Halloween treats: 19 spooky goodies for trick or treaters

I’ve rounded up a compilation of Halloween treats ideas from both the Maison Cupcake archives and some friends alike. I hope you enjoy them!

First up, my recent Halloween cobweb cupcakes amongst a bigger selection I created for BabyCentre – there were 7-8 designs in this selection so do hop through and see the others in the slideshow there.

Rather than mere pumpkin cake pops I popped these little chappies onto lurid green cupcakes to make these evil pumpkin patch cupcakes

A lot of people regard Halloween to be an American invention so why not feast on another American invention, the whoopie pie:
pumpkin whoopie pies

What better witch than the green faced Wicked Witch of the West – these were my wicked witch cookies , one of my Halloween treats made especially in tribute to the West End musical ‘Wicked’

Normally I wouldn’t advocate bought tubes of squeezy icing but they worked a treat on these Halloween cookies

There’s never been a bat cuter than one with a Terry’s chocolate orange segment for ears. I’d eat a bat like this wouldn’t you?

One step up from chocolate crispies come traditional party snack marshmallow squares suitably spooked up with ghosts and cobwebs.

Not strictly Halloween treats but definitely an easy treat to dish out: White chocolate and ginger rocky road

Deep dark chocolate cupcakes with sweetened pumpkin puree topping:
Chocolate, pumpkin and peanut butter cupcakes

A fairly restrained pumpkin cinnamon cupcake – I made these for the church fete where witchy stuff and Halloween treats are not approved of!

    Amazing selection of Halloween treats. I’m very impressed with such variety. Thinking about making the pumpkin purée frosting for some cupcakes I made yesterday. Sounds delicious x
