Tiffany Ivanovsky – My Litter

This Halloween snack is a modern take on a traditional treat. Mini Caramel Apples are simple to make, tasty, and best of all… clean to eat!
Christy Denney – The Girl Who Ate Everything
Coming from a large family consisting of 10 kids definitely primed Christy Denney for the family life ahead of her. As a mother of 5 and a “foodaholic” Christy is the wife of Miami Dolphins long snapper John Denney and has a lot of hungry mouths to feed. Luckily for us, she has no interest in letting food get boring. This spooky Halloween snack will really tug on your sweet tooth, using chocolate chip cookies, mini marshmallows, slivered almonds and food coloring dyed icing – it is as simple to make as it is creepy.
Kelly Jaggers – Evil Shenanigans
This food guru has been blogging since 2006 and has managed to write and publish 4 cookbooks. Kelly Jagger is active on social media and loves to share her love of cooking and recipes with all her fans. She’s a believer in cooking with whole ingredients and locally sourced food. This clever adaptation of a classic pastry is a perfect and understated Halloween treat. By poking two tiny holes in her cherry pastries, Kelly has replicated a blood oozing vampire bite that makes you oddly hungry.
Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez – Girli Chef
Girli Chef herself, Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez has been food-crazed since day 1. Having attended culinary school, Heather’s methods are text-book with some spice. Her recipes always seem to have a certain flair for creativity and a guaranteed wow-factor. This shrunken head cider might even frighten your guests away (leaving more cider for you) before they get a taste! By carving and baking the apples, these shriveled, shrunken, and terrifying apple heads in hot cider, will give your skin and tongue goosebumps!
Jessica Lee Binder – Food Mayhem
From a culturally diverse, chaotic and creative counter top, food mayhem is born. Jessica Lee is a Chinese-American happily married to her Jewish-American husband and living in the heart of NYC. With a background as a french culinary and pastry chef, Jess uses her blog as an outlet to get creative, making recipes that work to preserve her Taiwanese-Chinese roots, as well as dishes from the couple’s Eastern European heritage. This sweet treat might not look very appetizing, (as it truly resembles little bones) but will surely satisfy your salty & sweet cravings, using only 3 ingredients – pretzels, mini-marshmallows, and white chocolate.
Erin Dee – Texanerin
Ever get a deep down craving for some hearty finger food? Well, look no further! This Halloween you can be certain you’re the anti-life of the party with these “handy” snacks. Erin Dee, also known as Texanerin is a true blood Texan at heart but married to a German. As an avid baker, Erin discovered that eating sweets twice a week was heavy on the waist and began to explore healthier ways to indulge in her passion. Therein – Texanerin (the direct German translation for female Texan) was created. Attempting to make taste-comparable healthier options has become her value proposition, and these fingers don’t fall short. Strawberry jam blood and whole wheat pastry fluffed breadstick fingers hit the nail on the head for this food blogger.
Todd Wagner – Honestly Yum
Honestly Yum is a collaborative blog serving the purpose of visually exploring food options and creativity. Todd Wagner is one of two contributing editors, focusing on drinks. This hot pumpkin cider is a hybrid creation, hailing from the more traditional apple cider and the coveted pumpkin spiced latte, but equally embodies the fall season. In combination with the stunning visual presentation of the cider, the eery steam and pumpkin bowl will really make this simple, spiked, and spiced drink sell hard at the party. Thanks Todd!
