Cheeseburger Mac-O-Lantern #Halloween #Recipe plus a Wilton Armetale Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
There are many recipes for sweet things on Halloween, but don't forget that you still have to cook dinner before trick-or-treating begins! My Cheeseburger Mac-O-Lantern recipe can be prepared ahead of time if you prepare it in a Wilton Armetale Viceroy Oval Bowl, which can go from freezer to oven to table.
This bowl is even grill safe because it's made from an aluminum-based alloy. Designed by renowned artist Juan Vela, the Viceroy collection is vintage chic with soft sculptural scroll elements cast in highly polished Armetale metal and is at home in casual to formal settings and can be used every day. I found it easy to use, very lightweight, and easy to handwash (even with baked-on cheese).
Your kids will want to get started on their candy hunt, but this delicious happy-faced dinner will get some good food into their bellies. They'll be thrilled to sit down to eat before trick-or-treating! Ready to make Cheeseburger Mac-O-Lantern? Let's get started!

Cheeseburger Mac-O-Lantern Recipe

Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
2 cans Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
(you can use 2 cans Cheddar Cheese Soup if your kids prefer non-spicy)
1 small can sliced black olives
8 oz big macaroni noodles
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a saucepan, prepare noodles according to package. At the same time, brown ground beef in a skillet and drain. Pour prepared noodles into a bowl and mix with one can of cheese soup. Pour browned ground beef in another bowl and mix with other can of cheese soup. Pour half of the cheesy beef into the bowl with the cheesy noodles and gently combine. Save aside 2 of the sliced olives for the eyes, then pour the rest of the olives into the cheesy beef mixture and gently combine. Pour the cheesy beef mixture into your baking bowl, then top with the shredded cheese. Shape the remaining cheesy beef into a happy jack-o-lantern face on top of the shredded cheese, placing the olives on the eyes. (If you're preparing ahead of time, cover and place in freezer). Place bowl, uncovered, into oven and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. (If frozen, cook at least 45 minutes). Enjoy your Halloween dinner! Serves 4.
