Get ready to learn how to make October’s prime party favor!

I have 3 recipes so that you have the freedom to pick your poison (pun absolutely intended) - Candy Corn Stackers, Gooey Caramel Apple, & Wicked Worm Crawlers. What’s great about these recipes is you can have fun and make them your own. If you would rather put creepy eyeballs in your shots instead of gummy worms, have at it, the options are endless!

Wicked Night Crawler

This one is for all you scary spooky eerie lovers out there- I mean kind of.. it’s just fake worms but hey they are playing the part ok! Seriously this is the one that I feel like you could go really crazy with depending on the mood, add some fake eyeballs or fingers if the worms aren’t enough for you! Awaken your inner wicked night crawler for this one.
