    Butterfingers are my favorite. I used to tell my kids I thought they may have been tampered with and I would have to take them out of their bags and check them myself. They eventually caught on as they got older but love, love, love them!

    To be honest, I want to win those shoes!!! They are too CUTE. I need a pair to add to my witch outfit that I wear when answering the door to Trick or Treaters. ;-)

    HAPPY FALL YA’LL!!!! My very most favorite holiday is HALLOWEEN .. my very own little ‘pumpkin’ was born on that day! She will be 45 this coming Halloween and has blessed us with 4 little ‘pumpkin-ette’ grandchildren! THEIR favorite Halloween Treat is “SCARY LIPS” …. slice apples (both red and green) .. slather with peanut butter or icky-colored candy coating .. then add ‘bad teeth’ .. they love to get creative with the teeth … (marshmallows ‘smuddied’ up with chocolate or licorice teeth or green celery ‘teeth’ . or anything their imaginiations conjure up each year. Thanks Mary for all the wonderful inspiration you share .. your wonderful blog is my ‘go to’ when entertaining little kids and BIG kids (my age!). xoxo, Frannie

    • franniemeshorer
      September 23, 2015 at 9:43 am

      hope that made sense (couldn’t post a photo) … directions for Scary Lips: the two slices of apples are the ‘lips with ‘yucky teeth’ between them. Bottom Lip .. (coating like peanut butter) .. Teeth .. (more coating) then top Lip

  73. September 23, 2015 at 9:41 am

    I love popcorn balls…they always remind me of my grandma as she always made them to give the trick or treaters (when homemade treats were still possible!). I follow on Facebook and email and love to tell my friends about your posts and pester them to sign up telling them that they will never be disappointed in your wonderful posts. Happy Halloween, Mary!

  74. September 23, 2015 at 9:43 am

    For our goblins, we shop for mini Heath Bars ~ they are yums. But they are not as plentiful as other seasonal candies. And we need them for baking Maida Heatter’s Heath Bar cookies ~ the packaged chips just don’t do it. Thank you for your year round inspiration. Halloween being a favorite event, we especially enjoy your reminders!

  75. September 23, 2015 at 9:47 am

    Autumn and Halloween are my favorite time of year (next to Christmas) so it’s hard to say because it changes by the day! Today it is a caramel apple! Tomorrow it might be something made with pumpkin or a great martini created for the season. . . or ??? I just can’t make up my mind!

    You always hit it out of the ballpark, but I’ve gotta say that this time you’ve outdone yourself! So stinkin’ good! I’m a chocoholic at heart so I’m happy with just about any kind of candy but I admit to buying an extra bag of Kit Kats that don’t make it to the trick-or-treaters’ bags! Thanks so much for the opportunity – my fingers are crossed!

    I, too am a member of the Black Hat Society. My favorite Halloween treat is to watch the expression of my Trick or Treaters faces when I invite them to select a full size candy bar from my tray of about 15 different kinds of candy. Snack size candy has its place, but on Halloween I like to harken back to my own childhood. So, and I am showing my age, my little guests are treated to what in the “good old days” was a nickel candy bar. Some of the reactions are priceless. MM

    My old time favorite candy at Halloween is the Peanut Butter Kisses, especially the ones they made 30 years ago with the real peanut butter that would squeeze out of the kiss when you chewed it.

  123. Belinda Sanford
    September 23, 2015 at 12:53 pm

    Yep – we witches need to stick together!!! My favorite Halloween treat is to make dips like spinach dip and place a spooky stencil on top of it – then sprinkle paprika all over and then remove the stencil –it leaves a fun pattern on top.

    Your posts rock!
    Happy Halloween.

  124. September 23, 2015 at 12:54 pm

    My favorite all-time Halloween treat was my grandmother’s popcorn balls and my second favorite are the mini Mars Bars, but sometimes they’re difficult to find. I just love your tablescape with the clear plates and spooky labels… creepy and elegant all at the same time! But then I always love your tablescapes! Please give some extra squeezes to your precious pups!

    My fave halloween treat is candy corn, but I really love the Indian corn with the brown end on it. This year Brach’s came up with Sea Salt Chocolate candy corn. Don’t get it. It’s horrible. Not sure how to share this on Facebook, but I’ll go see if I can figure it out. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    What a fantastic Halloween party you have conjured up. Certainly would make any coven proud.
    I think my favorite treats for Halloween is the dipped apples and pretzels. The neat thing about them is that you can get as creative as you wanna be and add all kinds of goodies. The sprinkles over the past couple of years are so varied and so much fun, it can be a great family affair with everyone getting to do their own thing. :)

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. One year my husband and I had a dinner party. He made spaghetti in orange colored peppers. He mixed in some plastic cockroaches in the dish. He also put slices of prosciutto on a Styrofoam head as a centerpiece. This is the only time of year we could get away with this. We all had lots of laughs and will never forget that year.

    I’m a bit boring and traditional here, I suppose, but I like Snickers miniatures. At least I branched out this year and got the bag with three different flavors of Snickers. But I’m definitely all in for the month of October. Hubby and I both celebrate (or not) our birthdays, and we eloped and got married on Halloween…..34 years ago. Now that’s scary!

    And I just subscribed yesterday to follow you via email. You and your blog are truly amazing.

    I have to say I originally started following you because of your creative pontoon decor. We just bought a new pontoon boat and was intrigued by your array of “pontoon” seasons. Now that I have seen your blog for a couple of months I am so impressed. You truly have a gift and apparently a lot of space to store decorations! Well done…Happy Fall:)
