It's nearly Halloween, and the store aisles have been filled with tempting bags of candy, practically since the 4th of July. Since we rarely have trick or treaters visit, I can't justify buying those sweet treats. But I guess I can justify making a facsimile thereof. So I did.
I found these Twix Bars at This Farm Family's Life blog (click on the link if you want step-by-step photos). I thought that Halloween was the perfect time to try them. While I don't think they taste just like Twix Bars, they are a quick and handy treat to stick in lunches for the field or for your next tailgate party. (Eat 'em up! Eat 'em up! K-S-U!)
If you know your trick-or-treaters and they know you, it would be fun to package them in small plastic bags decorated with holiday stickers (and your name). Give them to the ghosts and goblins who stop by. No tricks ... just treats! (I know it doesn't work to give homemade treats most of the time. But when you have a maximum of five trick-or-treaters - and that's a good year - you know the little goblins behind the mask and they know you.)
