5 large egg yolks
1 cup(s) sugar
31/2 cup(s) heavy cream
15 ounce(s) canned pumpkin
2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon(s) ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon(s) ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
2 tablespoon(s) dark rum(optional)
1 teaspoon(s) powdered gelatin
3 ounce(s) shaved dark chocolate
1.Fill a large bowl halfway with ice water and set aside.
2.Whisk the yolks, 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 3/4 cup cream together in a medium saucepan. Heat while stirring continuously with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon over medium-low heat, until thickened and the mixture coats the spatula -- about 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set over the ice bath. Stir to cool.
3.Add pumpkin, vanilla, spices, and salt to the egg mixture. Stir 1 tablespoon rum and 1 teaspoon gelatin together in a small bowl. Heat the remaining tablespoon rum, and stir in to the gelatin mixture until dissolved. Gently whisk into the pumpkin mixture. Beat 1/2 cup cream to stiff peaks, and fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour into a shallow dish, cover and chill until cold and thick enough to fall from a spoon in heavy dollops -- about 8 hours or up to overnight.
4.Beat the remaining cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Alternately layer the pumpkin mousse and whipped cream in a glass serving dish. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings between top two layers. Serve chilled.

Okay, lets start with the clutter bow and sparkly glasses. The clutter bow is achieved with scraps of random ribbon the base of the ribbon needs to provide bulk so use tissue paper, cellophane or gift wrap. The base here is Christmas gift wrap crinkled, yes, Christmas but it coordinated with the Halloween ribbon and no one new the difference!!!! The glitter glasses have been on the blog before, now we have them in every color and they have come in very handy!!! Remember, two coats of very fine glitter, still using my Martha Stewart jumbo pack from summer glitter toes. So far I've done 30 glasses so this glitter really goes further than you would expect. Very tedious project though!
AND GOODLUCK WITH YOUR NEW LITTLE ONE!!! KARI IS LUCKY NUMBER 16 WHICH IS MARLAS DUE DATE!!!!

Tonia and I wanted to show you our favorite Halloween items, now it was not easy for us to choose one item each but, we finally narrowed it down.....My favorite Halloween item is this fabulous fancy Halloween witch, she is made out of a hard paper-mache, plaster. I love the detail, glitter and the plum and gold colors. I think this is my favorite item because it's different and a little funky. I use my black cake plate to place her on and together its Halloween Magic. Tonia's favorite Halloween item is this fantastic witch picture. This picture was a gift from one of her close friends. She loves the glittered mat and frame. This will absolutely be a Halloween favorite for years to come!!

Don't you just love Apothecary Jars, well we do...........now candy and treats are usually a sure favorite to fill up these jars---but, it is great to be creative and fill them with fun holiday decor. These bones are the ones we showed you a few weeks ago from Dollar Tree. They have many great uses: not only for the jars but, they have holes in each end so you could string them for garland, you could use them for that Halloween party your hosting, as a food marker. Use a permanent marker and write the name of the dip, soup, appetizer, etc. that you are serving and place it right in the bowl. Fill your jars up with bones, spiders, skulls, bats anything festive and don't forget to leave a few jars for candy!!
