For those of you who know me, I am a bacon fanatic… I find a way to get it my belly almost every day, and I love a play on sweet and savory combinations. So here are my favorite Halloween inspired bacon dishes:

1) Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Spears from Officially Gluten Free

2) Chocolate Covered Bacon from Paleo Leap

Once upon a time, it was chips, but now I tend to sway more to the faux chip side of things… same satisfaction from eating chips but won’t make you feel gross after eating them. Here are my favorite chip substitute recipes for Halloween:

3) Warm Cinnamon Apple Chips from Jessica in the Kitchen

4) Caramel Popcorn Balls from Simply Sugar & Gluten Free
