Halloween is fast approaching, and the eerie holiday serves as a sweet excuse to fill up on candy and other tasty treats.
Whether you’re throwing a spooky party or just searching for a Halloween-themed treat to make for friends or family, here are five ideas for inspiration.
Halloween-inspired cake pops or candy apples
Use orange, black, green or other Halloween-colored sprinkles to decorate these tasty treats.
Drizzle white frosting to “mummify” these traditional chocolate treats. You can also use frosting to give brownies a pair of spooky eyes to complete the look.
‘Candy corn’ Rice Krispie treats
Create these “corny” treats by using orange and yellow food coloring.
Reese’s and Oreo ‘bats’
Grab a bag of Reese’s and Oreos, using the latter to create “wings” for this bat-inspired treat.
Jack o’lantern-shaped snack plate
Torn between sweet or savory? Mix the two by shaping a variety of snacks into a jack o’lantern.
