Happy Halloween!

Big plans for Halloween this year!  

Just got off of a big sugar binge put together by my friends Singing Bee and the More Creative Bee.  This past Sunday was the bakeathon to end all bakeathons.  We frosted and we baked and we assembled and we decorated and we.....had.....so much......FUN!  My favorite moment was when all the rice krispy Frankensteins made a run for it to escape the fridge and they were stuck to the door, stuck to the salad dressing, out on the floor.....such a mess!  But I don't know the last time I laughed so hard my sides hurt.  

Wanna' see what we made?  (Who am I kidding - I KNOW you want to see!  And I know you really want to reach out and grab a bit too!)

1.  The aforementioned rice krispy Frankensteins
turned out so stinkin' cute!  The Singing Bee did this one all by herself!  

2.  Trick or Treat cookies
just a basic sugar cookie but MCB cut up all kinds of candy bars and caramels to stuff inside them.  

3.  Reese's PB Cup brooms
way simple but oh so cute.

4.  Witch Hats
another easy one - Hershey Kisses, Keebler Striped Shortbreads and some orange icing.  A little squire, plop on the kiss and done.

5.  Nutter Butter ghost cookies
just dunk in white chocolate and use sprinkles for eyes.

6.  Dried apricots dunked in dark chocolate with crushed pumpkin seeds on them
our healthy option (and so yummy, I'm keeping some for myself).

7.  Hershey Kisses Pumpkin Spice Cookies
very interesting little candy and the cookie is just so scrumptious with it.

8.  Not sure what to call these - a peanut butter cookie base with a Reese's PB Cup in the middle with
a candy corn or little bloody bone candy on top.  (A bloody bone candy?  Really?  Who thinks of these things?)

9.  And Jello Popcorn in Halloween colors
orange, lime, and grape!  

And no Halloween would be complete without some fun costumes.

Baby Bee is going as Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games.  I'll have to get pictures tomorrow.

And what am I going to be?  Why an IDIOM of course!  (No....not THAT....and idiom....you know like busy as a bee or let the cat out of the bag or my head is in the clouds today.)

Can you guess what idiom I am going to be?
(Hint:  It's raining ______ and ______.)

Happy Halloween to you!
