HALLOWEEN PARTY IDEAS > SODA POP CUPCAKES
Let’s start with one of my favorite Halloween recipes – Orange Soda Pop Cupcakes. You’re really going to like this one. The cupcake batter requires only two ingredients: Fanta Orange Soda and a box of white cake mix. No eggs, oil or water are needed for this quick and simple recipe. If you’d like to get more festive, add a few tablespoons of Halloween candy sprinkles to the cupcake batter and mix them in.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pan with cupcake wrappers. This recipe produces 14 light and airy soda pop cupcakes. I use my 1/4 measuring cup to evenly portion out the cupcake batter. Bake your soda pop cupcakes for 14 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.
The carbonation in Fanta Orange soda makes these soda pop cupcakes beautifully fluffy. These easy Halloween cupcakes sport a slightly orange color and have a light, delicious, splashy taste of Fanta Orange which makes them even more delightful! If you have teens who like to help in the kitchen, this is an absolutely perfect no-fail cupcake batter recipe. They will really enjoy making these festive Halloween soda pop cupcakes.
My finishing touch on these beautiful soda pop cupcakes is piped on homemade buttercream frosting. But you can frost yours with a store-bought container of your favorite vanilla frosting. So quick, easy and convenient.
If you have some spooky Halloween cupcake wrappers and decorative picks, you can turn your soda pop cupcakes into real show-stoppers. Place them on a black or white cake stand and voila – you have a perfect Halloween tablescape centerpiece. With help from Fanta Orange, you’re put in the director’s chair of a fabulous and memorable Halloween movie night! I love that this year’s Halloween Fanta packaging features Noma Bar designs inspired by Universal’s new Mummy and their other classic monster characters. How fun is that?
HALLOWEEN PARTY IDEAS > SPOOKY HALLOWEEN PARTY PUNCH
My most-requested Halloween drink recipe is Spooky Halloween Party Punch. This fabulous two-ingredient recipe is a huge time-saver! All you need is one round or square container of orange sherbert and a 2-liter bottle of Fanta Orange. The irresistible fruity flavor and bright bold color of Fanta Orange brings scary movie nights to life. It’s easy to see why this Halloween Party Punch is a family favorite.
With a pair of kitchen shears, cut all the way down two sides of the orange sherbert container from top to bottom. Gently remove the entire solid block of orange sherbert and transfer it to the middle of an empty punch bowl.
Slowly pour an entire 2-liter bottle of Fanta Orange directly over the orange sherbert. Mmmmm… The orange sherbert will bubble up under the soda’s carbonation. You’ll immediately see a beautiful, light frothy foam begin to form directly on top of your Halloween party punch.
When there are more than four movie night guests, it’s best to have a few extra 2-litter bottles of Fanta Orange on hand to refill your punch bowl throughout the evening. And because it’s fun to mix things up, take a peek at Fanta’s other juicy, mouthwatering sodas: FANTA – BE MORE THAN ONE FLAVOR!
To set the stage for a fun Halloween movie night, I like to print up a few cinema-style movie tickets for my Halloween movie night guests. This year my family is getting together to watch the movie The Mummy. It’s spooky, frightful fun! My family knows I love to celebrate Halloween with special treats and decorations. They’re looking forward to this year’s Halloween party ideas and festive Halloween tablescape.
Because one of the highlights of a movie night is yummy popcorn, I turn to quick, easy, delicious Pop Secret. Their movie theater-style butter popcorn is absolutely perfect for family movie nights on Halloween and throughout the year.
Depending on your microwave oven, each bag of Pop Secret is ready to enjoy in less than four minutes. In my own microwave each bag is fully popped in 2 minutes, 10 seconds. I recommend one full bag of Pop Secret popcorn per movie night guest plus a few extras bags just in case. Ahhh…that movie theater-style buttery taste and yummy smell literally transport me to the big-screen cinema!
For Halloween movie nights I like to serve my Pop Secret popcorn in festive Halloween favor bags. This little decorative touch makes Halloween movie nights even more special. Now that we have the Soda Pop Cupakes, Spooky Halloween Party Punch, and Pop Secret Popcorn, there’s just one more important menu item to make our movie night festivities complete: delicious Red Baron Pizza!
Here’s one final round-up of the deliciousness my family will be enjoying for our spooky Halloween movie night. You might have noticed one common thread in my entire party planning process: Easy, quick, festive, fun. With fabulous Fanta Orange moms everywhere can be the star of scary Halloween movie nights their families will absolutely enjoy. From my family to yours, Happy Halloween!
