5 Must-Try Homemade Halloween Treats

There's so much more to Halloween than the candy.  I'm not really sure what that is, but there has to be. That's right; there is the getting dressed up in really cool costumes, going to parties, trick-or-treating, and of course making super yummy treats for special goblins.

Here are five adorable ideas to try this year.  Taking everyday food and making it into something else is kind of like being a super hero for a night.

Lisa of LilSugar came up with a cute version of Martha Stewart's Witch Cupcakes.

Which treat are you going to try first?  Please help me decide which to make for an upcoming party.  I need to bring a dessert and am hopeless due to all the choices for Halloween.

Or, do you have a favorite crowd pleaser for adults and the children within us?
