Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always loved Halloween. From the candy to the costumes to the decor, there isn’t a part of the holiday I don’t enjoy. But now that I'm older, my trick-or-treating days are behind me, and the season comes and goes in the blink of a moody (cat) eye.

That’s why every year I make it a point to fire up my cauldron — er, oven — and bake up a treat (or twelve) for friends and family. It’s a great way to ensure that I get my adult dose of hocus pocus, while simultaneously giving me an excuse to try out a few new recipes. If you, too, find yourself craving some Halloween fun or just need to whip up a treat for a party (or seance) give these adorable mummy bites a try. They’re fun, tasty and oh-so-spooktacular!

Black Magic Cake (pictured above)

One bite of this dark chocolate cake and you're sure to fall under its decadent spell. To make the spooky mummy design, microwave 2 cups of mini marshmallows and stretch the mixture over the top of your cake to create stringy pieces. It'll look absolutely stunning and it's probably the only time you won't mind getting all tangled up.

Might we suggest serving these fluffy boo-berry muffins with a steaming cup of de-coffin-ated coffee?!

You can't have a mummy without bandages — thankfully the ones on these nutty cookies are completely delicious. They also require no extra work since you'll use leftover scraps of cookie dough to make them.

If you're pressed for time on Halloween night, fret not! You can easily make a batch of these buttery pumpkin-filled hand pies the night before or early that morning. You'll use pieces of refrigerated pie crust to make your crisscrossed layers and tart raisins to give your mummies beady eyes.

If you hear something go "bump" on Halloween night, our guess is there's probably someone downstairs grabbing another one of these adorable cakes from the kitchen. To make the professional-looking zig-zaggy layers, you'll spoon vanilla frosting into a pastry bag and pipe, pipe, pipe! It's like having your own magic wand.

These super easy treats make the perfect pre-trick-or-treating snack or ready-to-eat party appetizer. You'll use breakfast sausage and crispy puff pastry to make the golden brown bundles and drops of ketchup to give your mummy faces a little extra pizazz.

You'll have your very own "monster mash" when you put together the sticky batter for these whimsical cereal treats. Insert lollipop sticks into each one to make the perfect grab-and-go treat for any little monsters that pass by your door.
