  1. I love the Spider Cupcakes and Gingerbread house!! So spooky! I don’t usually have candy corn left over though.. It’s the one candy that I simply can’t wait until we are home before I open the bag!

  2. I want to try the spider cupcakes because they look so easy.

  3. I always really like the finger looking ones.

  4. Omg, they are all adorable and can’t decide which I would like to try first with my girls 😉

  5. The Mars candy bar caramel corn would probably be my first choice, if I had to pick, like somebody made me. Otherwise, they all look tasty!

  6. I just can’t with those finger things- they look so real that I couldn’t even touch them! Lol. Those cupcakes though, oh yeah, right up my alley!

  7. Great collection of scary snacks! Those fingers really creep me out!

  8. I have seen the fingers at Halloween Parties I have been to. They are so cool especially when they are made a green color.

  9. Cute ideas! I am loving those Reese’s cups cupcakes! And that frog swamp smoothie!

  10. These are some creepy and spooky treats. I love themed desserts because they really put everyone into the holiday spirit.

  11. What a great round up! All of these would be fun for a Halloween party.

  12. Hi Robin,

    While the Ten Spooky Halloween Treats and Snacks you have picked all look amazing, I think I am most excited about the MMMMonster Jell-o-Jigglers! I have never seen them before and they look awesome!

    Funny Bones look really neat too….

    So many choices! I can’t wait to get started making them all!
