Since I’ve become a mother, Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays. As a child, I can’t remember ever really being that into it. Throughout the past few years, as our family has grown exponentially and coming up with a theme to dress up as has gotten the whole family excited about going out and trick-r-treating together. I can’t predict how much longer that excitement is going to last as my oldest child just turned 10, but I’m hopeful. We have dressed up as characters from The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, The Incredibles, been an Indian tribe and now, this year, we are going to be… (drum roll please) The Five Little Monkey’s including bed and all!! My husband is going to put together a bed on wheels, we’ll have 5 little monkeys with heads wrapped in bandages, arms in slings and carrying crutches. My husband will be dressed in doctor scrubs and I’ll be pretending to call him on the telephone as their mama. We’ve got monkey masks, banana dresses and skirts too. In my head it’s gonna be awesome!! Fingers crossed it all works out as planned!!
I love the way this s’mores cheeseball turned out! I would usually cringe at the thought of having a cat on the table, but these little guys are welcome to stay! The recipe is super delicious and fluffy. Use graham crackers to dip and you’ll feel like you’re holding the real deal. Dressing up the cheeseball is easy too! You’ll need mint Oreos, green M&Ms and an edible marker for the eyes, Lindt chocolate squares for the ears and nose, chocolate sprinkles and pumpkin sprinkles for the kitten nose. You can find all of this at your local grocery and craft store.
