Bloody Delicious! Oh-So-Spooky (But Easy) Halloween Dessert Recipes

Do you like scary movies? (Bonus points if you know what horror film that line came from).

 

We certainly do, and Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. Not only does the air finally get crisp, but it’s socially acceptable to engage in all things spooky: you can hang skeletons in your front yard, carve gory faces into your pumpkins, and – for those that like to bake and cook – make those desserts as fun as they are delicious.

If you’re hosting a Halloween party this season, blow your guests away with these ‘spooktacularly’ creepy and delicious Halloween dessert recipes:

 

1.) Dracula’s Dentures

Halloween dessert recipes: Dracula's dentures

Delish

 

Dracula himself is one creepy dude, but his bloody dentures? Even worse! These stuffed cookies can be easy easy or complicated as you want. If you like making homemade cookies and rolling out the dough, grab a bag of Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chips and follow the recipe on the back (seriously, these are still the best cookies). However, if you’re in a bit of a time crunch, it’s okay to take the easy way and just buy a package of chocolate chip cookie dough from your grocery store and start slicing.

  2. Add a few drops of red food coloring into vanilla frosting and stir until smooth. Spread a thin layer of red frosting onto each cookie half.
