Spooky Halloween Treats

By Alexandra Pettit, AZFB Communications Intern

As a kid one of my favorite holidays was Halloween. Every year my family would decorate the entire house in spooky Halloween décor and plan our costumes weeks in advance. By far my favorite thing about Halloween time was the fun food that we would make. When I was younger each year my mom choose a “Creepy” Halloween meal, things like Hotdog fingers, eyeball spaghetti, and Jack o lantern pizza.
