Still on the hunt for some great treats for your Halloween gatherings this year? Have we got the round-up for you! Here are some of the most creative recipes we’ve come across on the web this Halloween season…

If you’re sick of pumpkin flavoring but still want to stick to the symbol of the season, 365(ish) Days of Pinterest has a great recipe for Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats that are merely that favorite childhood treat of yours shaped into Pinterest-worthy mini pumpkins! With a little bit of food coloring and some green gel piping, these are sure to be a hit with all ages.

If you’re up for some carving–and we don’t mean pumpkin–create these Mini Caramel Apples from At Home In Love. A simple metal coffee scoop helps to create small round balls of apple, just perfect for dipping in caramel and eating in one bite!

Go Nuts This Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner (one week from today!), which means that it’s time to get candy on our minds. Whether you’re going door to door with a young one, attending a Halloween party, or even trick-or-treating yourself (#foreveryoung), you must know that candy is the most important food group on the last day of October.

It’s easy to find candy anywhere this time of year– heck, we’ve been seeing it in grocery stores since summer! But store-bought isn’t the only way to stock the house for this spooky holiday. Why not make some treats of your own?

We spotted this homemade version of a popular confectionery in Dede Wilson’s A Baker’s Field Guide to Holiday Candy & Confections. Peanut butter and chocolate is a match made in heaven, and making your own peanut butter cups is a lot simpler than you would think– just four easy-to-find ingredients go into these! Will...

Hot Dog Bar

With the World Series upon us, it’s time for those of us in Boston to snuggle up on our couches and pick a team to root for. As bitter sad as we are that the Red Sox aren’t in it to win it this year, we can still have fun rooting for the San Francisco Giants or the Kansas City Royals, and here at HCP, we love to root for our teams with food!

When it comes to baseball, who doesn’t love a classic hot dog? We found these awesome regional hot dog recipes from Delish. If you’re rooting for Kansas City, dive into a Grilled Reuben Dog– the best-selling hot dog always found at Royals games. Topped with cheese, caraway, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing, you won’t know the difference between your couch and Kauffman Stadium!

If you’re a San Fran fan, go for a BLT Hot Dog with Caraway Remoulade. Bacon, on...

Best-Ever Pumpkin Recipes

It’s hard to avoid (resist?) all of the pumpkin recipes that crop up around this time of year. Because it may seem completely overwhelming to navigate the overflowing list of Pinterest pumpkin pins (where do you even start?!), we’ve compiled this roundup of our favorite pumpkins treats from across the web to help guide you in some unique and some familiar directions…!

Let’s start with breakfast. Bet you didn’t picture pumpkin for breakfast, did ya? Well, Pumpkin Waffles (spotted in Mom’s Big Book of Baking) are nothing to scoff at. Moist pumpkin waffles drizzled with a touch of another favorite fall flavor, maple syrup, create a breakfast that’s sure to wow everyone in the house. But we also found these Baked Pumpkin Nutella French Toast over at Handle the Heat. Oh. My. Could there have been more things we love mixed into that recipe? Nutella and pumpkin sounds like a match made in...
