No Tricks – Just One Treat of an Easy Halloween Dinner.


Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Breasts


  • 5 pounds chicken breasts (frozen)
  • 12 ounces (1 bottle) BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup Italian salsa dressing


  • Place chicken breasts in slow cooker
  • In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients
  • Pour over the chicken
  • Cook on High for 3-4 hours or on low for 6 hours
  • Shred chicken with two forks and serve on ciabatta or French rolls

Family Fun Strawberry Ghosts


  • 30 fresh strawberries
  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • Wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate and shortening at 50% power; stir until smooth. Stir in extract.
  • Dip strawberries in chocolate mixture; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, allowing excess chocolate to form the ghosts’ tails. Immediately press chocolate chips into coating for eyes. Freeze 5 minutes.
  • In microwave, melt remaining chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Dip a toothpick into melted chocolate and draw a mouth on each ghost. Refrigerate leftovers.
