Given all the sugary treats which fill our diets during the Halloween season, it’s nice to throw some nutritious stuff into the mix. So why not try making a tasty “Orange Jack-o-Lantern” from American Cookery Volume 24 for your next dessert or snack? Elyse Salpeter also has a wide selection of healthy Halloween treat suggestions.
But if you want the more traditional sweet stuff, I still have you covered. The Country Gentleman, Volume 81 has a recipe for “Night-Owl Cakes,” Blue-Eyed Bakers has some tasty “Petite Pumpkin Spice Donuts” while Home For Halloween has “Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats.” I also found the official recipe for “Carol’s Cookies” from The Walking Dead on Twitter and Slash & Dine has some amazing “Edible Alien Eggs.”
Caramel and candy apples are a Halloween tradition, but Let’s Get Thrifty found a way to make them even creepier with their edible recreation of “Snow White’s Poison Apple.” Those looking for a way to enhance the treats they will be handing on Halloween will appreciate Family Fresh Meals’ “Spooky Spider Suckers.”
The Google Books preview for Crazy about Cupcakes by Krystina Castella shows how to make “Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes” and “Skeleton Cupcakes” while Better Homes and Gardens’ Halloween Tricks & Treats brings us the “Pizza-pede.” For those who prefer not to bake, YouTube has some tasty “Jello Eyes.”
Those looking for more adult tastes need to read Delish.com’s “Adult Halloween Party Ideas” and Pumpkinrot’s discovery of “Halloween Recipes For Adults (Or Brave Kids).” Pumpkinrot has a vast assortment of other recipes, including “Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake” and “7 Layer Candy Bar Dip.”
