Forget bobbing for apples. This Halloween, try serving up these horrifyingly scrumptious treats. We’ve dug up bone-chilling breadsticks, bloodshot eyeball cupcakes and eerie fudge ghosts. Following these recipes and step-by-step videos will ensure your Fright Night is a screaming success.

Tasty Halloween Treats

Get spooky and cozy this Halloween; whip up a batch of Pumpkin Bars from Archana’s Culinary Adventures and let the spicy aroma of cinnamon warm your home. Then curl up on the couch with “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and leave the trick-or-treating to the kids.

Tissue Samples and Eyeballs will probably raise a few eyebrows at your Halloween party; are your guests daring enough to dig their hands into the jar of “bloody” desserts? The tissue samples are actually beet marshmallows which, according to Brownie Points, “evoke the sugar’ed memories of Halloween candy while adding a more earthy note of winter’s fine root offering.” Meanwhile, the eyeballs are really mini cupcakes dipped in white icing and decorated with food-coloring markers.
VideoJug offers an easy-to-follow video demonstration of how to make Fiendish Peanut Butter Fudge Ghosts. The clip is sure to get you into the holiday spirit: eerie sound effects play, the chef’s hands appear to be dripping with blood and the figure of a rat watches over the baking sheet as the ghouls are sprinkled with coconut flakes.

Bon Appétit’s Pumpkin Doughnuts with Powdered Sugar Glaze are just what you need for your Halloween party. One of the more labor-intensive desserts featured here, these little rings are worth the work. Flavored with ginger, nutmeg and cloves, they make a great party game when strung from the ceiling for a doughnut-gobbling contest.

After munching on sugary candies and cupcakes all night, trick-or-treaters will welcome warm, savory Bone Chillin’ Breadsticks. Dusted with parmesan cheese and garlic powder, they also go great with chili or spaghetti dinners on cold October nights. Rhodes Recipe Box shows you how to shape dinner rolls into creepy bone shapes in this step-by-step YouTube video hosted by Halloween Twist.
