Halloween Popcorn Mix

It’s officially October, I’m now allowed to post ghoulish treats to my heart’s content without backlash. Eeeeeeee hee hee hee hee hee!

 

I do get a little excited this time of year. The moment I feel a chill in the air, I’m ready to dig out my Halloween decorations, and put on my tall creepy hat and feathered boa.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I really don’t see why I can’t strut around in my Halloween hat all year long, but Lt. Dan won’t let me.

…Something about special occasions and dignity, I don’t know.

Making Halloween Popcorn Mix

Anyway, this is the month of conspicuous costumes, frightful fun, and dreadfully decorative dishes. We’re already planning all the menacing munchies we’ll serve Halloween night and this popcorn mix is on the list.

    The Trick-or-treating festivities……giving out the treats (special ones for the kids we know) and “oooohing & awwwwing” over each & everyone one of the kiddos.

    Mostly, I love my kids excitement about dressing up and the carnival their school has.
    Otherwise, I could easily skip Halloween.
    I just ordered my kids costumes from Chasing Fireflies. They’re scheduled to ship hopefully today!

    My favorite thing about Halloween is watching the children. I love when they come to the door in their “scariest” or “prettiest” costumes and get excited about getting treats.

  32. Trishposted October 5, 2012 at 12:43 pm Reply

    This may sound silly, but the thing I like most about Halloween is watching all of the children run around in their costumes and getting to pretend to be whom ever or what ever they want to be! Its great to see all of the creative costumes and the children having so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win!

    My favorite part about this holiday is the candy. Honest to goodness. I can’t wait to go trick or treating with the little one.. she might be disappointed to see that she can’t have any kit kats, or twix bars, or reese’s. ;-)

    To me the best part of Halloween is seeing the excitement in my daughter’s face. The days leading up to the holiday are filled with dreams of candy and scary things all around. Alex can’t wait to get out there and have everyone see her in her costume and then trick or treat around the area.
    That’s what I love about Halloween!
