You can’t go wrong with a batch of Vampire Cupcakes this time of year. The fluffy white cupcakes are filled with a sticky cherry filling that not only tastes delicious with the cake, but that gives the cake a satisfyingly spooky look. This video tutorial will walk you through the process of making them from start to finish, including instructions for how to get perfect bite marks on each cupcake.
Delicate Vampire Cookies are always welcome at my Halloween parties. These tender, vanilla-scented cookies have a fruity filling that is revealed once you take a bite. Like the cupcakes, the cookies also feature the “mark” of a vampire. Putting together the little sandwich cookies takes a bit of patience (especially if your cookies are on the small side), but the results are well worth the effort.
A plate full of Vampire Pancakes will get your Halloween off to a good start. The buttermilk pancakes are filled with a dollop of red jam – I recommend using strawberry or raspberry – that oozes out when you take a bite, both giving the pancakes a chilling look and sweetening up each bite.
It’s not hard to imagine a vampire indulging in a plate full of these Cinnamon Cookie Bones with Blood Dipping Sauce and you will enjoy them just as much. The buttery, cinnamon-kissed cookies pair well with the sweet-tart raspberry sauce served alongside of them. The sauce can also be used to decorate other desserts, if you want to add a pop of color and flavor.
