Forked Eyeballs

These scary-good Halloween treats, prepared and eaten on the same fork, begin with a doughnut hole dunked in white chocolate.

  • 2 (11-ounce) bags white chocolate chips
  • 12 doughnut holes
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Tube of red decorator frosting
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. To coat a dozen doughnut holes, melt the white chocolate chips with the oil over low heat (and keep the chocolate warm while you work). With a fork, spear each doughnut hole and submerge it in the melted chocolate to coat it, then gently tap off any excess.

  2. Stick a semisweet chocolate chip with its point cut off onto each doughnut hole, cut end first. Place the forks (handle side down) in a mug and allow the chocolate coating to harden.

  3. Use a tube of red decorator frosting to add squiggly veins radiating out from the pupils.

Nightmare on 13th

I’d never been to a haunted house before, so this weekend we went to Nightmare on 13th. It was really fun and pretty scary. I’m not going to lie, my throat was just a little bit sore afterwards. haha.

Utah State Fair

I’ve been meaning to post these for a while, but we went to the Utah State Fair about a month or so ago. I’ve never been to the State Fair before, but it was really fun. The kids had a blast. About ten of us went to the fair and rode rides, played games, ate TONS of food, and saw all the animals. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend going next year.

Kale and Lily went around the whole day holding hands and running from ride to ride. So funny. Best Buddies.

Shari and I

I have no idea why, but Kale and Lily loved the hot tub tents. They kept wanting to sit in them and stick their hands in the ones with water. I swear they liked them better than the rides.
