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.

GREEN Machine

The crust is a chewy no-bake brownie (yum!) and the GREEN face is 100% naturally colored. No dyes and no artificial coloring!

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! 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. And the faces are made with melted chocolate.

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.Frankenstein Pie PrettyPies
