The one night of the year when ghosts, goblins and ghoulies run freely about town is quickly approaching. And when Halloween arrives, you'll be hard-pressed to find someone who'd choose the "trick" over the "treat." But why settle for the ordinary when you can celebrate the extraordinary instead? Read on for our Halloween-themed roundup of 13 frightfully festive Halloween treats.

Halloween treats
What special goody will find its way into her Halloween bag this October 31?

1. Sweet 'n' Spicy Halloween Munch

The perfect blend of salty and sweet, this finger-friendly snack from Taste of Home is sure to do a disappearing act of its own.

2. Smiley Apples

While candy is dandy, not all Halloween treats have to be unhealthy. Pillsbury's Smiley Apples use just three ingredients (red apples, creamy peanut butter, and miniature marshmallows) to make a cute, creepy, and nutrition-packed snack guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's plate.

3. Spooky Spiders

Kids will enjoy getting their hands dirty while making these adorable edibles fashioned from cookies, chocolate chips, and black licorice.

4. Jack 'O Lantern Fruit Cups

These pint-sized party favors are adorable and tasty enough for kids to forget the fact that they're actually good for them.

5. Mummy Hot Dogs

Hungry tummies will need something solid to fuel them up for an evening of trick-or-treating fun. Set the tone with these charming Mummy Hot Dogs from Nerdy Nummy chef Rosanna Pansino.

6. Vampire Cocktail

Halloween isn't just for the under-21 set. Whether you're hosting a party or enjoying some adult time when the doorbell finally stops ringing, this frosty treat is spine-chilling in the very best way.

7. Candy Corn Ice Cream

Perhaps no candy says "Halloween" quite like these red, orange and yellow triangles. This recipe from Delish puts a sophisticated spin on a classic.

8. Shrunken Heads in Cider

Anyone can serve up cider, but only Martha Stewart can make shrunken heads stylish. Both the young and young at heart will love dipping into this dreadful drink. (Just leave out the rum when little monsters are present.)

9. Banana Mummies

Mummies have never looked so good. White chocolate and potassium-packed bananas add up to an adorably eerie edible in this recipe from Woman'sDay.

10. Halloween Popcorn Treats

Step away from the ghastly popcorn balls of days gone by and create this upscale alternative from Giada De Laurentiis instead.

11. Glowing Pumpkin Cookies

These stained glass-inspired cookies feature just a hint of pumpkin spice for a festive flair.
