So, are you ready for a fun and freaky Halloween party? Time to make these frighteningly fantastic desserts!

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

Want a Halloween treat that also epitomizes fall? These cookie sandwiches are for you!

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

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

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

They’re perfect for both Thanksgiving and Halloween!

2. Ghost Cookies 

How cute are these cookies?! The only thing shocking about them is that they only require three ingredients to make.

Yep, just three! With just some Milano cookies, white chocolate chips, and mini-chocolate chips, you can make these super sweet and adorable cookies.

Dip the cookies in melted white chocolate, add mini-chocolate chips to form the eyes and mouth, and there you have it.

Just be sure to assist the kids if the melted chocolate is too hot. 

3. Mummy Cookies 

Sweet and buttery sugar cookies dressed up like mummies? This Halloween dessert is to die for!

They’re such quick and easy treats to make, too. The sugar cookies call for only 6 basic ingredients and frosting them could not be easier.

There are no piping skills needed to achieve this look!

4. Tombstone Cookies 

These tombstone cookies are crisp, buttery, and gravely delicious. 

They’re such a breeze to make, too! You don’t even need a tombstone cookie cutter to achieve the shape. Just use a regular round cutter to form it. 

Use edible markers for the writing. Since they’re easy to work with, you can have the kids help out. Writing a simple “RIP” on the grave is great, but you can also be creative with the names. 

The article has lots of funny name ideas to choose from. I LOL’ed at “Barry Dalive” and “Izzy Dead!”

5. Spider Cookies 

Even the most arachnophobic kid won’t be scared of these spider cookies. Look how cute these big-eyed crawlers are! 

They’re made with sugar cookies topped with an Oreo cookie and decorated with frosting and black icing.

From that alone, you can already tell how tasty they are. They’re the only spiders I would happily eat. 

And they’re such a cinch to make, to boot. The sugar cookies come together in a snap, and then it’s just a matter of decorating them to achieve the look.

6. Monster Cookies

You aren’t good at baking, and you’re not artistic, but you want to impress your kids this Halloween. These monster cookies are exactly what you need. Here’s why.

First – they’re so adorable! I would gladly welcome these monsters in my home. 

Second, these cookies could not be easier to make! You’ll basically just dunk Oreo cookies in colored melted chocolate and decorate them. There is zero baking required.

Third, they are so enjoyable to dress up! Use whatever colors you want for the chocolate and sprinkles, and just have fun.

7. Candy Corn Chocolate Chip Cookies

Looking for ways to use up all that candy corn? This recipe is for you.

Fall is the season of candy corn. While this tri-colored treat is tasty, you just get way too much of it. You end up not knowing what to do with it. 

Enter candy corn chocolate chip cookies!

They’re soft, chewy, and bursting with flavor. They’re loaded with both chocolate chips and candy corn, which gives them that sweet, toffee-like flavor. 

Plus, don’t they look stunning? The color combination makes them perfect for Halloween! 

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 cookies recipe and a bunch of candy eyeballs are all it takes to make this eye-popping abomination.  

Pairing the cookies with an eye-glass (get it?) of chocolate milk is also such a genius idea! Just stick on printed eyeballs on any glass, and you’re done!

9. Bat Oreos 

Oh, the things you can make with Oreos and melted chocolate. These bat Oreos look fantastic!

Oreos are already pretty perfect as is, but coat them in melted chocolate, and you’ll get a completely different, magnificent beast altogether.

Sweet, crunchy, and chocolatey cookies – they’re every kid’s dream!   

They’re also super easy and fun to prepare. Lay out all ingredients on the table, and have the kids make them!

10. Witch Hat Cookies 

These witch hat cookies are so magical, they’re Hogwarts-worthy. They’re a must-have at a Harry Potter-themed party.

Hosting a party can be overwhelming, so what you need are easy-to-make treats that are also delicious and theme-appropriate. These cookies check all the boxes.

This recipe uses store-bought round crackers, chocolate kisses, and melted chocolate to make the most spell-bounding cookies. No baking required.

And my, look how breathtaking they are! Every Potterhead would love to have these.

11. Black Cat Cookies 

Soft, chewy, and sweet, these black cat cookies will bring nothing but good fortune.

Chocolate cookies in the shape of black cats. Could there be a more Halloween-inspired cookie than this?

They’re super tasty, too! The cookies are incredibly chocolatey. The candy corn and M&M’s give them a crunchy twist.

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, and oozing with chocolate syrup. It’s the stuff of dreams!

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

13. Dark Chocolate Halloween Chip Cookies

These cookies will have you moving to the dark side… of chocolate.

Not a fan of dark chocolate? These cookies will change your mind! The batter is flavored with rich dark chocolate and loaded with white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. 

They’re sweet, but not too sweet, and the peanut butter gives a lovely salty contrast. 

Plus, the orange chips against the almost black canvas is just gorgeous! They’re perfect for Halloween.

14. Chocolate Chip Reese’s Cup Cookies 

Out of all the many many candies in the world, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is hands down, my favorite. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is irresistible to me.

So you can just imagine my delight when I came across these cookies!

Combining the goodness of chocolate and Reese’s, these cookies are the ultimate treat. They’re soft, chewy, and oozing with chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness.

Adorn the cookies with Reeses Pieces to make them Halloween-worthy!

15. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Halloween Cookie Cake

Looking for a sweet Halloween treat for gluten-intolerant kids? Look no further!

I do not normally like oatmeal cookies. But this cookie cake is an exception.

For starters, this gigantic Halloween cookie looks amazing! It’s so cool how a vanilla frosting design can turn this cookie from simple to spooky.  

It’s also loaded with chocolate chips, which is never a bad thing. Plus, the coconut sugar adds an interesting taste to it.

Oh, and it’s gluten-free, too, with dairy-free options. Delicious, easy, and allergy-friendly — sounds perfect to me.

16. Twix Cookies 

Can’t decide between a Twix and cookies? Why not have both? These Twix cookies are incredibly chocolatey and full of caramel. They’re easy to make, to boot!

Shortbread cookies topped with caramel topped with milk chocolate? It’s one amazing layer after another!

They’re perfectly sweet and wonderfully chewy. The combination of milk chocolate and caramel is absolutely amazing.

The caramel also adds a lovely golden orange hue, making these the perfect Halloween treats!

17. Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Reese Peanut Butter Cups are tucked inside peanut butter cookies. These cookies are overloaded with peanut butter, and I think that’s terrific.

Believe it or not, the cookie base only calls for three ingredients: peanut butter, sugar, and eggs. Yup, I was surprised by this, too.

But I tried, and it worked! They’re rich, moist, and packed with flavor.

They’re also super easy to decorate! All you need are candy eyes, melted chocolate, and of course, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

18. Halloween Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are crisp on the edges and chewy in the center. They’re perfect for Halloween… and for all occasions, actually!

Packed with chocolate chips and colorful M&M’s, these cookies are moist and tender with a crunchy contrast. 

19. Halloween Sprinkle Cookies 

Soft and chewy chocolate cookies dipped with white candy melts and freckled with colorful sprinkles, these are the ultimate Halloween treat.

Guys, these cookies are ridiculously amazing. The consistency is utter perfection! They’re super soft and tender, and the candy melts and sprinkles add a nice crunch.

And they look gorgeous, to boot! The dark cookie makes the white candy melts and sprinkles pop so beautifully.

20. Boo Bites 

These boo bites are too cute!

These treats are basically shortbread cookies peppered with colorful nonpareils. The concept is simple, but the result is fantastic.

The shortbread cookies are crumbly and buttery, and the vibrant nonpareils give them that festive Halloween vibe.

21. Candy Corn Swirl Cookies

How gorgeous are these candy corn swirl cookies?! They’re definitely Insta-worthy.

It’s not just the colorful swirls that make these cookies irresistible. Their flavor and texture will also make you drool!

They’re sweet and buttery, and so incredibly soft and tender, they almost melt in your mouth. 

Not a fan of candy corn? Don’t worry, these cookies don’t have them at all! They are just called such for the lovely color combination, not the flavor. 

22. Candy Corn White Chocolate Cookies

These Halloween cookies are packed with candy corn and white chocolate chips! You’ll get a sugar rush, indeed.

The cookies are insanely soft, tender, and buttery. The candy corn and white chocolate chips make them extra sugary, which is always a hit with the kids. 

23. Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies

From a distance, these cookies really do look like they have spiders on them. But I don’t care. I’ll still eat them. I’ll eat them all. That’s how good they are.

I can eat these cookies all day, every day! The cookie itself is insanely soft and chewy. But the morsels of chocolate take them to a whole other level of awesome. 

The best part? These Halloween treats are such a snap to make. The cookies come together quickly, and the design couldn’t be easier to achieve.

To turn these chocolate morsels into spiders, just melt some more chocolate chips, pour them in a piping bag, and pipe away!

24. Pumpkin Butterscotch Haystacks

These aren’t your typical haystack cookies, folks. Combining the flavors of butterscotch, pumpkin, peanut butter, and coconut, these are the most mouthwatering haystacks you’ll ever have.

They only call for five ingredients, too, making them one of the easiest Halloween treats you can ever find.

All you need are butterscotch, peanut butter, flaked coconut, candy pumpkin, and chow mein noodles.

They’re sweet, salty, creamy, peanut buttery, coconut-y. You get all these different flavors in one crunchy bite!
