Will it be a ballerina? Fancy Nancy? Dora? (Please no. Don’t let it be Dora), Ruby the bunny rabbit? Batgirl?
Drum roll, please. And the winner is…
Sleeping Beauty. A princess. Of course. Sorry, Nancy – I was rooting for you.
Haley is going to be Sleeping Beauty for Halloween. She waffled a little bit, but ultimately Aurora, with her long blonde hair and pink dress, won.
Trevor asked for Curious George, but I couldn’t find a costume I liked. So, he’s going to be Woody from Toy Story. With no complaints. Boys are so easy…or, wait…maybe it’s because he’s two?
I continue to torture myself with baked goods over here. Were the Witches’ Brooms a little too challenging? No worries. Try these cupcakes. Super easy. And they’re meant to look messy, so get those kids involved in the process!
And snatch one of the cookies for yourself, before you smash them all up. Nobody will notice.
Worms In Dirt Cupcakes
Makes 24 cupcakes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Cooling time: 30 minutes
Assembly time: 20 minutes
• 1 package cake mix
• 1/3 cup vegetable oil
• 3 large eggs
• 24 Cupcake sleeves
• 1 container prepared frosting
• 1 cup finely crushed Oreos
• 1 package of gummi worms
Line 2, 12 cup muffin tins with cupcake wrappers. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions for baking cupcakes. Let them cool completely.
Frost each cupcake and sprinkle on the cookie crumbs. Use a small knife or large chopstick to make holes for the worms. Place the gummi worms in the holes (cutting some of them in half to make them seem deeper in the dirt.)
That’s it! Enjoy.
