We had such an ahh-mazing time last night! Everything was just perfect – good food, great friends, kids got along & played together so well (for the most part) & not a huge amount of tears, and the weather was just perfect! I was a little worried because we had really chilly temps a few days before. I ran out & got warm, knit tights to go under Reesey’s costume (just in case) as we already had a white long-sleeve top for her. She literally wore this costume all day, y’all! But, she definitely was the cutest little fairy I ever did see (if I do say so myself.)
These were taken while still at home. I was a total #momfail & didn’t take a single picture of all the kiddos actually Trick-or-Treating.
And since my insanely awesome BIL makes the BEST gumbo every year, we always bring other yummy goodies to share as well as candy for the “pot”. Everybody wins! I’ll share my contribution to the night as I’m pretty stoked about how good it was. I had to literally give myself a little pep talk & make myself STAHHHHPPP eating it. Luckily there’s still some left over in my fridge. 🤗
Wait for it & be prepared for your mouth to instantly start watering! 👇🏻
- 16 oz caramel dip (found by the apples)
- 8 oz block of cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 bag of toffee bits
- green apple slices (I prefer Granny Smith, unless Honeycrisp are available because we all know Honeycrisp are pretty much LIFE)
Mix cream cheese & sugar until well blended. Spread on platter or dish as bottom layer. Next, spread caramel dip over cream cheese mixture very generously til you have used the whole container. Top with toffee bits. If you’ve made this awhile in advance, you can refrigerate until ready to display.
Easy peasy, right?
