perfect witchy parfait


happy halloween!
i have lots of fond memories as a kid creating the perfect halloween costume using items around our house, bobbing for apples at parties, going on hayrides, and running all over the neighborhood trick-or-treating with my brothers.   i'm not so much into the tricks, but i'm absolutely giddy over the treats.....especially when the need for that afternoon-sugar-rush kicks in, because let's face it, without something sweet-to-eat i tend to get a little, well, witchy.  so i've decided to create my own little witch-parfait using all of my favorite childhood halloween candies:  layer one is candy corn!




the next layer is a blast-from-the-past......cow tales, bit-o-honey, and smarties
(but please don't tell my dentist.....)





then on top is the chocolate.  lots and lots of chocolate, in the form of mini snickers, kit-kat bars, and junior mints.  this is a critical step, and it really can't be overdone.  smooshing the chocolate in the glass is necessary as it creates more room for more chocolate, and any overflow/spillage of chocolate during this step should be eaten immediately.





lastly, i've added a personalized sweet message with a subtle witchy warning:
have broom, will travel.....to hunt anyone down who even thinks about devouring my parfait, especially during that critical afternoon-sugar-rush time slot.  heeheehee


happy halloween, boo-tiful bloggy sweeties!!  xox


{parfait supplies:  tall glass, assorted favorite candies, lots and lots of chocolate.
broom tag:  scrapbook paper, "broom riders" stamp setblack ink pad, foam dots, popsicle stick, orange stamp pad}

Your parfait sparked an interesting conversation with my kids who were looking over my shoulder. They wanted to know why your Rockets had "smarties" written on the package lol. Here in Canada, your smarties are actually called Rockets, and Smarties are a type of candy-covered chocolates (similar to MnM's, but flatter, and sold in a box).

Now I love sweets and have eaten more than my fair share of candy...however what are Cow Tales? Have I been missing out??? Junior mints and York peppermint patties fresh from the freezer are my current favorites. Very clever parfait and Happy Halloween sign. BOO-tiful and all good treats dear...
