If you want to make something festive for your Halloween party, but think it's too complicated, we have the solution! Check out these six creative and totally do-able recipes!

No. 1: “Blood” Oranges

This is so fun – just hollow out two halves of an orange, and fill with liquid jello. Let it harden then slice into “blood” orange slices! Adorable!

No. 2: Spooky Pasta

This one couldn’t be easier – just dye some pre-cooked pasta black! Add some edible clay (used for decorating cakes) shaped like worms. Spooky!

No. 3: Ghostly Banana Treats

For this yummy treat, slice bananas in half, and put each half on a stick. Freeze, then dip in melted white chocolate. Add mini candy eyeballs or M&Ms for the eyes, then add some frosting in a zig-zag pattern.

No. 4: Spooky Ghoul Punch

For these treats, cut apples in half, and remove the core. Carve little faces into the outside of the apple, the soak in lemon juice so they won’t turn brown. Bake them on a baking sheet at 250 for about 1.5 hours, and they will shrink a bit to make exaggerated faces. Put cloves in the eye and nose holes, then plop into your punch (or apple cider).

Tip: For an adults-only party, spike the punch!

No. 5: Hot Halloween Cheese Ball

This yummy spicy cheddar cheeseball is shaped like a pumpkin! So fun!

No. 6: Pumpkin-Shaped Pancake

You can even do a fun Halloween treat for breakfast! Watch to learn how to make spooky and fun pumpkin-shaped pancakes! (For added Halloween cred, use a pumpkin-flavored pancake mix.)
