With Halloween weekend looming, the clock”s a”tickin” to make your favorite Halloween desserts and treats in time for parties and get-togethers. Luckily, The Stir at CafeMom.com has put together a slideshow of 20 Favorite Halloween Recipes — from cookies, cakes, to big people drinks — to help us get a head start on the brainstorming.
Here are 4 of my favorites from the bunch:
PUMPKIN-CREAM CHEESE TRUFFLES
If the title isn”t enough, they”re covered in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed gingersnaps. My work is done here. (Originally from Whole Foods Market)
MINI PUMPKIN CAKES
These cakes from BusyMommy are absolutely adorable, and they”re actually made with little bundt cakes! The stem is a hand-molded Tootsie Roll. These would be delicious as little carrot cakes, don”t you think?
PEANUT BUTTER CANDY BAR SQUARES
This recipe from Bake or Break is a perfect way to utilize your leftover Halloween candy (if you even have leftover Halloween candy, that is). Maybe I”ll buy some extra candy this year just so I can make these bars.
THE GREAT PUMPKIN MARTINI
What Halloween treats will you be whipping up this weekend?
