These Halloween Recipes Are Literally Eye Candy

Hadley Mendelsohn

While we should keep healthy Halloween snacks around the house this time of the year, more often than not we succumb to our sweet tooth and indulge a little (or a lot)—'tis the season, right? Besides, Halloween is a special time and it only happens once a year, so we say live a little. Hands up: Who's been caught pocketing their kids' candy post–trick-or-treating? It's sacrilege, we know, but it's just too good to resist. But we have a better alternative. If you're looking for a tasty dessert (that also functions as eye candy), these mouthwatering recipes from Rosie Daykin's newest cookbook, Butter Celebrates, are exactly what you need.

Whether you're hosting a party or attending one, scatter these ghost meringues on a platter, give the gift of a spicy graham-coated caramel apple, or pile up a basket of doughnuts flavored with everyone's favorite spice of the season (pumpkin, duh). Tasty treats that double as tabletop décor? Yes, please. Ahead, Daykin takes us through each recipe so you can whip them up in the kitchen today. We even included all your bakeware necessities to treat your spooky do-gooders.
