A showery and foggy start, then dry costumes, candy

Despite the past few dreary, rainy days, trick-or-treaters might actually stay dry this year as they collect their Halloween bounty.

Classic scary face makes holiday cookie sandwich

Molasses and spice make for great autumnal flavors. In this cookie sandwich we’ve taken a chewy gingerbread pumpkin cut-out cookie and added fun jack-o’-lantern faces and a lightly sweetened cream cheese filling. For another fall theme, the cookies also could be made with leaf-shaped cutters.

Halloween sangria that’s sweet, slimy and swampy

Up the gore factor of this Halloween sangria – designed to resemble swamp water but to taste like a sweet autumnal nectar – by adding a drizzle of green swamp slime to the rim of the serving glasses. Making edible slime is a snap. In a wide, shallow bowl, mix together a few drops of green gel food coloring and about 1/2 cup of glucose syrup (light corn syrup also can be used), which is available online and at baking and craft stores.
