Today I am sharing a recipe for candy calzones, which are flaky pastry turnovers filled with chocolate Halloween candy bars.
Using pre-made pie crusts, they are very simple and quick to get together, and taste great. So if you are looking for a little special Halloween treat to make for the kids, or maybe when Halloween is past want to find a way to repurpose and lighten your load of Beggar’s Night treats, this is just the recipe for you.
Festive Foodies bloggers have joined hands to bring you a collection of favorite Halloween recipes, both today, and again on Thursday, so join us both days.
On Thursday I will be sharing my recipe for devilishly spicy Ghost Cheddar Popcorn, a treat not for the faint of heart, but again, not too spicy either. Perfect for your Movie Night at home with a Halloween Film Fest.
What is your favorite Halloween movie? I am a scary movie addict, so pretty much like them all. Everything from “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” to “The Exorcist” that pretty much sums it up from A-Z.
