How to Throw a Spooky Fun Halloween Party at Home with Tombstone and Nestle!

Disclosure CBiasThere’s just something about the start of October– it just seems like life becomes more magical. To me, October is the kick-off of the awesome Holiday season, jam packed full of parties, get-togethers and lots  of fun. Halloween is the perfect kickoff to the holiday season, so I wanted to give my girls something special that will create memories for a life time. So, we had a small, but Spooky and Fun little Halloween Pizza Party right at home, using the delicious Halloween Tombstone Pizzas and yummy Fun-Sized Candy that I found at Walmart!Tombstone Party #shopTo prepare for my Spooky Fun Party, I began preparing the desserts first, since I knew that would take the longest time. I made my desserts using Fun Sized Butterfinger, Crunch bars and Nerds candy.

Buterfinger Crunch Bats
  • 1 Fun Sized Butterfinger Candy Bar
  • 1 Fun Sized Crunch Bar
  • Pretzels
  • Sugar Eyes (found in the cake decorating area)

  1. Lay the Crunch Bar, unwrapped on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Break up your pretzels into a piece that looks like a bat wing-- this will be the bottom section of the pretzel.
  3. Lay two pretzel "bat wings" on top of the Crunch Bar, in the middle.
  4. Place an unwrapped Butterfinger on top of the Crunch Bar and Pretzels.
  5. Microwave on high for 20 seconds.
  6. Remove Plate from microwave and gently press Butterfinger down to meld with the crunch bar.
  7. Add 2 sugar eyes to the top of the Butterfinger bar while it's still a little melty.
  8. Chill in refrigerator or freezer until Chocolate has firmed up again and all of the ingredients have "glued" together.

Nerdy Brains
  • 5 Quarts of plain Popcorn that is already popped and cooled in a large mixing bowl.
  • ¾ Cup Corn Syrup
  • 1 Cup Marshmallows
  • ⅝ Cup Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ Lb Butter or Margarine.
  • 6 Boxes of Fun-Sized Nerds Candy

  1. With your large bowl of popcorn set aside, heat all ingredients, EXCEPT the Nerds candy, over medium heat in a saucepan.
  2. Let everything melt and come to a boil.
  3. Once it's at a rolling boil, remove from heat and pour over popcorn very carefully.
  4. With a wooden or plastic spoon, carefully stir and coat entire bowl of popcorn.
  5. Let the popcorn cool just a bit and add the Nerds candy to the bowl, incorporating the candy throughout.
  6. Let the popcorn cool just a bit more and form into brain-like shapes (or balls-- that's really how they turn out.:))
  7. To store, wrap individually with plastic wrap and throw into a Ziploc baggy. Give as gifts-- people will love them!


Ranch Slime
  • 1 Packet of Ranch Seasoning
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Mayo
  • Green Food Coloring

  1. Add Ranch Seasoning, Milk and Mayo to a small mixing bowl.
  2. Mix Well.
  3. Add 3-4 drops of Green food coloring to the bowl and mix well. Make sure you get that nice slimy green color.
  4. Chill bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until the Ranch firms a bit.
  5. Stick some spooky toys with the ranch in a serving bowl-- the kids will love it!
