Chocolate Candy Corn Cupcakes

Chocolate Candy Corn Cupcakes by Taryn at Life and Sprinkles! These chocolatey cupcakes are filled with extra chocolate chips and topped with a sweet and creamy milk chocolate frosting. They're decorated with candy corn, mellowcremes and Sprinkle Pop "All Hallows" sprinkle mix.  Growing up, I was NEVER into the fruity candy- Skittles, Starburst, Sour Patch Kids. I only wanted the chocolate...except for candy corn. I'm not sure what it is about candy corn, but I could eat an entire bag. I think it's the honey component that makes me crave the sweetness and texture.  Nothing beats trick or treating when you're...

Butterfinger Fudge

Butterfinger Fudge by Andrea at Whisk and Knife Homemade costumes, a pillowcase for my candy haul, and spreading my treats on the kitchen table making trades with my brother and cousins are the sweetest memories from my Trick-or-Treating days as a kid.  Back then, Trick-or-Treating was anything but fancy, but the nostalgia is a treasure itself.  Every year, I was faced with the important decision of “witch” or “hobo”; either choice was a result of old hand me down clothes and a little face paint.  More than the costume, the night of Trick-or-Treating was mostly about the candy and how...

Chocolate Hazelnut Ganache Tarts

Chocolate Hazelnut Ganache Tarts by Jaina at Cocoa and Silk Being completely honest, growing up I never really went trick or treating…don’t judge me! I’m not sure if it was the area I grew up in, or simply the fact that it was a less popular holiday in the UK, but it wasn’t something my family or I ever did. As I entered high school, I met my best friend who just happened to be born on Halloween. 14 years later she married my brother and they now have two beautiful kids, which means Halloween is officially an event for us...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Cakes

Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Cakes Recipe from Rebecca at Roses and Whiskers   My family is big on traditions. Every Halloween, we’d eat English muffin pizzas, drink hot chocolate or apple cider and go trick-or-treating. When I outgrew trick-or-treating (what a sad day!) I’d watch Hocus Pocus instead. And of course I always ate Halloween candy! I remember sitting in my room when I was supposed to be asleep and combing through my loot with a flashlight. I’d sort the candy into piles so that I could save the best for last.  Reese’s, M&Ms and Snickers were always my favorite....

Pumpkin Tootsie Roll Cake

Pumpkin Tootsie Roll Cake from Caked by Katie The scent of rotting leaves, faintly singed pumpkin, and the crisp night air. All those smells together could only mean one thing. It was Halloween. Most kids love Halloween, right?! What’s not to love about free candy. But when I say that I loved Halloween I mean that I LOVED Halloween. Maybe it’s the fact that I have a killer sweet tooth or perhaps the competitive spirit within me relished at the chance to be the kid to hit the most houses, trick-or-treat the longest, and collect the most candy. My sisters...
