Haunted Mansion Movie Night

Haunted Mansion Movie Night

With the Fall season in full swing, we tend to take things a bit slower. This weekend the temps are in the low 50s and we are loving sipping on our favorite hot cocoas, wrapping ourselves in a cozy blanket and plan our next movie night.  Always looking for any reason we can to bake all the treats and watch our favorite Semi-Spooky movies, Haunted Mansion seemed to be the perfect not so scary movie for this weekend’s agenda.

Our Disney Halloween Ideas Come From the Best Places!

We recently sailed on the Halloween on the High Seas cruise with Disney Cruise Line so we were feeling a bit inspired for all things Halloween. We had seen meringue ghosts at Cove Café and just knew we wanted to incorporate those into some type of treat. Haunted Mansion was playing on Funnel Vision by the pool during our Halloween cruise which was probably also to blame. As a result we were itching to get back to create all types of fun treats for the Halloween season.

Graveyard Chocolates for Halloween

What kind of graveyard would this be without graves? We found the perfect little silicone grave molds at JoAnn Fabrics. We chose white and blue melting chocolates for these and added a small amount of black food coloring to the white to give it a slightly gray, marble stone look. When you’re pouring the melted chocolate, don’t worry about it being too perfect. We actually loved the look of the gravestones being very imperfect and thought it gave an aged, slightly spooky look.

Madame Leota’s Sparkling Limeade

Madame Leota is one of our favorite characters in Haunted Mansion, so we knew we had to create a treat dedicated just to her. And what better way to create a spooky Halloween drink than with a bit of slightly mad science?! And that’s where Butterfly Pea Flower comes into this equation. 

Butterfly Pea Flower Tea has a unique chemical in it, that, when mixed with acid like lime or lemon, it changes from a beautiful blue to purple! It’s such a fun thing to watch, and due to the difference in liquid densities, it will often separate and stay floating at the top of the glass. You can make a lot of really beautiful and fun creations with this flower tea; trust me when I say I may have fallen down the rabbit hole researching fun recipes using this tea on Pinterest. Oops. My bad. 

This limeade is super easy to make and takes just a few minutes. Here’s what you’ll need:

Spooky Coffin Halloween Pizza Pies 

Who doesn’t love pizza for movie night?! Pizza is pretty much our go to “fun” food and since we don’t really ever eat out except at Disney, we always love coming up with new recipes to try at home. This is a bit different take on a traditional pizza in that is uses pie crust, but we thought these were delicious and the perfect savory addition to our Haunted Mansion movie night.

The fun thing about these is that you can come up with whatever spooky shape your heart desires. We chose coffins, because we had small dishes shaped like coffins. Plus it reminded us of the Mausoleum scene in the movie, so it was perfect for our little hand held pizzas. You could also create mummies, gravestones, heck even pumpkins would be just darling. Let your creativity run wild! However you choose to assemble these, the big thing to remember is that you’ll want to make sure it’s fully sealed so the toppings don’t fall out. Use a fork to crimp your edges and a tiny bit of water to get a good seal. 

For the toppings, choose anything you’d like! We went with a white sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil. For some reason at the time, that seemed spooky to us, but regardless of it’s spooky nature or not, it was delicious. 

What you’ll need for the Pizza Pies

  • Pie Crust
  • Toppings of your choice
  • Coffin Shaped baking dish or cookie cutter of your choice

We used Pillsbury premade, rolled pie crust for our pizza pies and one crust, rolled slightly thinner, was enough for two single serving pizza pies. Add in the toppings, bake and enjoy!
