While some Halloween treats never get old, Pinterest and digital media has introduced us to a slew of new and creative recipes. Though treats like candy corn and bite size Snickers remain as fan favorites for All Hallow’s Eve, the new millenium has given rise to a new generation of delicatessen like Bloody Brain Cakes and Eyeballs on a Stick. These Halloween Treats are sure to make October 31st a screaming event.

Make these spider snacks with Hostess and Little Debbie snack for the bodies and Pocky candy for the legs. The multiple candy eyes are a necessary addition to make these spider snacks look even more believable.

5.  Bloody Brain Cakes

These cupcakes will be a sure scare, completed with cream cheese icing shaped in a candy brain mold with raspberry sauce for extra “real-looking” blood and brains.


6.  Pumpkin Fudge

Make cubes of pumpkin fudge to impress all your friends at the party; a delectable treat for anytime in the fall or winter season.

Healthy and easy to make, these mini jack-O-lanterns are made from a base of rice and carrot juice.

8.  Hot Spiced Cider

Add to the taste of the fall season with a steaming cup of spiced apple cider. This is even a soothing treat for the Christmas holiday.


9.  Witches’ Brew

Spook everyone with this fizzing green-lime flavored witches’ brew. Finish by wearing a tall witch hat and serving over a bowl of dry ice for the added steam effect.


10. Eyeball Ice & Eyeballs on a Stick

A true Halloween party won’t be complete with out creepy eyeballs!

Eyeball ice cubes are a great addition for serving cold beverages. Made from almost-peeled radishes and olives, they are even edible!


Eyeballs on a stick are made with a cake ball mold to get the eyeball shape. Spread on a thick layer of white frosting around the cake ball for the base eyeball color. Use an upside down LifeSaver gummy for the iris and decoration icing for the finishing details.
