The best holidays involve getting dressed up in ridiculous clothes, pretending to be someone you aren’t, and eating your high school graduation weight in chocolate, am I right?
I am right.
Sure, we say it’s for the kids, but I defy ANY of you to say you don’t sit down and go through your innocent sleeping child’s trick-or-treat bag after the precious little vampire is tucked away in bed. You DO. You dig out the good stuff and leave them with the Smarties.
That being said, Halloween is also a really fun time for making treats. Even bad decorators are in the clear at Halloween – scary is IN. Make a cupcake look hairy, add eyeballs or spiders, and you’ve got a winner. Last year, I made these creepy cupcakes, and Seven’s class ADORED them.
Lucky for you, as I am one of McCormick’s Spooky Squad this year, I have a little help from my friends to assist you in those Spooky endeavors. I happen to have an identical kit to this one I am giving away, and it’s just waiting for me to return home and put it to good use! I’m still scheming up a plan, but…What would YOU do with it??
