Here is a roundup of sweet treats to make and eat. If you have one you would like to share, I would love to see it! Just post it in the comments section.

Snackpicks has a recipe here on how to make a Haunted House out of Cocoa Krispies, mini marshamallows, candy corn and frosting.

With some sugar, corn syrup, red food coloring you can make some Vampire Blood Lollipops(and 1000's of others - or share your own on Cut Out + Keep)

Use strawberry jam and strategic piping of frosting to make Blood Clot and Brain Cupcakes

My Recipes has a recipe on how to make this Candy Corn Cake at .66 cents per serving.

Selections vary depending on where you shop, but at Walmart I found the following:

If you are not up for baking but want to decorate Pillsbury has instructions on how to make these cute "black cats" out of a HoHo (or similar rolled up snack cake) black licorice and gum drops, mini M&Ms (or similar) and black decorators icing.
