Halloween recipes have always caught my attention. They are so cute, festive and bring out those childhood feelings of excitement. I am all about easy Halloween treats and have shared quite a few DIY Halloween treats on my blog. This one came about when I found a bag of bulk store candy in my cupboard.

You know what the problem with the Bulk store is??? They have so many awesome things and when you scoop them into those plastic bags, you just don't know how much you are putting in there. I always try to get just enough for what ever recipe I'm planning on making, but it never works. I'm always left with bags of candies, sprinkles, nuts and chocolate melts. That's exactly what I found in my cupboard the other day. I huge Bulk Barn bag, full of chocolates and Halloween candies. So, I decided to use them all (well most of them) and make some Halloween Bark.

Chocolate barks are so easy and you can make any imaginable flavour combination. In my version today, milk chocolate is drizzled with while and coloured chocolates, then topped with Reese's Pieces, Candy Corn (I had a few so I used them), candy eye balls and Gummy Worms. Frightfully delicious, the kids are just devouring this. This would be a great special treat to give to the little trick or treat-ers in your family, or even as a school Halloween party treat!

Halloween Bark

1 1/2 C milk chocolate melts
1/2 C each white, orange and green chocolate melts
candy corn (optional)
Reese's Pieces
gummy worms
candy eye balls (optional)

Place chocolate melts in separate bowls. Heat each bowl,  in microwave, for 90 seconds; stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slowly pour melted milk chocolate onto parchment paper, trying to spread it out, evenly. Put remaining 3 melted chocolates into separate zip top bags. Cut a small hole in one end of each zip top bag, and drizzle white, green and orange chocolate over the milk chocolate. Sprinkle with candies and gently press into chocolate. Place in freezer to set, about 30-45 minutes. To break, grab both ends of the parchment paper, and drop it onto your kitchen counter. The chocolate should break into pieces.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these s loppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles. Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it wa
