Thank you all for your entries and please check back soon for more great giveaways with Minute Maid Pure Squeezed.
Over the last few months I have had the incredible luck to work as the spokesperson for Minute Maid Pure Squeezed which has been a fun and exciting opportunity for our entire family. This week I am traveling to New York for a media day to share more about the latest addition to the Minute Maid portfolio of delicious beverages. In conjunction with my media day, we wanted to share a giveaway with all of you for a year’s supply of Minute Maid Pure Squeezed orange juice.
With Halloween quickly approaching, I have gathered a few fun tips for how you can celebrate the festivities by throwing an orange-themed Halloween party with your family and friends.
Serve fun, orange foods like a cheese ball covered in shredded cheddar cheese with a celery stick for the stem, baked pumpkin donuts, orange punch, and caramel apples rolled in bright orange sprinkles.
Hollow out pumpkins to serve dips in or use a hallowed pumpkin as an ice bucket for your drinks.
For those guests (and hosts!) looking for lighter options, offer delicious, festively-hued food and beverage items, including the all-new, great tasting Minute Maid Pure Squeezed Light Orange Juice Beverage with Calcium and Vitamin D which has just 50 calories per 8 fluid ounce serving, cantaloupe in Halloween shapes (use pumpkin or witch hat-shaped cookie cutters to cut), and carrot sticks or orange pepper strips with hummus.
Light a pathway to your party with tin can Jack-o’-Lanterns. Spray paint old Folgers coffee cans orange and use a nail and hammer to punch in the faces on these tin can pumpkins. Place votive candles in each tin to guide guests up to the door.
Decorate your party table with helium-filled orange balloons. Add Jack-O-Lantern faces on the balloons and tie them to cellophane bags filled with orange candy like M&M’s. At the end of the party, these can be given to each party guest when they leave as a thank you for coming to the party.
Fill a clear container with candy corns and have guests guess how many candy corns are in the jar. The winner gets to take the jar of candy corn home with them.
Tie pumpkin donuts (recipe below) on a string for a fun game. Tie a long string around a donut and fasten the other end of the string to a very sturdy ceiling hook or fixture (or you can use a tree branch if outside). The donut needs to be just above the contestant’s head. The object is for the player to eat the donut using his or her teeth only (no hands). The player must jump for the donut.
Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Syrup Frosting
Recipe credit: Amy Clark
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 tablespoons milk
1 cup pumpkin purée
For the Maple Syrup Glaze:
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/8 cup maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease two doughnut pans. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. In another medium bowl, cream together the brown sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs one at a time, and then the vanilla extract, milk, and pumpkin puree. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until combined. Fill each doughnut mold 3/4’s full with batter. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the doughnuts spring back when touched. Remove from the pan and cool completely.
For the maple syrup glaze: In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, maple syrup and milk; stir well. Add additional milk, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over donuts.
