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 lend  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!
