Halloween is looking to be a little different this year – but anyone who loves Halloween fun knows there are plenty of new ways to celebrate. In addition to themed dinners and alternatives to trick-or-treating, the Food Network Kitchen app will get those devilish gears spinning. From kid-friendly creepy-crawly desserts to more intricate creations that will spook even the bravest of hearts, our trove of on-demand classes will have you wielding magic just short of witchcraft this season.
Bake through an entire 10-class course all Hallo-week long with the Cake Boss himself. Buddy will lead you through simpler snacks like Monster Popcorn Balls and Choco Dirt Tacos to more show-stopping centerpieces like a spider-infested cake.
Dirt cups? How about a Dirt Cake? Kids will love helping you layer vanilla pudding and crushed chocolate cookie “dirt” to make this dessert. The no-bake treat can be prepped the night before – so you can focus on digging in and digging up the gummy worms on Halloween day.
Join Catherine McCord for her live class, premiering October 22 at 8|7c, on a revamp of a classic treat. Red-hued cake turns dark as night for All Hallows’ Eve – and is charged up with a smooth, intense chocolate flavor thanks to black cocoa powder.
Bite the hand that feeds you takes on a new meaning with Lasheeda Perry’s literal “hand” pies. Stuff these snacks with pizza sauce and lots of melty cheese for a flavor-bomb experience. But don’t forget the special creepy touch: almonds pressed into the “fingers” to create sharp nails.
Erin McDowell’s pretend poison apples are perfectly safe to eat – but come with a spooky twist. It’s a trick that’s really a treat! Watch her class premiere on October 23 at 4|3c.
