Why is it that all common sense goes out the window on the night of October 31?  You dress in clothing items normally reserved for those living in mental institutions, dye your hair freaky colors, and make it your ultimate life’s mission to collect as much candy as humanly possible.

The morning of November 1, all is well.  You laugh with your children about all the fun of the previous evening, gladly sharing your bounty together multiple times a day.

November 2, you find reasons to walk through the kitchen and sample your proudly displayed candy while you stare lovingly at it’s new home – an antique glass container sitting in it’s place of pride on the kitchen counter.

November 3 you see how much of that candy is missing, and you promptly consider the muffin top you’ll be sporting for the next few months if you don’t get this candy out. of. your. house.  I don’t know about you, but the only way I’m able to do that is by smuggling it out in delicious, unique treats that friends and family won’t realize are, in fact, the dreaded bite-size horrors.  

Here are my twelve favorites:

1.) Snickers Caramel Apple Salad @ Chef in Training

 

2.) Reese’s Stuffed Peanut Butter Mug Cake @ The Frugal Foodie Mama

 

3.) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cheesecake @ Mom On Timeout

So am I the only one with absolutely no self control?  What do you do to make sure you don’t gorge yourself all your extra Halloween candy?  Whatever your plan of attack is, thanks for joining me today!  Toodles!!
