Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for kids and adults alike. But 2020 is a year like no other, so how can you plan to create a festive Halloween celebration at home this year?

Food and lifestyle expert Justine Santaniello joined us with some creative ways to start celebrating Halloween 2020 right now. She's teamed up with Hershey as part of the first-ever Hershey Halloween Squad, to share tips and tricks for an extra-long, extra fun Halloween.

Her first idea is to set up a scavenger hunt in your own backyard by decorating and hiding candy.

Next, Justine says you can make homemade treats with Hershey candy. She showed us how to use Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme Fangs which are snack size and each have a fang print on them. Then use a gel, colored frosting to decorate.

And, don't forget the drinks! Justine says it's easy to make a Vampire Mocktail using a clear soda like Sprite or 7-UP. You can use a syringe to inject blood a.k.a. cranberry or pomegranate juice. She suggests pairing it with Hershey's Vampire Kisses.

And last but not least, Justine showed us cute bats you can make using Reese's Franken-Cups. Sandwich cookies make the wings and then put on candy eyes.
