Trick or treat! Halloween is right around the corner, guys and I cannot get enough festive treats and sweets! From homemade caramel apples to everyones’s favorite girly ghost cupcake trio, I want to make them all!
Before I start going on about my love of zhushing up cauldrons and dolling up ghosts with pink sparkly bows, I have some important news to share with you! In the next few weeks, Buttercream Blondie will be getting a whole new look – so exciting! I wanted to give you a heads up that we will be using a new email system, so the recipes in your inbox are going to look a little different, and a whole lot prettier! Stay tuned!
Now back to the good stuff! If you’re a fan of classic popcorn balls, make sure to check out my sweet and salty Halloween version. It’s a great recipe for parties, and kids love to make them – so do adults! Thank you very much! If I had to pick one though, it would be the Red Wine Chocolate Cake. I originally made this cake for the Oscars, but then realized it had Halloween written all over it with that deep red wine dripping down the cake! Let’s just say I’ll take any excuse to make it!
Actually, I’ll take any excuse to make any of these sweets!
Halloween Caramel Apples – These are a classic and you know how I feel about sprinkles. You’ll find all my best tips for the caramel-ing process too!
Girly Ghost Cupcakes – I kind of feel like this is the one girl group that would never break up.
Halloween Cauldron Cake – I mean, who doesn’t love a sparkly cauldron? This cake is actually super easy, as in I used a balloon to make the cauldron! How-to video included in this one.
Red Wine Chocolate Naked Cake – Lets face it, I’m here for the boos! Sorry, couldn’t help myself with that one.
Boozy Oreo Cheesecake Bars – These have party written all over them! They’re also perfect for girl’s night, or any night if you ask me!
Spooky spider cupcakes – Because in my world spiders rock sparkly bows!
Candy Corn Rosette Cake – The classic rosette cake gets a Halloween makeover!
P.S. How-to make a rosette cake video coming your way in the near future!
Pumpkin Kiss Brownies – It feels like I first made these a lifetime ago, but they are still one of the most popular recipes this time of year! They are extremely rich, decadent and over-the-top! Exactly what dessert should be, right?
Tip: Freeze brownies for an hour before cutting to achieve clean edges.
Pumpkin Kiss Pretzel Bites – These little gems are so unsuspecting. It’s that one treat you will keep going back to – trust me…
Candy Corn Popcorn Balls – Sweet, salty, and I’m not one bit sorry! I think these are so fun to make and the addition of salty peanuts balances out the sweet beautifully! These are a party must!
Do you have one recipe you make every Halloween, or do you like to change it up and try different ones? I love mixing it up, but I always like to create one wonky little creature of sorts!
Speaking of wonky little creatures, make sure to check the blog next week for what just might be my favorite Halloween treat yet, and one you definitely won’t want to miss!
