Halloween can be a tricky holiday for grownups. The spooky, gross-out party themes that are common this time of year can be fun, but may not always be suitable for the atmosphere you want to create. If you are hosting a more elegant Halloween soiree for grownups this year at your Orangeville apartment, or you are heading out to party and you want to bring something a little more refined, the Williams and McDaniel blog team is here for you. We’ve prepared a list of delicious and elegant Halloween treats to enjoy this year.
Graveyard Chicken Enchilada Dip
This subtle Graveyard Chicken Enchilada Dip is creamy, spicy and loaded with pepper jack cheese – without feeling cheesy. It is cute and elegant at the same time. The dip is topped with tortilla ‘gravestones’ and lettuce for graveyard grass. Dip into some scary, savoury good times before you hit the dessert table.
Pumpkin Patch Cakes
These mini-bundt cakes are stacked on top of each other to form the pumpkin shape. Using orange and green food colouring gives them their pumpkin colour. They are then glazed and decorated with pretzel pumpkin stems and marzipan leaves to make Pumpkin Patch Cakes – the perfect addition to any Halloween dessert table.
This black and white Spider Cake is a rich and delicious chocolate-hazelnut buttercream that will please everyone (except hardcore arachnophobes). The marble cake satisfies both chocolate and vanilla cravings and the spider web design tops it off. You can go all out and make bittersweet ganache spiders to adorn it.
Ultimate Caramel Apples
These are not your average candy apples, these are Ultimate Caramel Apples. Tart Granny Smith Apples are covered in a homemade caramel sauce and finished off with a variety of toppings, sprinkles and swizzles.
Pumpkin Cake Truffles
Nothing could be more fitting on an elegant Halloween dessert table than these chic and classy Pumpkin Cake Truffles. These delicate desserts feature spiced cream cheese frosting over moist pumpkin cake, dipped in chocolate and assorted toppings! Bite sized bits of joy.
