Did you know October kicks off an entire month devoted to desserts and cookies?!
I’ve kept no secrets from you, you know I’ve got quite the sweet tooth so naturally this month brings me much joy. A entire month filled with desserts and cookies, count-me-in! Especially too when it’s filled with these healthier Halloween treats!
While the kiddos are off trick-or-treating, there’s got to be something for the adults to do, right? Bingo- that’s where I come in. Mr. CEO and I happened to have moved into the Sandlot neighborhood a few years ago and absolutely love the Fronsac cul-de-sac extravaganzas!
Though we definitely have had our share of fun times, I have to admit the Halloween Block Party happens to be my favorite. I absolutely LOVE seeing the cute little princesses and adorable pudgy pumpkins come strolling up the street carrying their tiny bags. Of course their hiding behind mom and dad, patiently waiting for that stranger to give them a handful of candy.
Wow, now that I think about, I don’t blame them for being scared! Hasn’t mom taught them NOT to take candy from strangers…? Oye-vey, so confusing I agree :)!
Besides the cute kiddos and great company, I love the opportunity I get to create a festive #simpleswap for my neighborhood family. They are some of the best taste testers I have, and it’s awesome knowing I can walk outside in my pjs and knock on any door to get feedback on the latest kitchen
disaster masterpiece I have been working on.
This year I’m still up in the air on what I’ll bring. I can tell you one thing for sure though, I’ll definitely be whipping up something devilishly chocolately! Though last years Pumpkin Muffins were a hit, I believe I need to step up my game and take some advice from the lovely bloggers all over the net.
Take a look below at some of the delicious eats and treats that I’d highly suggest you consider to include if you want to host a healthier Halloween. Happy almost Halloween….!!!!!!!!!!
