I love Halloween time! The weather is starting to get a little bit colder and the leaves are starting to change. My family likes to celebrate Halloween all month long and I wanted to pass along to you some of our favorite treats! Some take a little bit of effort (but not much) and some are delicious right out of the bag. Enjoy!

Tastefully Simple Pumpkin Goodies
Pumpkin Spice is back! ‘Tis the season guys am I right? Tastefully Simple has three pumpkin products that just became available for their fall season. I love baking but it really is easier for me when I have a mix and a box to read. That way, I know it is going to come out delicous! The Pumpkin Patch Bread Mix is super easy – just add an egg and water – and you will be drooling! My house smelled amazing when I made this. For the Pumpkin Spice Cheese Ball Mix you just need to add cream cheese. It is yummy by itself, but spread on top of the bread as an icing – mmm… I am getting hungry for it just thinking about it! Lastly is what I know you have all been waiting for – the Pumpkin Spice Latte Drink Mix. I hate to admit it but I had never taken the pumpkin spice latte plunge until I got this. Wow! I am in heaven! They are so easy to make, just add hot milk – and it makes about 8 lattes – so skip the line at your local coffee shop and make yours at home!
I don’t know about you guys, but I love anything chocolate! I recently discovered Seattle Chocolates – and boy was I missing out! Their chocolate is rich and delicious and is a must have for the Halloween season! They have several cute Halloween themed items that trick or treaters would be thrilled to see handed out (or you could horde them for yourself like I am doing – shhhh…). The new Choc-O-Lantern Truffle Bar is a pumpkin spice latte in chocolate form! Yes, you read that right. All the delicious flavors of everyone’s favorite fall treat – cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and clove muddled in creamy milk chocolate. The Devil’s Delight bar is made with rich dark chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels and wrapped in a cute ghoul-themed wrap. This devilishly good bar is nutty, crunchy and downright delicious. The Dead Sea Salt bar is by far the most delicious chocolate bar I have ever tasted. My plan was to savor it and less than two minutes later, it was gone. This on-trend salty sweet chocolate bar is buttery toffee pieces and sea salt, mixed into creamy milk chocolate and spookily dressed in a skeleton wrapper. Yum! Lastly, the Trick or Truffle box is a delicious assortment of autumn flavors in this bright halloween box – new pumpkin spice in milk chocolate, our legendary dark chocolate Pike Place espresso and dark chocolate Salted Almond. There are plenty of other Halloween themed chocolates – so be sure to browse Seattle Chocolates’ selection here.
Halloween is coming up, and it’s a favorite holiday among kids—for one night, kids get to be whoever they want and stay out late. They get to go trick-or-treating, collect buckets of candy, and explore haunted houses. But Halloween is also the first in a series of fall and winter holidays dedicated to decadent treats and unhealthy foods. With diabetes and obesity on the rise among kids, why not give them a fun but also healthier option? Slammers Snacks are tasty, superfood greek yogurt snacks designed to fuel kids with organic fruits and vegetables. These snacks are a healthy alternative to sugar-laden candies and other franken-foods that pop up around this time of year. Each flavor introduces kids to fruits such as mangos, acai, yumberries, kiwis, and pomegranates, and serves as a great source of essential vitamins. Two flavors introduced this year (Pomegranite Grape Crush & Watermelon Kiwi Burst) also come packed with seven grams of protein—perfect for active kids. My girls love these and I do too. They are really good for them so that makes me happy (and they taste great – I have stolen a couple of them already). Slammers are a hit with our family – and I think they will be with yours too!
