Halloween is ripe for tricking. But let’s face it, what everyone really looks forward too are the treats.

These following ten might look frightfully delicious, but these Halloween nibbles are as sweet as can be…with just a little sprinkle of spooky—boo!

1. Spider web Florentines

Florentine cookies are usually celebrated for their delicate, intricate lace appearance. However, they lend the perfect spun spider web backdrop for Halloween.  In fact, these sweet, nutty cookies drizzled with just the right amount of chocolate are so simple to prepare; even your little witches and warlocks can brew up a batch in the kitchen.

3. Forked Eyeballs

Donut holes might be scary when it comes to eating them on a daily basis, but once a year for Halloween won’t have you screaming when you step on the scale. The most ingenious aspect of these easy-to-prepare and even easier-to-eat treats is that you use the same (pitch)fork to arrange them, dip them in a coating of sweet white and dark chocolate frosting, and pop them into your mouth!

6. Sweet & Scary Popcorn Balls

Sweet—definitely! Scary—not so much! But your trick or treaters will be so distracted by this chewy combination of dried raisins, and dried fruits (i.e., like cherries, dates, and figs), brown sugar and freshly popped corn that they might not even play a trick on you.
