Welcome toΒ HALLOWEEN WEEK here on the blog! All week I will be posting fun, delicious, easy, super cute & festive Halloween treats and dinner ideas that you can enjoy with your own family!

I have never liked Halloween. As a kid, I of course loved it for all the candy. But I’ve never gotten into the whole dressing up thing. Since having kids I have come to love Halloween as much as they do! They get so excited about dressing up, picking out their costumes, making fun spooky treats, and of course CANDY!!

I’m starting it off right with these cute little graveyard cups. Little kids can make their own, add their own toppings, and even help mix the pudding + cool whip. They’re so easy and stinkin’ adorable, right?!?Β

Β I chose to go with Milano cookies as the headstone, gummy worms coming out of the ground, and of course those marshmallow pumpkins —–> my kids areΒ obsessed with these! You can use any treat/cookie/candy that you want to. After spending several minutes in the cookie aisle at the store, I decided that the Milano cookies were the best shape for the headstone. I actually had never even had one prior to buying them for this recipe. They are yummy! I ate a few and then had to control myself so that my kids would have some for these πŸ™‚Β
