Do you detect a chill in the air? A strange, ominous tingle creeping up your back? These feelings could only mean one thing: Halloween is right around the corner.
In addition to the pumpkins, costumes, and delightful tricks that Halloween brings, there also are treats a-plenty that you and your family and friends will inevitably consume.
If you’re looking to limit the amount of conventional treats you eat this season, consider making any one—or all if you’re feeling ambitious—of these sweet Halloween recipes. They will satiate any sweet tooth.

There are plenty folks out there who find gluten, dairy, and eggs downright frightening. That’s why it’s such a good (and tasty) thing that we’ve published an amazing recipe for vegan and gluten-free “bloody” cupcakes. The cupcakes’ bloody goodness comes from wine (yum) and raspberries (double yum).
Caramel apples are one of those autumn staples that everyone loves to eat—even if they turn them into a sticky, hot mess after the fact. This caramel apple recipe is similar to its traditional counterpart, but it’s vegan. It gets its crunch from pumpkin seeds and sweet flavor from dates, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
