Halloween parties call for lots of delicious goodies for trick or treaters to eat. It is a wonderful time for adults to indulge in their sweet tooth as well. Thus, the start of the holiday season is a great chance for foodies to flex their baking muscles. With a little help from Sur La Table, and these promo codes, we have assembled 5 ideas for the best haunted house or Halloween party on the block. Keep in mind that most of these homemade treats are better for sharing with friends, family, classmates, guests, or co-workers, and not passing out to a stranger’s children without their permission.
The Chicago Metallic® Halloween Press Cookie Cutter Set is a fun-filled way to bake cookies shaped like spiders, pumpkins, mummies, and ghosts. Bake the cookies plain to view the spooky messages or add frosting and sprinkles. Just as entertaining as making the fresh baked cookies is serving them at your monster mash, or enjoying with a cup of hot cider. ($20 for 8)
It isn’t a party without a cake, and it isn’t Halloween without this Spider Web Cake Stand from Sur La Table. The metal cake stand looks like a spider web, complete with little spiders dangling from the sides. Also pictured are cupcakes decorated with the Meri Meri Trick or Treat Bake Cup Set. Make it a spider theme with a Cobweb Table Runner and Black Linen Napkins. (Cake stand $20, Cup set $13)
The Fred Skull Ice Mold is the perfect form of ice cube to float in the 10-Piece Punch Bowl Set with your beverage of choice. It will look like the souls of hundreds of tiny dead sailors are swirling around with every cup you serve. They are also ideal for cooling down steaming hot cups of mulled apple cider or even Halloween Orange Hot Chocolate from Sur La Table. (Mold $10, Bowl set $49.95)
In the morning after, relax after an exciting evening over some Stonewall Kitchen Pumpkin Pancakes or Waffles. If you prefer the Stonewall Kitchen Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix is also delicious and seasonal. Still want more pumpkin spice? Spread it with the Stonewall Kitchen® Maple Pumpkin Butter. (Pancake mix $9.95/16 oz tin)
Everyone knows that the best parties include gift bags. There is no way you are going to eat all of those leftover treats by yourself. Pack them away as party favors in a Wilton® Pumpkin Treat Box. The to-go boxes resemble a smiling Jack O’Lantern that is also good for bake sales or bringing Halloween candies, cookies, and goodies to work or school. ($6 for 3)
