Halloween is all about fun, so the first thing I think of is all the fun Halloween & Fall desserts I can bake. Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorites.
1. Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes
My bestie Laura introduced me to this recipe. They are AMAZING! If you like pumpkin, these are definitely for you!
I understand this isn’t really a dessert that is homemade, but its super cute and you COULD use homemade donuts if you wanted. I think these would be super fun to send with your kids to school or even to surprise your coworkers with. Imagine their surprise when they opened a seemingly innocent box of cupcakes and found these monsters inside! All you need to pull this off is some chocolate chips and plastic vampire teeth.
I dare you not to fall in love with these! You could use store bought cookies and ice cream, or you could make your own (cookies and/or ice cream). I think cookies and ice cream are a perfect pair and this combination is great for fall. Here in Florida its usually still hot on Halloween, so these would be a perfect post-trick or treating snack.
I made these for Thanksgiving about 5 years ago and my grandfather loves them so much that I have had to make them every year since. They are pretty simple to make and really tasty! They are perfect for breakfast or as a sweet bread to have with a meal.
Please don’t let the fact that these are sweet potato in them deter you from trying this recipe. They are AMAZING! I didn’t tell my family what was in them because I was worried they wouldn’t try them. Most people think that the secret ingredient is pumpkin, so its fun to see their surprise when I tell them that its sweet potatoes.
*One tip, don’t put these in the refrigerator after you make them. The chocolate in the center will get too hard.
I hope you found at least one new recipe that you might consider trying this fall. Next week’s Friday Five will be all about Halloween Cocktails.
