7 Halloween aka Spooky Season Sweet Treats and Desserts
Happy Halloween friends! Halloween is all about the candy and treats, at least it is at my house. I don’t like creepy movies or scary decorations unless they are made with sugar and are a little playful too. If you are hosting a party or attending one and need a festive treat here are 7 sweet treats for Halloween.
These spooky season treats are easy to make and are always “fan” favorites at parties and gatherings. Each recipe can be customized by you or your kids and they can also be semi-homemade by using purchased cakes or cupcakes from your store bakery. These are easy last minute treats you can make today to celebrate tonight with your family, friends and neighbors.
Speaking of Halloween you might enjoy this post I wrote in 2011 about My Grandmother the Witch.
Halloween Spiderweb Cake & Mummy Cake
Marshmallow Spiderweb Cake, you can make any flavor cake and decorate it with frosting and the marshmallow webs. You could also purchase a cake and decorate it. The webs are so easy to make, just melt marshmallows and pull them apart until you have strings. Lay the strings on the cake in a spiderweb like pattern.
Chocolate Mummy Cake. This cake could not be any easier to make, simply bake a cake or cupcakes , it doesn’t matter if it is round or square. Then use a flat piping tip to make bandages of frosting. For the eyes, use one of your Oreo cookies split open, then add an M & M.
If you do not have time to make your own frosting you can purchase it, but don’t buy it in a can go to the bakery. A little known fact, most store bakeries will sell you a quart of frosting or frosting in piping bags. I haven’t purchased one yet but I know a lot of people that do and they love it.
Halloween Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting. Cupcakes, scratch made or purchased are piled high with piped icing in festive Halloween colors and then decorated with seasonal sprinkles. The kids love to make them and to eat them too.
Chocolate Covered Halloween Oreos
Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos. Everyone loves Oreo’s especially if they are covered in chocolate. White chocolate, dark chocolate of colored candy melts are all great choices from these dipped cookies. You can leave them plain or embellish them with sprinkles and candy. I make these for every season because my grandkids love them.
Moist pumpkin Bread isn’t a spooky treat but a classic Fall snack or dessert. “Jazz” it up with some holiday chocolate candies or decorate the top with some chopped candy bars or just enjoy it plain.
Monster Munch Popcorn
Halloween Monster Munch with Popcorn and Candy . Get out your pop corn popper, melt some chocolate, drizzle it all over the popcorn, then embellish a little or a lot with candy. M&M’s, Reeses pieces, Halloween sprinkles or whatever else you like to add to your chocolate covered popcorn. Let the mixture set, then break apart and put into cellophane bags or Halloween tins.
