Halloween Treats

What were your favorite halloween treats as a child?

I always used to go trick-or-treating around my grandma's neighborhood... there was a lady that made chocolate brownies in neat halloween shapes and frost them with orange or green frosting. She used to wrap them in colored foil... I loved that. I also liked getting mini snicker bars.

Chocolate candy bars - the bigger the better. I always felt cheated when I got an apple.

When I was growing up there was a lady across the street from us that gave away popcorn balls but she made just a few so if we wanted one we had to get to her door early :D

My mom could never get me to go trick or treating..Just to timid back then. But after I married and had kids, I loved making caramel apples for the kids in the neighborhood. Still do it now, but have added chocolate popcorn balls as well...

Yeah, I think I got a few popcorn balls..and I love caramel apples.. they aren't plain ole apples. I think I got rice crispy treats too all wrapped up.
