Muffin Tin Monday - trick or treat!

There was no assigned theme for this week's Muffin Tin Monday meal, but you know me.... I like themes. :) So I made up my own - a "trick or treat" theme. This muffin tin meal represents this year's trick-or-treating for my own family. :)

MTM trick or treat!

Across the back row:
- candy corn (you can always count on getting some while trick-or-treating!)
- Boba Fett sandwich (Ethan's costume of choice this year!)
- cheddar cheese ducks (toddler Tyler will be a duck with the cutest striped tights!)

Bottom row:
- grapes on piggie picks (Paige will be a squiggly piggy)
- Kryptonite (for Superman - Owen)
- clementine made to look like a jack o' lantern (what will greet us at every house while trick-or-treating!)

So now you know what my lil' Boo Crew will be dressed as this year! :)

MTM SW fett and duckies

The Boba Fett sandwich was made using a Williams-Sonoma cookie cutter, from the same set his Darth Vader grilled cheese and cheddar Yoda came from! I just used a few strokes with a food-safe marker (General Mills brand) to bring out some of the detail the cookie press makes.

MTM piggies

I had to show you the reverse side of these cute piggie picks! They have a curly tail on the backs, just like the curly piggie tail on the back of Paige's costume. Tee-hee! So cute!

MTM jack-o-lantern

The clementine was turned to a jack o' lantern with a food-safe marker and a little piece of pretzel stick was used for the stem. I've been using this black food-safe marker quite a bit lately and I keep getting questions about what I'm using - this is it! :) It works better on some things (such as the witch grapes and this clementine!) than others (like cheddar cheese jack o' lanterns).

It was fun to see what your children will be wearing. What a creative lunch! I love the piggie picks.

Such a fun grouping! I wonder if my local Michael's would have that food-safe pen. I'm going to check! :)

That's it. I couldn't take it anymore. I just dropped $60 at William Sonoma on Star Wars cutters/molds. Following your blog is getting very expensive!! LOL.

My 6 year old Star Wars freak is having a birthday in 3 weeks and I have plans to make it a star wars day from breakfast to dinner. I think he'll be delighted! Thanks for the inspiration.

So cute! I've really got to get a food safe marker! My 2 year old was a piggy last year and it's the cutest thing ever! She still asks to wear her costume!

that is a fun idea, serving food in a muffin tin! I think I should introduce a muffin tin monday too!

Jane, the kryptonite is a rock candy lollypop. I bought it at Cracker Barrel. :)

Rebecca, I've been buying picks for years and they have come from all sorts of places. My first few came from ebay and from a friend who lives in the Bay Area (which is practically bento central USA!), and more recently I purchase them from the stores you see in my right sidebar --> JList and Allthingsforsale. :)
