I'll be back later in the week with some yummy Orange Creme Cupcakes! Hope you all had a great Halloween!
How about kicking them up a notch and making them GLOW?!I learned this summer that Tonic Water contains quinine, which glows under UV light. Now, quinine is what gives Tonic water its bitter taste, so you have to add something really sweet to make it taste good! Well, I knew that it would be PERFECT for Halloween!!
You can add anything you like, I decided to use grenadine syrup (to look like blood). Plus, it sinks to the bottom and makes the drink glow more. Then, your guests can mix their drinks before consuming. I found the spooky skeleton glasses here.
Glow-in-the-Dark Spooky Drinks
Grenadine Syrup (or any flavoring syrup)
Black Light (I found inexpensive ones at Wal-Mart)
Fill glass with tonic water. Add about 1/3 as much grenadine syrup (to taste). Turn off the lights & place by UV or Black Light. Serve! You can change up the ingredients to your taste, the sky is the limit!
Notes: I just heard that glowing drinks were published on Our Best Bites last month. Dang it, I thought I was being creative! If I use a recipe idea, I always credit the source and even though I did it unknowingly! They have some great pics and also made some glow-in-the-dark jell-o stars--too cute!
Cookbooks will be available on an in-store display case and consumers simply present the cookbook to the cashier when they purchase the Philly products. It’s as easy as that!

-A “Spread a Little Joy” PHILADEPLPHIA Cookbook

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Cut sausage links in half lengthwise. Cut each half into three long strips. Spread fries in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 450°F for 17-20 minutes, turning once. Arrange sausage strips in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 450°F for 12-14 minutes or until they curl. Serve with fries.
I love how those sausages curl up like little pig tails! Too cute! You can serve them up in disposable aluminum bread pans or any other "troughs" you have on hand. :)Pig Cupcakes
Your favorite cupcakes
Pink Icing (we used Pillsbury Strawberry icing)
Large pink marshmallows (1 for each cupcake)
Mini chocolate chips
Pink sugar sprinkles (optional)
Frost cupcakes and dip in pink sugar (optional). Cut marshmallows in half, then in half again, as shown. This makes your "snout" and "ears".
Place two mini chocolate chips on the sticky side of the "snout" and place on cupcake. Add ears and two edible eyeballs. Oink!
Note: These Pig Cupcakes would also be a fun and easy Letter P snack!
