My mom and dad are visiting us in Boston, and we’re going to have a mini Halloween party on the night of Halloween. Back in Miami, my mom has always had a ton of fun food and Halloween treats on Halloween night for our friends, little trick or treaters, their parent friends and their kids who would swing by in between trick-or-treating, etc. Basically, our house was always the snack pit-stop in the neighborhood on Halloween night.
