Halloween party preparations started early in the day for us because we take Halloween very seriously. My bangs friend and I got a little crazy in the kitchen and even cut into my 8 lb egg to get us started in the baking extravaganza.
Have you seen that chocolate bark with every candy ever invented on top thing on Pinterest yet… yes, people do actually make that and it looked more like art than a dessert.
It deserves its own close-up. She topped the dark chocolate with m&ms, candy corn, peanuts, butterfingers and reese’s.
I finally made those incredible Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars that I have been talking obsessively about the last 86 hours. I had a huge accomplishment yesterday. Billy told me that these were the BEST DESSERT I have ever made. This is huge. Billy isn’t much of a dessert person (especially the desserts I make because I tend to make things that are way too packed with sugar and 5 trillion ingredients) but he loved these. Finally. This is all I need in life.
Right when we got to the party our little lobster fell into a deep sleep.
We started off with sandwiches, pumpkin chili, chips and guac and mummy hotdogs.
They had a bobbing for apples competition and below is the winner… 1.9 seconds. I refused to try it because I knew I would end up crying in front of everyone if I didn’t win, I am just a little competitive.
All of the girls.
Brooke got way too hot in her lobster costume and she was so sad that we had to take it off of her especially because her bff was still in her costume. Brooke was hoping that Brooklyn would hold hands with her.
Hello dessert happiness. Chocolate bark (1 of 48), my cheesecake and a really good pumpkin chocolate chip muffin.
The costume contest prize went to the kid on the left. He dressed up and acted exactly like the kid on the right. I always wonder what someone would dress up like if they wanted to be me for Halloween and I think it would involve not washing your hair for 8 days, a lot of purple, at least 5 stains on your shirt and pants and 3 missing toenails.
What is the best/coolest/most creative costume you have ever seen?
What would you say is the BEST dessert you have ever made?
If someone was to dress up like you for Halloween what would they wear?
