In case you are still trying to decide what sorts of spooky treats you want to make for Halloween, I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas both from my own blog as well as other websites. This may actually make the decision even more difficult – there are just too many awesome ideas out there!
These brain with blood clot cupcakes are probably the grossest thing I have ever posted, and I still love them dearly for all their disgustingness. So perfect for a Halloween party, though people may be a little creeped out about eating them!
The Halloween sugar cookies I made last year were fun and festive. They would make wonderful favors for a Halloween party.
I originally made these vampire cupcakes for a die-hard Twilight fan, but they are equally suitable for Halloween. If you really want to make them Twilight-esque, you could sprinkle with some shimmer dust ;)
Of course, if you’re more on the werewolf side of things, you might enjoy these werewolf cupcakes instead. They are time-consuming, but the end result is pretty spectacular.
Another stomach-turning sweet treat is these eyeball cupcakes. If you can bring yourself to take a bite, they are actually delicious – red velvet cupcakes dressed up to look icky.
Every year I can’t resist buying at least one bag of candy corn. And then inevitably I eat a few pieces, and sort of forget about it (how can you blame me with all these mini Twix bars around?) I always love the look of layered desserts and these candy corn parfaits from Baked Bree are not only gorgeous, they are a great solution to the problem of left over candy corn.
These dead ladies’ finger cookies are so awesomely creepy. It seems dismembered body parts are integral to Halloween decor. I’ve seen these cookies all over the web but I particularly like this presentation from Martha Stewart. This year I went a little more on the cutesy side of things with my treats, but these are just too cool to miss. I think I’ll go back to gross next year.
These graveyard pots de creme from lol foodie are a creative variation on the old childhood favorite dessert dirt pudding. I think kids and adults alike would really enjoy these, and they would be a lovely yet morbid ending to a Halloween meal.
Finally, here is a quick recap of the other Halloween treats I have posted this week:

Have a creepy fun weekend everyone!
