5 Halloween Desserts With a Spooky Surprise Inside
What will you find when you slice into these treats?
On Halloween, the best treats are also tricks. It's not enough to serve your friends a cake that looks like an eyeball — it's gotta make them squirm a little bit when they lift their slice! These five desserts shock, awe and of course, taste delicious too.
A store-bought mold makes this jiggly dessert look a little too realistic for comfort (it is Halloween, after all!), but it's the interior layer that will really make your party guests squeal. It's just strawberries, but their slippery texture and ruby-red coloring hint at something much more corporeal.
When you sink your teeth (err, fangs?) into these surprisingly elegant cupcakes, you're greeted with a burst of raspberry jam. Think we could turn Dracula onto this as his major food group?
On a sillier note, this cake is not only filled with Halloween's most-polarizing candy but each slice looks like a giant piece of candy corn, too! That's some Inception-level baking, wouldn't you say?
OK, back to the creepy stuff. One slice into this cake (which, yes, is staring at you) reveals a gush of blood, err, rasperry jam! Your bundt pan has never had a spookier job.
Because one dessert brain just isn't enough on Halloween. This guy mimics your favorite childhood snack, but the filling is actually quite elevated — it's chocolate mousse! You won't be able to eat a cereal treat without it again (choose a less-brainy design the rest of the year — a beach ball would be cute for summer!).
