Halloween Treats

Halloween season is coming to an end so what better way to say goodbye than with some dessert! For the past 4 years, my brother, his now fiancée and myself host a Halloween party with all of our friends. I have always loved baking, probably because I love dessert and my dad enjoys to bake as well. I always make the dessert for the party because I like to get creative with it and I think it’s super fun!

Dig into these recipes and go get the ingredients! There’s still time to make them before Halloween officially ends! Happy Halloween everyone! Time to get spooky!
