Halloween is just a few days away! Are you ready for the kiddos who are all-prepared in their scariest costumes for the much-awaited trick-or-treat season? Put your worries to rest—here are spooky but yummy treats that you can whip up easily!
1. Ghost Oreos. Sandwich the end of the stick between the Oreo coookies and dip on melted white chocolate until completely covered. Chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Decorate the pops using melted chocolate to make skull faces. Chill again in the refrigerator until children come knocking on your door! Tie a black ribbon around the stick before handing out each.
2. Bloody Cups. Pour melted chocolate on cupcake liners until half-full. Chill in the fridge until it hardens. Once chocolate cups are nice and firm, place a generous amount of strawberry jam on top, then add another layer of melted chocolate. Chill until ready to consume.

4. Chocolate Witch Hat. Dip the end of a wafer cone on melted chocolate and stick to a cookie side. Set aside for a while until it hardens, then dip the whole treat in chocolate or drizzle until fully covered. Place M&Ms on the hats for design, and chill in the refrigerator.
5. Popcorn Hands. Put candy corn inside each finger of a food handler glove, then fill with salted popcorn. Tie the the ends to seal. Hand to the kids (pun intended).

6. Spooky Brownies. Bake a batch of brownies or get store-bought ones and slice into one-inch cubes.

Chill in the fridge until it's set, then draw a spooky face using melted chocolate.
