Halloween treats

Yes, I'm at it again with more Halloween desserts, but give me a break- I'm a baker after all! So here are 5 more desserts that should be spook-tacularly delicious!


Isn't this bundt cake amazing as a spider web? If you go to the link the recipe has you dye a vanilla cake red, but if you're going to do that then you might as well make a proper Red Velvet cake. A silky, chocolate ganache would be decadent on this. The "web" could be either royal icing or melted white chocolate.


These candy corn sugar cookies are the cutest! I also thought this was a great way to cut them and get that triangular shape without needing a cookie cutter.

These Monster cookies are really fun with the candy eyes- you can find the eyes here but I found them in the baking section of Target. They were originally inspired by the movie Monsters University but they're definitely appropriate for Halloween.


These witchy fingers are just a plain sugar cookie recipe and then shape them into fingers. Use a small paring knife to create the knuckles and whole almonds for the fingernails.


These eyeball cupcakes are a little gross to look at, but I bet they taste good! Make any flavor cake and spread white buttercream as smoothly as possible. Place a lifesaver with a raisinet in the middle and then get a tube of red frosting and wiggle it out to make it look bloodshot.

I hope you get a chance to make one of these scary foods. I made the witchy fingers a few Halloweens ago and although they weren't perfect, they were a lot of fun to eat!


  1. These are all wonderful ideas to make Halloween so much more fun. I'll have to try one of these.

  2. love the monster cookies with the eyes and all the other cookie posts, so fun for Halloween. Whats the next body part cookie? marshmellow nose with red frosting dripping for a bloody nose. I do have a sick mind as you know. xoxo Snoops

    1. Snoops, I like that bloody nose marshmallow idea... gross, but a good one!

  3. Loved the puns and all of those ideas. The little veggie man really made me chuckle! Happy Haunted Kitchen Kapers!
