my husband makes me wait until october 1st to decorate for halloween.
Seriously?? Seriously. I’m thinking about making one of those paper chains next year–orange and black? To count down the days until it is socially acceptable to hang skeleton lights, place skulls on the bookshelves, and binge watch classic scary movies where the zombies are slow and the babysitter dies.
One of my favorite things about Halloween is handing out candy. Like, I’m that crazy lady with no kids that would buy king-size candy bars or bottles of root beer just so I can be the BEST friggin halloween candy giver there is. That house (read: apartment) that kids ask their moms to drive them to, just because they know that THAT lady will have the best candy.
But do we get any trick-or-treaters? . . . Nope. Not one. No little jedi knights. Not one of the five billion little elsas I’m sure are running around. Not one kick-butt wonder woman beating up spooky ghosts and saving the other costumed kids one fun size kit kat at a time. COME TAKE MY CANDY!!! Please, oh please, for the love of saint pete, come knock on my door and shout trick-or-treat and take my candy.

Grown-Up Graveyard Chocolate Mousse
So many cute halloween dessert ideas . . . so little time! But let’s face it. Chocolate halloween dessert is always the best choice. This recipe is a more grown-up version of the kids’ halloween dirt dessert. Instead of chocolate pudding, we have chocolate mousse. Chocolate. Mousse. The reasons you should make this (as if you need any) include the fact that it is:
- quick and easy
- sinfully rich
- lusciously soft
- covered in crunchy cookie crumbles
- topped with a milano headstone
- spookingly fantastic for halloween dessert
- can be made ahead of time
- super eeeeeeeasy
And who doesn’t love all that?!
~Happy Halloween~ 🙂
