      I propose as of October 1st each member adds a favorite Halloween goodie recipe that is either handed down through generations, a favorite one from a magazine or even something you just happened to put together and it was fabulous.  It will be fun to see what we all come up with.

        • Mine aren’t so much as recipes but more as traditions....

          My mom always had Halloween at her house. This was after a month long of Devils Nights and Pranks.

          She would serve Hotdogs that were sliced in the middle and cheez in it then bacon wrapped around it all.....baked.

          The menu also included beans n franks camp fire style
          And of course things like pickles,candied apples, and halloween candy bought just for us.

          It was always a party and everyone in the family was there.

          So no special treats to make but just a special tradition.

        • This is an alcoholic treat...thought it would add a splash of “terror”

          Ghost in the Graveyard

          2 oz. black vodka
          2 oz. creme de cacao
          or coffee flavored liqueur
          1 scoop vanilla ice cream
          pinch of finely grated nutmeg

          In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao (or coffee liqueur) and set aside.

          Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a highball glass and slowly pour the vodka mixture over ice cream.

          Garnish with nutmeg and serve immediately.estatic

        • Wasn’t able to contribute to Halloween exchange but just wanted to say ...
          as a child we had a lady at church who made special treats which were ice cream cones with something filled in them on top of a cookie, decorated like a witches’ hat. They were delicious and our church had our own Halloween party & church services the next day for All Saints Day. We were encouraged to dress up as angels, fairies, clowns but nothing gory or scary.
          They figured we were better off being at church than on the streets.
