Step up your game for Halloween this year with an array of eerie, menacing treats! Ghastly (but adorable) meringue ghosts and rich chocolate cupcakes slathered with "dirt" and "slimy" (chewy, sweet) worms will appease everyones sweet-tooth. And savory, devilish delights like butternut mummy tarts, cheesy breadstick "bones," deviled egg eyeballs and black spiders, and a vat of ghoulish guacamole will keep the party going long after the sun goes down. Bwah hahaha!
