Last-Minute Halloween Treats!

By: Kate Andersen

Halloween is right around the corner! When you take a break from raising some hell this weekend and start craving sugar, leave the humdrum candy to the kids and try making something more creative. Like this Peanut Butter-and-Chocolate Ice Cream Cake I Scream Cakes shared on our Facebook wall. This eclectic cake shop was featured on the ice cream episode of Food(ography), owner Kerry Soraci the creative mind behind the Deer Cake we featured on back in June.

If this one's too ambitious for your taste, we've got plenty more ideas for spooky sweets.

One of our Cooking Channel colleagues lovingly bakes these creepy-cute cupcakes using Dave Lieberman's Chocolate Stout Cupcake recipe.

Get a little devilish with these spicy Red Hot Devil Macaron Lollipops from Almost Bourdain.

How about homemade jack o’lantern pastries to start your Halloween day off right? Pumpkin Poptarts are from The Family Kitchen.

Frighteningly perfect, these Halloween Truffles come complete with white and bittersweet chocolate skulls and candied walnut brains, from the twisted minds of Figs with Bri.

This Halloween Calendar Cake from A Table For Two is stunningly spooky, and a blast to put together.

Got any other ideas? We’d love to see (and taste/inhale/devour) anything you come up with this Halloween, so be sure to pass them along our way.

If you need more inspiration, take a look at our Fun and Frightful Halloween Gallery for other spooky yet tasty recipe ideas.
