Pumpkin, for me, is a little different, I love Pumpkin Desserts - Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered DessertPumpkin Cookies and Pumpkin Muffins are just a few of my favorites, but I really don’t like Pumpkin Pie, well, except I did like the Maple Pumpkin Pie, it was delicious.

Although when we think about pumpkin, most of us think about Halloween, it actually is great all the way through the holidays – Thanksgiving and then Christmas.

Glow in the Dark Cupcakes

Sometimes it’s pretty cool to be a Rock Star Mom! I love it when the kids think what I make is cool, and let’s face it, those times are few and far between, especially with teenagers. These Glow in the Dark Cupcakes will put your kids {and adults} in awe of you, but Shhh…don’t tell them…they are really easy! 

Be a Rock Star Mom and make these easy Glow in the Dark Cupcakes with just a few simple ingredients. Fun Halloween Party Food or dessert for Halloween Dinner at home.

These are perfect for your Halloween Party or even a fun family Halloween Dinner. Just remember, you will need a black light to see them glow. Black lights are available at most department stores, like Walmart, Target, Ace Hardware, etc. It’s best to buy the actual black light though, we tried the light bulb and it didn’t work as well.

This cupcake shoot was a first for us, taking pictures at night has a whole new challenge. And let’s not mention that our neighbors think we are even more crazy now. But it was totally worth it! I love how the cupcakes turned out.

Without the dark of night and the help of a black light, the Glow in the Dark Cupcakes are actually green. Let me show you how to make them…

Be a Rock Star Mom and make these easy Glow in the Dark Cupcakes with just a few simple ingredients. Fun Halloween Party Food or dessert for Halloween Dinner at home.

First you will need to frost your cupcakes. The recipe is below, but essentially it’s frosting with Tonic Water added. I found that using a star tip for decorating was best. We also tried orange frosting, but the white turned out best. After the cupcakes are frosted, pop them into the freezer while you make the jello.

And here is where most of the action happens…jello and tonic water!

Mix lime jello with 1 cup boiling water and stir about 2 minutes until dissolved.

Add 1 cup tonic water to the jello. You can find tonic water near the liquor in your grocery store.

Now fill a large bowl with ice water and place the bowl of jello in. Continue to stir. You want the jello to cool down, but not begin to set up. When the jello is cool to the touch, remove it from the ice water.

Now it’s time to dip the cupcakes. Remove a couple at a time from the fridge and dip into the jello. Place them back into the freezer for 5 minutes. Repeat this dipping – freezing process 6 times. Be sure to stir the jello each time and watch it so it doesn’t start setting up. If it does get thick, dipping 4 times will work as well, but 6 is better.

Keep cupcakes in fridge or freezer until you are ready to serve them. And store leftovers in the fridge as well. You should be able to make them a day or so ahead, although the ones I made I used the same day.

Halloween Craft: Eyeball Wreath

Get your glue guns fired up because it’s time to make a fun Halloween Craft! This Eyeball Wreath is easy to make and yes – it glows in the dark! 

Halloween Craft - Easy to make Eyeball Wreath that Glows-in-the-Dark | Instructions on HoosierHomemade

Sometimes when I spot an idea in a magazine or on Pinterest that I love, I can’t seem to get it out of my head. This Eyeball Wreath was that way. Last year, I spotted the Eerie Eyeball Wreath in the Country Living Magazine. We had every intention of making the wreath until we started looking around for Glow in the Dark Rubber Eyeballs. They were really expensive and were going to cost around $75 to make.

So we put the idea on the back burner last year, and brought it up again this year. Once again, we searched around for the Rubber Eyeballs, without much luck. Until we happened to be in a local Sporting Goods store and spotted Glow in the Dark Ping Pong Balls for a only $8 per box.

Now, I know you probably may not be able to find the Glow in the Dark Ping Pong Balls, but honestly I think the Eyeball Wreath is pretty cool even when it doesn’t glow.
