Boo-Tastic Halloween Popcorn with Skinny Pop Popcorn

Did you know October is National Popcorn Poppin' Month? To celebrate, I teamed up with Skinny Pop Popcorn to share a fun recipe idea with you. 

My Boo-Tastic Halloween Popcorn is sweet, salty, delicious and full of Halloween candy color and goodness! You won't believe how easy it is to make. This will soon become your go-to dessert for all your Halloween parties!


2 Tablespoons Butter {sweet or salty}
2 Cups Mini Marshmallows
Skittles - Cauldron Colored {Purple, Green, Orange, Blue and Yellow}
Sprinkles - Halloween colored, I used Wilton Creepy Sprinkles Lab ~ Jumbo Nonpareils


1) Pour your Skinny Pop Popcorn onto a large cookie sheet.
2) Melt your butter and marshmallows on the stove in a saucepan, until fully melted. Being careful not to burn this mixture.
3) Drizzle the mixture over your popcorn, carefully mixing the popcorn and melted marshmallows together.
4) Now comes the fun part, while the mixture is still warm, we added in our Cauldron Skittles {a handful of each color, except yellow} and sprinkled the jumbo nonpareils on top of the popcorn. 

5) Let the popcorn cool, then break apart and ENJOY! 

This has become a fast favorite at my house, in fact I don't have any left overs and I just made it yesterday! 

I was challenged by SkinnyPop Popcorn to dress up my popcorn - I was in no way compensated for this post. All opinions and text are my own and if you know BellaGrey Designs, you know I only promote products I love.

Surprise Emoji Party

Awhile back, we traveled to Colorado to see my family and my daughter had mentioned to me earlier in the year, she would really like a "Surprise Party" one day! a party stylist I quickly realized this task could be accomplished fairly easy! How you ask? Since we were staying with family, I contacted my mom and sister to see what they had in their serving dish stash! I really didn't want to pack all my dishes.

After discovering I would have all the dishes I needed, the only other items I would need is the decor! Well it just so happens, I have all it all in the studio, so I packed it all up nice and neat and placed into my new leather tote and away to Colorado we went! 

Friday, July 22 was the "Surprise" day!! I was so excited and my daughter thought I was setting up for a photo shoot! The perfect cover-up! 

After wrapping my mind around this fun idea, I started the design process! My daughter LOVES Emoji's right now! What tween doesn't? Right?! I added a little twist on mine with the polka dots and a few pink bows! 

Didn't the invite come out so cute? I love the yellow and black color combination along with stripes and polka dots. The XOXO with eyelashes were a huge hit with the girls. 

The text-speak abbreviations are all part of the fun when using Emoji's so I added a few of those into the designs as well. I sprinkled 2" circles all over the table as confetti. 

The local bakery did a great job on her cake and she was thrilled to find out it was a two layer cake with her favs ~ Red Velvet and Chocolate!!

I like to use fun paper plates, like these, for kids parties for the ease of clean up. It was so fabulous to find the plates in the colors and designs I needed. 

My sweet friend, Autumn of  Sparkling Sweets Boutique created the perfect chocolate covered Oreos! 

And Katherine of Creating Awesomenessity used her magic to create these fabulous sugar cookies to match my design perfectly! 

The table was dressed in black and white striped linens with a yellow polka dot runner. I love how it all came together. It is hard hosting an event somewhere else where you don't have the ability to use your own items, but I was pretty happy with how it all turned out. Most importantly, my daughter LOVE IT! LOL

Each of her cousins received a box of popcorn, sunnies {red hearts for the girls and black square for the boys}, a package of Emoji gummies {oh yes, I found them after a loooooong search} and an emoji balloon!

I was very emojinal since my baby is now in double digits! :(

She and her cousins had a great time at the party and making their very own Emoji shirts! My niece posing with her favorite Emoji after completing her shirt! 

And the very happy birthday girl! I was able to keep the surprise until she saw the cookies with her initial on them and my mom asking her how she liked her party! #lol #rotfl

Hope we able to inspire you for your next party! You can purchase all the printable party designs by emailing us at as these will not be available in our shop.

Caramel Macchiato Cake Dessert Waffles

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and it's advertisers. All opinions are my alone. #SplashofDelight #CollectiveBias

I'm taking one of my favorite coffee creamers from morning to night, with melt in your mouth Caramel Macchiato Dessert Waffles topped with delicious vanilla ice cream drizzled with warm caramel topping. I don't know about you, but my mouth is watering just typing this! 

We often have breakfast for dinner, especially when my husband is not home. It's easy and fun to mix things up every so often. I remember the dessert waffles as a kid, do you? I think it is where I learned to love waffles. This idea got me thinking, why not add International Delight® Coffee Creamer to my favorite breakfast item and turn it into a dessert? 

Hold onto your socks, because this dessert right here, will knock them right off! You will never be able to eat regular waffles again! 

Gather all your ingredients: 
  • White Cake Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Creamer
  • 3 Eggs
  • Caramel Topping

  1. Preheat your waffle iron, mine has a light which will stay on until it is ready, then it turns off. 
  2. Mix cake mix, water, creamer and eggs with mixer until fluffy. Making sure everything is fully mixed.
  3. Place a 1/3 cup cake batter onto the hot waffle iron. Depending on the size of your waffle iron, will depend on how much cake batter you use. I have a small round one. 
  4. Remove the waffle from the iron, when it is done and set aside. Top with a scoop {or 3} of vanilla ice cream and drizzle warm caramel over the top. 
And that, my friends is how you bring your favorite International Delight® Coffee Creamer from morning to night! 

Speaking of morning, I love starting my day off with a great cup of coffee and International Delight® Coffee Creamers do just that! The International Delight® Cold Stone Creamery™ Sweet Cream is a delicious addition to my morning routine and I really like the new easy grip half gallon bottles, they are easier to hold and pour. 

I found International Delight® Coffee Creamers at my local Walmart store in the Milk and Dairy section under Creamers.
