Halloween Snacks

The fun, spooky spirit of Halloween trickles into everything at the end of October, so embrace the holiday by creating a spread of ghoulish nibbles. Halloween snack recipes let you have a ton of fun: Dip pretzels into white chocolate and apply two tiny chocolate "eyes" and presto-instant ghosts on a stick. Caramel apples are a classic, and you can make them even more decadent by rolling them in chopped nuts or colorful sprinkles. And what says Halloween better than toasted pumpkin seeds? If you're craving a sweet-salty combo, pop up some corn for old-fashioned popcorn balls. Throw in a DVD of Charlie Brown waiting for the Great Pumpkin, and you've got a perfect family movie night.
