Chocolate Covered Witch Hats

Chocolate Covered Witch Hats, in progress

Just because you don’t want to do any baking, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still make some easy and fun Halloween treats. I got the idea for these chocolate-covered witch hats when we had an unexpected mini-heat wave and I found myself reaching for ice cream rather than for a piece of cake as an afternoon treat. The hats are easy to make and ... Read More »

Halloween Candy Bundt Cake

Leftover Halloween Candy Bundt Cake

Halloween candy is a funny thing. Unlike other times of the year, around October we’re all likely to buy candy in bulk and fill up our homes – relative to most the average day, at least – with snack sized candies and chocolates. If you have kids at home, the few weeks following Halloween are also going to find you loaded with candy. The candy ... Read More »

Homemade Halloween treat ideas

Halloween treats

Since it’s a Halloween “no-no” to pass out homemade treats, we’re all going to have to stick to individually wrapped candies and things when passing goodies out to trick-or-treaters. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t go the extra mile for our family and friends and cook up some really spooky homemade Halloween treats this year. If you need some Halloween cupcake ideas, you cannot ... Read More »

Vampire Cookies

Vampire Cookies, bitten

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 »

Slime-Filled Cupcakes from the Black Lagoon

Slime-Filled Cupcakes from the Black Lagoon!

Last year, I celebrated Halloween with a batch of Vampire Cupcakes. The cupcakes were filled with a gooey, thick cherry pie filling that made the cupcake look like it was bleeding when you bit into it. I planned on baking more this year, but couldn’t help but wonder if I could take the concept in another direction to make another Halloween treat to complement it. ... Read More »

Last minute Halloween cupcake ideas

bloggers' h'ween cupcakes!

¬†While I liked all of my Halloween creations this year, my vampire cupcakes were the things that really got me excited. Slime-Filled Cupcakes are sure to get people talking at a Halloween party, too, and take a close second to the vampire cupcakes. I know I’m not the only one who goes all out decorating (baked goods, in this case) for Halloween, either. If you’re ... Read More »

Need a scary, foodie Halloween costume idea?

terrifying halloween costume

I’ve been keeping an eye out for interesting Halloween costumes this year, although¬†I already have my costume* all planned out. I like costumes that are on the scary side, which rules out most of the food-related costumes on the market. They tend to be oversized bananas or chili peppers or something along those lines. This isn’t to say that I haven’t seen a few interesting ... Read More »

Mummy Cookies with White Chocolate Wrapping

chocolate mummy cookies

A few Halloweens ago, I baked up a batch of Gingerbread Skeleton cookies. They were made with a fairly typical gingerbread dough – complete with lots of spices and molasses – and I used some white icing (a mixture of powdered sugar, vanilla and milk) to create some spooky designs on the cut out cookies. They were some of my all time favorite cookies, not ... Read More »
