DYNAMO and Halloween Party Favorites

by Joanne on October 26, 2011

Oh so pretty.


Do you ever buy a perfume because you like the “personality” the manufacturer gives it?


Or how about the packaging being so adorable?!


She almost looks like a Barbie in her doll house.


Most importantly, we end up buying the perfume because it has all the scents that make us happy.

I just love it!  Dynamo is in the Holiday collection at Arbonne.


Need something in a hurry to take to a Halloween party?


Maybe your hosting a party and want to put out some sweet little finger food dessert delights.  Try these, quick, easy, decadent delights.

Mini Fillo Cannoli Creams

This recipe will make 60 cups

  • 4 packages (15 cups in each package) Mini Flaky Pastry Shells


  • 1 lb ricotta cheese
  • 1 TBS vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 oz mini chocolate chips
  • chocolate syrup (make your own or buy it)
  • Halloween candy for decoration


Preheat the oven to 350F  and place the fillo cups on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove and cool.


To make the cannoli, mix the vanilla and sugar with the ricotta.  Stir in gently, the mini chips.

Fill each cooled cup with cannoli cream, top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and garnish with a Halloween candy.


It doesn’t get any easier and your friends will LEEEOOOVVVEE you.



Do you get a lot of trick or treaters in your neighborhood?  We don’t get many but I buy candy any way. I guess it’s an excuse for me to eat it afterwards.

      Love the little halloween desserts! I’ve seen some people use the mini pastry shells and fill with a fluffy pumpkin batter and whipped cream for a bite-sized pumpkin pie.

      I live in an apartment complex and I’ve never gotten any trick-or-treaters. Last year I really wanted to hand out candy so I bought a few bags and went over to my boyfriend’s house to give out candy there. 🙂
