IN THE AFTERNOON: Chocolate swamp monsters
Saving the best for last, these chocolate swamp monsters are pretty much the nut-free version of chocolate spiders – and seriously, they’re scary good! You can even bag them up and put them out for Trick-or-Treaters, but make sure you keep them refrigerated as long as possible so that they don’t fall apart.
