Kaylin's Kitchen - Eat, drink, and be scary!

Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." And then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn't know what to do. I'd knock on people's doors and go, "Trick or treat . . . no thank you."   -Rita Rudner

Greet your Halloween guests with some of these spooky sweets!
