Homespun Halloween With Chef Jamie Gwen

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - This Halloween, all the spooky fun things you do as a family are getting a ghoulish new twist. Make the most of the scariest day of the year with these frighteningly easy ideas on turning your little monsters into little chefs, making your coffee into witches' brew and giving out candy that keeps on giving.

Feel good when purchasing Halloween candy this year by looking for specially marked bags of Nestlé and Wonka candy. The packaging directs you to The Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading Program site -- -- and when you register, Nestlé donates to Reading Is Fundamental. At the same time you'll qualify to win instant prizes and monthly cash drawings. It's a win-win! Nestlé will be donating up to $250,000 to RIF. It's easy because the program codes can be found on a variety of your Halloween favorites like Butterfinger, Crunch, Baby Ruth and Wonka.

It's getting cooler out, so having hot drinks on hand makes everyone feel cozy, and if you've been out trick or treating it's a great way to warm up. Eight O'Clock coffee is perfect because you can brew up a pot for a whole party or enjoy alone while handing out Halloween candy by using Eight O'Clock coffee's new Keurig K-Cups!

Trick or treating means there's a lot of fun-size candy bars around, so take one and drop it in coffee to make a mocha the old fashioned way. Another great coffee recipe is Eight O'Clock's Caramel Apple Coffee. Just take three Caramel Apple hard candies and put them in the bottom of the mug. Then pour Eight O'Clock coffee over the top, stir until the candy melts and it's ready to enjoy! Another super easy and scary delicious idea for your extra Halloween candy is to crush up leftover Nestlé candies and sprinkle over cupcakes as a delicious, crunchy topping. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
