It’s the season for Halloween howls and pump grins.

 

Ghosts, goblins & witches oh my! Halloween is just around the corner! Surprise your Sweetie with ghoulish treats. Chocolate witches, mummies, pumpkins, spiders, skulls, eyeballs or black cats.

 

With Halloween only days away here are some scary yet yummy ideas to do with your Chocolate Date. Come all dressed up and have fun being someone else. If you don’t have a costume, this is a good time to check out your local second hand and vintage shops. With so much sugar and sweets on this Chocolate Halloween Date, both of you will be buzzing with love (evil grin). 

 

1. Ghoulish Games – Feel like a kid again!

Create clues and riddles your sweetie must solve to find hidden treats and treasures in or outside your home. If you like, create a treasure map your sweetie must follow to find the “X” that marks the spot. Use treasures like assorted chocolates, love coupons, Halloween novelty items and gift certificates. Click here to read the article for more info.

 

Or simply hide treats in your sweetie’s bag/purse, coat pockets, drawers, car seat, by their books, glove compartment or a special place for them to find it at their own leisure. Be sure to attach a little note so your sweetie knows it’s from you.

Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Halloween Pancakes | www.familyfreshcooking.com

Who says you can’t have chocolate in the morning? In fact, chocolate makes a perfect start to the day as it feeds the brain with the right kind of nutrients that give us those yummy ‘feel good’ feelings.

 

Pancakes make a simple and fun breakfast. You can make different shapes and in different color with the use of food coloring or even cocoa powder. Prepare basic pancake/waffle mix and use the following variations:

 

Pumpkins – orange colour (red and yellow food colouring) and use chocolate sauce or chocolate chips for the face

Ghosts can be topped with white chocolate shavings

Bats, witches hat, or cats – add a few teaspoons of cocoa powder. Serve with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

You can even mix in chocolate chips, crushed chocolate bars or candy or some melted dark or milk chocolate to the batter mix before cooking.

Have fun this Halloween in creating a grueling and bewitching experience for the both of you. This is a fun time of the year – costumes, makeup, pumpkins, parties, dances, candy and of course chocolate!

 

Have a fang-tastic time
