We have been in the swing of Fall for a little over a week, and though the weather has not completly broken, and the trees are not fully colored; Halloween is just a few blocks away.

Pumpkins are being patched and ideas for costumes are being hatched.

The holiday of cheer is a dark one, filled with spooky tales and imaginary fun.

Cupcakes, cookies, marshmellows, and candy;

here are 25 ways to trick your treats that are sure to come in handy.

the sweet right out of you.
