Halloween 2011

There weren’t too many kids knocking at the door this year. Around a dozen or so. It was a School day and the strict time of 3 – 7 PM probably contributed to the low number.  The one costume I remember the most was Luigi ( from Super Mario).


This also means more leftover candy for me to munch on. I also tried a new candy this year, Wonka Chocolate Waterfall.

Except they were the bagged fun size version. The combo of Milk and White chocolate is really good.  I recommend that chocolate lovers out there give it a try.




Melted Tootsie Rolls candy

I had over 50 pieces of tootsie roll candy left over from Halloween and after reading the ingredients I decided to melt them in a saucepan, over medium heat. The end result is a cream sauce.  I don’t know what I’m going to do with it but at least I did something with them. Last year I just threw them out. Needless to say, it’s super sweet and thick but I have no idea what to apply it to.

I’m open to suggestions, just post a comment


Halloween 2010

The foot traffic at our home was an increase over last year by almost double. Even with the strict time frame  of 3-7 PM. There were a few costumes that stood out, Venom, Spider-Man, Witches and Princesses.

When the night was over I handed out around 60-80 pieces of candy. The 6 bags of candy I had was a bit overkill but now I have something to snack on. Perhaps next year I’ll actually hand out the candy while in costume or something.
