When Kevin was small, Halloween was a big deal at my house. We'd plan for costumes for months, I'd make all kinds of crafts and fun foods, we'd decorate the house, and more. One year I turned my house into a spider farm (with plastic spiders of course), and another we hosted Kevin's friends for a pumpkin carving party.
Witch finger cookies are always fun to make and ghost meringues are pretty cute, too.
If you are looking for fun but super easy, a few years ago I popped these yogurt covered pretzels all over some brownies for a quick ghoulish look, since Halloween leaves us all with places to go, things to do, and kids to wrangle, right?
While you are working on getting your Halloween on, why not enter to win this really great basket from Kraft? You can check out my recipe for Halloween whoopie pie cookies, and don't forget to enter the Philly Me contest, where you will have a chance to win Philly for a whole year! Just submit a photo of how you enjoy your Philly, and every day until November 4th, someone will win 24 coupons for free Philadelphia cream cheese products, valued at approx $120. That's a lot of Philly!
But why stop there? You can win here, too. I have another lovely basket from the folks over at Philly Canada to give away to a lucky reader. Fall is a great time to get a bunch of things to bake with, and the folks at Kraft want to load you up with all kinds of great goodies. I have to say that the prize may not contain all the things as shown. You will get a basket full of Kraft products valued at $50.
