Simple yet effective, these puff pastry pumpkins make for the perfect Halloween treat, and they can be whipped up in no time. All you need it one roll of puff pastry — or shortcrust pastry if you prefer — marmalade for the centre, egg yolk to wash, and a sprinkling of sugar to decorate your bake. Just popped them in the over for ten minutes at 180 degrees and you’ve got a show stopping pumpkin pastry.

For a tasty vegan option, these skullcakes couldn’t be easier to whip up. All you’ll need is a skull-shaped mold and these bad boys can be ready to go in under an hour. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and mix together 300g flour, 50g cocoa, 160g sugar, 16g yeast, 130g sunflower oil and 350g water. Then, once you’ve baked your skulls for 50 minutes, allow to cool before dunking them into some icing sugar — from there, decoration choices are up to you!

Pretzel Witch Fingers

PRETZEL WITCH FINGERS! Full recipe on alixtraeger.com Happy Halloween! ? #cooking #halloweenrecipes #halloween #cookinghacks #food #fyp #foryou

? original sound – Alix Traeger

For something a little more savoury but equally spooky, these pretzel witch fingers really pack a punch. Immersed in boiling water to form before they’re popped in the oven to bake, the doughy fingers are topped with fingernails made from food dye-painted almonds and sprinkled with coarse salt and rosemary to complete the witchy effect. A full list of ingredients and preparation method is available here.

? original sound – Ong Squad

If you’re looking for an incredibly easy Halloween activity to do with the little ones, these strawberry ghosts – or Ghostberries as one TikTok user commented — should be top of your agenda. It literally couldn’t be simple: just melt down some white chocolate, dunk the strawberries in, and add two little chocolate chips for eyes! Leave them to set in the freezer and then you’re good to go.

HALLOWEEN DESSERT COOKIE PIZZA ? You can whip up this easy halloween recipe in under 30 minutes. All you need is the following ingredients from your local grocery store: – 1 to 2 packages of premade cookie dough. (I used 1 1/2 packages) – 1 package of frosting – 1 tube of black frosting – Sprinkles + Spider to garnish DIRECTIONS: Follow baking instructions on the cookie dough package. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Gently heat up frosting in the microwave for about 30 seconds to easily pour and spread over cookie. #halloweencookie #halloweenrecipes #halloweentreats #easyrecipes

? Lean Chronicles – Rio Da Yung Og

In a time crunch but still want to impress your guests? This dessert cookie pizza can be ready in under 30 minutes and can be put together using premade ingredients to keep things extra simple. For your base, use a stick of cookie dough (Naked Bakes are a great vegan option) and bake as required, then top with frosting and decorate with black icing sugar to create a signature spider web design!
