Growing up doesn't mean losing your sweet tooth! Halloween is all about indulgence, so the more sweets there are, the better. Treat your guests an assortment of home-baked cookies, bite-sized bakery pastries, caramel apples and cupcakes with creepy decorations -- anything you can eat with your hands.
Really, when it comes to treats, desserts and fun holidays like Halloween, there's no reason we can't still act like kids!
