About this challenge

No tricks but all the treats, please! Whether you want to satisfy your sweet tooth or break out the crockpot, we're curious what fall favorite dishes and desserts you revisit every year as the leaves start to change. What do you always make on that first cold night of fall? What's your go-to tailgate snack? Are you a pumpkin-spice-everything type of person, or is cheesy and herby more your thing?

Enter the Trick or Treats Challenge by sharing a recipe, sweet or savory, that gives you comfort as the air gets chilly. Don't forget to include all the yummy ingredients, fun memories attached, or details about what makes this such a special treat this time of year. We can't wait to see what you can create in the kitchen!
