Happy Halloween from Author Gina Meyers (recipes included)

Boo! Yes, it is scary that it is Halloween already. Nevertheless, Happy Halloween. Please enjoy the lyrics to The 12 Days of Halloween. I was introduced to this song earlier in the week at my son’s Cub Scout Meeting. Also,  enjoy these simple yet timely recipes to get you in the mood for your trick or treating- Butterbeer (found in my Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook), and Werewolf Chow (found in my Love At First Bite Cookbook).  If you ever run out of ideas, feel free to visit my YouTube Channel, recipes galore. Have a safe and sane Halloween!

Best witches, Gina

The 12 Days of Halloween Song Lyrics

2 Tablespoons of butterscotch syrup (or Carmel/Butterscotch flavoring)
1 bottle of cold cream soda
Directions: In a large mug, scoop vanilla bean ice cream, add butterscotch syrup and top with a bottle of cold cream soda.

Werewolf Chow

9 cups of rice cereal, such as Chex brand
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup chocolate chips, semisweet, or a combination of 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, not crunchy
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Directions: Place the cereal in a large ziplock-seal bag. Next, microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter or margarine for about 1 minute. If the mixture hasn’t melted, stir and place in microwave for another 20 to 30 seconds. Once melted, stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the chocolate chip–peanut butter mixture over the cereal; then add the powdered sugar and shake. Spread the mixture on waxed paper to cool.
