Boo Jell-O Cups & More Halloween Treats

I wanted to share a fun recipe that I found on the Kraft foods website. It's for Jell-O Boo Cups!!! These cute little orange jell- o cups have whipped cream ghosts on top with mini chocolate chip eyes. If you're a big fan of

 dreamsicles then you're going to love this. They taste almost exact to a dreamsicle. Each of us made our own ghosts, Mackenzie made a cute little ghost family and Carson made a ghost with eyes, nose and mouth.

Carson had so much fun making this yummy little treat. In fact Carson made this dessert all by himself. So you see this is the perfect recipe to get your kids involved in the kitchen.

All you need is some willing kiddos and a whisk to mix with. Mommy can help with some of the ingredients like the boiling water, but after that the kids can pretty much handle the rest of the recipe.
I took a few photos of Mr. Man in action. Carson you did such a great job. Since this is a Halloween dessert I thought it would only be fitting to post a few other Halloween goodies that I have here at Mommy's Kitchen.

Maybe you're still looking for a few ideas for your Halloween party or school activity. I think the following treats would be perfect. The recipe for the Boo Jell-O Cups is at the end of this post. Enjoy!




M&M Cookie Bars are the perfect snack for school parties. Just use Halloween m&m's or Reece's pieces in place of regular m&m's.
These yummy Sugar Cookie Bars are great for just about every holiday. Frost them with orange frosting and add Halloween themed sprinkles all over the top of the cookie bars.





Boo Jell-O Cups 

Ingredients:
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Orange Flavor Gelatin
2 cups ice cubes
2/3 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
8 miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
ADD boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add ice; stir 3 to 5 min. or until gelatin is thickened. Remove any un melted ice. 

Whisk in 1/3 cup COOL WHIP until well blended. Pour into 4 dessert dishes. REFRIGERATE 30 min. or until firm. 

DROP remaining COOL WHIP by spoonfuls onto desserts to resemble ghosts. Add chocolate chips for the eyes.

Love the mummy dogs; my boys would get a huge kick out of those. I just bought orange jello too, so I'm thinking we may be making the Boo Jello. Such cute ideas! We're having 2 days of Halloween "school" this week, so I'm thinking some of these recipes will do the trick.:)

All of the Halloween recipes are cute too, but those ghosts are the best. :D
