Holiday Special Recipe

I absolutely love celebrating holidays. My mom is the BEST at making her home festive whether it’s Valentine’s Day or Thanksgiving or Halloween. It’s so fun and bright every time we visit.

I want my kids to have the same excitement about holidays that I got from my mom. Themed treats make holidays so fun! They spread joy. Make memories.  And these Frankenstein Pies are just the thing to make Halloween extra special this year.

The crust is a chewy no-bake brownie (yum!) And the filling is a super rich and creamy vanilla-coconut cream. Plus a chocolate face!

How to Make it GREEN – without DYES

Tthe GREEN pie filling face is 100% naturally colored. No dyes and no food coloring needed. Nothing artificial!

It’s got a sneaky secret that makes me happy as a mom, haha! It’s a VEGETABLE! These yummy little pies are packed with spinach to make that awesome green hue.

And no one has to know! You cannot taste it– really! It’s just sweet and creamy and delish!

You simply blend in a few handfuls of fresh baby spinach right into the filling and it creates a vibrant gorgeous color that makes it so great and festive!

So my kids get to have a fun (and healthy) Halloween treat that I’m thrilled for them to eat. #momwinFrankenstein Pie PrettyPies

FRANK-ly, it’s easy!

This is such a simple recipe. For real. Blend and chill (my fav!). No baking involved.

To make the crust:

Basically, just place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse them together until a sticky dough forms.

No need to bake! Just divide the dough into parchment lined pans and chill until the filling is ready to be poured on top. The dates act as a binder to hold it together like magic.

To make the filling:

Same method! Use a food processor or high speed blender. It’s as easy as the push of a button.

Blend the cashews first, followed by sweetener, spinach, vanilla. Blend super smooth. Add the oil last.

Coconut oil is the special ingredient to hold together the pies without eggs, gelatin or having to bake it, since it solidifies when chilled.

Remember to taste and adjust as needed.

Equipment I Used

I used these mini cheesecake pans I found at TJ Maxx (love that place!) But you can also find some on Amazon. Aren’t they cute?

If you don’t have the mini springform pans, you can use a muffin tin lined with parchment or silicone. See my notes for other options.

I used my sturdy 7-cup food processor from Amazon to make the crust and the filling.

To Draw the Freaky Face

  1. Grab some of your favorite chocolate – chips or a bar, either will work.
  2. Place the chips or chopped bar into a small microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Gently heat in 20-30 second intervals, just until it’s almost melted.
  4. Stir smooth and immediately use a spoon to scoop some chocolate and drizzle / draw it onto your chilled pies.

It doesn’t have to be perfect – as you can see by my faces, ha!

The key to Frankenstein’s face is the big angular head and eyebrow.
