13 Frighteningly Fantastic Recipes for Halloween
Can you believe that it's almost Halloween? I'm so thankful for this time of year, because I absolutely love the fall, but coming off of planning a wedding and going on an epic honeymoon sure sets a girl up for PWD (Post Wedding Depression) - so having pumpkins, ghosts, and goblins (oh my!) to focus my energy on sure does help.
I really like making fun, seasonal treats this time of the year, so I decided to search the internet to see if I could find anything good. Not only did I find something fun to make - I found too many! With that in mind, I thought I'd share the great recipes and treats that you can make for your little ghouls (or even for yourself) this Halloween!
1. Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats. (pictured above) Easy and super fast to make, kids will flip out for these Frankenstein-inspired treats.
2. The Perfect Plot Graveyard Brownies. These brownies are intense - with chocolate bodies popping up from within the brownie "dirt" and gravestones made of chocolate. But the result is oh-so-cool, perfect for the age when kids are "too cool" for Halloween.
3. Candy Corn Martini. Obviously this one is for Mom and Dad, but I couldn't resist including this recipe in the bunch because the kids shouldn't be the only ones allowed to have candy, don't you think?
4. Candy Corn Kix Mix Popcorn Balls. My husband is obsessed with popcorn balls - especially around Christmas. He has loved them since he was a kid, and I know that if I want something, I should make a popcorn ball. These reimagined popcorn balls include Kix cereal and Candy Corn for a fun twist!
5. Frankenweenie Inspired Halloween Treats. A great collection of all sorts of fun Halloween treats inspired by the movie Frankenweenie, including skeleton bones, worms in dirt, and sweet skulls.
6. Candy Corn Dipped Marshmallow Pops. These would make a great treat to hand out to your kids classes on Halloween because they are just so adorable. Plus, they look quick and easy - my favorite kind of project!
7. Mummy Hot Dogs. These are so cute, totally simple, and make for a great dinner on Halloween night before the kids are off and running around.
8. Gluten-Free Halloween treats. Penelope's site includes some great ideas for those of us who are gluten free this Halloween - and she got super creative using things like muffin tops and cinnamon raisin bread.
9. Spiderweb Cupcakes. These look way harder than they actually are, which I love. These would be great to bring to a class party!
10. Easy Iced Pumpkin Brownies. Super easy - bake the brownies in the pumpkin pan, then ice them and decorate.
11. Halloween Ghost Pudding. This spooky pudding is bound to be a huge hit at your Halloween party.
12. Ghost Cake Pops. Smooth fondant makes these adorable ghost cake pops a home run. I can see the kids going crazy for these (ok, and maybe the parents, too!)
13. Sparkly Bat Cookies. These delicious looking bats are covered in homemade edible glitter - making them the perfect addition to any party!
