Welcome to the Halloween Edition of the Carnival of the Recipes, otherwise known as CotR #115.
With Halloween just around the corner, we have some really scrummy (that's scrumptious AND yummy, in case you're wondering) recipes for you to try in this week's roundup.
For those of you who don't do Halloween, pardon my zeal, but I won't be decorating the house this year, so this is kind of a blog-substitute.
Now, on with the show!
Seriously Trick or Treat stuff for Serious Halloweenies:
Renata Vincoletto presents Giant Twix. Now THAT's a big treat. Or is it a trick?
More sweets and treats from KeeWee of KeeWee's Corner with a recipe for Witch's Weakness. I don't know any witch who could resist!
Shawn Lea of Everything and Nothing presents a bunch of stuff for your Halloween party! This is great fun. Serve up some Cheesy Goblin Head, Dracula's Eyes (ewwwww!), and try one of these Boo Brew ideas. For atmosphere, Make spooky glowing water. After the pumpkin carving, be sure to make some Toasted Pumpkin Seeds. Sounds like a great party!
