25 Halloween Recipes

Halloween is a little over two weeks away, which means that parties, pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating will be starting even sooner! While I’ve never been very into the getting dressed up in a costume aspect of Halloween, I am definitely 100% on board with the candy!

    I go ALL OUT for Halloween foods for a big party every year! I make those Icky Intestines each time and everyone loves them! I do Nutella and then a I do a marzipan/raspberry jam version. I also roast fingerling potatoes until they are wrinkly and serve with a garlic aoli. They’re scary monster fingers.

    I made double pumpkin cut-out cookies last year…they were cut out cookies shaped like pumpkins and the actually dough was pumpkin flavored also. So good and I love to do them every year now!

    I have never liked dressing up for Halloween but I love the candy! I have all kinds of great Halloween recipes on my blog from homemade candy to cookies with Reese’s Pieces to blondies with candy corn. I also have candy corn cookies and mini pumpkin pies with marshmallow coming up. Lots of sugary treats!

    We make candy pizza —


    The best way to use up “old” candy that’s been left sitting around after Halloween — it’s so good you can even take it as a treat and share with others.
