We were sent bags of RM Palmer Candy for a review purpose. We’ve had the stomache flu going around our house for the last two week so sadly I didn’t get this post up quick enough but I still wanted to give you a few last minute Halloween Party ideas using RM Palmer’s Candy. I must say I have always enjoyed these candies, the chocolate eyeballs have always been my favorite, I just didn’t realize that was who made them. We were sent Palmer’s Ghostly Goodies (fudge filled boos, creamy peanut butter cups, double crisp googly eyes), Trick or treat mix (fudge filled skulls, double crisp witches & peanut butter pumpkin cups) and Snappin Skulls with crispy chocolaty skulls (pop rocks inside). The kids loved the ones with the poprocks, me, they freak me out but I loved the other chocolate goodies. I’m sure the kids that come to my door will too.
Our Surprise Cheesecake
Note, this is a just add milk cheesecake mix that I got at the store but I chopped up the kids’ favorite pop rocks chocolate pieces to add a bit of a surprise in every bite. Sprinkled on top are a few chocolate pieces and skulls to top it off.
One other treat I caught my older two doing was taking the two double crisp googly eyes and one fudge filled boos and placed them into a bowl. Next they took one of the Hunts Puddings that I have in the fridge for their lunches and poured a vanilla on into the bowl with the chocolates and heated it up for a few seconds. They stirred it up and said it tasted really good, a smooth chocolate pudding.
Did you know RM Palmers has a craft and recipe section on their website? They have many quick crafts your kids can make. I remember about 10 years ago how my kids and I loved making Halloween Toilet Paper roll bats. We’d string them up and hang them in the tree to give that really spooky effect. Here’s one of their crafts:
“Palmer’s Halloween site features a Halloween crafts section filled with downloadable coloring pages, pumpkin carving stencils and trick-or-treat packs for kids of all ages.
One trick-or-treat idea that’s out of the ordinary (and can be made for about $1 each) are the trick-or-treat packs. Constructed from recyclable materials and products you’d find around the house, kids can let their imaginations run wild – creating bats, spiders, pumpkins and other hauntingly fun pieces for the packs. Visit the Trick-or-Treat Packs page for details.” – Honestly I hadn’t even thought of using toilet paper rolls to hold the candy and other goodies in. I love this idea.
