And now I am left with the enormous task of redeeming myself in the eyes of my two little ones who, like a score of other equally expectant boys and girls all around the US are anticipating ghoulish and ghostly treats to magically appear on the table for their afternoon and after dinner snacks.
Alas! I have failed them indeed.
So busy have I been with family visits, company for dinner and school bakes that I have done nothing - zero, nada & zilch to this end. Neither am I capable of spending hours on end thinking up wicked and witchy ways to delights my boys.
Fortunately, redemption appeared rather unexpectedly - in the haven of my refrigerator where I had, on this rare occasion a plethora of semi-sweet brown chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and many many red strawberries.
Having recalled these lovely bites from some Halloweens away, the fact that it is a mere 15 minutes in the making, inpired from one in the Taste of Home magazine is just the thing.
So if you too are scampering to gain some Halloween redemption, here are Ghostly Strawberries to the rescue!
