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 »

6 Filled Halloween Cupcakes and Other Tricky Treats

Mmm...Brains! Cupcakes

Halloween is about tricks and treats, although the tricks usually only manifest themselves as scary costumes and people play up the sweets.

Monster Cookies are the perfect cookie to make when you can’t decide what flavor you’re in the mood for.

All three doughs work well together, but have distinctive enough appearances and flavors that they make for an unusually good – and unusually good looking – cookie. The vanilla chocolate chip ...

Halloween Oreo Cheesecakes

Halloween Oreo Cheesecakes

Oreo cookies are a great addition to cheesecake, whether you use them in the crust or chop them up and mix them into the batter.

I like them in ... Read More »

Halloween M&M Chocolate Cookies

Colorful, spooky Halloween M&Ms

I am a big fan of the Halloween M&Ms this year. They’re not just black and orange, but black, orange, neon green and purple. The combination of colors looks fun, bold and a bit spooky. I honestly love the look of them. I wanted to showcase their bright seasonal colors in something other than my candy dish, so I incorporated them into a batch of ... Read More »

Vampire Cookies

Baking Bites' Vampire Cookies

Every year I see lots of Halloween cupcakes and cakes that are rather boring in their decorations. They may have faces of ghosts or vampires painted on top with colored icing, but that really doesn’t do much to set them apart from non-holiday cupcakes. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think it’s fun to go over-the-top where ever possible and really take ... Read More »
