Halloween is coming up quickly here, and you will want to try so many of these 38 Frightfully Good Halloween Recipes. Halloween, for us, is a very fun holiday.
There is no pressure to do anything, really. You can bake, decorate, or not and no one is calling you a scrooge, but if you are in the mood, I have for you lots of wonderful delicious Halloween recipes or try our new Mummy Rice Krispie Treats too; so cute. I have always done something for this holiday. When Amber was younger, we would, of course, trick or treat, but when she got a bit older, we went all out with huge parties.
Now that she is almost an adult, she loves to do her own thing but still is all over the hauntingly good treats!
I love a great cookie recipe or something that I have already loved that is transformed into Halloween. Halloween cookies are a great example of changing a shortbread into a finger or a meringue into a ghost.
Also, using clever items that are easily found, like chocolate kisses, are a great addition to a cookie to transform it into a hat. A peanut butter cup makes nice work of a spider’s belly here too.
