Popcorn balls, we used to make them as kids. Or decorated Halloween cookies or cupcakes. Apples with caramel (or carmal) coating. Would you like to make those or other treats?

I think cupcakes are fun to make but I almost never make them. Once in a great while, I still make a Popcorn Cake. People get so excited about them. It is sort of like caramel corn but it is pressed into a round bundt or cake pan. Then, to serve it, you slice it with a sharp knife. If I recall correctly, I think it's got plain m & ms and peanuts mixed in. Guess Halloween will be here before we know it.

Hi writersedge. I'll tell you what, if I make a popcorn cake to take to work or for home, I'll snap a picture of it and post it here on Mylot. Take care.

I don't make any Halloween food. Since the scare several years ago in our area with people putting razor blades, etc. in popcorn balls or other foods, I stopped making anything food related. We buy bags of candy and give out. The candy is also individually wrapped. We don't get that mamy kids anymore. Years ago we had tons of kids who lived in the neighborhood but they all grew up and moved.

People don't go door to door much where I live anymore. They have Halloween parties for their relatives. The parties are what people usually make the food for. Yes, most people do buy candy to give out, when I lived in another spot in my same area, we used to get kids and I gave out wrapped candy in bags, but where I live now, several years in a row, no trick or treaters. Most people are only going to their friends or relatives to trick or treat and we have no friends or relatives in this town. So I buy canday and my husband and I eat it.

See responses 4, 5, and 6, they do the party thing or at least the desert thing.

I made caramel apples for my son last year because he does not like nuts and all of the ones at the store are covered in nuts. I made chocolate cupcakes with orange frosting for his class at school last year too. Some kids were asking for seconds and thirds of my cupcakes.

Our apple orchards make with nuts and without nuts (mostly the second one) caramel apples. Sounds like really good cupcakes. Chocolate and orange color for Halloween, I bet they were cute, too. Thanks and take care.

Mud and worm cakes are always a good one for the kids.

I'd love to make popcorn balls or candy apples for the kids but there's no point in doing that because will all the mean things that people have done parents go through the bags and for safety throw away anything not store bought. I always buy a case of assorted potatoe chips and give each child a bag. That way they get a sealed item and I know it'll get eaten.

True, for the people who go door to door. But I used to make those with my Mom. So you could still make them with the grandkids. If the Grandkids are old enough/into that kind of thing (when they're teens, they aren't always into doing some things).
