Spooky Sweets

It’s really an oxymoron, isn’t it? Spooky Sweets? How can something be scary AND yummy? I guess it’s the paradox of the whole Halloween season!

The Baker’s Boxes in the Holiday Catalog got me thinking: What could I fill them with? It’s so much fun to give something a bit bigger than a card!

The boxes are nice and large (4-1/4″ square and 2-1/8″ tall) and they are coated on the inside so your goodies don’t leak through. You can wrap the boxes with Designer Series Paper, spray them with a few drops of ink refills mixed with rubbing alcohol in the Stampin’ Spritzer or color them with ink using a sponge brayer, as I did with this one:

We actually made these boxes at our Fall StampFest events last month as one of the eight projects prepared for our guests…if you missed it, make sure you plan ahead to come to our Spring StampFest in either St. George (February 23, 2019) or Spanish Fork Utah (March 9, 2019).

You can make your own at home with these supplies:

Back to the question of “what can we fill the box with?”, I found a few fabulous treats that would be perfect to bake and fill for a gift:

 

Halloween Oreo Brookie Bars

Spooky Chocolate Vanilla Oreo Fudge

Monster Mash Brownies

I had to share all three because I couldn’t make up my mind!

Give a sweet treat for every season in our Baker’s Boxes: Here’s a Christmas version of the box using the Santa’s Workshop product suite!

Trick-or-Treat: A Perfect Fit for Blondies

I consider myself a connoisseur of baked goods and my favorite bakery on the planet is The Sweet Tooth Fairy. Yesterday I stopped by for a cupcake (okay, two) and discovered their BLONDIES: Like a S’more on steroids! Let’s just say I may have a new addiction.

In an act of SERENDIPITY, I discovered that said Blondies fit perfectly into the new Decorative Window Gift Boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (6 boxes for $4.95…a bargain!):

Side Note: I bought four blondies to share with the ladies I visit in my church calling each month…only three blondies made it to the boxes…

Add a strip of Designer Series Paper, a skull stamp (so they can tell their kids it’s poison and won’t have to share) and some washi tape and abracadabra! You’ve got yourself a VERY quick gift. IF you can deliver them before you eat them all.

Project Recipe (for the boxes, not the blondies)
