10 Tricks and Treats to Make for Halloween

Nicole Austin

In full disclosure - I absolutely love Halloween! It is my favorite holiday and it's also the perfect time of the year for a horror lover such as myself.

The dark gloomy skies, the creepy new flicks that come out, the costumes and mayhem, and of course, the treats that I can’t help but crave year-round.

As the days grow shorter and the air crisper, it’s nice to be in the kitchen by a warm stove, and even better when you can enjoy it with family and friends.

This is the time of year when I truly love nothing better than to whip up a tasty snack or dessert and curl up under blankets with the kids to watch a movie.

In celebration of spooky season, here are some of our best Halloween recipes so you can try your hand making a few uniqeu tricks and treats this year!

1. Butterfinger Cupcakes Recipe

If my kids offer me a sampling of their prized Halloween candy stash, one of the first things I’ll go to grab is the bright yellow and blue wrapper of a Butterfinger! Our delicious Butterfinger cupcakes are a true treat pairing the beloved candy bar with thickly iced cupcakes that will leave you wanting a second...and a third.
