Can you guys believe our Halloween party is almost over?? We’ve had so much fun this week and hope you have, too–we’ve really loved hearing all of your feedback and fun ideas! The good thing is that both Sara and I feel like Halloween kind of kicks off the holiday season, so we have lots more fun like this coming your way in the next few months!
This is a fall twist of one of our earliest recipes, from our very first theme week. Back when our blog was, like, 6 weeks old, Sara went and had a baby, so I threw her a baby shower, complete with all sorts of goodies you could serve at a girly kind of party. All of the recipes are pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself, but every single time I serve the Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip at a party, I catch someone forgoing the fruit altogether and doing a little lot of finger dipping and even the occasional bowl-licking. It’s so good and so super easy that Sara had the great idea of doing a Halloween twist!
