Today, we are exactly halfway to Halloween! I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe it! The year is flying by and has certainly been a challenging one for all of us. We have had to find new normals of living and ways to be creative during these uncertain times. Disney has been super awesome in providing us all with fun things to do at home to pass the time, but this might just be my favorite thing yet!
Halloween is a big holiday for the Disney Parks. Each year the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties add more dates and start earlier than every before. The fall season is one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World. All of the beautiful decorations and special events makes it a must-do each year.
Disney has been dishing out some amazing content today in celebration of #HalfwaytoHalloween, including a special performance from Cadaver Dans and a special viewing of Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular fireworks show.
Now, they have shared some mouth-watering delicious treats for us all to enjoy at home with our families and I can’t wait to make them!
These pumpkin twists have me drooling. They look so delicious! If you want to really jazz these babies up, you could whip up a cinnamon cream cheese icing for dipping. Just mix some softened cream cheese with powdered sugar, milk and ground cinnamon until you get a saucy consistency.
After looking at the recipe, I noticed that it calls for instant pectin. I am not gonna lie, I had no clue what that was. Upon researching, I found that pectin is a “type of starch used to called a heteropolysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the cell walls of fruits and vegetables and gives them structure.” It is what keeps jams and jellies semi-solid.
I looked up possible substitutes for pectin, in case you cannot find it at your local grocery store, and it can be substituted with cornstarch or unflavored gelatin. For a print-out of this recipe click HERE.
Who doesn’t love pancakes? They are soft and fluffy and go great with some many toppings. I am a huge fan especially of pumpkin pancakes. This recipes looks pretty easy to make, which automatically puts it in my “yes” column.
I think these would be the perfect breakfast for a lazy Saturday morning. Again, don’t forget to drizzle some cream cheese icing on top! How can it hurt? Click HERE for a printable copy of this recipe.

Jack Skellington Cookies
This is an easy sugar cookie recipe that you can pull out any time of the year. Get creative and make different cut-out shapes. Maybe you even have a Mickey-shaped cookie cutter you’ve been dying to use? However you like your cookies shaped, this recipe sounds like a tasty winner to me!
If I personally, were making icing for these cookies, I would make a flood icing with confectioner’s sugar, milk and lemon extract. It provides a really refreshing balance to the sugar cookie. Click HERE for a printable version of the Jack Skellington Cookies!
Oh man, whenever I hear the words “graham cracker crust” I am all in! These bars look super easy to make and so delicious too! you could pipe a little whipped cream or Cool Whip on top of them for decoration too!
These ingredients are most likely things you already have at home or would be fairly easy to find at your local grocery store. Be sure to download your printable version of this recipe HERE!
Pumpkin Crème Brûlée
This recipe is new and exclusive to the Disney Parks Blog! I never make Crème Brûlée, because it is a very involved dessert dish to make. Plus, how many of us actually have a blow-torch at home?
I was intrigued by this particular recipe, because they said you can put the brûlée in an over-safe ramekin and broil the sugar tops instead. That would be much easier for me! If you have the time and are looking for a “wow” dessert, this is it! Click HERE for the printable recipe.
All of these recipes sounds so amazing, I don’t know what I am going to try first! Be sure to stay tuned-in today to KennythePirate.com for more amazing #Halfway2Halloween themed articles coming your way!
