Taking inspiration from one of Halloween’s most beloved creepy crawlies is the Black Licorice Widow Martini. Leah from Freutcake put this recipe together and we think it’s a great addition to any party. She even included a virgin version for those who can’t or don’t drink alcohol, making this drink perfect for party guests of all ages!

An apple that didn’t work out too well for a certain Disney princess could turn out to be the star of your Halloween table. Glossy and inviting, these candy apples bring a touch of dark fantasy and fairy tales to any Halloween party. Prepare this bewitching treat and watch your guests fall prey to the charm of this scrumptious dessert. Matt from Mattbites has more information on how this genius recipe was put together.

If classic Halloween movies like Dracula and The Grudge aren’t enough to keep you and your friends awake this spine-chilling season, a good helping of these Black Coffee Macarons should do the trick. Monika created these caffeinated treats all the way in Poland, and shows you how to make them on her blog, Chilitonka, where you can find an English version of the recipe towards the end of the post.
