You can also substitute chopped up candy bars and gummy candy for chocolate chips in the traditional Nestle recipe.

What good ideas!!  I'd like to hear more.  We only had a handfull of Trick or Treaters last night and I have lots of candy left.  I bought one of those huge bags at Costo.

Must not be a lot of people letting their kids go trick-or-treating anymore.  We had maybe a dozen yesterday.  It used to be I would run out of candy before the night was over.  Oh well,  maybe I will just donate the left over candy to the local food pantry.

I WAS JUST READING IN THE PAPER ABOUT ANOTHER USE FOR EXTRA CANY. THIS WOMAN HAS HER KIDS MAKE ART PROJECTS WITH THE CANDY. USING THEIR IMAGINATION , SHE EVEN HAS A BOOK OUT. IT IS GOOD FOR KIDS TO USE THEIR MINDS. ONE RULE IS THEY CAN NOT EAT THE CANDY, CAN NOT TAKE ANY FROM ANYONE ELSE...CUTE IDEA. I THINK IT WOULD BE HARD NOT TO EAT ANY,THE SMELL OF CHOCOLATE...MAYBE IT TEACHES YOU WILL POWER AS WELL...HUH

Julie -- (just teasing)  I think the person you read about should be punished for child abuse.  Playing with candy - not eating it.
Bah humbug.

We actually didn't have any trick or treaters this year.  Seems to me Halloween on a Sunday always makes it slow, so I didn't buy as much to give out.  I think it's because so many groups can have parties on Friday and Saturday, so going out again it tiring on the parents.  My kids are gettting older (even though we all dress up) and we went to Fright Night at a local amusement park on Saturday.  They still went out a little on Halloween, but didn't hit as many areas as they usually do.

Just reminds me ....
I have a children's "art" class every Sunday night.  Maybe I could use those photos. 
Right now I gotta' get going on this weeks project. 
It's so difficult to come up with a project every week.

Thank you Julie ....
That's what I've been working on .... I'm making "frames" out of cardboard cut from boxes.  I'll cover those with brown construction paper.  This will frame a coloring book style of lettering on poster board saying, "Thank you Jesus" ... The lettering drawn so it can be colored with crayons.  And I got "silk" autum leaves to paste along the left edge of the frame.
We'll use a nice heavy string to make a hanger.
Back to work.
