The Twelve Days of Halloween: Day 11

On the eleventh day of Halloween, my true love gave to me:
Eleven caramels crunching,
Ten nuts a-roasting,
Nine apples bobbing,
Eight misshapen Milk Duds,
Seven s'mores a-melting,
Six Resse's pieces,
Four gummi worms,
3 Musketeers,
Two deviled eggs,
And a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Last night we hosted an All Hallows Eve dinner pary. We made cheese fondue, and for dessert there were caramel apples and roasted nuts. A word to the wise, Werther's chewy caramels are very, very chewy. They managed to achieve a state of simultaneous cruchiness and chewiness when melted and slathered on apples slices. Conversation at dinner ground to a halt as we labored to deal with the filling-removing horror. In the future, leave these things to the experts, I say.
