Spooky October Recipes for KidsFiendish Fruits

  • Monster Mouths – No baking is required, and there are lots of ways to put your own spin on these.
  • Webbed Berries – This could qualify as a dessert, but it’s more fruit than frosting, so I’m calling it healthy.

Demonic Desserts

  • Vampire Donuts – Find some fangs and you’re ready to enjoy!
  • Mummy Cakes – Store-bought cupcakes are ok here – the cuteness is in the icing.
  • Caramel Apple Board – This is a fun way to sneak a little fruit into the mix and not break any teeth with traditional caramel apples.
  • Boo Brownies – Decorating level: medium, but worth it – I love the candy pumpkins on these.
