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. These Food Network Magazine recipes 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.

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.
