October 14th: Enjoy a Fall dessert in honor of National Dessert Day

My jeans are yelling, “You’ve been eating Fall desserts every single day.”

But, the voices in my head are yelling something different.

Perhaps, just one little cookie….

Ms. Fields Yummy Mummy Cookie Cake

Or, just a small bite…

Or, one tiny slice of cake.

And, if one little slice, leads to the whole cake, that’s okay. It’s a special time of year.

October 13th: Snuggle up with a chocolate mystery, eat 13 chocolatesĀ 

It’s the perfect time of year to snuggle up in a blanket with a good mystery…and eat chocolates. My personal recommendation, ahem, Thirteen Chocolates.

The mystery is set up like a whodunit, with 13 suspects. This is where the chocolates come in. Every chapter a suspect is eliminated, and so is a chocolate. (Your cue to eat a chocolate!)

So grab some chocolates, grab a book, and eat your way through the mystery.

For the occasion, starting Oct. 13th, Thirteen ChocolatesĀ will be on sale for only 99 cents.

October 10th: Chocolate Mmmummies

These little guys are warm, toasty, and oozing with chocolate.

Ingredients:

Miniature Hershey Bars

Refrigerator Croissant Rolls

Mini M&M’s

Directions:

1. Stretch a croissant around a candy bar. Be sure to cover the bar well so the chocolate doesn’t escape. Just leave a small opening for the eyes.

2. Add the M&M eyes.

3. Bake according to package directions.

Now that’s a Yummy Mummy!

Halloween is all about the creep-factor. And I can’t think of anything creepier than eating a frog.

October 6th: Watch (or read), Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and eat Chocolate Frogs

If you can’t find them in the store, you can purchase frogs here.

Or, you can make your own and get a lot more toads for your green. I like theseĀ moldsĀ because they’re big enough to add a filling or surprise center. Plus, they look more real, and less cutesy.

Want to fancy them up? Print out and create these nifty chocolate frog boxes.
