The streets are lined with kids and everyone’s out chatting enjoying the festivities. I let my kids invite their friends over for a little pre-trick-or-treating party.

I intended to make this Chicken Taco Soup that I make every year for Halloween but ending up making my Mom’s Chicken Chili soup from my cookbook instead. Of course we had some Halloweenies, this Chili Dip, and a couple other scary treats. Butterscotch Apple Pecan Cobbler - this is divine!!

After my kid’s baseball games I even stopped by Burger King to let them try the Black Whopper. Dun, dun, duuuunnn! It’s scary. Have you seen it? The bun is black. BLACK. We actually didn’t get to try it because they stopped selling it a while ago – probably a huge blessing in disguise.

I ate so much candy. At the end of the night I never wanted to eat again…until today around 5 pm when I scurried around nabbing Reese’s from my kid’s stash.

I made this Butterscotch Apple Pecan Cobbler and fell in love. Here’s the thing. I’m pretty particular about my butterscotch chips. I will only use Nestle – the other brands taste weird to me. I must use those in my beloved Pumpkin Scotchies.

The apples in this are baked with cinnamon and butterscotch chips which melt and create this amazing sauce that people can’t quite figure out what it consists of. Then a brown sugar, nut, oat crumble goes on top and is baked until toasty. I used mostly pecans and some almonds because I didn’t have enough. It’s so good. And even great cold for breakfast…ahem.

    I just made this last night and followed it exactly. Let me just say… IT IS AMAZING! My 4 kiddos, my husband and myself all wolfed it down. I was interested to see how the butterscotch morsels turned out by just sprinkling them on top then baking but it was fantastic. If you want to come for Thanksgiving I’ll be making this again! 🙂

    YUM-O and THANKS!
