I feel like October is the beginning of “human hibernation season” meaning time to start staying indoors and eating a lot… Although many people dread this time of year because of those things I try to enjoy it while it is here and cozy up with the family. Today I thought I would share my favorite Halloween movies and treats for once the kids are in bed, after all, tis the season!
Halloween is my all time favorite scary movie and there is no treat that represents Fall and Halloween more than a caramel / candy apple. You can make this dip, or just get the container of caramel dip in the produce section at the grocery store. Or you can be a real OG and make the real deal caramel apples. either way it is a very seldom had treat and totally necessary for fall.
If you have never seen the movie Cabin in the Woods then you are missing out! This is not your typical slasher movie and has some major twists. Definitely one I can watch over and over again – the merman makes the entire movie worth it! I am also a big fan of salty and sweet so homemade popcorn on the stove with some M&Ms mixed in is the perfect treat to share.
I have never met someone who does not like Hocus Pocus, and if you are the first then BYE! Bette Midler is queen and no matter how many times I see this it never gets old. Cinema gold people! And I know that we already talked about green apples, but this green apple licorice is bomb! it can be somewhat hard to find, but I am usually able to track some down at Sprouts. If you have never had it before and try it let me know what you think
I had never seen Trick R’ Treat until a few Halloweens ago and it is now one of my favorites. I don’t think it is very popular so some of you may have no idea what it is, but if you love Halloween and scary movies it is worth the $3 to rent. Also, I know all the other treats have been sweets, but I am a big meat and cheese girl so I had to include this. I usually will choose savory over sweet so this would be my first choice for any movie night.
What are some of your season food and movie favorites?
