    Hello, i believe that i saw you visited my web site so i came to go back the desire?.I’m attempting to to find things to enhance my website!I guess its good enough to use a few of your concepts!!

  2. Ellen

    I made the graveyard brownies last night. They were both really easy and really fun to make. I used Ghiradelli brownie mix, Betty Crocker whipped milk chocolate frosting, mint Milano cookies, and a tube of choloate decorating frosting. And then Oreos and the autumn mix of pumpkins and candy corn. The girls at the office went bonkers when I passed them out today. Definitely recommend them!!

  3. Anilu

    Those monster eyeballs are looking so fresh, feels like plucking them.
    So sorry for RIP, feels like digging them from their graves.
    Peace!

  5. Curt

    I love the eyeballs! I love looking at all the different Halloween treats and scary stuff people come up with made out of food!

    Great and fun time of the year!

  6. Rosie @ Sweetapolita

    Jenny! I don’t even know where to begin. Ahh! I think the Shortbread Candy Corn Kissed Brownies are the ultimate, but they all look so good. Love’em! xo

  7. Sonya

    I haven’t seen the candy corn kisses this year and they aren’t on Hershey’s website. Have you found any this season??

  8. Liz (Little Bitty Bakes)

    Love those candy corn kissed brownies – they look so awesome! Halloween baking is so much fun, and I can only imagine how much more fun it is with kids!

  9. d.liff @ yelleBELLYboo

    These are all so adorable! My aunt has a halloween party every year – these are fantastic ideas for her to serve the little kids!

  10. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    Yum they all look so good! Thanks for highlighting some of your ‘older’ recipes.

  11. Kelly Senyei

    So many cute ideas, Jenny! It was so great getting to meet you in Nashville and I look forward to staying in touch!

  12. Lisa [With Style and Grace]

    What a great roundup! I’ll need to figure out how to make gluten-free puff pastry so I can make those mini pumpkin pie tarts – they were SO good last year [when I wasn’t GF]. First, I’m thinking I need to try your pumpkin spice & chocolate caramel corn.

  13. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    I still love the Mummy Dogs- the kids always love those things. Haven’t tried those candy corn kisses- guess I’ll have to go on the hunt for those this year!

  14. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    I dont even know where to begin and what to make first…it all looks….SOOO GOOD!! And cute. I even like your “scary” font you used on your watermark on your pics. Adorable in a scary way 🙂
