Our Favorite Halloween Treats

The leaves have turned. The air is crisp and cool. Pumpkins adorn every porch. Little ghouls and goblins are roaming the streets. If you're not careful, you might even find a beast that goes bump in the night. All of this adds up to one thing—Halloween is right around the corner!

In anticipation of the Halloween season, our Guild Witches put in a lot of hours to create The Children's Museum Guild's Annual Haunted House. With all of the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into the nation's oldest operating Haunted House, our Witches work up quite the appetite and they've become quite the Halloween treet experts over the years! We've gathered a few of their favorite recipes that you can make at home!

We think they're fa-BOO-lous. Give them a try...if you dare!
