October is one of the best months to camp. The weather is cool, the foliage is vibrant and beautiful, plus it has the spookiest holiday of the year... Halloween!
We think Halloween spent in the great outdoors is simply eerier than a Halloween spent at home. But Halloween is not just for creepy costumes, pumpkin carving and scary stories galore. Another thing that we really love about this holiday is the treats!
Halloween has now become a popular event for many campgrounds and RV parks, so if you will be out camping or RVing on Halloween, make sure you have yummy Halloween treats and Halloween snacks prepared for the trick or treaters as well as fun and easy Halloween inspired cocktails for the adults. To help we have come up with a list of easy to prepare treats perfect for a camping road trip. You may want to prep them at home and pack it to go, or if you have the means to, you can also choose to prepare them in your RV.

Our version of the Witches' Warts is very simple. These are actually sugarcoated peanuts, similar to beer nuts served in bars. All you need are print-out labels to accompany them!
Another recipe of Witches' Warts consists of chocolate coated nuts or raisins. The ingredients and instructions are basically the same, instead of adding peanuts, add the chocolate coated nuts/raisins when the sugar has caramelized and turned into the consistency of honey. Coat evenly with the caramelized sugar and remove from heat.
