Ghost S’mores Dip
Anyone who loves s’mores (and that’s pretty much everyone) will love this easy Halloween party food. Simply pour chocolate chips on the bottom of a square baking dish and cover with heavy cream. Place a single layer of marshmallow ghost Peeps on top, adding eyes and a mouth with mini chocolate chips. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the chocolate melts and the marshmallows are golden-brown. While still warm, serve with graham crackers for dipping.

Black Cat Cookies
These homemade Halloween treats are so delicious they make it lucky to have a black cat cross your path. Plus, the dough can be made and chilled in advance, ready to roll and stamp with a cat-shaped cookie cutter before the party. Melting cocoa powder with butter yields a rich consistency while adding a touch of espresso powder to the dry ingredients enhances the chocolate flavor. After baking for 10-12 minutes, cool and decorate each frightening feline with white chocolate.
