From savory to sweet, silly to spooky, here are some fun recipes to try for Halloween from MKES and others I’ve found while hunting around for new ideas.

Sweet & Silly

Ghost cookies. These “cookies” are really just melted white chocolate that your kids can make into ghost shapes. This recipe is fast & fun and a Halloween tradition around our house.

Homemade tootsie rolls. Check out Baking and Boys! recipe for from-scratch tootsie rolls. I’m going to have to try these soon.

Orange Jack ‘o Lanterns. Forget carving the pumpkin, have an orange as a stand-in. Thanks to MarthaandMe for passing along the recipe.

Sweet & Spooky

Ghost brownies. Help your kids create a ghostly graveyard using a brownie, white chocolate ghosts and chocolate-dipped cracker tombstones.

Creepy creature cake. I love any excuse to make a bundt cake–but here you create a freaky scene using the cake as the base. Love it.

Pumpkin seed toffee. Okay, so this isn’t spooky. But for a more grown-up candy, try this mix of roasted pumpkin seeds, ginger, cayenne, all wrapped up in toffee that’s topped with chocolate.

Savory & scary

Meatball mice. These little critters almost look like mice have invaded your spaghetti plate. These are easy to make–and the ham tails add a nice touch.

Chicken leg pot pie. You can thank Roald Dahl of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fame for this revolting recipe and more!
