Halloween is a marvelous holiday for children, but it loses a bit of its appeal once you become an adult (especially one who lives in a place where little witches and wizards cannot come knocking on the door). Nowadays, I spend the evening watching horror movies and eating too much candy. This has its own appeal, of course, but I am not sure it has quite the same Halloween spirit as in years past.
Though I rarely create holiday-themed recipes, I have accumulated my own Hallows' Eve collection over the years. Inspired in part by Harry Potter and a love for the cute and creepy, these recipes would make a fun addition for any last minute weekend preparations.
