Just because you are all grown up does not mean that you can't enjoy Halloween, grown up style. While the kids are out trick-or-treating why not enjoy some Halloween treats made with adults in mind. Here are some of my picks:
The Big Caramel Apple from Williams Sonoma. Way too rich and luxuriously appointed for kids to enjoy. This sinfully delicious oversize apple is coated in soft caramel, then drizzled with Guittard dark chocolate and sprinkled with lightly salted roasted almonds. Keep this one all to yourself. Available for $19.95, here.
Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale. A perfect beer for Fall! This is an amber style ale brewed with fresh roasted pumpkins and malted barley with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg mixed in. Six for $7.99, Available here.
Two more, so
The Favorite® Royal Riviera® Pears. Most kids aren't going to get very excited about snacking on these, but we adults know how delicious a perfectly ripened pear can be. These particular pears from Harry and David have been a favorite gift for over 70 years. They are rare winter pears that were first grown in France in the 1840s and are now grown in Southern Oregon. Buy a dozen here for $27.95.
Hot Apple Pie. This is not the kind of pie your grandmother makes, this one is in liquid form and is my very favorite cold weather cocktail. Start with Hot Apple Cider, add a little Tuaca (a vanilla liquor), swirl with a Cinnamon Stick and top it off with Whip Cream. The best of the best adult Halloween treats! Start off with this Hot Spiced Cider recipe from All Recipes.
