Dirt Cake

Serve this cold pudding dessert in a flowerpot with a garden trowel for a realistic touch, and finish with gummy worms emerging from the sandwich cookie "dirt." If the 800-plus calories per serving are too much for your Halloween party, try substituting lower-calorie cream cheese, whipped cream, and sandwich cookies.

Spooky Halloween Eyeballs

These white chocolate-covered peanut butter balls take more than three hours to make, but the result is sure to impress. Make a spooky bloodshot eyeball with some red food coloring for added effect. Although peanut butter is high in fat, its heart-healthy benefits should not deter people from eating it.

Chocolate Monster Halloween Cookies

You don't have to be a piping bag artist to make these delicious cookies look amazing. Even better, they can be made in as little as 30 minutes, making them ideal for last-minute baking. The eyes, along with the purple and orange vanilla buttercream filling, take the spotlight here. Without either of these, you're left with simple but insanely delicious chocolate sandwich cookies with a vanilla buttercream center. The candy eyes and buttercream completely transform the cake.

Ghost Cookies

How cute are these cookies?! The only surprise is that they are made with only three ingredients. Yes, just three. To make these super sweet cookies, you only need Milano cookies, white chocolate chips, and mini-chocolate chips. They're so easy to make that children can do it from beginning to end. Dip the cookies in melted white chocolate, then add mini-chocolate chips to the eyes and mouth to make them look like they're talking. Just remember to assist the children if the melted chocolate becomes too hot.

Halloween Punch

Do you need a drink? Make a scary-looking concoction by punching the zombie's hands. You must prepare a day ahead of time.

Float the gloves in a bowl of red fruit punch to make them look like zombie's hands!
