The interwebs are all aflutter with adorably spooky and eerie-sistable Halloween treats and sweets, and here at, it is no different. This time of year is for sure one of our favorites, with all the ghoulish costumes, ghastly decor, and have you seen our spook-tacular Halloween cocktail roundup?! There are endless ways to celebrate Halloween, but most of them include sugar. So, I’ve come up with a selection of festive Halloween goodies that are to “die” for. If you are hosting an event, than these treats will be a hit with your guests and goblins, and if you are attending a Halloween party, than the ghost…I mean host, will be even more ecstatic to have you when you show up with any of these celebratory treats.

And speaking of parties, make sure you join our Halloween Party Pinterest Contest where you show off your Halloween spirit for a chance to win $500.
