Happy Halloween Two Thousand and Fifteen!

Love a good chalkboard sign

It doesn't even feel real that it's already time for Halloween! Where did the time go? (Another holiday closer to Christmas!)

It was a pretty chill Halloween for the hubs and I this year. I worked and then came home and we watched the rest of the Clemson game. (8-0!) No little ones yet and there is no trick-or-treating in our neighborhood so nothing to get excited about.

Our Halloween tradition we started last year and we continued this year is to watch Hocus Pocus (duh) and, being the Harry Potter fans that we are, make Butterbeer! It is so easy and so delicious! We visited Harry Potter land last summer (during our spontaneous weekend trip to Orlando where we got engaged! More on that later, promise) and were able to try some bonafide Butterbeer! This recipe tastes pretty darn close...

For the drink:

24 oz cream soda
2 teaspoon vanilla butter nut flavoring

All you do for this is mix the flavoring in with your cream soda.

Next, for the delicious cream topping:

1 7 oz container of marshmallow fluff
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon rum extract

Mix together with electric mixer until smooth (and whipped!)

Add the cream topping to the top of your cream soda mixture and enjoy!

(To get a more frozen consistency, freeze cream soda mixture in plastic cup 3-4 hours before adding cream topping.)

What are some Halloween traditions you and your family have?
