Happy Hallow’s Eve Err’body!
Pretty soon I’ll be running around trying to find a leather jacket and some red pumps at every thrift shop in town to try and put together my last minute Halloween costume. Any guesses?!
Hint: It’s Sandy from Grease. I’m not good at this whole keeping secrets thing.
And just as much as I like flying by the seat of my skintight leather pants for a costume, the same goes for making something to bring to a party. While a box of wine and Doritos would suffice most any party I’d actually attend, I like to keep up with the Martha’s and the Betty’s of the Halloween world and work my baking magic.
So I pulled together a roundup of scary good Halloween dessert ideas from the dark depths of the under-blogging world that you can whip up just in time for a night of spooks, scares, and far too many thriller dance moves by lumberjacks and sexy kittens.
Dracula’s Dentures – The Girl Who Ate Everything
A big step up from those wax lips you used to get in your trick or treat bag. Like, were those things actually supposed to be edible? I’d have no problem sinking my teeth into a pair of Dracula’s fixodented chompers instead, even if it meant downing a head of garlic first.
Pumpkin Pie S’mores – Sinful Nutrition
What’s better than having two of the best fall desserts smashed into one portable little sammich?! Plus, it gives me more reason to stay huddled around the fire all night instead of….like actually interacting with people..and stuff.
Spider Infested Chocolate Chip Cookies – Hungry Happenings
I find these cookies both mouth watering and frightening at the same time. Is that chocolate, or one of my worst nightmares in cookie form? I’ll take my chances.
Spooky Slasher Brownies – Happy Food, Healthy Life
If I were a killer in a slasher movie, I’d go for the brownies first too. Even your paleo goblins and ghouls can enjoy this one!
Caramel Apple S’mores – Sinful Nutrition
S’more s’mores to love. Instead of bobbing for apples and norovirus this year, I’d suggest dipping your face into a pile of caramel apple s’mores instead. I can’t promise it won’t be less messy, but your immune system and taste buds will be much happier.
Creepy Chocolate Cockroach Treats – Eating Bird Food
How flippin’ disgustingly adorbs are these?! Not to mention being pretty darn healthy on a scale of raisins to rotten teeth when it comes to Halloween treats. Pass the choco-roaches my way pleazzz.
Used Band-Aid Graham Crackers – Katherine Marie
It doesn’t get much easier to add that ick factor to your Halloween spread than slapping some jam on some grahams next to a box of band-aids. Yet somehow, I can still imagine eating twelve of these, as I continually say “why am I eating a bloody band-aid?!”
…in a British accent.
Exploding Eyeball Cookies –Polka Dot Chair
Nothing will make your party go off with a boom than exploding cookies. Like hey, no these are just regular frightening eyeballs in edible form, than BAM!
Now your mouth is having it’s own goddamn monster mash. *insert menacing cackle and thunder here*
Pumpkin Dirt Pie – Sinful Nutrition
Dirt don’t hurt…when it is layered in between clouds of pumpkin spiced and everything nice pudding. And is actually cinnamon graham crackers. Actual dirt may in fact hurt going down. I’m not liable for your stupidity.
Have a Happy Halloween!
