Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
This is a fun Halloween treat that is easy enough for kids to help create. I modified an idea I found on Pinterest to be less expensive and easier to put together.

Halloween Bloody Baked Rats

Rating: 4.5 stars 120
This is a fun, inexpensive, creepy Halloween entree that will gross out and impress your dinner guests. It is mini meatloaves baked in tomato sauce that are shaped like rats with cheese in the middle. When you cut it open, gooey cheese will come oozing out. Garnished with a spaghetti noodle tail and carrot ears, these pests are sure to be a devilishly delectable dinner.

Witches' Brew

A fun Halloween attention-getter. Great for parties. A fake hand is frozen in a disposable glove and then slipped into the punch bowl!

Halloween Fruit Apple Teeth Treats

Rating: 5 stars 29
These are absolutely adorable, pretty easy to make, and the perfect treat to bring to a Halloween party. I brought them to my 2-year-old's school party and they LOVED them, and so did the moms! Use organic apples if possible.

Witches' Hats

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
A cute and simple little Halloween treat that everyone will love. The amount this recipe makes depends on how many cookies and chocolate kisses you have. It just depends on how many you want. The last time I made these, I ended up making about 140 or so.

Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 96
I made these broken glass cupcakes for my nephew's birthday. They turned out so creepy that I thought I would share them here for Halloween. I tried out a few different methods for sugar glass and included the method which produced the clearest glass for me.

Meringue Bones and Ghosts

Rating: 5 stars 25
While I know no one is ever actually scared by spooky Halloween treats, I do know for a fact that many people are terrified to work with meringue. Hopefully these bones and ghosts will help chase those demons away.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Rating: 4.5 stars 572
This is a very moist and light carrot muffin. It's not too sweet and not greasy like other carrot muffins/cakes. The White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing adds just enough sweetness to round it off.
