Are you ready for the slew of children making their way to your front door tonight? Depending on your neighborhood, you may soon find yourself running to the front door every few minutes, handing out bite-sized treats to pirates, ghosts and princesses.
Your attention may more be largely focused on the delectable treats that you keep on giving away, however. Just because you're too old for trick-or-treating doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself, right? Go ahead and treat yourself to something special! Heck, it doesn't even have to be Halloween for you to indulge that sweet tooth, so go ahead and scratch that candy itch that's been building. Here are a few ideas to help get you into a sweeter frame of mind.
1. Chocolate covered strawberries. It's understandable if you consider yourself a little too old for the standard Halloween fare. If this is the case, chocolate strawberries may be right up your alley. You can still enjoy all the sweetness that comes with chocolate, but at least you can tell yourself that you're also eating fruit, if you need to make a quick excuse. They come in a wide variety of flavors, so you'll have no problem finding one that you enjoy, whether you prefer white or dark chocolate, chopped almonds or chocolate chips. Hop on the couch with your favorite fright-filled flick and enjoy yourself!
2. Caramel apples. If you're interested in a more traditional fall snack, caramel apples are definitely what you're looking for. These tart apples are drenched in irresistible golden caramel and then rolled in any number of crushed treats, such as candy bars or peanut fragments. Chances are, you'll only need to eat one of these apples to feel satisfied, but it's a great way to bring yourself back to the days of county fairs and their many vendors of delicious, sugary delights.
3. Brownie pops. If you'd like something a bit different, have you considered picking up some brownie pops? They're definitely a unique dessert, but you'll quickly fall in love with the perfect marriage of rich brownies and a hard sugary shell. Invite your best friend or sweetheart over, cozy up on the couch and watch your favorite movie with a few of these, and you'll soon be a fan for life.
