The countdown to Halloween is on, only a couple days to go, so I thought it’s now or never for a Halloween post. And hey, I even switched up the white background for the occasion.
This is as Halloween-y as I get. If it was up to Cole, he would dress me up in a costume.
In fact he’s been dressing his little brother up in his Batman costume for the last two weeks wherever we go. He’s also been begging me to put up all of the Halloween decorations. Admittedly, this year I’ve been busier than usual and so has Naomi, so we’ve fallen behind in that department. This last weekend I pulled some things out of the garage to surprise him, and he gave the thumbs down “Cheap. Not even scary, Dad”.
He was right. Which means, I’ll have to pull out the tall ladder to get the “real” Halloween stuff. So much for cutting corners.
At least, I didn’t cut corners when it comes to these shots. You won’t have to either, because they are extremely easy to make. they just take a little time. To get started I used grape, melon and peach – yes, peach not orange. I don’t like orange Jell-o, it reminds of hospital food. Ugh. I’ve got way too much experience in that department. The white is sweetened condensed milk and to make this boozy, I used Vodka.
As I mentioned, these take some time, so here are a few things you can do to speed things up: (1) clear a shelf in your freezer (2) freeze your mini muffin pan prior to starting, the chilled pan will speed up the process.
Alright, ready? Let’s get started.
