20+ 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.

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

Want a Halloween cookie 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.

They’re so easy that even kids can make them from start to finish!

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. 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. Giant Edible Cow Eyeballs

Is your goal to give people the heebie jeebies?

Then you have to make these squishy jello eyeballs!

You’ll need silicone molds, and I think they look better when they’re small. That way, you can have a bowl full with red jello acting as a bloody base.

6. Jack O’ Lantern Pumpkin Hand Pies

Filled with spiced pumpkin, these pies are perfect for fall.

And they’re a great little Halloween treat if you don’t want spooky.

They take a bit of time to cut out, but I’ve seen some stamp pumpkin stamps that’ll do the work for you.

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 just makes them so 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 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. Halloween Whoopie Pies

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

Whoopie pies are fun cookie sandwiches, and when you add a tasty Halloween-y 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, and oozing with chocolate syrup. It’s the stuff of dreams!

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!

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 effective.

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. Easy Halloween Candy Bark

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

In this case, you’ll go for green and orange chocolate with wiggly gummy worms and candy eyes.

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

16. Vampire Fudge

Deep black fudge with a vibrant blood-red swirl – this recipe just screams “Halloween!”

You only need three ingredients, and it’s ready in a flash.

Serve it with a few gummy teeth stuck on the side and it’ll be a hit.

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 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.

All you need is melted marshmallows and edible creep-crawlies.

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

20. Halloween Rocky Road Slices 

I know these look like brownies, but they’re really rocky road!

To make the base, you’ll melt chocolate with butter, then mix in peanuts, mini marshmallows, and chopped-up Kit Kat bars.

From there, add whatever spooky Halloween candies you want.

21. Spooky S’mores Bars

Everyone loves s’mores, right?

But we can’t all sit out at the campfire – especially in our fun Halloween costumes!

So instead, make these adorable ghost s’mores bars.

They have the same yummy taste, just none of the fire.

22. Jack Skellington Cheesecakes

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

Just make individual cheesecakes (no-bake, if you like) then pipe Jack Skellington on top.

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

23. Coffin Shaped Homemade Pop Tarts

Believe it or not, you only need three ingredients to make these coffin-shaped pop tarts.

Start with refrigerated pie crust and cut it into shape. Then fill it with jelly and bake.

The frosting “web” is cute, but you could add RIP in dark chocolate, too.

24. Blood Splatter 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!

But come on! How fun are these Halloween blood splatter cakesicles?!

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