12+ Not-So-Scary Halloween Recipes

Double, double, toil, and trouble! Halloween is finally here.

I’ve realized lately that I am very futuristic. You see, back in August, I started watching my favorite Halloween movies — Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice, of course. And now that it’s the end of October, I’m already thinking Christmas! HA!

I know, I know, I gotta reign it in. Tis the spooky season for a few more days, and while I CANNOT handle anything too spooky — scaredy cat over here — I love a good Halloween-themed treat.

    I love the Sally cookies! I am not the best at decorating but I could definitely swirl different colors of dough together and add the details for that one!
