Vampire's Blood for Halloween

I am not a Halloween person but this year I have done a few crafts for this holiday and decided that I wanted to make a drink.  I first want to make something with candy corn as that is my favorite Halloween candy but I couldn't figure out how to make the colours to stay layered.

M&M Candy Corn Cookie Bars to #fillthecookiejar

I can't believe that it has been a month ago since I was writing up my post for Fill the Cookie Jar. These months are passing by so quickly.  October is one of my favorite months.. I love all the autumn colours and the crispness in the air. It is also the month of Halloween.  I am not so much  a Halloween person but I love all the Halloween candy that have been floating around.  My favorite being Candy Corn.

Foodie Friends Friday ~ Halloween Party #foodiefriendsfriday

Where did this month of October go?  In one week it will be over and I don't think I say any of it... How about you?  So, are you ready for Halloween... not me, but then I really don't have to do anything for it ~ I usually eat all the treats I buy to hand out so I am thinking I am not going to hand out anything this year.. No treats, no extra weight for me.. Win, Win.

Cobweb Cookies (aka Lace Cookies) #fillthecookiejar




This month I waiting until the very last day to make my cookies... I am not sure what my problem is ~ either I need more hours in the day or I just need to get more organized.  I am thinking that it is the organization part that I need to work on.  But I did get my cookies made and they turned out even though they are quite large~ but cobwebs are large aren't they.

Almond Bark Halloween Candy

I am not a Halloween person, but I love the candy and I do like watching the young children dressed up in their costume excited to get candy.
One of my favorite Halloween candies is candy corn... and I eat them until I am just about sick.  I found this recipe on the last Foodie Friends Friday recipe... It has everything that I like in candy ~ chocolate, candy corn and m&m's.  The recipe is from one of my favorite blogger's Cindy from Hun.. What's for Dinner.


Almond Bark Halloween Candy
adapted from Halloween Candy Bark

6 square Vanilla flavored Almond Bark
6 square Chocolate flavored Almond Bark
approx 1 - 1 1/2 cup of m&m's and candy corn (  I used candy corn flavored m&m's, fall m&m's and harvest mix candy corn)

Melt chocolate in separate bowls.  I melted mine in the microwave, check about every 30 seconds.  The vanilla flavored almond bark took about 2 minutes to melt and the chocolate almond bark took about 3 minutes to melt.
Place parchment paper on cookie sheet, pour almond bark on cookie sheet and using a knife swirl the two almond bark together.  I put my almond bark beside each other but you can also slowly pour the chocolate flavored almond bark on the parchment paper and then slowly pour the vanilla flavored almond bark.  Again using knife swirl together.
Pour candies over the chocolate and press softly into chocolate. Put into refrigerator to harden.  Take out in about 45 minutes.  To break candy, grab both ends of the parchment paper and drop onto countertop, or you can break it with your hands.
