So Sweet...Its Spooky

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.

It is the time of ghost and candy floating through shelves, witches and littles strangers ringing bells.

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.
