Halloween for us is mostly candy!! Because there is so much sugar involved we have always made my grandma's spicy vegetable soup on Halloween night. It is fairly healthy and it can stay warm on the stove the whole night so no matter how late someone gets in from either trick or treating or partying the soup is ready. We usually do most of our pumpkin cooking on Thanksgiving. Like QSis I make Paula Dean's gooey pumpkin cakes for Thanksgiving.

Maybe try this:

I haven't made it myself, but 477 people gave it a 5 star rating so it's probably pretty good!

1 9inch deep dish pie shell, baked
Butterscotch Sauce
Whipped Cream
Caramelized Almonds

My son's birthday is Halloween, so on his first birthday, I made him a cake that looked like a Jack O Lantern Pumpkin.

Here's a recipe and photo from the website of the magazine I originally got the idea from:

Here's one my kids have made in school at Halloween parties:

Halloween Spider Cookies

Oreo cookies**
frosting mix
red licorice ropes
mini M&Ms or chocolate chips

Split the cookies and put three lengths of red rope licorice across the frosting, letting about 2 inches hang out both sides for legs. Add a little canned frosting and put the cookies back together. Put two small dollops of frosting on edge of cookie and add two M&Ms or chips for eyes.

**In case you aren't familiar with Oreo cookies, here's what they look like:

Halloween was always a big thing in Scotland when I was young. We used to dress up and go 'guising' (from disguised) and call round at the neighbours, where we would get a small sweetie or an apple, orange or some nuts. We HAD to sing or dance or recite a poem - no prize if you didn't perform! In recent years, we seem to have re-imported OUR traditions had morphed in the US to 'Trick or Treating'

We used to have wonderful Halloween parties with lots of games - 'dooking for aiples' (ducking for apples) a large zinc bath would be filled with water and small apples floated on the top - children had to try to bite the apple to 'catch' it, without using your hands... Quite a skill! Then there were strings suspended from a horizontal pole and at the end would be tied a toffee apple. Again the aim of the game was to capture the apple by biting at it - the children had their hands tied behind their backs.
