I don't really believe that the Mexican Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is related to Hallowe'en but I could be wrong. Anyhow, it's a really neat holiday. Rather than give a detailed explanation, just Google it and there's a gadzillion sites dedicated to it. I am quite disappointed though, we have a fairly large Hispanic/Latino population here and I haven't seen any signs of celebrating, even in the Mexican restaurants. Probably because it is dedicated to honoring ancestry and that would be a more personal thing. I bought some chocolate moulds and made some white chocolate bars and pops. The darker ones are made from Nestle white chocolate and the lighter ones are made from Ghiradelli. I personally like the Nestle better, for some reason it worked better. Anyhow, I merrily put my moulds in the dishwasher after I was done and will be visiting http://www.mexicansugarskull.com/ for new ones since I melted mine.
&$^%#@!!! Bad Mr. Macabre! Bad Bad Bad!!! Handwashing good, dishwasher bad, at least for my candy moulds.
