While my kids are getting crazy excited about Halloween costumes, I’m over here planning out clever new Halloween treats! They’re always the FUNNEST treats to make because you can be so creative with them. Some of these treats LOOK professional, and rather complicated, but if you check out the tutorials, they’re actually pretty simple, even for a novice!
Here are some of the cutest, spookiest, and most creative treats I’ve found floating around recently…
1. Monster Cake
This has to be the CUTEST Monster Cake I’ve EVER seen! Squeeee!! It looks super fancy, but it’s really just a Grass Tip (Wilton #233) and a few cake balls. Easy peasy!
2. Blackout Candied Apples

HINT: Dust on some Edible Black Glitter to these to make them extra magical! And look at these adorable Halloween-Themed Paper Straws I found!
