The New Orange and Black
You don’t have to bake ghoulish cupcakes or serve garlicky anti-vampire snacks to throw a good Halloween bash. Instead of going the spooky route, serve a beautiful dessert dressed in the official holiday colors: orange and black. Food Network Magazine created four new recipes that are classy enough for a cocktail party but sweet enough for any little monsters in your life.
A platter full of doughnut holes is much more tempting than a bowl filled with candy. This recipe yields about five dozen chocolate-glazed bites, which is especially great if you’re planning on a full (haunted) house on the 31st.
These two-toned treats are a sure hit with fans of the classic black-and-white cookie. Even if you’re not familiar with the beloved New York bakery item, it’s hard not to love the cake-like confection split with chocolate and vanilla icing.
Forgo the apple bobbing and set out shiny candy apples. Noshing on the candied treat from a festive lollipop stick is far more fun and satisfying.
Chocolate lovers, rejoice. Food Network Magazine made over carrot cake with a fudgy chocolate frosting. Draped in a bright orange marshmallow web, it was featured on the cover of the October issue. Readers were quick to bake their own and share their creations on Instagram. We highly encourage you to do the same (using the hashtag #FNMag so the magazine editors can see your cake).
