“Raw Meat” Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are a classic for a reason and you can give them a Halloween update by adding red food coloring, vanilla extract, and red velvet cake to the butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies cereal recipe.

Spooky Nachos

Chips and dip are a must at any party and to give them a Halloween feel, carve a small pumpkin and have it spit out nachos. Make sure you make tons of dips.


Harry Potter fans will love butterbeer and you can sip it while watching all of the films. It’s super easy to make and all you need is cream soda, caramel extract, and butter extract. The whipped cream topping uses whipped cream, butterscotch topping, and powdered sugar.

Mummy Apple Pies

Apple pie is already a fall must-have and you can make these mummy ones are great for Halloween. Just make a classic apple pie and create a lattice crust pattern. Top them with eye-ball candies for the finishing, spooky touch.

Spooky Charcuterie Board

These days it seems like every holiday a new charcuterie board trend pops up and this Halloween is no different. Give your charcuterie board a Halloween spin by adding spooky things like skills, spiders, mummies, eyeballs, and pumpkins.
