Halloween is right around the corner and I have some fun and easy recipes with Fanta Orange soda and OREO cookies to really spice up your party. My kids have Halloween parties this week so these would be fun recipes you can serve in the classroom or if you’re having a Halloween party at your house. Evette Rios, host of the CBS show Recipe Rehab is creating custom, Walmart-exclusive recipes that combine both Fanta and OREO products that you can check out here!
First I went shopping at Walmart to get all my supplies including Fanta Orange soda and OREO Glow-in-the-dark 30 ct. For the Fanta, I found a 12-pack in the soda aisle. For this recipe you can also use a 2 liter but I knew my kids would be sneaking some drinks so I made sure I had enough. For the OREO’s with the special glow in the dark packaging, I found these in a stand alone display. Lucky for me they were right near the soda aisle.
First off you must have a fun centerpiece and it’s even more special because it’s a yummy one! This “cookie monster” pumpkin was SO easy to make.
First I spray painted a pumpkin bright blue. I spray painted it in a box so the paint would not get everywhere. I am sure my husband would not appreciate blue grass. Plus using spray paint, I thought it went on even and has a pretty blue shine to it. I also let that dry overnight before carving it.
Next get some white styrofoam balls and paint some black circles for the eyes. Then stick them in the pumpkin with toothpicks. Lastly carve out a smile for the monster and scoop out the middle as best you can.
How cute??! Just place a plate in front of the monster pumpkin with OREO‘s coming out of its mouth and onto the plate.
Next up is the Fanta candy corn soda drink. This is so easy to make. Plus the Fanta is so yummy, you don’t have to add anything to it but whip cream!
First let’s make some homemade whipped cream. Using the kind in the bottle will only melt in your drink and this homemade recipe is not only better but it will stay on top of the drink. I am kind of a whipped cream snob anyway and this is my go to recipe.
You will need:
1 carton heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
6-7 tsp of powdered sugar
Dump all that into a mixer and mix on high until it thickens up. It takes about 5-7 minutes. The kids love watching it because one minutes it is liquid and the next it’s whipped cream!
Pour your Fanta Orange drink into your glass of choice and top with whip cream and some orange and yellow sprinkles.
Last but not least is Spooky Pumpkin pancakes with black sauce on top! Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner so these would be easy to make ahead of time and serve at a party.
What you will need:
1 can of Fanta Orange soda
1 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp cooking oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Spooky black sauce:
1/2 cup strawberry jelly
1/3 cup sugar
In a large bowl mix up all the ingredients for the pancakes except the Fanta.
Add in 1/2 cup Fanta Orange Soda. If it is too runny, add in another 1/4 cup flour.
Since you will be cooking these pancakes they won’t be super orange since they will brown a little in the pan but the flavor will be so good.
Next heat 1 Tbs oil in a pan on medium heat. This fries the pancakes a little bit into delicious heaven. Trust me, it’s my secret for making the best pancakes. I make 1 or 2 pancakes at a time, so when your oil runs out, add more for the additional pancakes.
You have 2 options to make these pumpkin pancakes. You can use a pumpkin cookie cutter like I did or free hand the shape. As you can see my free-handed one isn’t as great. If you’re using a cookie cutter, spray the cookie cutter with non stick cooking spray and place in pan then pour batter in the cookie cutter. Flip when little bubbles start to form.
You will have to spray your cookie cutter for each pancake or it will stick. And if a little batter tries to escape out of its shape, just use a knife and cut it off. I had to do that to a few.
Next for the spooky syrup! It sure looks crazy but how can you go wrong with OREO’s and strawberry jelly?
First you need to process the OREO’s in a food processor until it’s the consistency of sand.
Then put all the ingredients into a pan and heat on medium.
I had some chunks of strawberries so I strained those out. And in few minutes you will have yummy black syrup for your Spooky pancakes!
