Our Favorite Halloween Recipes – Bacon Treats and a Few Cocktails to Do Your Fright Night Right

While some folks think that the best way to win Halloween is by dropping loads of money on creating the spookiest, scariest haunted house vibe or by being “that” house that gives away the full-size candy bars, we firmly believe the best way to win Halloween prestige is in the kitchen.

Check out our very bacon-centric delights that our mad scientists in the ButcherBox test kitchen have perfected and share the treats widely this year or keep them as your own little “tricks” this All Hallow’s Eve.

Be warned, the recipes on this list of our favorite Halloween treats are frightening delicious:

We don’t know about you, but running around on Halloween with candy-mad kiddos in the dark is a scenario that calls for some more adult treats. The simple bourbon and bacon pumpkin-spiced cocktail takes a fall-flavored drink and adds a savory flourish of bacon.

Warning: Be careful when sharing this cocktail with the neighbors. You may end up with a zombie-like assault on your home with the neighborhood trying to break down your doors looking for more of this concoction.
