  1. I just love getting my kids and my friends kids together to make homemade candy apples. It’s so fun seeing their artistic side with the variations of toppings they choose to put on their carmel apples.

  2. The book looks great!!! I have a herd of kids (and adults like me) who would just love it!!!

  3. My favorite Halloween treat is the little Baby Ruth candy bars. They are so good! They have 2 of my favorite things – Chocolate and nuts. I rationalize they are good for me because nuts provide protien and chocolate boost endorphins!!!!

  4. I love Butterfinger. Unfortunately, it’s not available in Germany, but I recently discovered KitKat with peanut flavor — YUMMY! So I declare them my favorite Halloween treat. 🙂

    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome book.

  5. Have enjoyed Matthew Mead’s work for years. Look forward to seeing his latest creations.

    Caramel apples are definitely my favorite Halloween treat.

  6. Halloween itself is my “treat” (along with anything with Hershey’s chocolate!). I craft Halloween things all year long and get absolutely giddy when I see retailers putting out the wonderful Halloween items each year!!

  7. I love Rockets, my dad & I used to buy a bag just to eat by ourselves, but we’d pretend that we were going to give them out to the kids.

  8. Haystacks!!!!! Yummmmm!!!!!! They are chow mein noodles mixed in melted butterscotch or chocolate morsels. They are delicious and addictive!!!! 🙂

  9. Candy corn they have flavors now…it is so exciting..I think my favorite is the carmel candy corn….

  10. Hot apple cider,homemade glazed doughnuts, and apples covered with warm gooey caramel my favorites!

  11. My favorite halloween treat is to mix salted peanuts with candy corn. You get a wonderful salty/sweet treat and I can’t stop eating it!!

  12. My Favorite Halloween Treat? Wow hard to decide… I love homemade themed treats. Caramel Apples are definitely a fall craving of mine. The candy I always sneak from my kids trick-or-treat bag is a Twix. And I am so excited for this book! Thanks for sharing & for the giveaway!

  13. I love anything pumpkin flavored this time of year. Plus cookies and cupcakes decorated for Halloween are irrestible!! Jones Soda used to put out halloween flavors in mini-cans. My kids and I LOVED those. Have not seen them in recent years.

  14. Aside from sneaking some of the fun size candy bars out of my kids bags, just to be sure the candy is safe of course… I love Apple Fritters, Cider, pumpkin donuts… Ok, I love making fun Halloween foods for my kids even tho they are now teens. I’ve been doing it since they were little. A pumpkin shaped pizza, spider shaped cookies.. Etc. I make them all of October! I <3 Halloween!

  15. Spiced apple cider and all of the cute, smaller candy bars. They’re so small you don’t feel like you’re eating a lot…..

  16. I absolutely love Brach’s candy corn, candy pumpkins,especially if they are chocolate flavered. If they come out in August, I’m ready for October.

  17. My all time favorite treat is Reese Peanut Butter Cups. But I also make a great and easy mix with salted peanuts and candy corn together, and it’s called Salted Nut Roll Mix. Easy and everyone loves it!

  18. I can never get enough candy corn — year ’round! I think Brach’s should make them in different color combinations so that they become an “acceptable” holiday snack for Christmas and Easter as well. 🙂

  19. I really love the pumpkin reeses and twix and chocolate carmel apples or basically anything with chocolate!

  20. Halloween musts: candy corn, orange M&M’s and deviled apples (yummy apples covered with tamarind and hot pepper paste, a delicious mexican recipe). And of course, chocolate cupcakes decorated as spiders to decorate the dinner table and treat the kids!

  21. I have to say Candy Corn has to be my favorite Halloween Treat. As soon as I see them in the stores I get so excited!

  22. My favorite Halloween treat, the possibilities are endless but the carmel apples with chocolate coating on the outside are my biggest sin and I steal all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups out of my kids bags when they come back from trick-or-treating 🙂

  23. Candy corn is one of my all time favorite candy’s- since it’s not something you can find all year usually, it makes it extra special when it’s this time of year and I can have some!( I usually stock up on a few extra bags and keep them in my freezer – but even those don’t make it much past Novemeber! lol)

  24. I absolutely love carmel popcorn balls. I have an elderly neighor that makes them every year for Halloween. We all love to go to her house to get them.

  25. reese’s peanut butter cups. kids know how much I love them so as we are going through their candy they always fork em over!

  26. Monster Candy Apples (covered in everything-caramel, chocolate, white chocolate, nuts, coconut, M&Ms, and chocolate chips)…And Peanut Butter cups. Great–now the thought is in my head…

  27. My favorite Halloween treats are anything with caramel and chocolate or simply sliced apples with caramel dip. As soon as the weather begins to cool each year and autumn sets in, I start craving these treats 🙂

  28. I’m with you, I absolutely love Twix! The combination of creamy caramel, crispy cookie, enrobed with chocolate absolutely cannot be beat. I sneak them from my kids, who have become wise to my ways now hide away the candy in their rooms.

  29. I love those sickeningly sweet mallocreme pumpkins that go on sale at Halloween time. Love them.

  30. The caramel popcorn balls my mom makes for me every Halloween. Halloween is also my birthday, so it makes the treat extra special!

  31. I like the Indian Corn better than just plain candy corn (will still eat either). Mix that with the fall colored M&Ms (any variety) and put in Popcorn…..Hello fantastic movie night treat! Loaded Popcorn & a scary movie mean Halloween is near.

  32. It’s all about peanut butter for me! Love the old-timey Mary Jane’s or Bit O Honey’s!!

  33. I love anything chocolate (Oh Henry, Smarties, Aero, etc.) and homemade Caramel-Skor Bit apples!

    Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas and this fabulous giveaway!

  34. I loooove candy apples. Love probably isn’t a strong enough word for the obsession I have for them. *drool drool drool* I may just have to whip up a batch later on. 😉

  35. I can’t leave the candy corn alone. Seems as soon as October hits it’s a must have for the look as much as the taste. ????

  36. I love anything chocolate, but Kit Kats are one my favorite. I also like the peanut butter balls that are made up to look like eyeballs – gross, but yummy!

  37. I always loot my children’s candy bags for anything retro from the 70’s-80’s. It’s very rare to find, so it’s kinda like a game for me…a childhood scavenger hunt! I look for things like: pixie stiks, bit-o-honeys, candy cigarettes, wax lips, ring pops, etc. I’ll do anything to feel like a kid again! 🙂

  38. Last year I paid a loonie to my kids for each bag of Hawkins cheezies they’d sell me…one of my low points, I know. But Hawkins cheezies are my faves. Crunchy and salty in one bite. Mmm.

  39. Well I just love candy and Halloween! So I am in heaven this time of year!
    But the one candy I would take from the kids loot (luckily they didn’t like it) was the delicious Almond Joy!

  40. Candy corn all the way! That and my grandma’s Rice Krispie treats mixed with a colorful Halloween cereal to make it festive.

  41. OH I always start this season with candy corn. By the time Halloween is over, I never want to see it again…til next year. haha

  42. Planning parties for teenagers and kindergartners…..I love the party ideas you put out there!

  43. my favorite thing this time of year is decorating – both with stuff i make or purchase, but always adding in things my girls make. going to the pumpkin patch and cutting our very own pumpkins from the vine is the best! and then there’s the candy… OH the candy! i’m a reese’s mom! yummy!

  44. Candy corn is my favorite as it brings back childhood memories of my mammaw and Pappaw. They were wonderful grandparents.

  45. I love take – and eat – mini cakes shaped like pumpkins. chocolate, of course1

  46. Tough decision – favorite Halloween treat. I think October signals the beginning of Fall/Halloween so I think my favorite treat for that time of year is a caramel apple or caramel popcorn balls. YUM!

  47. The candy corn and peanut mix! And caramel apples, caramel popcorn, all things apple, all things pumpkin …. oh, how I love Fall!

  48. I love chocolate covered caramel apples! I make a spider web design on them to give them a little more ka-pow;-) This Halloween I have been making rice crispy treats using an owl cookie cutter. I love Halloween!

  49. I have two boys (5 and 2 years old) they loved the monster cake…. love it!!… We r planning to have a halloween party with all the kids around our house, this would be perfect.

  50. I loved the mini candy bars! Mainly because there was a little less worry about their safety.

  51. The gumdrop kitties and orange men are soo cute! I need this book to find out how to make those! My kid would be so tickled to pick out ideas for his Halloween party!

  52. Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate !
    This book looks wonderful, I’d love to have it.
    Thanks for this giveaway, I hope it is worldwide…

  53. Gotta say Reese’s Pieces… but I can’t lie, I pretty much like anything that has chocolate or carmel! Thanks!

  54. My favorite Halloween “treat” is spiced apple cider. It’s the perfect addition to Halloween festivities.

  55. I love Reece’s peanut butter cups!!! But I try to give out healthy treats like little bags of pretzels…that way if there are any leftovers I don’t feel guilty eating them! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  56. I love the leftover chocolate bars that nobody takes because we don’t have any trick-or-treaters coming to our neighborhood where the houses are too far apart to be fruitful for them! 🙂
