Halloween candy is hard to resist, but when you make it yourself you have complete control over the ingredients.
In a perfect world candy would be made from the best quality ingredients, corners would not be cut, and it could be something to truly be savored and enjoyed. Since the world is not perfect – yet – I make candy that I am happy to eat, and share, because I know it is made with the best ingredients. It is my little rebellion against the junk that is so prevalent on the market.
Equally rich in color and in taste, purple sweet potatoes land on the slightly sweeter side of the flavor scale — so much so that my daughter refers to them as “birthday cake potatoes,” — which got me thinking: why not make a homemade cake batter with this wildly hued vegetable as the star? Even better, why not use the sweet potatoes to make a naturally dyed frosting, too?
This Petrifying Pecan Pumpkin Shake is a treat we all can get behind. It’s easy to make, includes a vegetable, and is thick and rich while still being good for you. I love the flavors of pumpkin and pecan together and it’s a perfect autumn combination for a wholesome Halloween treat.

But if zombie teeth, weight gain and diabetes aren’t the result you want from this ghoulish holiday, check out some of my favorite ways to get the same “frightening” look and taste without the Frankenstein ingredients!
These little mummies are a modified apple dumpling that uses scraps of pastry dough to simulate bandages, apple slices for the bodies, and little bits of dry cranberry for the spooky, otherworldly eyes!
