Halloween is right around the corner, and so are the parties and all the wonderful treats that go with it. In addition to pumpkin carving and costumes, it’s the time for festive punches, pumpkin-laden snacks, and spooky desserts. From no-bake snacks to big-batch drinks, here are our 20 most popular Halloween treats.

Candy and Snacks

Sure, you’re bound to have a pile of mini candy bars leftover from trick-or-treating, but there really is no better time to try your hand at making festive homemade candies and snacks than Halloween.

If your heart skips a beat when you spot the season’s first bag of candy corn, consider going for a DIY batch this year. And if you’re looking for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, a Halloween s’mores skillet or a sweet-and-savory party mix are always a good idea.
