Happy Halloween fellow bloggers!
BOY are YOU in for a treat! I am loving a new blog, Chocolate Covered Katie, and, thanks to Miss CCK, I have discovered the joys of 'Baby-Making'!!! OMG. I am addicted. And you know what? Making them is almost more fun that eating them!
So far I've made 4 batches, each different! In fact, though I made two last night, I did the other two today and the Beebits helped! A baby makin' babies.. LOL. Well he's a toddler but that doesn't sound quite as cute ;) He loved helping and he LOVED eating haa! AND the best part is they're sugar free, and (relatively) healthy, so I didn't mind him having them!
Here's the Babies we did (my version, of course), ingredients are listed, and the process is just pulse in a processor or (I use my magic bullet) until everything's mixed then shape into lil Babies!:
80g dates, 30g raw cashews, 1/8 tsp vanilla
80g dates, 30g raw cashews, 10g coconut butter (I used Artisana), 5g unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/8tsp vanilla
The Cashew and Cocoa-Coconut Babies side-by-side
50g dates, 30g raisins, 30g raw cashews, 5g unsweetened shredded coconut, 1/8tsp vanilla
(And without an in-the-bullet pic) Coco-Pine-nut Nut Babies (ran out of cashews, decided to see what it was like with pine nuts, not bad!)
80g dates, 32g unsalted pine nuts, 1/8tsp vanilla, small sprinkle salt
These are the Coco-Pine-Nut (far) and the Trail Mix Babies (near) together :)
Also on our Halloween agenda.... lil crispy corn Ghosties! Inspired by this post, and since I happened to have a package of qhite corn tortillas just sitting in the fridge, I decided to try my hand
at homemade chips! The Beebits helped of course. ;)

|Pile of chips, cooling off|
|Lookie lookie, my lil ghostie!|
I actually overcooked one tray a bit :( so some of them are kinda brown ghosties lol, but they still taste pretty good! I'd make them again :)
And a fun Halloween morning with the Beebits - my favorite kind of fun time! We cooked (the chips and made the Babies), we colored, we made snakes... we decorated a pumpkin... What a fabulous morning!
|The pumpkin fell and got a booboo - so we put a bandaid on him :) All better!|
|Happy face pumpkin! The Beebits decorated all by himself!|
|Happy pumpkin from the back :)|
|Mommy and the Beebits and the Happy pumpkin :)|

We're meeting up with a little friend of his for some Trick-or-Treat fun too! I'll post again with pics of that fun time later!
Have a Happy (and safe) Halloween everyone!!!!!
