This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Pop-Tarts.I'm enlisting once again the aid of my co-reviewers for this post. Tessa and Reed were charged with helping me to evaluate a special Halloween treat, Pop-Tarts® Choc-o-Lantern Chocolate Fudge.
Moreover, they were to come up with an original recipe using said Pop-Tarts. I gave them free reign and they went to town.
They came up with these Pop-Tarts Haunted Houses, which we created by assembling Pop-Tarts like you would a deck of cards. We topped it off with chocolate disc chimneys and bushes. Had we not been planning to eat the house immediately afterward, we might have cemented the walls with icing mortar, which you are certainly welcome to do.
(When choosing foods, I refer to the nutrition label to make sure that I am aware what my children are consuming. Here is the official Choco-Lantern site.)
Now we begin getting out the non-edibles to decorate our home. Tessa's into the cottony spiderwebs, and Reed is into swords and gravestones. We'll put rubber blooooooody handprints on our front door and we'll carve jack-o-lanterns for our front porch. On the day we decorate and carve, I'll simmer some spiced cider and put out more Pop-Tarts® Choc-o-Lantern Chocolate Fudge to snack on.
Here's hoping my kids have happy memories of Halloween.
