MOST-POPULAR Halloween Desserts

Halloween parties are so much fun! Halloween is such a great theme – from decorations to desserts. With that in mind I have listed some of our very favorite  (and MOST POPULAR) Halloween treats. We have cakes, cookies, Rice Krispie treats, and more! We also have some great Halloween drinks found HERE.

Before we get into the fun stuff, I have a few tips on how to turn any treat into fun and festive Halloween desserts!

Turning your favorite dessert into a Halloween Themed Treat is pretty easy. It’s all about colors and embellishments:

  • Colors: black, brown, orange, purple and bright green are all great Halloween choices.
  • Embellishments: add Halloween sprinkles or candies. Halloween toppers, like plastic spiders, are also great additions.
  • Serving trays: using spooky and fun Halloween themed serving trays will enhance the overall feel.

Most of these treats can be made at least a day ahead of time while others can be made even further in advance. This makes it so easy to get your party preparations done early. See the individual posts for storage info.
