Careful: these sweet, spooky desserts might bite back.
While Halloween might look different in 2020 than years prior, that's no excuse to miss out on the holiday spirit. (Pun intended.) If you're looking to indulge your sweet tooth, there's always the options of grabbing an entire bag of candy, setting aside two or these pieces for the unlikely Trick-or-Treaters, and then annihilating the entire thing across the weekend. Alternatively, for a less depressing option, here are several DIY desserts that tread that perfect line between cute, sweet, and spooky.

Anybody can buy one of those normal tubes of sugar cookie dough that has a ghost printed on it. If you really wanna get ghostly though, check out this recipe for 3D Ghost Cookies. These little ghosts look ready to jump off the cookies until you inevitably eat them and send them to whatever sugary after-afterlife awaits cookie ghosts.

Normally, these are three words that you never want to use together, especially when food is involved. This recipe is a quick, low-stress way for a dessert that's sweet, crunchy, and more-than-a-little bloody. Thankfully, it's also delicious. It's the perfect dish to distract you from thinking about how your skeleton is always damp.

Candy corn is a controversial Halloween snack, to be sure. There are those who think that it's a disgusting, chalky ordeal and those who are wrong. That said, this recipe lets you get all of the aesthetics of candy corn without having to actually eat candy corn!
Peanut Butter Fingers

Eleven months of the year, the name of this recipe is just a clunky insult for kids who are bad at little league baseball. Once the Halloween season rolls around, however, this is an easy, tasty (and spooky) way to enjoy peanut butter.
