I have a confession to make. I’ve not always been the greatest fan of Halloween. While I totally get the part about collecting and hoarding the most candy you possible can, I’m just not as enamored with the whole dressing up in scary outfits thing. I hate going to stores around Halloween where the employees dress up in costume. And it freaks me out a little to be driving down the road at night and see the driver of a passing car all decked out in his or her scariest costume.
So besides the piles and piles of candy, what else do I like about Halloween? Well there’s the annual pumpkin carving I do with my nieces, the decorating, and well of course, the baking. I just love those little bite-sized sugar cookies topped with a single delectable candy corn. And those crispy chocolate-marshmallow treats dipped in chocolate and topped with orange sprinkle…that’s certainly not a scary treat.
Finally, pictured at the bottom of the post is one of my favorite Halloween crafts from Martha Stewart, a treat bag disguised as a witch’s broom. These were so much fun to make and fill.
I hope you enjoy your Halloween festivities, just don’t bring your hauntingly scary selves around to our place.
