Halloween is a time for spooks and witches, but most of all? it is a time for candy and other good treats! Here are some of our absolute favorite Halloween treats:.· Candy corn. What is Halloween without these wonderful orange, white, and yellow treats? Yes, corn tastes good, but candy corn tastes better!.
· Caramel apples (or candied apples). These make are a great treat to buy during the Halloween season. Buy them from a specialty candy shop, the grocery store, or make them yourself! Carmel apples most definitely taste best with Granny Smith apples. The tartness of these green apples contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the caramel and other goodies you dip you apples in.· Apple cider.
Hot or cold, apple cider is a treat on Halloween, especially if you have some hot donuts to dip into it! Make sure that you go all out and buy fresh apple cider. It tastes so much better than the processed kind!.· Donuts. Alright, so donuts are not normally too associated with Halloween, but when you eat them with cider, they are divine! Choose some with orange and black sprinkles to make them ultra festive.
· Cooked pumpkin seeds. Everyone needs to carve out a jack-o-lantern on Halloween. Too often, a person will carve out a pumpkin and simply throw away all of the gook inside. These pumpkin seeds do not deserve to go into the trash! Clean them off, salt them up, add some spices like cayenne and paprika, bake them in the oven, and voila! You have a delicious Halloween treat.· Chili in a pumpkin "bowl." Take some small bowls, cut off the tops and empty them out like you normally would when making a jack-o-lantern.
Once they are hollow and clean, pour in your favorite soup, like chili. You can even replace the cut off top "lid" to keep the soup extra hot. You can be sure that everyone who you serve these to will be surprised and pleased to eat out of such a unique bowl.
· "Fun-sized" candy. These little candy bites have recently become a staple of Halloween. Many households give them out as trick-or-treat candy, often allowing children to grab a whole handful. Most of the major candy bar brands make "fun-sized" candy especially for Halloween.
Watch out, though, they may seem small, but after eating just three or so of these, you have eaten an entire candy bar's worth!.· Caramel popcorn. This stick treat is second only to the ever-popular candied apple.· Peeled grapes. All right, so peeled grapes are not truly a Halloween snack, but place them in a covered bowl and ask youngsters to stick their hand in.
Tell them that it is a bowl full of eyeballs, and they very likely will believe you!.Many mainstream cookie brands and candy brands as well as other brands are starting to make Halloween treats. Of course, these treats are generally just like their other food products, only orange and/or black in color. Sometimes, the only difference is the packaging.The best Halloween treats are, and always will be, the homemade kinds.
