October Post: Halloween Food!

So this week's October Post theme has been food and today we're looking at some Halloween treats.

Owl Oreo Cupcakes

I found this wonderful picture on Pinterest, but when I followed the link there was no recipe. That being said, these cute little owls seem to be fairly self explanatory:

1) Make your favorite cupcake recipe and frost your cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
2) Disassemble some oreo cookies, keeping all of the ends with the frosting still attached set aside for the eyes. (Save the non-frosted sides to make an oreo pie crust.)
3) Place your frosted oreo halves on the frosted cupcakes to make the owl eyes. Put reese's pieces or even candy dots on the white frosting for pupils.
4) Take the orange reese's pieces and stick the in the crack between the oreos for the beak.

Voila! Owl Oreo Cupcakes.

Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

The Kathie Cooks blog posted the recipe for these adorable cookies that depict one of the most iconic Halloween candy treats: candy corn.

This recipe is really simple and comes down to dying your dough and layering it in a baking dish so that you can cut your cookies into neat triangles. The sugar cookie dough recipe can be the one you prefer, but I like Kathie's idea of adding some lemon juice and lemon zest into the dough for a cookie full of flavor.

For the last set of recipe's I have to send you to a blog that is swiftly becoming one of my favorites: The Pastry Affair. The author spent a part of her summer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida and brought some of the book treats brought to life home with her. She spent sometime experimenting and came up with some great recipes for Honeyduke's Treats, Cauldron Cakes, Butterbeer, and Butterbeer Cupcakes.

Check out these sweet treats and whip up a few for yourself.

What are your favorite Halloween treats? Do you think you'll try any of these recipes?
