Halloween "Boo"fay

Here was my spread for the Book Club I hosted this month! I love fall food, and treats! The punch was a 2-liter of Sprite, a pint of raspberry sherbet, and half a bag of frozen raspberries--standard, but delicious!

I served delicious pumpkin bars. There are many good recipes for pumpkin bars, I'm sure you have your favorite. I used the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook recipe. And of course, the best thing about it is the cream cheese frosting! Yum....

This great pumpkin dip is from Taste of Home a few years back. In a large mixing bowl beat one 8-oz package of cream cheese with 2 cups powdered Sugar. Add one 15oz can of pureed pumpkin, 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and 1 tsp vanilla. It is delicious with apple and pear slices.

This witches cauldron in the fire pit is my favorite aesthetically speaking. Pretzel rods and three colors of delicious sweet peppers make up the fire. The dip is a sour cream onion dip. I bought mine pre-made (there's only so many hours in the day). I looked for a little cauldron bowl for the dip to go in, but alas, I had to settle for a dark bowl, I still think the effect is really nice.

Happy Halloween Treating!

Looks fun! I am sure it was a big hit! I wish I lived closer so I could come to your book club!

I want to come! It looks fun. How did you keep the boys, big and small away from the treats!
Hope it was a fun evening.

Oh, I love it! So fun to have an excuse to actually do something like this--you always see them in magazines and imagine that someday you will!
