Over the last few years I have got more and more excited about Halloween. I think it stemmed from starting to take the gremlin trick or treating. I completely changed my mind on trick or treating as I used to be against it really. But seeing my eldest get all dressed up and how completely excited she was, made me melt, like a soppy candle!! We have started decorating the house a little more, carving pumpkins and watching spooky films. Even my middle child is more excited this year though I am sure she doesn’t have a clue what it is!! I’m not always that creative in the kitchen but this is something, I am trying to change with more cooking and recipes on the blog for you. I thought some Halloween dessert recipes would be fun this year.
I decided to ask some of the talented blogging community for their recipes and ideas and of course they did not fail me!
