Halloween isn’t all about candy. There are lots of sweets that are worthy of being wonderful desserts. Today, lots of families band together to have a Halloween or fall festival party, complete with fun snacks, apple cider and special treats.
Even a small gathering can be a great opportunity to enjoy the night. For those of us who have raised our families or for those in single households, trick-or-treating may not be the event it once was. That doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a special pumpkin dessert while we answer the door to little ones seeking treats.
This recipe couldn’t be easier and it’s a good way to add a little something extra to an evening of treats. It cooks fairly quickly by slow-cooking standards. Two hours on High is enough. The texture is a moist pudding-type cake. Add a dollop of whipped topping if desired. I did.
