In the October/November 2007 issue of Taste of Home, we showed you the photo of Scary Eyeballs. Kids will squeal with delight at the sight of these eyeball treats from Shannon Blatchley of Ludlow, Massachusetts. They'll love the peanut butter flavor, too!

These snacks will also travel well, in case you want to visit some spooky spots for Halloween. For example, you can check out these areas of North Carolina:

  • Transylvania County
  • Pumpkin Center
  • Cape Fear Township (in New Hanover County and Chatham County)

You can also head to Boneyard or Tombstone, Arizona or Frankenstein, Missouri. Even if you just stay home, these recipes will help you scare up a good time!

More Halloween Treats

Pumpkin PhotoThere's no trick to making these Halloween-flavored Sweet Jack-o'-Lanterns. By using a convenient cake mix, you can turn them out in a jiffy. Simplify them even more with canned frosting.

Cauldron PhotoThis witch's cauldron doesn't hold a spooky brew--just a Halloween snack that's frightfully fun! Our Test Kitchen formed a pot by toasting a slice of rye bread, then filled it with a creamy Cauldron Dip that's perfect with the pretzel "logs" and sweet pepper "flames" that are placed underneath.

Hats PhotoThese cute chocolate-covered Mousse-Filled Witches' Hats will magically disappear at your house. Our Test Kitchen staff had a "spooktacular" time coming up with the rich snacks, featuring sugar cones filled with a creamy homemade mousse. Prepare them for your little goblins this Halloween.
