I’ll admit.  Ever since our kiddo’s grew up and flew the coop-I haven’t
gotten into Halloween as much as I once did.
Nope.  There are no spooky goblins and ghosts here at our house. 
Or even black spiders and terrifying jack o’ lantern
And honestly-I can’t even remember the last time
I dressed up in a costume!

 But there is one thing that hasn’t changed since those days long past

of trick or treating.
We always have LOTS and LOTS of SWEET TREATS this
time of year!
For the neighborhood kids that come calling-I’ve bagged up
a whole bunch of yummy candy.
And for hubby and I?
A nod to one of my all time favorite Halloween treats!
Peanut Butter Butterfinger Bars!
A crunchy peanut butter crust-covered in chocolate!
I mean what’s not to love?
Here’s the recipe!
Peanut Butter Butterfinger Bars
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
