Happy Little Ghost Sugar Cookies: Use your favorite slice-and-bake cookie dough to make these beginner-friendly ghost treats, which are cleverly made from tulip-shaped cookie cutters. (via Sarah's Bake Studio)
Graveyard Taco Dip: You could leave this Mexican-inspired five-layer dip for the last minute, and no one would know. While you're making the dip, bake tortilla pieces in the oven until nice and crispy, then use a food-safe marker to create spooky headstones. (via Chickabug)
Jalapeño Popper Mummies: This spicy, spooky, and irresistibly cute appetizer starts with cheese-stuffed peppers, which are wrapped in puff-pastry "bandages," baked until gooey and golden brown, then studded with candy eyes. We've made the mummy poppers and can attest to their yumminess (or should we say mummy-ness). (via The Hopeless Housewife)
Frozen "Boo"-nana Pops: You don't have to be a crafty blogger to make these chilly treats. Just skewer some bananas with popsicle sticks, coat in chocolate, and stud with chocolate-chip eyes. (via Skinnytaste)
Halloween Pretzels: Use candy melts and food coloring to turn pretzels into pumpkins, mummies, owls, and ghosts, then use your imagination to concoct some critters of your own. (via The Monday Box)
Deliciously Rotten Deviled Eggs: Food dye turns hard-boiled eggs into convincingly frightening "rotten" eggs. Don't worry: With mayo, mustard, and hot sauce in the mix, they're perfectly safe to eat. (via Parenting Chaos)
Pretzel Broomstick Bags: Need an easy, inexpensive snack for a crowd? The salty pretzels will please the sugar-averse, and the pencils will make utilitarians very happy. (via Hip2Save)
Halloween-Style Stuffed Peppers: Orange bell peppers look conveniently like jack-o'-lanterns, but what's inside of these is a lot tastier than pumpkin seeds: slow-cooked shredded chicken, Mexican rice, and cheddar cheese. (via Everyday Jenny)
