Halloween Recipes

Scare up some delicious Halloween party food with our easy-to-make Halloween recipes. We have creepy cupcake recipes, tasty Halloween punch ideas, a gingerbread haunted house, and kid-friendly Halloween treats. Halloween recipes are all about the presentation -- it's the holiday where your Halloween appetizers should come in spooky shapes, your Halloween party recipes should include frightfully fun themes (think "moldy" cheese balls and graveyard-inspired crackers with dip), and ghosts should float in your Halloween punch. On the sweet side, we've collected fun Halloween cupcakes and Halloween cookie decorating ideas. Both start with a purchased cupcake or cookie so you can just add creepy frosting and candy toppers to transform your desserts into Halloween delights. Our Halloween cake recipes are great for a party or to take to the office; they ensure that everyone gets a slice of Halloween fun. Let the kids play, too! Our Halloween treats for kids are approved for little hands and are sure to make your kids squeal when they're creating Halloween desserts and snacks.
