Easy Candied Caramel Apples (without Corn Syrup)

Easy Candied Caramel Apples (without Corn Syrup)

Candied apples are one of those classic Halloween treats that looks better than it tastes. The candy coating on a candied apple is usually a thick, bright red candy shell that doesn’t add much in the way of flavor to your apple (though some are heavily seasoned with hot cinnamon spice) and proves difficult to bite through. This season, I wanted to make candy apples ... Read More »

Chocolate-Striped Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate-Striped Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie and make several every year throughout the holiday baking season. The creamy texture of a good pumpkin pie coupled with the warm spices of fall makes for the perfect seasonal dessert. But I don’t always make the same recipe every time I bake a pie using pumpkin. After all, a traditional pumpkin pie can get a little boring after a while ... Read More »

Fudge Monster Cookies

Fudge Monster Cookies

Making desserts for Halloween is tremendously fun. It’s a holiday where you not only have the license to indulge in all kinds of desserts and candies, but where you have permission to go for crazy decorations, wacky food colors and other fun touches that aren’t usually found in dessert. Great examples of this include my Zombie Graveyard Cake, bloody Shortbread BonesĀ and Cupcakes from the Black ... Read More »

Mini Pumpkin Spice Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Mini Pumpkin Spice Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Oreo cookies make a great no-bake crust for cheesecakes and ice cream pies. The cream filling in the cookie sandwiches adds sweetness to the wafers and helps the crust hold together, even if it isn’t baked to set it like a traditional crumb crust. When it comes to mini desserts, however, there are times when you don’t even need to crumble up the Oreos for ... Read More »

Wilton Halloween Eyes Easy Cookie Pan

Halloween Eyes Easy Decorate Cookie Pan

When I was a kid, one of my favorite Halloween decorations were a set of monster eye window decals, which I would stick all over the front windows of the house to look creepily out over any trick or treaters that might come to the door. I used that set for years, until it got lost in a remodel, but I still remember those cartooney ... Read More »
