Muffin Tin Monday - Theme: Fall Harvest/Halloween

Welcome to another edition of Muffin Tin Monday! If you are new around here, I am the Muffin Tin Mom in charge of Muffin Tin Monday, a weekly blog gathering where each week participants share via blog posts or an uploaded photo to (preferably) Flickr.com, the muffin tin meal we made for our kids over the previous week. You can link up your muffin tin meal in the form below. What is a "Muffin Tin Meal"? It's simply a meal in a muffin tin! You can make it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and even for snacks and dessert. The possibilities are truly endless. To read more about MTM, you can check out the FAQ and previous MTM posts.


This week's theme: Fall Harvest/Halloween.


I must confess I am not as sweet on Halloween as some. I just have never been that into it. I know there may be audible gasps from some of you, but that's just me. Kind of mellow around this time of year.


I was debating what to for this week's MTM. Was I going to create something out of food or with food? I didn't know. One of the kidlet's favorite things to have in a muffin tin is the Pretzel and Frosting Snack Tin from earlier this year. So...We made frosting "mummies"! It's our family's sugar laden ode to Halloween.


Start with a smattering of sprinkles...




How to make a mummy: You take a pretzel stick, dip it in the white frosting and then in the sugar and sprinkles.


I may or may not have gone a little overboard when I created the orange-haired little guy below. My husband didn't think he looked like a mummy at all. :) We had fun though, and that's what matters. There was frosting and sprinkles all over the place!

Oh, and the sugar high that came afterward was not pretty.

Alright, show me those tins! I want to see all the Fall Harvest/Halloween goodness out there!

  6. That is too cute. My boys love anything that involves dipping. Or sprinkles. Combining the two would make them flip :).
