I decided to make Caramel Corn Treat Bags to take to work to share with everyone. The caramel corn was very easy to make and it really tasted good. I used the dark Karo syrup to give it a darker flavor and added a wee bit more salt. I set out bowls of the following add-ins for the corn: dry roasted peanuts, plain M&M candies, candy corn, gummy worms and gummy body parts and some little hard candy bones and skulls

I put everything out pretty early.. like 8am and people got into the treats right away. I was surprised. Usually they wait until a bit later to get the sugar rush going so they must have really liked it.
I also made another Karo recipe, not from Allrecipes to take to work because it was so weird I HAD to make it Richys Exceptional Cheeto Dessert Yup.. candied Cheetos!
I got almost all the decorations at the Dollar Tree Store The bowls were each a dollar, bags of body parts a dollar, big bag of spider web and little black spiders were a dollar... for a few bucks it came out really nice. Don't have to spend a lot of money... but make sure you get there early. The closer you get to the holiday, the less neat stuff they have,
So here are a few other pictures of the Halloween fun today
