We’re starting on our Halloween-themed Muffin Tin Meals! I love Halloween, and my kids are picking up on my enthusiasm. Today I made them a muffin tin lunch with a pumpkin/jack-o-lantern theme, and they loved it. I recently bought a second 6-cup muffin tin, so I made a muffin tin meal for both of my kids. My husband was home during lunch, while both kids were sitting quietly at the table eating, and I commented, “Muffin tin meals are magic!”
So, here are our first Halloween muffin tin meals, with a pumpkin/jack-o-lantern theme. After a moment’s thought, I decided not to mention the “blood” to my preschooler, but that might be fun for an older kid.
Maggie’s Muffin Tin Meal
- apple jack-o-lantern
- okra piece (for the pumpkin stem)
- sugar-free drink (blood)
- pomegranate seeds (drops of blood)
- macaroni and cheese (pumpkin)
- pumpkin-shaped Rice Krispie Treat with colored sprinkles
The kids were both great eaters. Maggie even willingly tried the okra and pomegranate seeds.
I mentioned when I shared my Chocolate-Frosted Rice Krispie Bars recipe that I like to use Kellogg’s brand Rice Krispies because they hold up better. I paid $9 for the box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies I used to make the pumpkin-shaped Rice Krispie treats. It was imported from the UK and I was amazed at how good the cereal looked! My theory stands.
