Halloween is creepin upon us

As you can see from my newly added Halloween count down, Halloween is creeping ever closing. Are you ready? I know I'm not but I have some things in the works.

First off, my costume. I am trying to work with a local girl to see if I can make a Samhain outfit from Trick 'r' Treat. I think it would be fantastic! So I will periodically keep people updated on that. I still need to make sure I can afford it.

The kitchen side of things. This year I want to make homemade Halloween candy. I've never made candy before so it's on big scary experiment. Luckily thanks to an awesome friend of mine I now have a candy thermometer. Speaking of this awesome friend, you can check out his site here: Undead In The Head.
What candy am I wanting to make? I have a small list so far:
-Pumpkin Seed Brittle
-Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice PB Cups (Might use almond butter)
-Homemade Almond Joy
-Pumpkin Spice Marshmellows
-Homemade Cow Tails

There's more, I just can't remember it all.
Stay tuned & happy haunting.
