Jack o' Lantern Cake Pops by Bakerella

I thought that Bakerella’s adorable cake pops were a fitting beginning to a post about festive Halloween treats. You can check out Bakerella’s story about how these cake pops landed on the cover of the Betty Crocker magazine; you’ve probably seen the issue while waiting in line at the grocery store! There are tons of fun ways to doctor up sweets around Halloween to make them creepy and crawly and just plain spooky looking. I’ve been running across a few here and there and had some saved, and decided with only a couple of more weeks until Halloween, it would be a great time to lendΒ  you some inspiration. Whether you’re throwing a Halloween party, need to send in treats for your kids’ school party or just want to have some festive fun in the kitchen, I think you’ll find these recipes to be fun, easy and perfect for October 31st! Enjoy!

    I’ve never gotten into cakepops. They look like so much fun but I have no real place to bring them and they seem like too much work to just take pictures of!

    But those meringues are definitely on my list of things to make :).

    Great choices here, and they are cheering me up after a rough day of subbing in high school science! My girlfriends and I will be having a party next Saturday: poluck, pumpkin carving, chit chat, costumes optional…What to make, what to make, I’m liking the bloody fingers. lol Making really old fashioned brownies right now, gotta get them out of the oven. Thanks for Halloween ideas!


  22. Liliana Tommasini on October 15, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Great recipes for Halloween. Now that my girls are all grown up, they don’t trick and treat like before – they go to Halloween parties!! I think I will make the cake balls for them to bring to the party.

    Thanks for sharing these recipes.


  23. Becky on October 15, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Great list!!! Those skeleton cupcakes are fantastic!


  27. The Chocolate Priestess on October 16, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Ah, aren’t you sweet to link to all those neat ideas for Halloween. I wish we could actually give out homemade treats but our collective paranoia prevents that now it seems. It would be far less fattening and unhealthy I bet over all for our kids if we did.


  28. GreenGirl on October 16, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    What a great list, thanks


  29. Lauren on October 22, 2010 at 9:17 am

    You share some really great Halloween Recipes here. I love finding new Halloween ideas to make for my kids. It is such a fun holiday. I have such great memories as a kid that I want to make my kids Halloweens just as memorable. I work with Better Recipes so I am constantly reviewing recipes but Halloween recipes are by far my favorite because they are so creative and fun!


  30. Janice on October 28, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Halloween treats are so much fun, from funny, to spooky to gross. I work with Better Recipes and have been experimenting with gross recipes. How about some monster eyeballs? Some chocolate spiders? Check out these and more Gross Halloween Recipes
