Spooky Halloween Treats That Will Make You Scream

October 13, 2014

A little bit spooky and a little bit sweet, these treats are all perfect for celebrating the holiday and still make satisfying snacks. We love how creative these cooks have gotten with some pretty simple ingredients. Three cheers for the candy season! 

Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

From Tutu Dulci

Cheesecake just got a scary-good upgrade with this deliciously decadent flavor combo. Rich chocolate and creamy pumpkin make this a delightful treat and so festive! 

Frightful Friday: Bloody Mary Cupcakes

From So Sweet Like Sarah

These cupcakes are a scream! We just love the idea of a Bloody Mary theme, and the broken shard of glass is just pure genius. Check them out! 

Candy Corn Cupcakes

From the Spiced Blog

Not everything we recommend is frightfully creepy. We also adore the candy corn themed treat, and this cute cupcake is no exception. Aren't they neat? These would be perfect for your little chef's school party. NOM

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Parfaits

From Two in the Kitchen

This is such a fabulous treat, we had to share. It's a special finish for a fancier holiday meal, and what a flavorful dessert. Layers of pumpkin pudding and cinnamon cream cheese filling, with beautiful layers of pumpkin snickerdoodles throughout. What a treat! 

Creepy Stickman Marshmallow Fruit Kabobs

From Chef de Home

A fun treat, these would be perfect for your little chef's lunchbox. Appropriately creepy for even the littlest kids, these would be a welcome change to the normal lunchbox fare. 

Toffee Apples

From Signet Kitchen

Toffee apples are the perfect treat for Halloween, and these are not only yummy, they are also beautiful. Here is what happens when candy apples grow up and become amazing. 


If you want to make your own candied apples, we did find this really cool video showing you how to do it. The only thing we recommend is not to have the youngest chefs helping you. Boiling hot sugar can be dangerous.
