Moving on to Today’s post:

I once read that the most elite runners think of absolutely nothing but their form as they run. Well, I guess that counts me out! When I run, my mind races almost as quickly as my body, jumping from subject to subject faster than John Mayer changes girlfriends.

Often, my surroundings influence my thoughts.  (Remember the peachy-green ice cream?)

Such was the case a few days ago, when I passed a house all decorated for the upcoming holiday I love so much. (Did you catch the Chocolate Mudslide Oatmeal post?)  Little trash-bag ghosts (you stuff white bags with paper, then draw on faces—voila: trash-bag ghosts) dotted the trees.  This got me thinking…


How to make Fudge Baby Ghosts

1. First, make up a batch of Fudge Babies.  For my ghosties, I opted to use the Peanut Butter Fudge Babies version.

2. Next, form balls.

3. Cut circles out of a clean plastic bag and draw a face in the middle of each circle.

4. Place the little dough balls on the circles and close them up with bag ties, ribbon,etc.

5. Display your Spooky Babies for all to see eat!

These are going to be Halloween presents for my friends, and I still have one more batch to make. But the jury’s still out as to whether or not this last batch will ever arrive at its intended destination. I’ve decided to make the last batch into Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Babies.

And somehow, when I’m around, chocolate seems to disappear…

    Awww. Those are so cute! I might just have to make some myself. Much better than any other Halloween “candy” being handed out.

  2. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) says

    CUTE!!! You are wicked creative, ma’am. Loving the PB babies idea, too. Love the PB cup idea even more actually! I was getting jealous of coworkers digging into the Halloween-stash Reese’s but kept thinking about how they make me feel like garbage. PB cup babies are a FAR better idea, don’t you agree? 😉

    And of course your touching comment on my bloggie this a.m.

    I love you Katie, enjoy your holiday weekend and if we lived closer you could come over and sit at the front door with me while we ate Fudge BAbies and passed out candy to the lil ones coming by!

  5. Jenny says

    I just found your blog and I think I’m in love! Fudge babies may just be the best thing EVER! I’m addicted to Lara bars and I would love to have a homemade alternative. Thanks! I’m adding you to my blog rotation!

    If I was able to get trick-or-treaters in my apartment complex(it’s a locked complex), I would so give these out! Maybe I should call my mom and dad and tell em’ to get busy in the kitchen and hand these out to the kiddies 🙂

    HaPpY hAlLoWeEn!

    Hi Katie!

    I know I have never commented on your blog before, but I have been following it for quite a long time. I love the idea of a vitamix, because organic flours and nut butters are so much more expensive than grinding them yourself!

  10. Meg says

    Hi Katie! This is my first time commenting.I love your website! You’re so creative.

    These Spooky Babies are so cute, and they look delicious!
    The first thing I would make in a Vitamix would have to be a green smoothie! Yum!


  11. Adam says

    These look fantastic. At the risk of sounding chauvinistic I hope my wife will make them for me! I’d use the Vitamix for delicious smoothies!

  12. LW says

    I am definitely making these spooky babies for my niece and nephew. And if they’re lucky (and I’m lucky!), I’ll make them some yummy fruit smoothies with my new VitaMix!!
