Halloween Treats of All Kinds

Halloween treats from nature in my backyard. Click on the picture for a closer look.


They are falling on my garden table.


And they've fallen on my pumpkins.


And they've fallen on my pup.


She doesn't seem to mind.


The last treats from the garden.




And treats from my kitchen.


I made pumpkin doughnuts with maple frosting.


With an antique doughnut cutter.


And pumpkin doughnut holes with cinnamon sugar.


For a big Sunday breakfast.


Then I made everyone's favorite treat.....popcorn balls. And because they looked plain and not decadent enough...




I drizzled caramel over them.


Mmmmmm....looks like Halloween to me.


Help yourself.


Then I made Aussie sausage rolls.


So simple but so good.


Fresh from the oven.


And perfect for breakfast.


And one last treat for today. Candy apples.


I boiled the sugar, water and corn syrup and threw in some cinnamon nonpareils.


Then rolled the apples in it to coat them.


Taffy apples with twig handles.

Stay tuned for more Halloween treats.

The twig handles on the candy apples are adorable! And what spectacular fall colours your trees are treating you to, lucky Jaz!

I am so glad Teddy is doing so well. Makes me smile.

I have been making goat's milk caramel like it's going out of style. I probably should stop before I turn into a caramel goat.

Autumnforest said...

Thanks for the reminder, I promised my son doughnuts--better get making them! I love the picture of Teddy with the leaves on her. Lucky pup! She looks like she's guarding her autumn paradise. :-)

My mouth is watering! All of the doughnuts and apples and sausages look absolutely delicious.

Your yard is beautiful as well! The perfect place to enjoy pumpkin doughnuts and want the leaves fall.

Mother's Moon's Message said...

Mother's Moon's Message said...

oh yea... see I got side tracked by the popcorn balls and forgot to ask... will you give us the recipe for the Aussie saugage rolls... they look good too

The Soccer Moms' Guide to Wicca said...

Do you ship food? If not, will you consider selling and shipping it?

Please? Oh good goddess, I'm going into a sugar coma just looking.

I'm looking at your blog, and I don't see a store anywhere. If that's the case, you're missing out on an major moneymaking enterprise....I'd sure buy from you!

I'm not kidding. Really.

The Soccer Moms' Guide to Wicca said...

I don't see a button...Do you have one? I want to post it on my site...

Touchatou said...

Wendy Hawksley said...

What lovely photographs. I know I've told you before that you make me homesick for New England. But now even going back to Delaware (where we lived for the past 10 years) will do! :-D

Anet said...

Holy Smokes!!! Why'd ya show me this!!!!!!!

Tori said...

You made me hungry! And right before bed, too. I'll have to eat a big breakfast in the morning!

Stuff On My Blog said...

Oh my.. the candy apples with TWIG handles just totally do it for me! Those are so great :) Your pumpkin display is just spectacular!

Lyon said...

Oh my Goddess. You are some sort of culinary dynamo. I don't know how you even find the time for making all that food -but I'd love to try to do the same. ;-) Thank you for sharing. Now I need a second breakfast just to keep up. lol

mrsb said...

Oh, please share the recipe for the sausage rolls! They look awesome! As do the candy apples! I'd love the measurements for those, too! I'm so stealing the twig idea!!

Suzie said...

Your yard is lookinig SO beautiful! I just want to come over and sit to enjoy the view.

There is something about your puppy woofer that makes me smile every time I see a photo. Such a cuddly looking dog! Those looks makes you wonder just what is going on in that doggy mind. lol

Ummm, am I the only one that is noticing that one of the donuts looks like it has a slight nibble out of one, that was then disguised with glaze? A little unofficial taste testing going on behind the scenes? Hmmmmm?? lol

All of your treats look SO delicious. I wouldn't know where to start!!

Wendy the (Very) Good Witch said...

Oh, I would love to eat one of those candy apples right now...they are so beautiful! As are the trees in your yard...they look like they were painted...gorgeous!
