Halloween is just around the corner, and I am here to share with you a few fun and simple recipes that everyone will want to sink their fangs into.

Caramel apples can be essential to any Halloween feast but they are also messy; apple slices on a stick are a little twist on a classic treat that will make it a less challenging bite. A fun refresher is necessary, and this Apple cider float is sure to impress; the sweet and salty drink will keep you on your toes with its fizzy surprise. Ghoulish worthy chili has a bit of kick to it and a presentation to brag about.

There is so much that goes into hosting a Halloween party and cooking takes up a lot of the time. Here are three of my favorite delicious and time saving recipes.
