Happy, happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Maybe getting ready for a Halloween party or finishing your kid’s costume?

I’m going to be honest, Halloween isn’t my holiday. I’ve never understood the fascination with creepy and scary things. I’m a total wimp and honestly cannot wait for it to be over. Which means our neighbors across the street will finally take down their bloody zombie ghost from the front door. Even though it’s been there a couple of weeks now, I am still taking a double take every time I look out our window. Enough already! November 1st can’t come soon enough.

If you ask me, you can never have enough candy corn around the house. I know some people aren’t a huge fan, but when you combine candy corn with peanuts and chocolate, you have yourself a treat that’s hard to beat.

My affection with everything peanut butter and chocolate is well documented on this blog. I even have a super simple recipe for homemade peanut butter cups (that require only 2 ingredients) already on the blog. When I’m in a cinch, I totally whip up a batch of those and have my way with them. But today’s version is slightly different. I jazzed it up a bit and made some delicious additions.

I actually got the idea while eating a mix of candy corn, roasted peanuts, and chocolate chips the other day. Best fall snack… hands down! So I thought that the only thing better would be a handheld sweet. And I was totally right. All of my cravings in one little cup.

Addictive little things, these are. [Read more…]
