OMG! What a great idea! thanks Beth...love it!

Laurie said...

and favorite candy would have to be peanut butter cups!

debbie said...

My favorite candy is heath bars. Once I took my little sister trick-or-treating,she is 12 years younger than me. This boy around the block, knew I was taking her trick or treating, and wanted to pull a prank on me. He rigged a body to come out of the tree when we walked by. It scared my sister so much she wet her pants. He felt really bad about it and gave her a bunch of candy.
I commented on your recipe.

My favorite candy is Reese's PB cups or Butterfingers...must be the pb and choco combo. :)

Rachel said...

My favorite memory is winning a radio contest when I was a kid. To encourage kids to be home by a certain time they would hold drawing after 10 pm and I won a Dr. Pepper prize pack!

Beth, I love your creative genius! I guess you might call it "Sweet Inspiration." (Hey, that could be the title of your next book!)
Now, it's going to look like I'm trying to kiss something, but my favority candy is your chocolate truffles. They are awesome. If I have to choose a favorite of a more commercial nature it'd be heath bars...or butterfingers...or sugar babies. Pretty much anything that sticks to you teeth with the exception of tootsie rolls.
A good Beggar's Night memory:
We didn't have much money and buying a costume was out of the question. I always liked something that looked different. So I got an old t-shirt and sewed a skinny two-sided pouch down the back, and added another three sided pouch to the back of a pair of jeans. Then I got the handle to a mop my mom threw out, and nailed a laundry basket upside down on one end. I drew a BIG crazy face on a bed sheet, threw it over the laundry basket and stuck the mop handle into the pouches. I had a costume that was about nine feet tall, easy to wear, and was fairly different. Got lots of candy that night!
Your quesadilla recipe sounded good, but I didn't try it. We went to the opening night instead of having an eclipse party. But I like the idea: change the image to suit the occasion.

Hey Pete,

I LOVE the fact that my chocolate truffles are your favorite candies. My friend gave me some red currents this week and I made truffles using their juice. Yum! I have extras if you'd like some:) I also love creative costumes. I never wore a store bought costume as a child. Of course back then store bought costumes consisted of a plastic mask and a plastic cape.

I love Chico Stix!

Thanks!

Without question, my favorite candy is Reese's Pieces. Sometimes my husband will surprise me and bring home a bag, and I just find them irresistable!

A couple of years ago, I was walking with my kids and this guy, dressed up as a zombie was following us. My kids were little at the time, so I didn't say anything to them, but boy was I wierded out. I was actually afraid. I told them that we were done for the night and that I had more treats for them at home and we headed directly home.

i have memories of those houses you could not miss. my neighborhood never did much, but we'd go to other places and it was a lot of fun. i know one street had a lot of their neighbors at ONE house so you'd go in a circle in the yard and grab from each bucket.

clynsg said...

Must be a regional thing, but I had never heard of Halloween being called Beggars Night--it fits though. My memories are not terribly specific, but because my childhood was a LONG time ago, it was before all the fears of homemade goodies, dangers put into fruit and candy, etc. I lived in a very small town and we knew virtually every house we would go to--one of my favorites was that of one of my classmates. Her mother made the BEST divinity--but my mother loved it too, so the 3 of us kids had to divide up that particular house loot with her!

Beth Jackson Klosterboer said...

It is so fun to see the variety of candy people have listed as their favorite. I so love to hear your stories about Beggars' Night (Trick or Treat). Here's one of my memories.

One year it was so cold on Beggars' Night and I was dressed as a Baton Twirler. I wore a leotard with a very short skirt, had my hair done up and wore more makeup than any 8 year old should wear. I proudly carried my baton, twirling for candy at each door. We started out the evening so excited that we barely noticed the cold but it didn't take long before I had to run home to get some long pants before going off to beg at more doors. The evening air grew increasingly colder as we ran from house to house, so when we reached our backyard neighbor's house, I ran home for a coat. As the night wore on my baton began to stick to my hands, so I left it at a friend's house. At that point we still had lots of houses to get to and unfortunately I just looked like an 8 year old who had raided her mom's makeup drawer. I got lot's of comments, but still got candy and that is all that mattered to me.

My favorite candy is Reese's peanut butter cups (original--tried the dark chocolate and didn't like them at all).

A favorite Halloween night memory is when I was about 5 years old and my mother sewed me a cool pink ballerina costume with a net tutu--still remember twirling around in our yard waiting for it to get dark!

becky said...

My favorite memory is when I was in junior high, my friend had a Halloween party and we thought we were the coolest kids ever. But when we went trick-or-treating, a creepy guy dressed as Batman kept following us so we got scared and ran home. Needless to say, we stayed inside the rest of the night! Random but funny memory : )

I can vividly remember running ahead of the pack in order to be the first to knock on the door. I tripped on the curb and landed on a large cactus. OUCH! I had to go back home and let my Grandmama pick out the thorns. Trick-Or-Treating was over before it started.

My mom always made super cool Halloween costumes for us and it was great because it wasn't just like what everyone else had it was unique. One year she made a matching costume for her and me, it was a dragon and it was such a great costume everyone was talking about it for weeks afterward. I definitely felt super cool! :)

I wasn't sure if the comment was on the twilight enchiladas was supposed to be on that post or this one, so I wrote it there, and I'll copy it here:

WOW! I scrolled down the page looking for the picture, LOL! Once i saw you talking about stencils I realized I'd passed it by thinking it was just a plate!!

I think that this looks like an awful lot of work - I hope that whoever makes it has people over who would be thrilled by it!!

and black teeth after eating it?! LOL! Guess that will show the moms who brushes and who doesn't!

Halloween was fun when I was a kid. You didn't have to worry about the crazies that are out there not. But one of the last years I went, I took my nieces. They were 8 years younger than me. Well someone ended up grabbing our bag and running down the street with it.

It was so much fun twisting and turning our way through the string web!
