Angela: Ewwww I would not eat them in a box, I would not eat them with a fox.. But they look so real.

to gross them out. They are the perfect balance of yummy and gross!

Candy Covered Marshmallow Pumpkins by The Happier Homemaker
Angela: This is the difference between Amber and I, this is my Halloween speed.
I think this is something I would eat!
Amber: These are too cute. Definitely something the kiddos could help you with
and you could serve at a kid friendly Halloween party!
Mini Mummy Cakes by A Typical English Home
Angela: I would totally make these for my granddaughter’s preschool! How cute are they?
Amber: She said she made these in like 10 minutes, I think? Color me impressed!
These look amazing and I would totally serve these.
Dracula’s Dentures by The Girl Who Ate Everything
Angela: These are HILARIOUS! I love these cookies with a bite!Amber: I have seen a couple of variations this year with apples and
marshmallows but nothing can beat this one in my opinion!
Not-So-Spooky Oreo Bats by Our Best Bites
Angela: Honestly, you had me at chocolate covered Oreo, but the fact
they have eyes and wings are even better.
Amber: I can hear my kids freaking out about this one as we speak. I am pretty sure
my son might try to eat the wings though. A very cute idea and perfectly executed!
Sweet Intestines with Bloody Glass by The Little Ferraro Kitchen
Angela: I think the glass is really creative and still just gross enough.
Amber: Using puff pastry as intestines has to be one of the most creative ideas I have seen!
I just adore the touch of glass and oozing blood. Yum!

a lot to catch my attention, I like this because it is unusual and is about as
inexpensive as you can get and not be free. Yay! Amber!

I hate spiders and while I want to make this. I think I will have my husband do it…
and stay far, far away.
