30 Fabulous Halloween Treats

As I’m sitting here enjoying a mini marathon of The Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror specials, there is no question that Halloween is upon us! It is my second favorite holiday (you just can’t beat Christmas) and I look forward to it every year. Unfortunately (and fortunately!), I’m quite busy preparing for the arrival of our bundle of joy – we even have family members betting on a Halloween baby! I’ve got some yummy surprises up my sleeve, but they are simpler recipes for sure. So, I wanted to recap some of the fun things I’ve made over the past couple years – and share some of my new favorites from other amazing bloggers!

I love all your Fall and Halloween treats! I am sitting on the edge of my seat every year to see what you will come up with next!

Thanks for adding my S’ Mores!


6 Jennifer October 7, 2013 at 9:19 am

Thanks, Lisa! Unfortunately, no cookies are planned for this year – between the gestational diabetes and getting ready for baby in general, I don’t feel like I have time…plus, no taste testing!? The horror! 🙂 But, I have a couple fun ideas coming up!

I thought my daughter would LOVE Hocus Pocus when she was younger….and now at 20, she still thinks this movie is the scariest thing ever! It cracks me up…Bette Midler’s lips!!!! What’s scary? The spell book is pure magic!


8 Jennifer October 7, 2013 at 10:28 am

Haha, oh no! I was watching the Nightmare on Elm Street movies when I was pretty young (I wanted to watch them since my stepsister was watching them!). So, I never found it too spooky 😉


9 Michelle @ MakeMeCake.Me October 7, 2013 at 10:51 am

I’m not surprised Halloween is one of your fave holidays because you do all forms of a Halloween treat (spooky, gory, kitschy) so well! Thanks for the shout and thinking of your soon-to-be-gal! 🙂


10 Jennifer October 8, 2013 at 6:14 pm

Your girly skeleton cookies are so adorable! 🙂


11 Hani/Haniela's October 7, 2013 at 11:31 am

You have so many cool ideas Jennifer!
Sorry to hear about gestational diabetes that must be hard not to bake and stuff. I hope you and the baby are doing well. Hugs for sharing my spider cupcakes.


12 Jennifer October 8, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Thanks, Hani! The GD has been a tough adjustment, but it is only temporary 🙂


13 Mike @ Semi Sweet October 7, 2013 at 11:51 am

I saw Hocus Pocus for the very first time this weekend. I can’t believe I missed out seeing it when I was a kid. Love your spellbook cookies. Your drain cookies were another favorite of mine, as well as your super creepy AHS cookies. Great round-up!

Thanks so much for include my adding-a-ghost tutorial!


14 Jennifer October 8, 2013 at 7:33 pm

Hocus Pocus is the BEST. No question!

And, I loved that ghost tutorial – they are so cute!
