Witch Finger Cookies

You won't be able to keep your hands off these creepy butter cookies — even though a dip in raspberry jam makes them look like a pile of detached fingers!

Meringue Bones

The secret to these dreadfully delicious, fruit-filled cookies is handling your meringue with care. When piping, be sure to squeeze only from the top of the bag — you don’t want to pop the air bubbles that have been incorporated into your egg whites during mixing!

Chocolate-Cinnamon Skeleton Cookies

It’s time to dig up your gingerbread person cookie cutter and disguise chocolatey cut-out cookies as friendly graveyard skeletons!

Spooky Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

Chocolate and peanut are a classic pair — just like Halloween and eight-legged critters. These cookies bring both duos together by topping freshly baked peanut butter cookies with spiders made from halved malt balls and piped chocolate.

Candy Bucket Cookies

Who says you have to put all the candy into trick-or-treaters buckets? Chopped up candy bars also make the perfect mix-in for these easy-to-make drop cookies.

Mummy Cream Horns

These puff pastry-based cream horns are shrouded in mystery. Wrapped like ancient mummies, the only thing peeking out from under their royal icing wrapping is two eyeballs — leaving us to wonder what’s inside!

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Are they cakes or are they cookies? Who cares?! One bite of these sweet, black-and-orange treats and you’ll be under their spell!

Here’s Looking at Boo Treats

Ever get the eerie feeling someone (or something) is watching you? It could be these fun Halloween treats! Mini marshmallows and chocolate candies on top of pretzel crisps make the perfect sweet-and-salty party treat!

Pecan-Caramel Spiders

Patience is key when you’re cooking the caramel for these spooky spiders — so avoid the temptation to stir the dissolved sugar while it heats to 305 degrees F. If you do, the sugar could crystallize and make your caramel grainy.

Coconut Bones

R.I.P. electric mixer! Instead of being made completely from scratch, these sugary, coconut-dusted cookies use refrigerated, pre-made pizza dough instead.

Haunted Gingerbread House

Forget monsters under the bed; this entire house is haunted! Use candy melts to add the ghastly details — white chocolate cobwebs, ominous black windows, and a fanged front door — and as the glue to keep the monster inside!

Get the Recipe: Haunted Gingerbread House

Spider Bites

A spin on the classic recipe, these scary-delicious, no-bake cookies use a combination of peanut butter and melted chocolate to turn pretzels into creepy, crawly arachnids.

Spiced Pumpkin Raisin Cookies

Like a secret potion straight from the witch’s cauldron, ground spices and creamy pumpkin puree will transform ordinary oatmeal raisin cookies — right before your eyes!
