30 Spooky-Fun Halloween Dessert Recipes

If you want to make eerily delicious desserts for your party, you’ve come to the right place.

From Halloween cookies to ghost munchies, there’s a hair-tingling sweet for every kid, ages 9 to 99.

They may look creepy, but they won’t get booed at all! These Halloween desserts are spooktacular both in the look and flavor departments. 

Best of all, they’re super easy to make.

1. Milk Chocolate Stuffed Jack-o’-Lantern Cookies

Looking for Halloween treats that also epitomize fall? These cookie sandwiches are for you!

Rich milk chocolate between two spiced brown sugar cookies, dusted with cinnamon sugar. Yum!

Oh, and they’re shaped like Jack-o’-lanterns for that spooky yet adorable vibe.

These cookies don’t just look charming; they also taste amazing. They may not contain actual pumpkin, but they’re flavored with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

They’re perfect for Thanksgiving or Halloween!

Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

2. Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Whipping up Halloween treats for the kids is always easy. Finding Halloween desserts for adults can be a bit more challenging.

After all, most adults have more refined palates than the average 6-year-old. Luckily, these soft, pumpkin spice-infused cookies with cream cheese icing will always do the trick.

Make them for a Halloween party, cookie swap, or just because!

3. Peanut Butter Mummy Cookies 

Sweet, chocolate-covered peanut butter cookies dressed up like mummies? This Halloween dessert is to die for!

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

They’re such quick and easy treats to make, too. They call for only six basic ingredients, and decorating them could not be easier.

There are no advanced skills needed to achieve this look!

4. Trick-Or-Treat Ghost Cake Pops

If you’re feeding a bunch of kids, you can’t go wrong with Halloween cake pops.

They can be as cute or creepy as you like, and they’re the perfect little bites for little hands – or claws!

Feel free to use a boxed cake mix. And change up the colors as you like.

5. Halloween Pretzel Bites

No matter the occasion, you can never go wrong with chocolate-covered pretzels. The same is true for caramel-, yogurt-, and almond bark-covered pretzels.

They ALL taste terrific at ALL times.

You’ll cover these pretzels in vanilla almond bark and festive sprinkles and stick a melted Rolo candy between them.

They’re little bites of pretzel sandwich deliciousness.

6. Mummy Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Filled with spiced pumpkin and cream cheese, these cookies are perfect for fall. They’re also a great Halloween treat if you don’t want spooky.

They take some prep work, but the process isn’t difficult. You just have to be precise, which takes time.

And, of course, you could fill them with strawberry pie filling to make them look bloody terrific!

7. Bleeding Black Cupcakes

These black Halloween cupcakes are pretty creepy on their own.

But that blood-red center makes them just perfect for All Hallows Eve, don’t you think?

It’s just white chocolate ganache, so it’ll taste creamy and sweet. But it’ll look fantastic dripping down everyone’s chins!

8. Monster Eyeball Cookie Pops 

These monster eyeball cookie pops are the perfect balance of cute and creepy. I can stare at them for hours.

Your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and some candy eyeballs are all it takes to make this eye-popping abomination.

Pairing the cookies with an “eye”-glass of chocolate milk is also a genius idea! Just stick printed eyeballs on any glass, and you’re done!

9. Fudgy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Sometimes, Halloween party food doesn’t have to LOOK Halloweeny. It just has to taste phenomenal. These fudgy Halloween blondies definitely fit that bill.

They’re chewy and tender, full of gooey melted chocolate chunks and rich pumpkin and brown sugar flavor.

Kids love them; adults love them; you’ll love them. And if you decide not to share, I’m 100% on board.

10. Halloween Poke Cake

Also called the “melting witch poke cake,” this Halloween cake recipe is just plain fun.

It features a totally decadent homemade chocolate layer topped with rich green pudding and silky green Cool Whip. 

Add a few witch hat cookies to the top, and you’re all set! 

11. Halloween Whoopie Pies

Chocolate cake + orange frosting = fun Halloween dessert in a flash!

Whoopie pies are yummy cookie sandwiches. When you add a tasty Halloweeny filling, they’re ideal for parties.

12. Halloween Cookie Cake 

This Halloween cookie cake is not just big in size, but in flavor, too!

It’s one giant chocolate chip cookie loaded with orange-tinted vanilla frosting, Reese’s Peanut Pieces, and Rolos. It’s also oozing with chocolate syrup. 

It’s sweet, chewy, and insanely chocolatey! The Reese’s add a wonderfully sweet, salty, and peanut buttery contrast. It also gives it that Halloween feel!

It’s one of my all-time favorite Halloween cakes

13. Friday the 13th Creepy Rhubarb “Eye” Pies

I can’t get over how hideous these pies are – in a good way, of course!

They kind of remind me of the Spell Book from Hocus Pocus. That eyelid is just so compelling.

Use cherries to hold it up, and paint a touch of white chocolate underneath to help it stand out. Easy peasy.

14. Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats

Need a no-bake Halloween treat everyone will love?

Then get out your pitchfork because everyone will fight over these Frankenstein’s monster Rice Krispie treats.

15. Spooky Halloween White Chocolate Candy Bark

Chocolate bark is another fun, no-bake dessert you can easily jazz up for different holidays.

In this case, you’ll keep it simple with white chocolate. That way, you can see all the fun candies on top!

That said, you can change up the colors and toppings as you like.

16. Halloween Monster Fudge

Fudge is one of my favorite make-ahead desserts because it needs to sit for a while to set anyway.

Plus, it’s fine at room temperature for a few days, so you can make a big batch before the party.

This recipe calls for two layers and a few Halloween candies. And it couldn’t be easier to whip up.

17. Halloween Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

I love cheesecake brownies.

But these are extra dark with the most vibrant orange swirl I’ve ever seen!

You have to admit, they’ll stand out on a potluck table. So be sure to make extra!

18. Poison Caramel Apples

Caramel apples are super easy to make. Just wash and dry the apples, melt the caramel, dip, and enjoy.

But these poison apples are something else.

You’ll make a black candy coating, which involves boiling sugar syrup. That means you’ll need a candy thermometer.

But it’s not complicated, I swear! Give it a try, and you’ll see.

19. Marshmallow Spider Web Cupcakes

Technically, you can turn any cupcake into spider web cupcakes. With store-bought cupcakes, they’re a quick, easy, and fun Halloween dessert.

All you need are melted marshmallows and edible creepy crawlies.

I like chocolate cake and frosting, so the white web stands out. But make what you like best.

20. Halloween Rocky Road Slices 

I know these look like brownies, but they’re really candy-studded rocky road squares. And they’re easier to make than they look.

In fact, they’re a quick, no-bake dessert that takes less than 20 minutes to whip up. You can actually make them with as few as three ingredients.

Don’t leave off all the extras, though. They’re where the spookiness comes in.

21. Ghost Brownies

Everyone loves brownies, right?

So if you need a super quick Halloween dessert, you can’t go wrong with this adorable ghost design.

Use a box mix if you want to speed things up. And you can even use Marshmallow Creme instead of making your own.

Easy peasy.

22. Jack Skellington Cupcakes

Here’s a crazy-easy Halloween dessert that everyone will want pictures of.

Just make regular cupcakes and add a layer of white frosting. Then pipe Jack Skellington on top.

It’ll take a bit of time, but it’s so worth it!

23. Vegan Halloween Donuts

These moist and tender vegan donuts combine two autumn staples: pumpkin pie spice and sweet potato puree.

They have the most amazing flavor and would make the ultimate Halloween treat even without the decorations.

Give them a try if you’re looking for an easy Halloween dessert recipe that’s also vegan-friendly.

Tray of Halloween Cake Popsicles and Chocolate Covered Oreos

24. Halloween Cakesicles

I have to admit, I’m a little obsessed with cakesicles.

I think they look so good, no matter how you decorate them. And they’re ideal for parties! I mean just look at these colorful, eye-catching treats!

Make them for this year’s party, and I know they’ll fly off the plate.

25. Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Have you ever seen a Halloween cake more gorgeous than this one? It isn’t spooky, and it won’t give you the chills. It’s just beautiful — plain and simple.

It also tastes absolutely, jaw-droppingly incredible. It’s full of robust pumpkin spice flavor and an indulgent cream cheese filling.

26. Graveyard Pie

Most of us have heard of dirt pie, but have you ever tried graveyard pie? The concept is pretty much the same.

Only this one exchanges gummy worms for skeletal bones. You can also jazz it up with Milano cookie gravestones and candy pumpkins.

27. Halloween Marshmallow Pops

Looking for easy Halloween dessert recipes that take practically no time (or cooking) to whip up? Try these simple, colorful Halloween marshmallow pops.

They look like cake pops but are even easier to make. You’ll use marshmallows instead of cake and decorate them however you like.

It doesn’t get much simpler than that.

28. Bloody Red Velvet Cupcakes

You can’t beat these bloody red velvet cupcakes if you’re searching for party food ideas this Halloween.

As the name implies, they have all the terrific taste and texture of red velvet cupcakes. They’re just a bit spookier and much, much bloodier.

Don’t let the shards of glass fool you. These cupcakes are entirely edible. AND good till the last bite.

29. Monster Halloween Cheesecake Bars

These festive, colorful Monster Mash Halloween bars look a bit like brownie squares. They aren’t, though.

They’re rich, silky, smooth cheesecake bars with crumbly Oreo crusts.

They’re also perfect for any occasion. You just may have to adjust the decorating for different holidays.

30. Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake

When fall rolls around, the pumpkin spice people come out in droves. And this gorgeous Halloween cake is perfect for us.

Not only is it full of pumpkin spice flavor, but it’s also stunningly beautiful.

If you really want to wow your friends and party guests this Halloween or Thanksgiving, this is the cake that can help you do that.
