It used to be that we could whip up a batch of halloween treats for the trick or treaters, but for safety reasons most don’t go that route anymore. Concerned parents inspect the halloween goodies before they allow the kids to eat them. To be safe they usually pitch out anything that is homemade or unwrapped.
This shouldn’t stop you from making some absolutely goulish delights for friends and family though and here are some ideas to get you going.
Lets start with a favorite and thats the rice crispy treats…but with a halloween twist
