Trick or treat! Are you guys ready for Halloween? I cannot get enough festive treats and sweets right now. 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 want to thank you for all your positive feedback on the Spooky Spider Cake from last week. I love that festive little cake and I’m thrilled you guys are enjoying it!
While I always think cake is a good idea, I also love options and we’ve got a lot! 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 Spider Peanut Butter Cookies. I think they’re the cutest little characters, and they are so easy to make. Plus, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!
There’s something for everyone here so let’s jump right in!
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!
Just in case you missed the Spooky Spider Cake last week, here it is! It’s definitely way more cute than spooky, and it’s finished with as many festive sprinkles as I could get my hands on! Even better, is the inside is Baileys cookies and cream… Save me a piece, okay?!
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.
In Buttercream Blondie land, even the spiders have sprinkles! These wonky little peanut butter spider cookies are almost too cute to eat – almost, and this is one of those cookie recipes I make all year long – minus the spider legs!
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, and there’s a new one coming your way next!
