As the Halloween weekend approaches and all the little princesses, snow whites, Elmos, batmans, princes, and Lighting Mcqueens costumes are hanging in anticipation for the one night, the cute children/ or grown-ups still wanting to be a child are encouraged to ask for sweet treats. Yes, there are those who will give raisins or carrots with dressing, but mostly yummy candy are placed in a sack after going door to door.
Sydney and I for years have baked exquisite treats for the special children and family members in our lives. I must admit we have never put together a treat bag filled with M&M’s, Reese cups, or any other commercialized candy. Not that those candies aren’t tasty, but there is something about homemade chocolate truffles, cupcakes, sugar cookies, and cinnamon chocolates.
This is our Noto Unit Tradition and we invite you to join in the fun; you may never go back to the store bought treats.

Prepare your Halloween mise en place.
The Chocolate Candies.
The Cupcakes, Sugar Cookies, Truffles ect.
Arrange the Halloween treats so that each candy or divine treat is visible, tie with either the pipe cleaner, raffia, or ribbon (anything that looks fun).
Lastly, give them away.
