Let’s take a look at what’s cooking around the interwebs in the realm of sweet and spooky treats.

First up, fun and easy-to-make cake pops! The Pioneer Woman shows us how easy these are to make.  She also suggests using a small ice cream scooper to get the cake ball sizes just right.

Pumpkin Pie Bites

Pumpkin pie bites from the talented Bakerella .  Dress these little bites of pie as jack-o-lanterns and you have yourself a lovely and Halloween-worthy dessert.  To get these little pumpkins to just the right size, use a mini muffin/cupcake pan.

Also easy to make with two simple ingredients: candy corn and heavy cream, this mousse is perfect for coffee shop treats or after dinner delights. To get this recipe right, use a solid counter top mixer to make the whipped cream and spoon the finished mousse into ramekins for service.

Spooky Candy Apple

Last, for a truly inspired Halloween confection… spooky candy apples!  How cool is that?

For this recipe, a candy thermometer is absolutely crucial.  When the boiled sugar is malleable and ready to spin, it creates a wormy, yet beautiful finishing touch for the perfect presentation on any plate.

Happy (almost) Halloween Everyone!
