Halloween is my primetime, so I’m always on the prowl for fun things to create the perfect Spooky Halloween Party like the limited edition Cheetos Bag of Bones. They asked what I would do with a bag of bones and I “dug” something fun up for this sponsored post!
I have a confession: I love to host parties.
HOWEVER, while I have the greatest intentions of trying to give the Pinterestable party mom a run for her money, I don’t have the time to put it together. But this Halloween I’m not letting a little thing like time get in the way of throwing a spooky fun-filled Halloween party even if I only have 20 minutes to put it together.
Does it sound like the candy corn has gone to my head? Nope, a few unique hacks here can make your party go from blah to boo-tiful!
Not too bad for 15 minutes using just a few things you have around the house AND a quick pick up at the grocery store, the Cheetos New Limited-Edition Cheetos Bag of Bones.
Bag of Bones: The easiest item on the menu, I just opened up the 8 oz. bag (around $3.50) with four different white cheddar bone-shaped puffs and threw them in a cauldron and a few on the table for a little décor. Later the Cheetos snacks became entertainment too as we put together our skeletons and then snacked on them, one bone at a time.
Time: 30 seconds (maybe)
Severed Fingers: Making these actually made me sick because they looked so real! Cut hot dog wienies in half and add a few horizontal cuts to look like fingers. Then cut a little “nick” out of the top of the dog to resemble a finger. Place them in a bowl of ketchup to keep them upright. Put them in the microwave to give them that mutilated look. Then add a little more ketchup on the tip (or sriracha sauce for kick.)
Time: This took around 5 minutes, but did it while my spaghetti and eggs boiled!
Time: The longest time was the boiling and the decorating took 3 minutes maybe.
Bowl of Brains: Nothing but your favorite pasta noodles and spaghetti sauce. I happen to find these eyeballs in the cookie decorating aisle and threw them in for a little effect.
Time: 10 minutes to boil, but the sauce and eyes took about 1 minute.
Gravestone Cups: Chocolate pudding snack cup, crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, one oval cookie like a ladyfinger, gummies worms and a little package of writing icing make these the easiest and spookiest dessert you’ll ever make.
Time: It took only 4 minutes to make all of these!
As favors for the party, I also picked up the limited-edition glow in the dark Cheetos Crunchy treat snacks! With 30 in the pack for just $5, the snacks make a fun way to munch – in the light or dark!
And a bag of tasty bones isn’t the only thing Cheetos is brewing up this Halloween! There’s all kinds of ways to get into the “spirit” including:
