Halloween Recipes: Treats and Dessert #recipe #Halloween #ASMSG #IAN1 #MFRWAuthor

I can't tell  you how thrilled I am you stopped by for my blog hop for my new release COMES A SPECTER. This is day 14, the last day of the tour. I'm pooped; how about you? And Halloween isn't even here yet. I hope you enjoyed learning a little about Halloween customs, ghosts, scarecrows, costumes and more!

You have my sincere thanks for dropping in and entering my contest. Good Luck and May The GHOST Be With You! 

Today features two delicious Halloween recipes, one kids are sure to love, and the other everyone will gobble up before you can blink.

Halloween Pretzel Treat

INGREDIENTS
Small square-shaped pretzels
Hershey's Hugs or chocolate-covered caramels
Candy corn
Candy sprinkles (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.

2. Arrange the pretzels on the cookie sheet in an even layer, then top with a Hershey’s Hug or chocolate-covered caramel. Keep the chocolate in the center of the pretzel.

3. Place the cookie sheet in the oven for as long as it takes the chocolate to become soft, but not melt. Keep an eye on it! I usually need around 3 ot 5 minutes.

4. Carefully remove the cookie sheet from the oven and gently press a candy corn onto the softened chocolate candy. Shake candy sprinkles over everything if using, then set the cookie sheet aside to cool for about 30 minutes.

Browned Butter Pumpkin Frosted Bars (YUM!)

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) salted butter, melted
3 eggs
3/4 cup chopped sweetened dried cranberries (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
Heat oven to 350ºF.

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and ginger. Stir in pumpkin, butter, and eggs; mix well. Stir in cranberries (if using).

Spread batter into ungreased 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely.

FROSTING INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk

INSTRUCTIONS
In a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat,  melt butter, stirring constantly and watching closely, until butter just starts to turn golden brown (3 to 5 minutes). Immediately remove from heat. Pour into a bowl and cool for 5 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla to cooled browned butter and mix well. Stir in enough milk for desired frosting consistency.

Spread frosting over cooled bars. Cut into bars.

About Comes A Specter

Six months ago, Anya Fleming's ten- year-old son, Willie-boy, found his father hanging in the barn. Traumatized over his father's suicide, the boy hasn't spoken a word since. Now, Willie-boy has come down with a grave, unknown illness and there's only one man who can save him, Sutter Sky, a learned Blackfoot shaman known as Yellow Smoke—a shaman who was once deeply in love with Anya.

But Fate had other plans for Anya and Sutter—she was forced to marry Lewis Fleming, a cruel man who berated her night and day, and brokenhearted Sutter immersed himself in the mystical customs and beliefs of his People and became a shaman
.
As if Anya didn't have enough to deal with after her husband's death and son's illness, an evil, sinister ghost is terrorizing their ranch. Anya is convinced the spirit is Lewis, who apparently isn't done making her life miserable.
When she turns to Yellow Smoke for help, will he put side his bitterness and save Willie-boy? And can the renowned shaman dispel the powerful ghost from their lives and send him back to Hades?
