10 Fun Halloween food ideas to make

I'm having a 'Sweets from the Crypt' Halloween round up this week while I recover from a nasty throat infection. But don't worry I'll be back later in the week with a fun giveaway.

Army of Ghosts - A cake pop that's not actually a pop. This treat has been a super popular recipe on the blog and the reason is it's so easy with a dip and drip method that pretty much anyone can master. Try it yourself - Recipe HERE.

While were on the subject of ghosts - how about these Evil Ghost sugar cookies using a Nesting doll cookie cutter. These ones are a little tad less cute and a little more evil. Recipe and instructions HERE:

OK I hear you, Ghost are so last century. Want to step up your game but still keep the process easy - Alien Brain Eating Zombie cake truffles are totally the thing. Zombie's are totes fashionable right now. Recipe HERE.

Or looking for zombies that are a little less sweet and a little more creepy. These ones on a stick use a method of dipping and then brushing on chocolate to create decaying skin. Eeeek - Recipe HERE.

Phew that zombie pop was so scary I think I need my mummy, or someone's mummy, or maybe just a cookie mummy. This Munch Mummy Cookie uses the same nesting doll cookie cutter as the evil ghost above. DIY instructions HERE.

While we're on the subject of cookies how about something a little bit mainstream like a Screaming ghoul cookie. Instructions HERE.

Or maybe a monster, this one looks a bit nervous, or maybe like he needs to pee.... Instructions HERE

Or for you traditionalists how about a cool vampire mouth cake pop - Recipe HERE

Back to the easy treats - you won't believe how simple these Double Trouble Witch Cauldron pops are. Instructions HERE.

Any time you save on those easy treats might give you a bit of time to take on this masterpiece - Monkey Brain Cake - of course doesn't everyone need a slice of this? Full Instructions HERE.
