Let’s Make Monster Cocktail Stirrers!

Let's make monster cocktail stirrers!Halloween is coming up soon! If you’re anything like me, you had lofty goals of all the zillions of cute Halloween decorations and recipes you were going to try. But alas, who’s got time for that? 

Now it’s go time! Time for something quick, simple and festive! 

There’s still time!!! Let’s do this! 

Candy teeth! All you need is creepy crawly gummy candy and wooden skewers (the kind you use for grilling). We got ours from our local candy shop and Amazon

Monster skewersPut your candy onto the wood skewers. I liked starting from the top better. That way any sticky areas get covered up! Shape them to look like monsters. Easy. 

Try not to eat all the gummies before you’re done (by far the hardest step!). 

Monster skewers

Monster skewers Use the sticks as cocktail stirrers or enjoy them as is! 

Hope you have a fun, easy-going Halloween. It’s the little things. xx. Elsie

  • What a creative idea…So love these skewers! You could make these every season? love your blog and hope your doing well. Your such a great mama, your kids will always remember the little things you do. I have 2 grown girls, and when they were young I use to write little notes and put them in their lunch boxes, my daughter told me it made her feel so special! Thanks for your inspiring ideas, we need fun & unique, uplifting projects these days?? Melanie

  • I love these! (And gummy candies are my favorite). These would be good on their own as dessert, even without the cocktail part! Quick question, though: what cocktails would you pair these with? I know you’ve got tons to choose from in your archives. Any suggestions?

  • This is such a cute and easy idea for some party food. I think my favourite thing about it is the teeth!


  • This looks like sooo much fun! *I would the 1 eating all the candy b4 placing on the skewers! 😉

  • Gummy treats are my favorite! This looks like a sweetness overload! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉

  • This is such a fun idea! Might just have to make some of these if I’m home for Halloween! xx

  • This is one of the best halloween ideas I’ve seen this year and totally quick and doable for adults and children’s party… now can I find monster candy in time for Friday. That’s the question!


  • Now this is something that I can handle! Too cute and I think the kiddos will get a kick out of this 😉 Great idea!

  • Hi, what a cute post! Small question: where can I find the links to your friends-bloggers? I’m looking for ideas for a birthcard (Christmas baby!). Thx! Or do you have exampels of cute birthcards for a babygirl? Thx again! Tine

  • There’s never too much (starts singing to the tune of Cameo) candy! Happy Monday ABM fam 🙂

  • These are so awesome!! I don’t know why I’ve never seen something like this before, it’s genius!


  • Nah! It’s not a recipe at all- haha!

    The “print recipe view” automates on all posts tagged “food” and this IS food. Sorry if that was confusing! But I’m gonna leave it tagged as food since it’s accurate. I’m sure nobody will actually print out the recipe 😉


  • Haha, so creepy but nice! Thanks for the inspiration!!
    I do however think that a pitch black forest will be scary enough for us here in the north of Sweden…

  • This looks so sweet! This simple skewer is sure to make any cocktail into a happy halloween drink 🙂


  • These made me really giddy to throw a cocktail party for Halloween!

  • Oh wow. I have a total sweet tooth, so this is definitely up my alley. Anytime I make a stellar cocktail at home, I consider it a wonderful success, since it’s a blast, delicious, and saves money 🙂


  • This is not what I was expecting at all when I saw the title of the post. And I LOVE it!

  • This is the best!!! Definitely gonna make these for a Halloween party I’m going to.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • OMG!! I think you’ve just put me in a sugar coma 🙂

    Even though my son is now 27, if he saw these monster cocktail stirrers, he’d be begging me to put them together. Thankfully, some things never change!

    Thanks for this you two. Awesome imagination!

    Take care and all the best.
