It’s the spookiest time of the year, and for many, the most wonderful, fun time of the year! Halloween is upon us, and whether you’re staying in and watching scary movies or hosting a grand Halloween monster mash, you’ll want to add these scary-good recipes to your menu.

Dark Chocolate Halloween Cupcakes With Gold Dust Recipe

Instead of going the traditional orange-pumpkiny route, take things over to the dark side with our Dark Chocolate Halloween Cupcakes recipe. These totally Instragram-worthy black cupcakes are gilded with gold dust for that extra touch of magical glamour that we just love. But you can easily make these more kid-friendly with orange sprinkles.

French Black Macarons with White Chocolate Orange Ganache Recipe

We are fans of the gothic trend, if you couldn’t tell! So we went all out and developed this recipe for dark-as-night French macarons. If the thought of making macarons at home is more scary than a haunted house, take a deep breath and repeat after us: – yes, you can! Think of them as cookies, but way more elegant and sophisticated. We filled them with a rich white chocolate ganache tinted with orange food coloring.

Spiderweb Soup Halloween Recipe

If you’re hosting a Halloween dinner party, you’ll need something more substantial than just sugary treats, and this hearty pumpkin Spiderweb Soup fits the bill. It’s rich and delicious, and the webbing gives it that thematic look we’re looking for. Just a simple toothpick and some crème fraiche, and you’ll weave a tangled web indeed!

Chocolate Dipped Halloween Apples Recipe

Make sure to pick firm, fresh apples without any bruises.

This cake is the ultimate centerpiece – don’t be surprised if guests pose for pictures all night long! But it’s not only looks – it’s also rich and delicious, a moist chocolate cake covered in cream cheese frosting tinted with just enough food coloring to make it dark and mysterious. The adorable little “ghosts” are made with Italian meringue, which is fully cooked, making it perfectly suitable for children.
