bewitched!

parenting-magazine-halloween-treats-2010

It has been a wonderful week for the shoppe and for me personally. So wonderful in fact that I’ve not gotten done all the things I had planned to do. That said they are on the list, like showing you every last detail of my son’s science birthday party, but not today. Today, I’m heading into a weekend of fall festivals and family fun so when I got home this afternoon and spotted this bewitching dessert idea in this month’s issue of Parenting magazine, I just had to share.

Pick up a copy for all the details on how to make this spooky dessert and several others, plus some really fun DIY Halloween costume ideas. I think the mail man was my favorite. {wink}

Happy weekend everyone!
