Here are 21 super cute homemade Halloween treats to make and eat!

Halloween is just around the corner. Are you going to be celebrating? Maybe doing some chute-or-treat? Mike told me about this the other day: apparently people are creating slides so they can slide candy down to trick-or-treaters from a safe distance. Personally I’m going to be making us a bunch of homemade halloween treats to nom on while we binge watch something scary but not too scary on Netflix. What about you?
