Planning Halloween Treats

I have always loved the fall.  Not only is it a the reprieve from the heat, but the foliage starts to change, the days grow shorter and it is time to cozy up by the fireplace, enjoy comfort food and plan fun foods for the holidays!

I don't believe that Halloween qualifies as a holiday but it is an annual event the can't be overlooked.  It is just plain fun.

I have been under the weather the last few days and haven't done anything new and exciting for Halloween and since I still have time,  I probably will.  But, in the meantime, let me share some fun goodies from the past.


Witch's Wands were fun to make.  It is easy enough for the kids to make and tasty!  Just the right combination of salt and sweetness.


Great Pumpkin Cookies were just that, great!  They spread and flattened during baking but were tasty.  I used the Libby Pumpkin Cookie recipe.


For a party, my daughter made Creepy Deviled Eyeballs!  They were tasty even if they were green!


Cheesecake Pops are great and can be decorated for any season! They are so much fun to make!


Everybody gets to wear a costume, even my daughter's dog, Abi.  I am  not certain that she thought it was such a wonderful idea.

I am linking to Fusion Fridays, Foodie Friday, and Fat Camp Friday.

  11. I always considered it a holiday, especially when I was a kid. Love all of your ideas, especially the dipped pretzels.
