I think Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos crept up on me when I wasn’t even looking. Yesterday my boys reminded me that our annual pumpkin carving contest was four days away, they have yet to pick out costumes and when are we going to start stocking up on candy. Ahhh… where have I been, it’s Halloween time and I am so not ready. My boys love preparing for our Halloween activities. DG.com came to my rescue, the site is packed with ideas, tips and recipes for Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos from Nestlé!
I needed Recipe Inspiration and am loving these Caramel Candied Apples. They also have you covered with Day of the Dead Bread and a Coffee & Hot Cocoa Bar.
Since I am in need of candy, lots and lots of candy. I am going to stock up on the Nestlé Butterfinger Fun Size candy (coupon is on the Dollar general site) and the cans of NESTLE® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, (popcorn balls anyone). Need some DIY inspiration? Do what I am doing, my own take on the face painting ideas of Catrina Makeup Tips for a little Dia De Los Muertos fun. Photos via Dollar General.
