It’s that time of year again when we make all of our Halloween fun foods to amaze and astonish our friends and family. So far, everything I’ve made this season has been a disaster. (You should see what I did to the eyeball cake pops.) Tomorrow’s a get-together at my mom and dad’s, so I threw together a few spooky treats. The kids will love them although I destroyed most of them during the decorating phase. Who’s going to know? They look like the kids helped decorate them, and that’s the story I’m going with.
