Nothing screams holiday fun like tasty treats for all to eat! Halloween snacks and desserts are always so much fun to make (and eat), so here are some of my favorite Halloween themed treats!

Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devil's Food Cake Mix
3 Eggs
1 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of Oil
Betty Crocker Whipped Icing in "Fluffy White"
Black Food Coloring (or Red, Blue, and Green Food Coloring)
Wilton Halloween Bat Cupcake Decorating Set

Pre heat the oven to 350°. While it's preheating, combine the cake mix, eggs, water, and oil into a large bowl and whisk until mix together completely. Place the cupcake liners provided in the Wilton Cupcake Decorating set in a cupcake pan and pour the mix into it. Bake for about 15-20 minutes.

While the cupcakes are baking, you can start on the icing. Scoop the Betty Crocker Whipped Icing into a bowl, add the food coloring, and stir. If you don't have black food coloring, you can mix red, blue, and green coloring which will make a dark gray. I opted for that option.

Once the cupcakes are done baking and have cooled for about 15 minutes, spread the icing onto the cupcake and add the wings and eyes (provided by Wilton's Halloween Bat Cupcake Decorating Set) to make a cute, yummy bat cupcake!

Pillsbury Crescent Original Dough
Oscar Mayer Classic Hot Dogs

Start off by preheating the oven to 350°. While you wait for the oven to preheat, use a knife and slice the dough into long, thin strips. Wrap the strips around the hot dog to make it look like a mummy and stick it in the oven for 14-17 minutes or until golden brown. Using the mustard and ketchup, put dots onto the hot dog to make eyes!

Kellogg's Rice Krispy Treats (you can also make homemade ones)
Wilton's Candy Melts in "white"
Wilton's Halloween Sprinkles
Cardboard Straws

First, you need to stick the straws into the Rice Krispy Treats and stick them in the freezer. While they are in the freezer, it's time to transform the Candy Melts into an icing.

To melt the candies, you need to pour the bag into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on the defrost setting for one minute. Stir thoroughly and continue to microwave and stir at 30 second intervals. Once they are somewhat melted, add 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil to make it thinner and continue the 30 second intervals.

After the icing is made, apply it to the frozen Rice Krispy Treats with a knife and add sprinkles. Stick the completely frosted treats back in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then enjoy!

These fun Halloween themed treats are super easy and tasty. Give them a try this Halloween season!
