Healthier Halloween Treats

Healthier Halloween Treats

Hi friends! Happy weekend-before-Halloween! This time of year was always a favorite for me growing up… not so much for the halloween candy, but for the homemade chocolate pumpkin-y treats that my mom would bake. I liked a good 3 Musketeers bar, but I loved pumpkin brownies and cookies even more. So in the spirit of things that won’t get stuck in your teeth, here are some homemade favorites that I’ve made and a few tasty treats from others’ sites that had me drooling this week:
