It’s coming: Halloween! Yesterday I purchased all of the goodie bags that I’ll be filling and handing out to all of the trick or treaters on the 31st; now I just have to purchase the tons of candy that I will need for the 300 + ghost and goblins that normally knock on my more.
When we moved here 8 years ago, I had no idea just how big Halloween was in our little neighborhood; in our small town. I’ve since then learned and become prepared.
We normally keep dinner pretty simply on Halloween, sticking to a fun Jack-o-lantern pizza or something else creepy and tasty, but I always like to have a tasty punch and yummy treats to snack on.
This year I’m pretty excited because not only is Halloween on a Saturday, but it’s also Noah’s last soccer game of the season and my Dad will be up visiting!
When I stocked up on stuff at Target yesterday, I also grabbed some of the new Halloween cereals from General Mills: Count Chocula®, Boo Berry®, and Franken Berry®!
They are going to be fun for our Halloween breakfast together, and a great addition for my Halloween dessert treats. If you buy all three boxes you can also use them to assemble this fun Halloween castle that can be added to your Halloween decor (and great for the kids to play with!).
Here’s a fun blondie recipe that you can use and incorporate these tasty cereals into for your Halloween celebrations:
Halloween Boo Berry Bars
