And if a holiday bash is on your agenda, don’t be scared of party-planning: we’ve got your list of six simple but scary-good recipes that will turn your Halloween bash into a sure thriller:
Halloween Sugar Cookies
Frosted sugar cookies are arguably the best thing about any holiday — and Halloween’s no different. The Kitchen Witch says her vegan version is “perfect” — so make a batch, cut ‘em into creepy shapes, and get to decorating.
3-Ingredient Apple Bites
These creepy-meets-cool snacks are the easiest thing you’ll make all year. Using three ingredients, you’ll turn innocuous apple slices into spine-tingling vampire mouths. *shudder* Be honest — freaking your guests out is half the fun.
Pumpkin Spice Crispy Treats
The Spooky Vegan put a special twist on the classic rice square. Her version uses Dandies’ pumpkin spice marshmallows and the final products take on a festive shape — complete with licorice stem.
Stuffed Mushroom Eyeballs
With all these sweets, don’t forget the savory foodstuffs. These deadly delicious ‘shrooms are a ghoulish addition to your snack spread. Dreamed up by Vegan Yack Attack, they’re also a breeze to make.
Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts
These may look elaborate and time-consuming, but have no fear: they only require four ingredients and about a half hour to prepare. In other words, they’re perfect for impressing your party guests. And, according to Recipe Girl, you can even freeze them and heat them up later — ideal for pre-festivity prep.
Caramel isn’t always vegan–friendly, but Blender Babes’ version is. Using maple syrup, coconut sugar and coconut milk, you can re-create the iconic caramel apple of Halloween tradition.
