Halloween is just around the corner, and we’re sure to have loads of candies! That might also mean trips to the dentist or tummy aches. Hopefully not! But giving candies away is so mainstream. Why don’t we steer away from the traditional candies and make something totally unexpected?
Sure, you can still include candies in your Halloween menu but why don’t you try some of these? If you don’t want to give them away for Trick or Treat, then your kids will totally enjoy lunch or dinner with these recipes.
