Halloween Fun Treats!

Burnt Macaroni - Halloween, Au Gratin, Bruscetta 035aMy family loves, loves Halloween! We love all that comes with this holiday including the decorating, the scaring, the pumpkin picking and the Halloween treats! My kids have wanted to dive into our bags of candy for weeks now. But we are standing firm and waiting for Friday’s big day!

We had so much fun making these marshmallow Halloween characters.  And it’s so easy!  Here’s what we came up with!
