      Well your blog pics are sooo well done! Great giveaways!!! And so many chances!!! I’m actually not a Halloween person, but my sister in law REALLY is!!!! She wears a Witch tee shirt and loves Wizard of Oz!! This would be right up her alley so I’m entering and would give my winnings to her. My favorite candy would be mini 3 Musketeers. And I’m subscribed to your blog for a long time now.

        Love, love, love your giveaways!
        My favorite Halloween candies are candy corn and peanut butter kisses wrapped in orange or black paper. I could eat the whole bag!

      Give me those pumpkin shaped (or any shape for that matter) Reese Cups all day long! I adore Halloween. It’s just full of fun and tongue-in-cheek decorations.

      My favorite treats to have for halloween, besides like traditional candy such as mr.goodbar or pumpkin or ghost shaped reeses pb cups is 2 things we make every year as a tradition. One is roasted pumpkin seeds with oild and salt. My grandma loved this so when she passed years ago we continued the tradition. The second is the one thing only my husband can make for us, its homemade chex mix. Not with a seasoning pack either. He gets the 3 diffrent cereals and together and mixes them up with other ingredients and cooks them. Its always a yummy treat we sit down to after trick or treating has ended and we watch Garfields halloween.

      We do Halloween in a big way in my family! I have a few favorites – popcorn balls and peanut butter cups are my go-tos, but my absolute favorite is my sister’s rosemary apple galette. It’s made with all the love and it’s the most special treat!

    • Jax
      September 15, 2022 at 6:30 pm

      My favorite Halloween treat is witch hat cookies made with chocolate striped sugar cookies and Hershey kisses.

      I absolutely Love, Love, Love Halloween. It is my favorite holday season. So happy I wondered to your page looking for something else. You have given me some really great ideas for Halloween decor and treats. My favorite Halloween treat is most definitely Snickers or the Halloween peanut butter cups. I love them equally.

      I would also like to be a Black Hat Society member. I am following you on PinPics, and saved your site to Halloween on my PinPics.

      Happy Halloween!

    My favorite treat is homemade mini chocolate donut spiders. Simple to make by cutting a donut in half, adding pretzel rounds cut in half as spider legs and 2 edible wiggly eyes.
    Love your creativity! You have given me a few ideas.

  5. Barbara

      I pinned witches 🧙‍♀️ potion popcorn 🍿!! Looks
      Delicious !!

  8. September 15, 2022 at 6:47 am

    Snickers bars and caramels are the best at Hallowe’en. It’s fun to hand them out to the “little ones” who Trick or Treat. It’s always treats at my house. Happy Hallowe’en

  9. Cathy
    September 15, 2022 at 6:48 am

    What fun! I like pretty much all sweets but an absolute old-time couple of favorites are homemade cinnamon sugar doughnuts (my mother taught school so we only got these when we had “snow-days”), caramel apples, caramel corn and popcorn balls. With today’s emphasis on safety, I don’t give these to trick-or-treaters anymore but do make them for church treats since our small congregation knows each other. I hand out individually wrapped chocolate candies – a favorite is Reese’s peanut butter cups.

  10. Patti Packard Ustynoski
    September 15, 2022 at 7:20 am

    Maybe, I’m a little crazy. But I used to spill the Halloween candy bag and save all of the MaryJanes! I just love them!!

  14. Brenda
    September 15, 2022 at 7:37 am

    I pinned the ‘Spider Fluids’ plate picture into BlackHatSociety. My favorite candy is the Reese’s pumpkin and an occasional treat of a glass of wine. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I really enjoy your Halloween postings. Thank you!

      September 15, 2022 at 8:01 pm

      I also pinned the Spider Cookies to my Halloween board. My grandson will love those!

  15. September 15, 2022 at 7:41 am

    Hi Mary, oh my what lovely Halloween “give a ways!” 🎃 When I was a “trick or treater”, a long time ago, my favorite candy was Clark bar. Second to that were the caramel apples my neighbor would give to all the children in the neighborhood, so good!
    Thank you for all of your amazing ideas to celebrate Halloween. Your ideas and recipes always bring a smile to my face. I read your blog before the New York Times. Like they say, “dessert first.” Sarah

    Over the past several years, you have completely cast your spell of your love for Halloween on me! Now that baby J is in my life, I know seeing it through children’s eyes will be a whole new delightful experience. Tablesscaping has made it even more fun. I pinned the potting shed, loving that entire look, and of course I follow you. Since Reese cups are my favorites, that recipe of peanut butter cookies caught my attention. What a great celebratory giveaway for 9 lucky readers, Mary. [Witches’] hats off to you!

  18. Kathy
    September 15, 2022 at 7:48 am

    Fun projects with all the Halloweeniness! I still love the little chocolate bar candies – probably Almond Joy and Mounds the most. Reese’s cups are a close second.

    I love Reese’s and I make owl cookies, it brings back wonderful memories when my kiddos were little. I saw the little skeleton dog with a bone in his mouth looking at pics from your Halloween archives, it arrived last week, so excited, he’s so cute! Plus, I picked up a 5′ skeleton too, haven’t named he/her yet, but I’m going to have fun dressing it for the seasons, you bring out the magic in all of us! Thank You!

    Wow, what a generous giveaway! I always love your Halloween ideas and your blog has inspired many tables for my Bunco gals. I think I have more Halloween decor than Christmas, lol! I love candy corn and Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins. I’ve pinned two pictures – the spider cookies and the candy corn vase floral arrangement. I’m a long time subscriber. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

    As a long time subscriber and certified Halloween Nut Case, I always look forward to this post. But I simply can’t believe it’s already been a year since last year’s Meeting of the Black Hat Society. WOW! Not only do witches fly but time does too!!! As far as candy treats go, I think this year I fall into the Reese’s Peanut Butter cup fan club…love the pumpkin shaped ones! But I must say the biggest and best “treat” of all is this wonderful giveaway that you do each year, Mary, and I thank you very much for it. Happy Halloween!

An all time favorite for any evil BHS witch would be the candy apple.. but as for this good witch I would have to say a homemade popcorn ball! Thank you for some new posts that I added to my Halloween Living Pinterest board. Please do give the sweet pups a pet for me..

    Wow! Exciting blog. I love Halloween also although we don’t get trick-or-treaters. I pinned the Spider Fluids square plate! I love it. I would put my favorite candy, mini peanut butter cups on this plate for any witches stopping by for some brew (or merlot since I live in the Napa Valley). We are happy to fly to our daughter’s for Halloween and pass out ‘treats’ to little horrors that dare to come by.

    Such a beautiful page and fun giveaway. I’m definitely a holiday of any kind lover, so Halloween is definitely a great time of year in my home. My favourite candy has to be mini chocolate bars of almost any type, probably 3 musketeers or mars bars (why does everything mini taste better). Love you blog, so inspirational ❤️

  91. September 15, 2022 at 12:08 pm

    Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my long time favorite. That said, Aldi has some that are SUPER DELICIOUS and don’t require unwrapping. The texture is so creamy and smooth. (Can you tell that I am talking myself into buying a bag?)

  92. September 15, 2022 at 12:09 pm

  119. September 15, 2022 at 3:23 pm

    I just love your table settings and treats! So much (pardon the pun) eye candy! My favorite Halloween treats are butterfingers and candy corn. Homemade popcorn balls are yummy too. I love Halloween and all the cute little ones that come trick or treating. Especially fun, since we live in a historic home built in 1887.

    Mary, thank you for the boo-tiful Halloween tablescape ideas and recipes! Now that my girls are older and don’t trick or treat anymore, we do a family Halloween party instead. The girls really enjoy decorating for the occasion and making cute and spooky treats. We will definitely be making the peanut butter spider cookies this year as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are our all time favorite candy. I have followed you on Pinterest for quite some time and subscribe to your blog too. You have provided so much inspiration for our parties and get-togethers through the years. In preparation for this year’s Brew Ha-Ha, I have pinned lots of your recipes to my boards Halloween Spirit~Sweets & Treats~, and Halloween Spirit~ Witches Brew Tea Party~ (@Jane’s Victorian Home). Again, thank you for the inspiration — and kisses to your precious girls, Sophie and Lola.

    Mary, your Black Hat Society is a generous group. Not one, but ten winners! Each gift is certainly fun. I had so much fun scrolling through these photos again and again. I love your enthusiasm. I wish I were hosting a party!
    In the absence of Halloween parties here, I’ve passed along most of my Halloween dishes to my niece. She and her friends host a big Halloween party each year, so thought it would be appropriate to let a new chapter of the Black Hat Society use these fun dishes. I’m also forwarding the link to this post. She needs to save off all of these darling ideas and use them!
    I’ll look forward to what clever ideas are in your bag of tricks for this Halloween.

    The Black Hat Society… OH, this does warm my heart!! Having ones birthday the day before Halloween and your best friends actually on Halloween I developed a strong interest in early adulthood towards Witchcraft. Although my darkest is Very dark grey, the BLACK Hat lends that added spark to the occasion. Over the years I have always loved warm, mini Donuts tossed in a bag with cinnamon & sugar, homemade Carmel apples, my Pumpkin meltaway cookies (to die for), and as far as “candy”… I have to say Butterfinger, Snickers, Hershey’s miniatures, and Reese’s.

    Oh Mary, this is just an amazing post! So much fun for the eyes to see and enjoy! My favorite Halloween candy when I was young was anything chocolate! However, as I grew older I realized chocolate was triggering my migraines. So as an adult it’s either skittles or starburst. I’m already a subscriber via email and love all your blogs! 💛🍂🧡🍁❤️

    Mary, I love how you decorate for Halloween! I get obssessed with wanting to create some of the things you’ve done. I love the cute cups and plates and the tussie mussies you’ve created. I actually made some of them last year to give to some special people at school!
    I really love candy corn, Clark candy bars, Reeces PB cups, Snickers and Milky Way bars. I can’t just settle on one favorite thing.

  149. Deborah Paradis
    September 15, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    I so enjoyed this post. We do a Fall/Halloween party every year for the grandkids mostly (wink, wink). There’s so much fun in the prep and doing. You have such a lovely party here! Great ideas! I just found your blog a few weeks ago; glad I did! My favorite Halloween candy is still the same today as it was as a kid. I would get home, have all of my goodies approved and off I’d go to sort it by types. The chocolate pile always won hands down!!! 🥰

    Hi Mary,

    Spooktakular giveaway and what a great way to kick off the season! I chose to pin three photos: 1) Your girls on the porch setting the mood for the season, 2) your centerpiece with candy corn-filled vase and peeps on “stems”, and 3) one of your giveaway offerings. I think I have already pinned all your other photos!

    • September 15, 2022 at 9:04 pm

      Oh my word, Mary, you are so generous with your giveaways. I am thankful to still be enjoying a past Halloween giveaway of yours. You make people happy with your kindness. 🎃👻🎃

  151. Betsy
    September 15, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    My favorite treat would be the fresh apple pie we pick up from one of the farms up at Apple Hill, a popular farming community in our area that goes all out for fall. Last year I bought only half of a pie for my husband and I. This year I’m buying a whole pie, and perhaps a second one for the freezer.

    Wait, maybe Apple Hill’s fresh apple cider doughnuts are my favorite. Not sure. I’d better do a taste test this year…just to be sure. Wink-wink!

  152. Anne
    September 15, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Beautiful post and what amazing gifts! You always do everything so nice.
    My favorite all time Halloween treat is Mrs. Brown’s Popcorn Balls. When I was a little girl Trick or Treating in the neighborhood she always made them every year from scratch. Wrapped in wax paper and tied with string. I can only imagine how many she made each year. They were the best! My cloth Halloween trick or treat bag smelled like them each year when we got it back out.
    I’d give anything to have one now. But, a good Reese’s Peanut Butter cup will do in a pinch.

  153. September 15, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    What a fun post! You are so creative and your photography is amazing!
    I enjoy Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as Pumpkins. I pinned several of your Halloween pictures to my Favorites Blog Board on Pinterest. Such hauntingly adorable ideas! Thank you!
    Happy Halloween!

    What fun! And the cutest Halloween crafts!!! When I was a kid, many moons ago, my Mom would get yummy donuts. Then I always did the same for my kids. So my treat, donuts it is and Apple cider! But I must say I am thinking of making the popcorn treat for a party. Just LOVE the pics and the creativity. Going to pin that recipe!

    I love giving away snacks of snickers, Milky Way, and other bite-size treats that I have ready at the door in a big cauldron, as I’m wearing my huge witch’s hat. My own favorite is candy corn but I must admit I actually broke a tooth on it once!

    I LOVE Halloween! My favorite candies this time of year are all the seasonal mini’s like Reese’s, Kit Kats, and Hershey’s assorted bars, my daughter and her friends have all graduated from college, but they still come over often and i still have a large bowl of peanut M&M’s on the spooky entry table. I have enjoyed your blog for years. BOO!

    A couple of my most favorite Halloween treats are the original candy apples made with the red cinnamon candy and fresh homemade glazed donuts. I can’t pick just one favorite candy, but Mounds bars are what I look forward to and appreciate the most because Halloween is the only time I get them, and I’m always so glad they haven’t disappeared.
