We’re officially in spooky season and Halloween is just a few weeks away. To get into the spirit of the holiday, it’s time to make delicious, but scary treats. These recipes are both tricks and treats and they’re perfect for your Halloween party. Here are five Halloween-inspired treats to make in October.

“Raw Meat” Rice Krispie Treats

Give Rice Krispie Treats an update with this “raw meat” version that uses mini marshmallows, butter, vanilla extract, red velvet cake mix, Rice Krispies, and red food coloring.

Spooky Nachos

This recipe couldn’t be easier to make and all you need is to carve a small pumpkin, get a bag of chips, and make some tips. Just put it all together on a tray and serve. It really is that easy!


For a Halloween drink, Harry Potter fans will love Butterbeer and it’s as easy to make as it is delicious. All you need is cream soda, caramel extract, and butter extract. For the whipped cream topping, you’ll need whipped cream, butterscotch topping, and powdered sugar.

Mummy Apple Pies

Apple pie is even better when it’s shaped like mummies and to make apple pie appropriate for Halloween, use a classic apple pie recipe and then make a lattice crust pattern and top them with eye-ball candies.

Spooky Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards are all the rage and a Halloween version features all of the classics with a spooky touch like plastic skulls, pumpkins, mummies, spiders, and eyeballs.
