The more menacing a Halloween Dessert looks, the more my kids love it!

Around here, I think of the grossest, most disturbing things, like a nest with thousands of tiny spiders hatching out of eggs, make a treat out of it, and win the mommy of the year award.

It’s twisted.

    Wow! Just in time for Halloween, and I tried this at home. Although it didn’t come out as good-looking as it looks here, it defo made my daughter ecstatic. She stuffed it with a dose of m&ms and finished it in no time. Need to up my dessert game, and I will be trying it again this weekend to perfect it. Thanks, Sommer.
