Halloween Fun

Here's my Halloween banner in black light.
 Halloween was so much fun!  I was busy baking treats all day for my dessert table, and in the evening, the kids had a great time trick or treating.  Skylar was a little shy at first, but once she realized that she got a treat by simply saying, "Trick or Treat" (more like "Chick or Tree") to strangers, then she quickly got the hang of it!  Brody's costume was a big hit, everybody loved our handsome little UPS man!  Here are some pictures from our festivities.

Trick or Treat!

Caramel Apples I followed the directions on the caramel bag, but then drizzled with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and topped with mini-chocolate chips and nonpareils (you can try Giada's recipe HERE on Food Network)

 Bugle Witch Hats - I dipped Chocolate Peanut Butter Bugles into melted chocolate chips, rolled them in nonpareils, and stuck them onto fudge stripe cookies.

 Chocolate Monster Balls - I used the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Haystack recipe HERE and just added white chocolate chips for eyes.

Ghost Nutter Butter Pops and Oreo Pops - I used the tutorial from HowDoesShe shown HERE and HERE.

All of the paper crafts like the "Trick or Treat" banner, "BOO" sign on Nutter Butter Pop display, cupcake toppers, and labels came from the Sweet Metel Moments Halloween collection.  Stay tuned for an upcoming post on what to do with leftover Halloween candy!
