Fall is here, can you feel it in the air? I wish I could say I could but here in the desert of Southern CA, it’s been in the low to mid-90’s all week. It’s hard to really enjoy the season when it’s still this hot but we’re trying to make the best of it!
This past week, we drove past a church that had a sign out front talking about the beauty of Fall. My 14-year-old daughter looked around and commented on how Fall isn’t very pretty around here and truth be told, she’s right. But, we did talk about how pretty it is in other states with the leaves changing and the temperature dropping.
With Fall comes Halloween and that is always a fun time! Have your kid’s already picked out their Halloween costumes? I have to admit that we haven’t even talked about it around here! Again, it’s hard to get into the mood with these high temperatures but we attempted to do just that last night when we made a fun dessert!
These Frankenstein Halloween Brownies are simple to make, kids LOVE decorating them and they’re delicious. They’re perfect for a fun dessert or for your spooky Halloween party!
