5 Things You Need for a Spooktacular Night In

It’s that time of the year where the weather cools down, the blankets come out, and pumpkin spice takes over the world. To me, fall means enjoying a good night indoors with my family, friends, or significant other. Here are five things to help you spend a Halloween-inspired night in:

1. Gather Your Favorite Candies

Regardless of age, I think everyone enjoys Halloween for one reason; the candy! Nowadays, there are so many different candy brands that it can be difficult to choose just one. Pick up a few bags of your favorite candies to indulge in throughout the night or invite some friends and do a candy exchange.

2. Prepare a Scary Good Meal

Cool fall weather calls for a warm, homemade meal. While you may not have all day to cook a pot roast, there are a bunch of quick, delicious meals to make for the occasion. For instance, pick up a couple pizza crusts and toppings to make personal pizzas for everyone to enjoy. If pizza isn’t your thing, check out these other scary good recipes.

3. Watch Spooky Movies

Whether you enjoy horror, animation, or thrillers; there are plenty of movies to help you get in the Halloween spirit. Netflix offers a variety of movies to choose from. Indulge in a spooky Netflix Original like Bird Box or have a Scream marathon; the choice is yours. If you don’t have any streaming services, check out Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween schedule to find the featured movie of the night.

4. Make a Cup of Hot Chocolate

Throughout the fall and winter I drink an excess of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. On a night in, I like to snuggle on the couch with a big mug of homemade hot cocoa and whipped cream. Want to know the best recipe for hot chocolate? You can find it on any can of Hershey’s Cocoa Powder. Give it a try and thank me later.

5. Decorate Pumpkins

Pumpkin decorating can be a fun activity for all ages. Grab some pumpkins, a carving set, and any other craft supplies to make the best jack-o-lantern on the block. Make it a group activity and challenge your friends to see who can carve the best pumpkin. Whichever way you slice it, pumpkin decorating is great way to get in the spooky spirit.

This list is not exhaustive and there are so many other fall-inspired activities to do throughout the season. Start fall off right by spending a fun night indoors making memories with the people you care about most.
