We've shared a few healthy swaps for Halloween throughout the last few weeks, but let's be realistic for a moment, shall we? Tomorrow is Oct. 31st, and the kiddos are going to want candy... at least a little bit of their fave sugary goodies and some caramel-stuffed chocolates to satisfy those wicked cravings!
I try to steer clear of the candies as much as possible, but I do know it goes with the terrifying territory of the spooktacular day and hyperactive night. Of course, I try to convince my kids to swap out their candy loot for a goodie we bake or make together instead. (At least I can control the ingredients in my scary-good ghost cupcakes!)
Plus, making something crafty and delicious together after an hour or two of trick-or-treating is a great way for the kids to decompress. Pop some pumpkin muffins in the oven, pull out a craft project put on a not-so-spooky movie, pour the wine (for yourself, of course) and enjoy the night. We're sharing a few ideas for your boo-tastic baking inspiration! Have a happy and safe Halloween!
P.S. Don't have the time or energy to bake on Halloween after a busy day of costumes and candy? You can still pull off a cute and crafty treat for the kids. This is ghostly hot chocolate! Just add whipped cream, candy eye balls, and a Halloween Peep. Or try this Candy Corn Hot Cocoa to warm up after trick or treating.
