The evening started with the neighbors gathering for a chili dinner before the trick or treaters started to ring on doorbells. Our dining room table was filled with salad, pumpkin rolls and of course, treats!
There were baskets of freshly baked breads. Pumpkin rolls and foccacia bread seemed appropriate for our Halloween chili feast. (Pumpkin roll recipe will be on the blog this weekend.)
An idea stolen from pinterest - a pumpkin dip served inside of a pumpkin.
Candy corn cookies
Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin Gingersnap Cookies
Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bars
Chocolate Dipped Apple Slices
Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn
After dinner, everyone hit the streets with bellies full of warm chili and a few sweet treats. My strategy was to fill the kids up with big bowl of chili so they wouldn't be able to eat as much candy. (I don't think it really worked out that way.)
Thanks to the world's best neighbors for a great evening of food and fun.
Happy November friends!
