Halloween Sweet Treats

🎃Hello Everyone!🎃

I hope you had a wonderful week.


Between working on this weeks post, gardening, and lunch with my good friend (who will be cat sitting for me)…



 I am finally all packed and ready for a special Fall Holiday🍁🍂



Which I promise to share with you. When I return🎃




and until then…

I’m so excited to share with you what I’ve been cooking this past week in my sweet cottage kitchen.☕️



🎃 I’m thinking you are really going to enjoy it!🎃



🎃Since it’s all about fun and yummy treats!🎃




With Halloween just around the corner….



🎃that’s about all which has been on my mind.🎃

(other than fun holiday vacations)😉




🎃This way you’ll  have plenty of time to think about how you might want to prepare your own.🎃



I have to say what really drew me to this recipe was that I l.o.v.e  baking cupcakes and haven’t made homemade pizza for years. 🍕win! win!




When I came across this recipe on Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking site I was thrilled!



I actually altered the recipe quite a bit since I don’t eat meat I purchased pepperoni for Joe and veggie sausage for me and added mushrooms, olives, cherry tomatoes and peppers.



The best thing I enjoyed about preparing this recipe…

besides Joe doing most of the prep work😉





was that it is easy to add those extra toppings you prefer to the basic recipe.🎃



Also I love the idea of making small cupcake size pizzas. so cute!




Serves 12


1 1/2 cups plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups milk

2 eggs

2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup store bought pizza sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup mini pepperoni or cooked sausage


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and liberally grease a muffin tin with olive oil.

  1.  In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, herbs and salt.
  2.  Mix milk & eggs together until well blended
  3. Add about 2 tablespoons of batter to each cupcake then add a layer of cheese followed by sauce, then cheese again. This will insure the sauce staying in the center of the cupcake.
  4. Lastly top with a few mini pepperonis. Repeat the process until you’ve filled all 12 cupcakes
  5. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the remaining batter on the top of each pizza cupcake.
  6. Top each pizza cupcake with as much additional cheese & pepperoni as you’d like.
  7. Bake until lightly browned and puffed, about 20-25 minutes.


and I have one more treat for you before our visit is over…

It’s the perfect inspiration to go with those cupcakes…🎃


I would like to share the home of my sweet friend Jane who  resides in Laguna Beach, California.





🎃She has an affinity for all things Halloween.🎃















🎃I was so excited that she allowed me to share it with you!🎃

Thanks Jane!😘
