10 Spooky Sweets and Treats for Halloween

Celebrate the Halloween season with these spooky sweets from my fellow foodie bloggers!

Halloween is only a few weeks ago, but admittedly, Adam and I have been preparing for a couple of months now! Our love of this spooky season was one of the first things we discovered we both had in common when we were friends as teenagers. 

The first time Adam and I hung out alone together without the rest of our friends was when we were still in high school, and we watched the movie Halloween in his living room and then he spent hours showing me spooky YouTube videos he found online. Half of the videos were ridiculous pop-ups of scary witches and ghosts that would just come up on the screen while it was quiet, and every single time it scared the living poop emoji out of me and then we would start laughing so hard we started to tear up. I like to be scared, and he liked to scare me. So it would seem like a match made in Heaven in the works even from when we were "just friends" in high school.

I was an aggressive young lady--you know, in the way that was like "hey, I think you're cute maybe we should make out?" kind of way. And Adam was shy and had never been talked to that way. But even as a young woman I was the kind of person who knew what she wanted, and was not afraid to ask for it. 

So as an homage to our first time really spending quality time together and getting to know each other, Adam and I watch Halloween every year and laugh about how awkward we were together when we were just figuring out the dynamic of our relationship, and how much my interest in him at the time actually terrified him more than those scary YouTube videos scared me. 

Today, I am sharing a curated collection of spooky sweets perfect for your Halloween festivities (including this Halloween Freakshake shown above from Supper in the Suburbs blog!)
