1. Pumpkin Sugar Cookies
These Pumpkin Sugar Cookies are the perfect compliment to your Halloween party dessert tray. They bring in the chocolate every Halloween party needs. Yet these Pumpkin Sugar Cookies also bring a sophisticated, not overly sweet festive touch for those seeking a respite from all the sour gummies and nougat-filled candy.
2. Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles
There's no better way to end a big meal than with the perfect bite of dessert. These no-bake Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles are the ideal dessert to wrap up your Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday dinner. They're super easy to prepare, they require no baking, and they have just a tad bit of holiday-flavored liqueur to help end your night in style!
3. Halloween Spider Cupcakes
To kick off this glorious holiday season, I've baked up these Halloween Spider Cupcakes to share with you. Yes, you! You will love them, I promise. They're chocolate cupcakes topped with chocolate ganache and the simplest of spider webs and a cute little candy spider. Now that's how to celebrate Halloween!
4. Halloween Cakesicles
I’m all about celebrating Halloween with an equal amount of spooky goodies and fun whimsical treats. These Halloween Cakesicles are super fun to put together and will bring a good amount of whimsy to any Halloween celebration.
Break out the Halloween sprinkles and candy googly eyes to add loads of character to these cake pops.
5. Halloween Cream Cheese Brownies
Take a break from all the candy and indulge in these cream cheese swirled brownies in traditional Halloween colors. These Halloween Cream Cheese Brownies come together quickly, they're super chewy and moist and will surely get you in the Halloween spirit!
6. Paleo Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Chips
Even Paleo junkies want a piece of the (pumpkin) pie this time of year (gotta love a good pun!). So I baked up this Paleo friendly Pumpkin Muffin recipe.
And, of course, added in some dairy-free chocolate chips for good measure cuz every good muffin recipe needs chocolate!
When I'm looking for a quick weekday breakfast or a snack to satisfy my late afternoon chocolate craving (who am I kidding? this can happen anytime, not just late afternoon!), this Pumpkin Muffin recipe is my go-to!
7. Classic Pumpkin Roll
Pumpkin Roll has become a staple in our house over the last few years and it's easy to see why - it pretty much rocks in all ways.
Let us count the ways that this Pumpkin Roll recipe is so good:
- It has a sweet, but not too sweet, cream cheese filling
- LOADS of powdered sugar
- Subtle Fall spices rolled into a moist cake
- Stores really well for make-ahead holiday goodies (this is the kicker - you can make it now, freeze it, and pull it out for your holiday guests, as if you made it that very day!)
8. Pumpkin Cake Donuts
These donuts are baked, not fried, and come together super quickly for a comforting seasonal treat. Subtly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and coated in a cinnamon sugar topping, you'll be making these Pumpkin Cake Donuts on repeat this Fall.
