy and one candy corn.  I am definitely sneaking one of these to Super Boy

treat jar

A simple jar filled with candy makes a great treat too~This one is full of candy corn M&Ms.  A chalkboard label for the front and a cupcake paper lines the jar lid, and this treat is ready to travel!

candy skewers

Wishing you lots of Halloween fun!

skewers of treats

And jars full of delicious treats!!

    Oh yes, had more than my share of “not so pretty” recipes in the kitchen! Like you we don’t do a lot of sweet treats but I have a few up my sleeve to share with my grandson, on the sly too! I think all of your treats look fabulous, love the skewers of treats and your great idea for “potato chip hay”. Great Halloween treats………..

    I love all of your fun food! We are having a family Halloween dinner and I definitely will be making the pumpkins! We did the kebabs the last two years but I never thought to put chocolate on them – silly me! I will be adding your idea too! What fabulous plates! They just set the food off so well. Where did you get them?

    So festive and fun for a Happy Haunting Jenna! Scooping the cheese spread for an instant pumpkin patch is a brilliant idea! Love your little skewers of candy too. I’ve seen all those pintrosity blogs and boards popping up, some of them are pretty humorous considering they changed a major ingredient and skip critical steps in a project or recipe 🙂

  7. All of your treats look fabulous. I really like the little kabobs. I sure understand what youmean about the brooms. Many years ago I made them with fruit leather, basically fruit roll ups. It was a lot of work.
