Wickedly Good Halloween Recipes

So many people stress over finding the perfect halloween costume, but when it comes to halloween snacks, they miss the mark. If this sounds like you, or you’re just ready to try something new this Halloween, try one of these recipes:

Don’t Tell Your Mummy (About This Brie)

Actually, maybe you should tell her because this delicious appetizer is so easy – and an instant hit to boot.

First, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. While preheating the oven to 400℉, cut a sheet of pastry puff into narrow strips and wrap them around a wheel of brie like a mummy. Next, brush the puff pastry with an egg and milk mixture and place it on the baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the puff pastry is a deep golden and the brie is warm and gooey.

Place two mini pepperonis into two sliced olives, use these as the eyes, and that’s a wrap! Find the full recipe here. 

Brownie Bat Truffles

Chocolatey delights that will make your taste buds soar.

First, bake a pan of fudgy brownies and allow them to cool while you lick the bowl (don’t worry, we won’t tell). Then, line a pan with parchment paper and grab a large mixing bowl. In the bowl, use your hands to crumble the brownies. Mix in some chocolate frosting and knead until the entire mixture is evenly moistened.

Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to measure out about 1 Tablespoon balls of this mixture. Break an oreo in half and stick one half in each side to create the wings of the bat. Repeat this until you’ve used up all of your brownie/frosting mixture. Place each bat on the baking sheet and freeze them for approximately two hours.

Once the truffles are firm, melt some chocolate, wait about 15 minutes until they come to room temperature, and dip the truffles in. Decorate them as spookily as you please. You can find the whole recipe here… if you dare.

Frozen Boo-Nana Pops

These delicious treats won’t ghost you. 

These under-100-calorie treats will trick your taste buds with how delicious they are. After preparing a baking sheet with wax paper, quarter a banana, stick a popsicle stick in the end of each quarter- and freeze.

After they’ve frozen, melt white chocolate, dip the bananas in, and add milk chocolate chips for eyes. Pop the pops back in the freezer until you’re ready for a fright (or just a yummy snack). The full recipe can be found here.

Dracula’s Dentures

A dessert good enough to sink your teeth into.

After baking some chocolate chip cookies and letting them cool, cut them in half. Frost the bottoms of each cookie half and add six marshmallows along the curved edge of the halves.

Cover with the other cookie halves and put two almond slivers in between two pairs of “teeth” to make fangs. You’ll be getting too many compliments to count with this recipe.

Pumpkin Cheese Ball

This may sound cheesy, but making this is a ball.

Combine shredded cheddar cheese, regular cream cheese, onion and chive cream cheese, and paprika in a bowl. Cover this mixture and place it in the refrigerator to chill.

Once the mixture is firm enough, shape it into a pumpkin-like ball. Remove the florets from a stalk of broccoli and shape it to resemble the stem of a pumpkin.

Slice up a few apples to pair with the cheese ball and serve to all the boys and ghouls at your Halloween gathering.
