From dressing up in scary costumes to decorating your home in eerie ways, there are so many wonderful things to enjoy during Halloween including the goodies. October is the time when your local stores, coffee shops and bakeries bring out the spooky Halloween treats.
Spooky Halloween Treats
Fearsome Halloween Cookies
Spooky Halloween treats include cookies. Sugar cookies formed into pumpkins, ghosts and witches are festive and tasty while pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are another yummy option. The combination of pumpkin and chocolate is a unique blend of tastiness, one that you’ll want to enjoy year-round.
Peculiar Pumpkin Cake
Pumpkin cake is a delectable Halloween treat that will make you want a hot chai, coffee or hot chocolate. With its tasty blend of nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin cake is as indicative of the holiday as the appearance of horror movies on Netflix.
Frightening Caramel Apples
Caramel apples are a traditional Halloween goodie. It’s a treat that combines something healthy with something delicious and gooey. Today’s caramel apples are more than just apples and caramel. You can get them with caramel and chocolate as well as covered in cookie or candy crumbles. They even come in white chocolate and cinnamon, which is likely to remind you of a mouth-watering cinnamon roll.
Petrifying Pumpkin Spice Scones
Pumpkin spice scones are a spooky Halloween treat that are more like a dessert than a breakfast item. One of the great things about Halloween is that pumpkin flavoring starts showing up everywhere. We know that pumpkin pie is the classic dessert for Thanksgiving, but October is when pumpkin spice everything shows up. Give the pumpkin spice scone a try. You’re sure to enjoy it.

Halloween cupcakes come filled as well as with candy or cookie sprinkles. You can get cupcakes decorated with ghosts, bats and pumpkins, adding a fun holiday enhancement to your dessert.
Severed Cookie Fingers
Severed cookie fingers will bring a sinister chill to your Halloween celebration. Since these are sugar cookies made to look like severed fingers, they are as delicious as they are unsettling. Set them out on a tray for your Halloween party or send them to your neighbors as a holiday treat.
Spooky Halloween Treats Make the Holiday Even Better
