12 Decadent Halloween Desserts to Savor
After all, sugar is pretty much the entire point of this holiday.
Chocolate Pumpkin Layer Cake
Rich flavors go so well with the fall season that it would be a shame not to use them in Halloween desserts. This dark chocolate cake is filled with a spiced pumpkin pastry cream and frosted with maple bourbon buttercream. Count us in.
This spooky cheesecake is easier to make than you might think. With a crushed Oreo crust and a traditional filling, this Halloween dessert is then topped with creamy melted chocolate. The spiderweb is done with just a bit of white chocolate and a toothpick.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes
These beautiful chocolate cupcakes are sprinkled with a dash of sea salt, but it is inside where the real magic happens. When you bite into this bad boy, you will be rewarded with a gooey caramel filling.
Red Velvet Bundt Cake Royale
If you are looking to make gory Halloween desserts, red velvet is often a no-brainer. But mix red velvet bundt cake with a deep chocolate glaze and you get something shockingly elegant and not at all creepy.
Apple Spice Cake
If your Halloween party is a celebration of all things autumnal, try this apple spice cake. Drizzle the top with loads of caramel and serve with spiked coffee for a delicious combo.
Caramel Apple Cake
Want something sweet and festive for your bridesmaid brunch? This caramel apple cake is yummy, and not so overtly dessert that you’ll feel guilty eating it before noon.
Chocolate Toffee Popcorn
Remember elementary school Halloween carnivals with sticky caramel corn? Make this easy grown-up version of that favorite nostalgic treat and top with chocolate. Although, we should warn you, it is incredibly addictive. This recipe can turn a cheat day into a cheat week.
Halloween Candy Bark
If there is one thing that we miss about being a kid, it’s definitely the trick-or-treat swag. Make this candy bark for a decadent addition to your Halloween dessert table.
Homemade Butterfinger Bites
Everyone has their favorite Halloween candy (and rarely is the answer Tootsie Rolls, btw). If you love Butterfingers, then make these bite-size confections with orange frosting drizzle.
Ouija Board Sugar Cookies
We’re not going to lie to you, these Ouija board cookies are just as difficult to make as they appear. Unless you are a seasoned cookie decorator, you may just want to leave this to your local bakery. But seriously, how amazing are they?!
Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies
These cookies, however, are super simple. A soft sugar cookie with peanut butter, decorate them with sprinkles and dusting sugar in your Halloween reception’s color palette.
Halloween Monster Cupcakes
Halloween wedding with a fun side? Or perhaps you want something more child-friendly for the kids’ table? These adorable monster cupcakes are really precious and not at all ghoulish.
