Let’s not forget that it is now November. I have no idea where this year went, and I can’t decide whether I’m happy or sad to have it behind me. But that is beside the point. The point is, it’s fall, and I needed some fall flavors in these bars.
Because, y’all?! My friends are back!! And we’ve gathered up some amazing-awesome Halloween recipes just for you. Because that’s the kind of friends we are.
Let’s just say you wanted to put together a fun Halloween party for your kids. Or your friends. Or your kids friends. Or your friends kids. Whatever. And let’s just say you didn’t want to spend a day and a half baking fancy treats and making complicated crafty decorations. You might like some fun Halloween ideas like those I’ve collected for you today.
Toffee is one of my favorite candies. Butter + Sugar… what’s not to love? I wanted to add a little salt to my sweet (salty + sweet is the best flavor combo) so I poured my toffee over pretzels. Pretzels go great with basically everything, if you ask me.
I’ll tell you the truth… I’m not a big fan of making bread. All the kneading and waiting for it to rise and hoping your yeast is still good is just too much for me.
But I will do it on occasion when the recipe is right. And folks, this recipe is RIGHT.
I love this dip served warm, all the melted cheese and spices make it so comforting and delicious. I figured I needed a pretzel rod with it, something that could hold up to the strength of the mustard dip.
It all made me think about treats that can be made and cleaned up quickly and easily. I mean, you don’t have to be camping to want THAT, do you? I compiled a few of my favorites for you.
I love horseradish. I know it’s not for everyone, I get that, but Oh. My. Gosh. the stuff is soooo good. Oh, I love dill too. I’m such a glutton, I love everything.
I have no patience for complicated recipes and doing dishes and stuff like that. Give me something I can whip together in 5 minutes in one bowl and satisfy my cravings. Otherwise, I’m left to raiding the cupboards, searching for leftover Easter candy.
I was actually worried the family would devour it before I had a chance to photograph it, because I left the house for several hours, while the Hippie Chick and I attended a bridal shower. You never know what will happen to those unattended treats in a houseful of boys.
I spotted lemon flavored marshmallows at the grocery store around Easter, and I’ve had them rolling around in my head ever since then. I finally came up with a great idea (namely, this popcorn) and when I went back to the store to get them, they were conspicuously missing. Dang those seasonal ingredients!
