To many folks, Halloween is more than trick or treaters and scary costumes. To many, it’s party time.
For those who want the best decorated goodies at their party, or to take as gifts to a party, it’s best to plan ahead.
Think about what you want — cookies, cupcakes, doughnuts, cakes, etc. — consider your options and place an order to take some stress off the event.
Chain businesses planning special Halloween treats include Chili’s, IHOP, Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’, Wendy’s and Baskin-Robbins.
We found some locally owned spots to check out the frosted frights, too.
