Halloween Costume Giveaway…

The giveaway is now closed and the winners have been contacted.

Halloween is coming up and I’ve already got my costumes for my kids but not for myself. I miss the days when I could coordinate family themed costumes but now my kids have strong opinions on what they want to be.

HalloweenCostumes has offered to give TWO of you $40 credit to their site so you can pick out a costume for you, your honey, your kid, or your pet! Here are a couple of their fun FOOD inspired costumes but they also have everything you could ever want.

Leave your email and a comment telling me your favorite Halloween food or recipe.
Contest will end Sunday, October 14th at noon (EST) so that the winners can get their costumes as soon as possible.

Make sure you’re following The Girl Who Ate Everything for the latest recipes!

  18. peanut butter cups! Though, I am anxious to try the witches brew spinach and cheese soup over at Annie-eats http://www.annies-eats.com/2012/10/04/witches-brew-cheesy-spinach-soup/

  19. My favorite Halloween recipe is a simple one, but a nostalgic one. Every year, when I was a kid, we would take the pumpkin seeds we scraped out of our Jack O’lantern pumpkins and we would dry them out and roast them. YUM!

  20. CARAMEL APPLES. My Halloween is never the same without them.

  21. I always think about home made Tea Cakes (somewhat like sugar cookies) at Halloween. Back in the day (yes, a LONG time ago) my parents felt comfortable with us kids accepting hand made goodies when we went out trick-or-treating. One of the older ladies in the neighborhood always made Tea Cakes & Popcorn Balls. I loved (I mean REALLY loved) Mrs. Leona’s Tea Cakes.

  22. Candy Corn…. my favorite halloween food is Candy Corn. Especially with a cup of coffee.

  23. Caramel apples! And hot apple cider!

  24. OMG those candy corn pumpkins. I LOVE.

    Fall food rocks! Chili, carmel corn, spaghetti squash!

  41. pumpkin muffins! :)

  42. Candy Corn!!!!!

  43. My favorite fall foods are caramel apples, chili, cider, & candy!

  44. While I love candy corn and caramel apples, I have to say warm apple cider takes the cake. Definitely a great treat after sitting outside and passing out candy!

  45. My favorite Halloween “food” is what I call “pumpkin brownies”, which sounds misleading, because there isn’t any pumpkin in them. I just bake brownies in a round foil pan, cover with orange icing, and make a jak-o-lantern face with m&ms and candy corn. I make them every year. Yum!

  46. My favorite Halloween food is Carmel Apples. One house in our neighborhood always gave them away on Halloween night. We had to wait to go there last so it wouldnt get all over the rest of our candy.

  47. My favorite Halloween food is definitely a pumpkin cinnamon sheet cake. I found the recipe a few years ago and both my husband & brother (who do not like sweets) are obsessed with it as well!

  48. I love making Nutter Butter ghosts. Dip Nutter Butters in White Chocolate then Make spooky faces on them with black frosting. Sooo good with a glass of milk.


  49. Pumpkin Cookies!! And they aren’t just for Halloween. You can make them all through fall!!

  50. Because Halloween needs more sweets … :) — we love a version of brownies with a mint layer on top and then more chocolate frosting. Delicious, and the green makes them a bit eerie as well. Thanks for a great giveaway – my two who still trick-or-treat are woefully costume-less so far.
    thanks too for your yummy recipes. You are the *only* food blogger I follow on FB.

  51. My favorite is my mother in law’s homemade doughnuts. We get together on Halloween and the kids get to decorate them however they want.

  52. Apple cider donuts! My all-time favorite!

  53. My fave Halloween food is pumpkin anything! I love pumpkin stuff!!! And with Pinterest I am finding all sorts of new pumpkin recipes!

  72. Pumpkin dip is my favorite!

  73. Love me some halloween candy! We don’t really have a special food so candy it is!

  74. My favorite, probably just because it was a family tradition growing up is dinner in a pumpkin:

    1 (6 -7 inch) sugar baby pumpkin
    salt and pepper
    3 tablespoons honey mustard ( or prepared yellow mustard and 2 tablespoons brown sugar)
    1 eggs
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
    1 1/2 lbs ground beef
    1/2 cup dry Italian breadcrumbs
    Cut top from pumpkin in a zig zag design.
    Remove seeds and stringy insides.
    Place pumpkin in a baking pan; add about 1 inch of hot water.
    Cover pumpkin and pan with foil.
    Bake at 400 degrees F. for 45 minutes. (Or microwave for about 14 minutes.).
    Season inside of pumpkin with salt and pepper; brush with honey mustard (or yellow mustard and sprinkle with brown sugar).
    Combine egg, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, ground beef and bread crumbs; mix well.

  75. My favorite Halloween food is snicker doodle fingers. Roll the cookie dough to finger shapes, press a tooth pick a few times around the knuckle area to look like a knuckle, and place an almond sliver where the finger nail would go. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. The light dough color combined with the cinnamon and light color of the almond looks death-ish, and I gag just about every time I see these. Which is why they are a spectacular Halloween food!

  76. Candy!!

  77. Donuts and apple cider!
    holliister at gmail dot com

  78. Cupcakes with fun colorings are always a Halloween fave around here. Especially with spider rings in the frosting…. yay!

  85. My favorite Halloween food(s) are: Apple dumplings, chili and apple cider.

  86. Every year since I was small (there was a gap until we got kids) we make pumpkin-shaped cookies and decorate them to look like Jack-o-lanterns. It has more to do with the memory of doing it with my family than anything, and we’ve continued it with my nieces. Last year, my then three-year-old niece, Grace, was old enough and had the attention span to help more, and decided to lick the icing bowl, with predictable results!

  87. My family’s favorite Halloween food is Mummy Dogs! Every year, it’s the same thing, and it wouldn’t be Halloween without them!
