Now that your Orangeburg, SC apartment looks the part for Halloween after our last post, it’s time to prepare some delicious Halloween-inspired treats! This week on Willington Lakes Blog, we’re sharing some fun and festive dessert recipes with a spooky flare. These treats make the perfect dessert to bring to a party — or for a night in! Before the month is over, make sure to try one of the following:

Black Poison Toffee Apples from Simply Delicious Food

Don’t be put off by their suspicious appearance, these toffee covered apples are incredibly delicious. Inspired by the poison apple from Snow White, like the Disney princess you won’t be able to resist them. What you will need: granulated sugar, water, light corn syrup, black gel food coloring, granny smith apples, and skewers or popsicle sticks.

Strawberry Ghosts from Taste of Home

Fresh, juicy strawberries dipped in white chocolate with spooky faces drawn on with melted milk chocolate look like little ghosts. Kids will absolutely love them, and the adults too. Ingredients needed: fresh strawberries, white baking chocolate, shortening, almond extract, and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. 

Pumpkin Patch Cakes from Delish

These pumpkin patch cakes are not only incredibly adorable, but they are also amazingly moist and sweet. Use mini bundt pans, chocolate cake mix, and add orange food coloring to make the cakes look like pumpkins. Add pretzel sticks for stems and green candies to look like leaves.

Frightful Fruit Kebabs by Project Denneler

A slightly healthier alternative to a sugary treat, these kebabs are made with kiwi, balls of cantaloupe, and marshmallows. Use black icing to give the fruit and marshmallows faces and and try to make them look like pumpkins, ghosts, and Frankenstein’s monster.

Do you have a go-to Halloween dessert recipe? Let our apartment community in on your secret! We hope you have a safe and happy Halloween this year — and that you get to eat all of your favorite sweets.
