Halloween is such a fun and exciting time of year for people of all ages. The days are shorter and cooler. The evenings are filled with costumes, parties, delicious foods, interesting drinks, candy, and fun.
Planning a Halloween party? Have a few kids over and want to treat them to a fun craft they can eat? Just looking for some interesting new spooky desserts?
Here are 7 fun and festive treats that are sure to delight people of all ages!
1.) Start your evening with a Spooky Spider Cocktail!
|For the adults only, of course.
These are a fun spin on a traditional White Russian. You can make these ahead of time, if you are expecting guests, and keep the mix chilled… or make them as you need them! Sprinkle with a bit of pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg and top with a festive little plastic spider.
2.) Popcorn Ghosts
|Both adorable and tasty.
These easy 5-ingredient popcorn balls are as fun to make as they are to eat. The savory popcorn is mixed with marshmallow and dipped in sweet white chocolate. Add candy eyes (or draw them on with icing!) for a festive ghostly feel.
3.) Spooky Marshmallow Pops
|These pops are so much fun to make and are perfect project to do with the kids.
Everyone loves decorating their own pops! You can half dip them in chocolate and roll them in larger candy sprinkles or fully dip them and roll them then decorate them with other candies… they are so versatile and always taste great!
4.) Two-Tone Chocolate Bark
|Who doesn’t love rich creamy chocolate?!
This recipe is easy to make and tastes incredible. The addition of the dried cranberries and sliced almonds really adds a lot of texture and flavor to offset the sweetness of the chocolate.
5.) Witch’s Hat Individual Cone Cakes
These individual cakes are a fun surprise and a nice twist on a standard cupcake. Kids simply love discovering that the “hat” is full of yummy cake.
6.) Spooky Fresh Berry Cake
|Decadent, fresh, and bright.
The fresh berries really make this cake sing! The contrast of the red berries on the white cake is also a sure showstopper.
7.) Want to do something different at your Halloween party? Or is Halloween over and you find yourself stuck with a huge load of candy? Make Halloween Candy Fondue!
|Fondue is always a crowd pleaser.
Grab a few handfuls of your favorite chocolate Halloween candy, some bulk chocolate, a small slow-cooker or crockpot, and a little heavy cream… and enjoy a decadent and fun Fondue!
Happy Halloween everyone!
