I feel like I have been slipping with the fall/Halloween themed recipes this year. Here are a few items from last year that may be perfect for this week’s Halloween parties.
I am definitely in a Halloween mood after this weekend. I went out to the suburbs and did a little trick or treating with my niece and nephews. The cutest hippie and skeleton I have ever seen. I didn’t get a picture of the ninja. He was pretty cute too!
The kids were able to get a jump start on the trick or treating by going around to participating local businesses. I think they need some training on trick or treating best practices. They were picking gummy teeth over Snickers and Smarties over Reese’s. They’ll learn.
I have mixed emotions about candy corn. I have no desire to eat it by itself but absolutely love it when it is paired with something salty like popcorn or peanuts. So this un-recipe file is obviously nothing new or innovative, but just a reminder of what to do with the candy corn that always shows up this time of year. Mix it with salted peanuts or salted mixed nuts and it becomes the perfect pairing.
My mom mixed up a canister of candy corn and peanuts and put it out with a little tag for the workers at their new house. She said they emptied it an afternoon so she refilled it and the same thing happened the next day. There is just something addictive about that combination!
