Happy Halloween!

Have a spooktacular night! I am, as I do every year, hoping trick-or-treaters will stop by. Two years ago, three kids rang our doorbell; last year it was only one. It's already pretty dark out, and no one's come, so I suppose I'll be eating "fun size" Kit Kats and 100 Grands for the next month or so. I am tempted, very tempted, to offer a 2.2-pound brick of white Valhrona chocolate to the first costumed person who crosses our path. But I suppose it is not to be. (By the way, does anyone have a recipe that calls for a kilogram of white chocolate? I'm stumped. My only idea is an awful lot of scones with cranberries and white chocolate chunks.)
