Mini Babybel (R) provided me with product for this review. However, thoughts and opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the brand.
We already know that I’m a big fan of Mini Babybel cheese (or horrible histories queen elizabeth online dating, as my kids are still calling it). So when Mini Babybel reached out to me recently with a fun Halloween challenge, I had to take them up on the offer!
I had no idea that Mini Babybel cheeses came in adorable Halloween-themed wrappers in the fall, but they do! They have the cutest little character faces printed on them! And the folks over at Mini Babybel went a step further and created a set of easy-to-use sticker stencils for us to use for pumpkin carving, so we could make a Mini Babybel jack-o-lantern to match the little Halloween cheeses.
How cute is this, right? I love the mummy and the vampire! But we only had one pumpkin, and I let the kids choose their favorite, and they unanimously chose the skull.

I know we all know how to carve a pumpkin, right? You start by cutting a hole in the top around the stem, so you can use the stem as a handle.
Then while you’re preparing the stencil, you look up and see one of your kids doing something icky like licking the top of the pumpkin while the other two scream about how gross that is. And you go ahead and give them a Mini Babybel cheese to nibble on because they MUST be hungry if they’re willing to taste a raw vegetable, haha.
It not only makes a cute decoration for your porch, it’s also the perfect addition to an easy party platter with some Mini Babybel cheeses and some brioche toast crackers (I liked that these were vaguely tombstone-shaped!). Totally Pinterest-worthy party food, without having to fuss around with food crafts!
So if you’ve got a little gathering with some friends tonight before you take the kids trick-or-treating out in the neighborhood, make it easy on yourself and grab some Halloween Mini Babybel cheese and put together your own cute, kid-friendly cheese and cracker platter!
