New KRAFT Foods for Halloween & Fall Fun! #KRAFTHalloween Giveaway


I opened up a box of delightfully fun Halloween and Fall products from KRAFT Foods last week, and I couldn’t wait to start making things for dinner that very night.

First, I made a Strawberry JELL-O brain using a Halloween brain mold. Let’s call this my salad. Or appetizer. Or….just my JELL-O brain.

(I considered adding gummy worms to make it look more disgusting, but I hate gummies so that was ixnayed on the right away.)


And for the actual meal, I decided to take a box of the new VELVEETA Au Gratin Cheesy Potatoes and add a few things to make it a casserole.


I put the seasoned potatoes in a baking dish and added 2 cups boiling water and 1/2 cup milk, mixing well. Then I added a package of frozen broccoli florets and a can of chunk ham. (Chicken or turkey would work well too.)

I baked the casserole at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes, removed it from the oven, stirred in the cheese sauce and served.



What’s next?

Dessert, of course!

So I made some Pumpkin Spiced Marshmallow crispy treats using Jet-Puffed Pumpkin Spice Mallows. The color of the marshmallows made the snacks look particularly Autumn-like, and I used some food color to create a little bit of a candy corn layered effect.


I also decided to take Orange JELL-O and make “Boo-tiful” JELLO-Cups.


I love Halloween!!!
