I DON’T KNOW about you guys but back in the salad days of my youth halloween was, like, the coolest thing ever.
I mean it just felt so much more exciting, you know?? And my family and I would always have these schnazzy coordinating costumes —
like one year we were cowboys and indians haha get it because we’re indian??
one year we were bees and beekeepers wow
and one year I was a bathtub?? can’t really remember how that tied into the rest of the family oh well
— but anyways halloween was like the most magical night and we would have a rockin’ party in the lobby with pizza and drinks but by that point the party had only JUST begun because after that we went around the building and collected like 231 pounds of candy and went back to the apartment and traded with each other and watched “it’s the great pumpkin charlie brown” and went to sleep full of happiness and joy !!!
Over my many years of celebrating this holiday I have come to the sad and depressing conclusion that maybe halloween isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be. I mean the rockin’ halloween party is more like having to make small talk with a few of my creepy neighbors while a disturbing plug-in zombie is in the corner making freaky sounds. The trick-or-treating is basically just stopping at like 12 doors (many of which are half-eaten bowls of candy set outside the door). The whole candy trading idea usually fails miserably because my siblings get into a hissy fit over the sour punch straws or something. AND I FORGOT TO TAPE IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN THIS YEAR
so basically my halloween was pretty LAME this year but hopefully yours wasn’t!! and anyways I think we can all agree that christmas is 72x cooler than halloween.
anyways….. as it is almost a full week after halloween I am sure that you’re all drowning in halloween candy, yes??
WELL HAVE I GOT A SOLUTION FOR YOU
peanut butter blossoms!!
except in a muffin tin??
and with halloween candy instead of regular hershey kisses??!?!
(ok I guess these aren’t really pb blossoms)
I’m SURE you’re all wondering where I got this ingenious idea from… and I can’t really take all the credit because, truth be told, these have been haunting me every since I saw them on the pioneer woman— except she used premade dough (which both shocked and appalled me) so I had to adapt it a little bit because I refuse to stoop to that level.
