A week has passed since Halloween and spooky season has rapidly passed. If you’re like us, you’re looking for a way to extend the ghoulish fun and are wondering what to do with some of your leftover candy. Here we have some cute and ~creepy~ recipes exactly for that! We hope you enjoy our reviews and photos from our attempts and decide to make your own.

Spooky Spider Cookies
- Any kind of chocolate chip cookies, homemade or from cookie dough
- Mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
- Candy eyes
- Chocolate chips
- Bake Cookies as directed. As you pull them out of the oven, use a teaspoon to make divots in the middle of the cookie, then allow the cookies to cool completely.
- While you are waiting for your cookies to cool, place a cup of chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them in intervals of 12 seconds, stirring in between, until they are completely melted. You will use this melted chocolate to drizzle the legs onto the cookies.
- Next, place your Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the middle of the cookie, where your divot is. Place a dab of melted chocolate on the back of the candy eyes to stick them on the peanut butter cups.
- Lastly, use your melted chocolate to drizzle the spiders legs onto the cookies. Let the melted chocolate dry.
We really liked these cookies! They were pretty simple and really tasty, and were very popular among our friends. Using the premade dough made it much easier and would be a quick recipe you could throw together if you have some friends coming over.
Fall Pumpkin Treats
- 6 cups rice krispies cereal
- 40 regular size marshmallows
- 3 tbs. butter
- Orange food dye
- Green M&M’s
- Melt butter in pan over low heat, then add marshmallows. Add food dye now.
- When marshmallows are melted with food dye, take the pan off heat and add cereal. Mix thoroughly.
- Butter your hands and empty the mixture onto a non stick surface
- Form the mixture into ball-like shapes.
- Put the rolo and m&m on the top before the pumpkin is fully dried
- Place them on a tray or muffin tin and enjoy!
Review: These pumpkins were surely sticky, but they were still very delicious to Rice Krispie Treat lovers. We did not have orange food dye so we worked with what we had. Rice Krispie Treats are so fun because there are so many fun shapes you can make for every season.
- Oreo cookies
- Hershey’s Kisses
- Orange icing (prepackaged tubes are preferable)
- Yellow M&M’s
- Take an Oreo cookie and add a decent amount of orange icing to the center of the top of the cookie.
- Place a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle of the icing and gently press down creating a small ring of icing around the kiss.
- Now place a yellow M&M on the rim of icing as a finishing touch.
Review: These were super cute and by far the easiest. They required no oven or stove or any ingredients that are hard to find. As soon as the icing under the Hershey’s Kiss set, they made the perfect, cute, quick snack.
Overall, it was a really fun experience with yummy final products, despite a couple mishaps. If you are bored or want to do something with your friends, put on Monster Mash, grab some cookie dough and candy, and let spooky season live on!
