Happy Halloween

Alice's Mad Hatter
We were invited to a neighborhood party for Halloween-not quite our neighborhood but darn close.  Everyone gathers together and eats first (soup, salad, and bread with a few delicious Halloween desserts tossed in).  I tried to two soups and they were both good and Groovy Girl polished off most of a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  It was fun to do something different in such a nice event.

Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.

Groovy Girl decided she wanted to make cupcakes to bring to the party.  We searched online last night and found a perfect recipe and by that I mean a recipe she swooned over.  We made the cake and frosting from Erica's Sweet Tooth.  Instead of the peanut butter cup on top she added one candy corn.  She's become quite an expert froster and the tiny cakes were a hit.

 We've sorted the candy and have two large zip locks full, one of chocolate and one "other" and this year she even made a small bag of mom and dad candy-that includes Heath and Snickers  bars.  She truly has enough candy to last her a year. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!
