Ghost and Ghoul Treats

Posted on October 30, 2019 by dragonspitapothecary

My favorite things about Halloween as an adult is sitting on my front porch with a nice glass of red wine enjoying the warmth of the evening and handing out candy to all the little ones that come. Our neighborhood is one where there are tons of children so there is usually a non-stop flow of little tick-or-treaters all coming up our porch stairs in their cute princess, ninja and super hero costumes to get a snack and treat.

We are fortunate to live in a neighborhood where it’s small enough we know almost everyone and we’ve developed some good relationships over the years. Halloween is one of those special evenings where we can say hi to each other and enjoy a few minutes catching up while enjoying a stroll around the neighborhood checking out the decorations and listening to the giggles all along the street.

The treats of Halloween are equally fun. I usually have to buy huge bags of candy to make it through the evening and there will be some before and after sampling by my family of course. I also try to make something special like Wild Orange Cookie Brownies or Old Fashioned Cinnamon Popcorn Balls to share with neighbors or just have for our family. Halloween is one of those times we forego the calorie and carb counting and just enjoy the spoils of bountiful bags filled with treats!

Wild Orange Cookie-Brownies

These are a family favorite that I make throughout the year but near Halloween I change things up a bit to add a Halloween twist. To make these tasty treats:

1 bag Ghiradelli Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

1 bag Hershey Double Chocolate Brownie Mix

doTERRA Wild Orange

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix each bag separately.

Start with the brownie mix. Mix
