Favorite Halloween Desserts

Halloween parties are so much fun! Halloween is a great theme – from decorations to desserts. With that in mind, I’ve listed some of our very favorite (and most popular) Halloween treats. We have cakes, cookies, rice crackers and more! We also found some great Halloween drinks here.

Before we get into the fun stuff, I have a little bit about how Turn any treat into a fun and festive Halloween dessert!

It’s super easy to turn your favorite dessert into a Halloween-themed treat. It’s all about color and trim:

  • color: Black, brown, orange, purple and bright green are all great options for Halloween.
  • decoration: Add Halloween sprinkles or candy. Halloween hats, such as plastic spiders, are also great additions.
  • Serving Tray: Using a spooky and fun Halloween-themed tray will enhance the overall feel.

Most of these snacks can be made at least a day in advance, while others can be made in advance. This makes it so easy to get party prep done early. See individual posts for storage information.
