A post shared by Masa/foodideas (@hibimasa) on

With the arrival of the scariest season, we've been caught in an endless daydream about all the sugary goodies that await us at the end of the month.

While Reese's pumpkins and candy corn are staples of the holiday, we've been on the hunt for spookier snacks to kick the festivities up a few notches and impress guests at our Halloween extravaganza. Scroll below to see what we found!

Poison Apples

When it comes to creating a sinister-looking Halloween treat, THESE black poison apples definitely make the list. All it takes is a little bit of food coloring to change these delicious toffee-covered fruits into their wicked counterparts. Despite their frightful appearance, you can tell your guests to have no fear, these apples are entirely poison-free!

Rotten Deviled Eggs

In general, rotten is not the word you want associated with eggs, but for Halloween we are willing to make an exception. THIS devilish recipe calls for green food dye to create the rotten appearance, and a combination of worcestershire and hot sauce for a spicy kick. These rotten deviled eggs may not look appetizing, but their delicious flavor will have all of your friends begging for another taste.

Rice Krispy Treat Brains

Zombies seem to like brains so much, why shouldn't we give them a shot, too? Plus, we'll try almost anything if it's made out of Rice Krispies Treats, and THIS recipe is just the right combination of disgusting and delicious. All you need are a few mini marshmallows, Rice Krispies, red food gel, and the mindset of a Mad Scientist—and Voila! you have a tray full of brains to serve to your party guests.

Mini Spider Pizzas

Halloween or not, spiders always give us goosebumps. That's exactly why THIS mini spider pizza recipe is the perfect bite-sized snack to liven up your party. Because the spiders are created using olives, you need a rather precise hand to create the perfect spooky pizza. But even if your spiders are a little lopsided, they are still guaranteed to scare friends away with their creepy-crawly appearance.
