Wickedly Sweet Bubbly Cauldron Treats

Yay, it’s finally October, one of my favorite months of the year!  Today’s post has LOTS of bewitching ideas to get you in the mood for Halloween + a giveaway from the folks at Martha Stewart!  First up, I’m sharing my Wickedly Sweet Bubbly Cauldron Treats.  Don’t they just sound fun?  Well trust me your little goblins are going to love this tasty version of the witches bubbly brew.

October is one of those months were our dinners are a little more creative.  It’s just too much fun not to serve ghoulish dishes like our mummy pizzas, spider crackers and now these bubbly cauldron treats.  The best part is these are so easy to make and aren’t just for special occasions, in fact they are a great weeknight treat!

I was trying to come up with an idea to use these mini cauldrons I picked up at Michael’s and then it hit me, why not make them into dessert vessels. As a kid I loved this dessert you always found at family reunions or church functions, Pistachio Pineapple Pudding, and I knew this fluffy green stuff would be perfect for my bubbly cauldron treats.

Wickedly Sweet Pistachio Pudding Dessert

Whip up a batch of the fluffy green dessert (recipe below), spoon it into your mini cauldrons, chill and then enjoy your wickedly sweet bubbly cauldron treats!
