If you want a monstrously good Halloween party snack, look no further than this Monster Dip in a fun Monster Bowl. This monster-themed snack is fun and delicious, and the bowl is an easy, kid-friendly Halloween craft. Decorate the spooky snack with a simple banner and flag made with PSA Essentials stamps and inks.
To make Monster Dip in a Monster Bowl, you will need:
2 dollar store bowls
PSA Essentials stamps and inks
batch of Monster Cookie Dip and pretzels
I bought a set of two plastic bowls at Dollar Tree, one slightly smaller than the other. I was hoping to find non-plastic bowls, but they didn’t have any in stock. (Non-plastic is better for curing the craft paint.) When I got home I stuck the bases of the two bowls together with E-6000 (as shown) and let the glue cure overnight. Those puppies aren’t coming apart any time soon.
Then I added a monster eye and some snaggleteeth to the two bowls using Martha Stewart craft paint. Her paints are top rack dishwasher-safe if they are fully cured, either by baking in the oven (not an option with plastic) or by letting them cure for 26 days.
In the meanwhile, I got working on my dip signage. I used PSA Essentials Archive stamp pack letters inside the Haunted Shack pack outer ring to spell out MONSTER in Lime Green ink. Then I switched to the Vanilla stamp pack without a ring to stamp DIP in Poppy Orange.
I used my circle cutter set at 2 inches to cut out the MONSTER letters and my paper cutter to turn the DIP letters into a flag. I backed everything with coordinating scrapbook paper glued on with my adhesive roller.
I poked two holes in a cheap Dollar Tree platter and inserted the skewers. I tied up the MONSTER banner and added the DIP flag to the delicious dip.
My dip was made using Skip to My Lou’s irresistible Monster Cookie Dip recipe, with a few tweaks. First, I used coconut oil instead of butter, which was delicious. Second, I didn’t measure anything except the powdered sugar and oats on account of I hate math in all its sundry forms.
I think this would be a great addition to a Halloween party or Monster-themed birthday party. Salty, sweet, and scary! Who could resist?
