Candy Corn Peanut Butter


I don't like getting started on Halloween until it's October. While it seems like most of the grocery stores around here have been fully stocked for Halloween since the beginning of summer, I am trying to hang on to every ounce of summer that I still can.

But this is still my first winter in Toronto, which means, according to my boyfriend, that I will need to invest in some long johns. Before now, the only kind of long john I was familiar with was the doughnut.

So while the weather is getting colder, I can find solace in the pumpkin treats and abundant supply of candy that somehow materialize in my house the minute October rolls around.

So it begins...

Halloween is my boyfriend's favorite holiday. Weird, right? It's not like he's some teenage girl wanting to show off their hot bod. He doesn't dress up, he doesn't host or go to Halloween parties. And it's one of the rare holidays where gift giving isn't a thing unless you are a young child going door to door. So what's so special about Halloween?

My boyfriend loves the colors of Halloween. He also likes seeing the cute little kids in their cute little costumes. Since we live in a basement apartment, we are even thinking of putting a sign up pointing to our side door entrance so that kids can come and collect more candy.

Although maybe it's an excuse for him to buy candy. His whole "let's be healthier" resolve is fading fast.

So in that spirit, and the spirit of Halloween, I have candy-fied homemade peanut butter. What can be better than a jar full of candy corn peanut butter that just tastes like pulverized butterfingers? I bet you that I can eat the whole thing with a spoon in 5 minutes flat.
