Oreo Owl Cupcakes & Jack O’Lantern Juice are both easy recipes that are perfect for your Halloween party. The kids can help make the cupcakes. These cupcakes are so good. They made the cut in my best cupcake recipes.
What’re your plans for Halloween? I always look forward to our church’s Trunk or Treat party.
Just in case you’ve never participated in a Trunk or Treat, it’s where all participants park their cars side-by-side, decorate their trunks and hand out treats as the kids walk from one trunk to the next.
I can’t tell you what my trunk is going to be yet because it’s a surprise. But I will be wearing a costume.
Oreo Owl Cupcakes & Jack O’Lantern Juice
When it comes to handing out treats, I always like to be a little different AND have the best treats. I remember when I was a kid and would go trick-or-treating in my hometown with my siblings. We always knew who had the good stuff.
This year, I’m the one with the good stuff! I’m handing out OREO cookies in glow-in-the-dark packaging. The cookies come 2 to a package and there are 30 packs of cookies in each box.
Before we head to the party on Halloween night, the grandkids always stop by to show off their costumes, have lots of photos taken and to get their special treats from me.
My most popular treats are Orange & Black OREO Owl Cupcakes & Jack O’ Lantern Juice. The juice is made from Fanta Orange Soda, pineapple juice and orange sherbet. Everything I need for my snacks is at my local Walmart.
It’s true confession time. As soon as I got home from Walmart, I opened the package of OREO cookies, rushed to the windowless guest bathroom, shut the door so that I was plunged into total darkness and watched the OREO packaging glow in the dark. Yes, things like that really excite me. I never stopped to think that someone might open the bathroom door and find me in the dark, surrounded by OREOs. 🙂
Jack O’ Lantern Juice
My Jack O’ Lantern Juice is so easy to make. Add a couple of scoops of orange sherbet to a glass. Then pour in equal parts Fanta Orange Soda and pineapple juice. It’s simple to make, but it’s oh, so good.
I made the not-so-spooky faces for the glasses using black construction paper and glue.

My Orange & Black OREO Owl Cupcakes are just as easy to make. There are only 2 ingredients in the cupcakes – a cake mix and 12 oz. of Fanta Orange Soda. That’s it.
After the cupcakes are baked and cooled, they’re dipped into a luscious chocolate ganache and then decorated with Oreo cookies eyes to look like spooky owls.
