These ideas are scary good.
Halloween is the best time for good, old-fashioned scare — and desserts are no exception. Whether you're inspired by ghosts and witches or black cats — you can take the themes of your Halloween decor and your favorite scary movies and translate them into tasty sweets. Make the eerie atmosphere of your haunted house a little bit more festive with these frightfully delicious Halloween desserts, including Halloween cakes, Halloween cupcakes, Halloween cookies and other delicious treats. The choice is yours: You can go as moody or mysterious as you'd like with confections decorated as goblins, ghosts and dare we say, spiders. For a more realistic take on Halloween, consider the goodies that lean on blood, guts and eyeballs to up the creep factor.
Serve these sweet bites at your Halloween party and watch your guests be amazed with your impressive baking and decorating skills. Not throwing a party this year? Pass out the kid-friendly treats — ghost sugar cookies, mummy pups and candy corn creations — to trick-or-treaters or bring them to your kid's school party. Either way, these festive desserts will be a hit. Fair warning: They might attract a few friendly monsters to your front door, so get ready.
