Are you looking for some festive treats for a spooky get-together? Here are four frightening(ly delicious) recipes to wow your friends this Halloween.

Mummy Brie

Baked brie is a fall staple that serves as a perfect ooey-gooey snack for any occasion. Give your brie a festive twist by cutting puff pastry into 1-inch strips and wrapping those strips around the brie to make it look like a delicious cheesy mummy. Use mini pepperonis and sliced olives for eyes, and pop it in a 400-degree oven on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes. Follow this recipe from Delish to finesse the embalming process.

Ghost Pizza Bites

If you’re looking to bake up a ghoulish surprise, try these Halloween-inspired pizza bagels from Rao’s. You’ll need a ghost-shaped cookie cutter to slice your fresh mozzarella into spooky shapes to place on top of your sauced mini bagels. Use olives to complete the face, and bake at 350 degrees for five to seven minutes.

Monster Dipped Strawberries

If you’re wandering Pinterest for Halloween-themed treats, you’ve likely seen a slew of eyeball cake pops and pastry creations you’re terrified to recreate. This dipped strawberry recipe is much easier to execute and equally as cute. Use colored powder to make different melted chocolates to dip your strawberries into, and pipe faces onto each.

Monster Munch

Monster Munch allows you to enjoy all the Halloween treats at once, mixed into one bowl. Start with a popcorn and pretzel base, and add candy corn, M&M’s, a white chocolate drizzle, and whatever else you can find! The more the merrier. Follow this Pampered Chef recipe for details, but it’s really a kitchen-sink style recipe, so feel free to adjust to your personal taste preferences.
