Halloween Treats – Spooky, Easy, and Delicious Recipe

For Halloween, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Biasยฎ, I made these delicious chocolate cupcakes with a Butterfinger frosting and some spooky eyeballs, using Nestle Crunch bars for dessert to go along with a spooky Tombstone pizza.

One of our favorite times of year is Halloween. Yes, I said times, not a holiday. Because the whole entire month of October is dedicated to Halloween in our home. From making lots of Halloween treats to the Halloween decorations and Halloween parties to the culmination of actually going trick or treating on October 31st… the month is full of spooky, scary fun.

I do make a lot of Halloween treats during the month of October. A lot. Like, really, a LOT.

Recently I did a trial run with a delicious Butterfinger cupcakes recipe. I wanted to make sure they would be good before making them for a Halloween party. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Right? And I’m always looking for Halloween ideas.

So I dropped by Walmart and picked up some Tombstone pizzas and ingredients for some Halloween treats and for giving out on Halloween, like, Nestle Butterfinger, Crunch, and Nerds candy.

My family loved them, so I guess they passed the test. Check out the recipe below:

My husband said he could eat just the Butterfinger icing all by itself. It’s THAT good.

I also made these spooky eyeballs using Nestle Crunch Bars adapted from a Nestle Crunch Snowball cookie recipe I found. I just covered mine with white chocolate, so I could make them look like eyeballs, by decorating them with red gel food coloring and candies on top for the iris.

After having a spooky but delicious Tombstone pizza, we enjoyed eating our cupcakes and eyeballs. Speaking of Tombstone pizza, if you and your family are anything like mine, pizza is an easy and well-received meal. I can’t go wrong serving pizza, anytime, anywhere, as far as my husband and son go, though.

Our trial run (like I said, we do this all month long) went smoothly. Here’s how our Halloween night should go….

After I pass out some family fun-sized bars of Nestle Butterfinger, Crunch, and Nerds to our neighborhood kids, we’ll take our son out trick-or-treating, then meet up with his cousins at my mother-in-law’s house. Then it’s time to come home for our Halloween tradition of Tombstone pizza.

Tombstone pizza makes a quick, easy, and tasty meal after an evening out trick-or-treating. By the time I preheat the oven, get the pizza in and out, we have sorted through our son’s candy stash and ready to dive into the pizza. Then it will be time to eat those yummy Butterfinger cupcakes and spooky eyeballs. Bwahahahahaha!

Halloween is so much fun! We’ve already gone to one Halloween party at KCT (Knoxville Children’s Theatre). My son the Grim Reaper and I dressed as a Vampiress (minus the fangs – those things were not comfortable and kept me from talking – that just wasn’t happening).

    We love pumpkin carving, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love everything about Halloween!

    It is, Mer! I usually see whatever leftover candy my son gets trick-or-treating that he doesn’t care for and try to use them in recipes/desserts.

    Me too, Victoria. I make cake from scratch occasionally, but just don’t always have the time. This way it makes making your own icing a bit easier.

    Oh, I love the idea of a haunted dinner party! And, my pleasure!

    I love Butterfingers, to Savannah! And I can’t wait until my son is old enough to go to some serious haunted houses/mazes/tours, etc. I love stuff like that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah, I bet you could make them. If I can do it, I know anyone can. Really!

    1. Well we didn’t get too creative like that but the cupcakes were a hit!

      Thanks for sharing your post with us. Hope you’re having a great weekend!
