Best Halloween Recipes

Halloween Fudge

Kids from miles around appear at our neighbor’s house on Halloween, looking for this treat that they’ve come to expect. 

There are recipes that bake candy corn into the fudge, but this is the real, unadulterated fudge. Add candy corn on top for a festive touch.

Blue Ribbon Pumpkin Pie

This recipe won a blue ribbon at the Goshen (Connecticut) Fair—thus the name. The pumpkin pie is nice and firm, not too custardy. It’s a basic pie recipe, but the crust turns out very well. After all, appearance and taste count most at the fair!
