One of the best things about Halloween is the candy and sweets. My favorite thing to do during Fall time is to throw a fabulous Halloween party and make a couple of spooky treats for my guests. Whether you’re staying in watching a horror movie with your boo or throwing a party with your friends, these desserts will definitely get you in the mood for the spooky season!

Pumpkin Ghost CookieS…

The first dessert has gained popularity on TikTok. It’s fairly simple! You’ll need one package of both the “Pumpkin Shape Sugar Cookie Dough” and “Pumpkin Cookie Dough,” or whatever dough you’d like to use!

  1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment and place the non-shaped cookie dough down, then the pumpkin-shaped cookie dough on top.
  3. Bake for 13-15 minutes, and you’re done!

Halloween Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Rods…

Another easy-to-make dessert item is these chocolate-covered pretzel rods. You can add any type of topping you would like, too! I enjoy adding M&M’s, crumbled Reese’s, caramel pieces, or sprinkles, but any topping will do. 

  1. Place your pretzel rods on a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Heat up the chocolate you’d like to use in the microwave for 1 minute. Continue to melt the chocolate in 30-second increments until it’s fully melted.
  3. Dip the pretzel rods into the chocolate and then lay them back on the tray.
  4. Now, you can sprinkle your toppings on! 
  5. Then place the tray into the fridge to set for 10 minutes.
  6. After the rods are fully chilled/solidified, enjoy!

Marshmallow Ghosts…

My final dessert is very simple and cute. These marshmallow ghosts would be great for a party! All you’ll need are marshmallows, white chocolate, small chocolate chips, food coloring, and popsicle sticks/wooden skewers. 

  1. Insert popsicle sticks or wooden skewers into marshmallows.
  2. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until it’s fully melted. (You can add food coloring to the chocolate for another color!)
  3. Dip one marshmallow at a time into the melted white chocolate.
  4. Remove excess chocolate and add the chocolate chips for the eyes. 
  5. Bonus: Add sprinkles on the head before the chocolate hardens, too!
