Mickey makes one spooky mummy!
Need a cool and creepy treat to wrap up your Halloween party menu? Here’s one that features a special famous guest mummified in sweet marshmallow strips.
Popping up from his underground cupcake lair, this bug-eating Halloween Town villain tastes way sweeter than he looks.
Being the patron saint of Christmas is no small order. Just ask a certain Pumpkin King (aka Sandy Claws) who once tried the jolly old elf’s hat on for size. While Jack is now apt to leave official holiday business to the real Santa, he’s still game to take part in a cookie swap or two.
These cupcakes look just like Jack Skellington’s removable head — truly “nightmarish” indeed!
Much as he wanted it to be, Christmas did not turn out to be Jack Skellington’s forté. Still, with a bow tie that resembles a bat and a pet dog whose nose looks like a glowing Jack-o’-lantern, Jack remains king of Halloween. After all, who else do you know that can remove his own head and put it back on again none the worse for wear? Inspired by this remarkable trick, these cupcakes make a sweet, if nightmarish, Halloween treat.
Sweet, loyal, and charmingly eccentric. That’s Goofy. Until Halloween, that is, when he tosses the green fedora and dons a new look that’s Franken-ly frightful.
Make cookies that look like giant candy corn! The ultimate treat for your bag from everyone’s favorite duck.
If you go trick-or-treating in Donald Duck’s neighborhood, you’re apt to end up with a treat bag full of corn. Not your standard cracked kernels, but a more festive variety befitting the holiday: sweet frosted candy corn cookies. With a little cookie icing, you and your young masqueraders can whip up a batch just like them in no time.
Sea witch Ursula from The Little Mermaid would cringe at a menacing octopus becoming this sweet.
If there’s one undersea resident that’s well armed to stir up some Halloween mischief, it’s the unscrupulous sea witch Ursula. Well here’s a fun trick that turns the table on this menacing Octopian — a cupcake decorating technique that proves octopuses can be super sweet.
When the crewman Ragetti accompanied Jack Sparrow to Tia Dalma’s shack, he discovered the ultimate sight for sore eyes. Among the former sea goddess’ magical wares was a jar filled with eyeballs, and Ragetti hoped his chance to replace his own wooden orb was near. As fate would have it, Ragetti was destined to keep his fake peeper a while longer — until Barbossa, who had given it to Ragetti in the first place, ultimately reclaimed it as one of the “Pieces of Eight” needed to transform Tia Dalma back into Calypso. Unlike the ones in Tia Dalma’s stores, these edible candy-coated eyeballs are up for grabs. But you’ll want to act fast. They’re not likely to last long.
Contrary to outside appearances, the pirates of the Caribbean are a lot less skin than bones. Their mortal likenesses are actually cover-ups for the skeletal forms they truly are. Likewise, this bony pirate hand is not as it seems. Made from candy-coated pretzels, it’s really a sweet-and-salty Halloween treat — perfect to serve at a party or for a classroom snack.
For Snow White, being abandoned by the Evil Queen’s huntsman was truly an eye-opening experience. The startled princess spent a terrifying night under the watch of countless creepy peepers only to discover in the light of day that they belonged to kindly animals that would lead her to safety. Likewise, these eye-catching cupcakes may cause your kids to pause — but so too will they be a delightful sight.
Here’s the scoop on this frosty mini pumpkin. Made of orange sherbet and planted on cookie crumb soil, it won’t provide transportation to the ball — but it will fit the bill as a delightful dessert that’s fit for royalty.
For a sweet treat that embraces the excessive sweetness of the Halloween spirit but also takes advantage of surplus candy (or the cheap prices of Halloween candy the day after), try your hand at this Fun-Size Candy Studded Cheesecake. A rich and creamy cheesecake gets a chocolatey upgrade from coarsely chopped candy in a variety of your choosing.
