It’s finally here, y’all. If you’re as Halloween crazed as we are, you may have already meticulously planned every detail of your wicked weekend. You selected your costume, decided which parties to attend, and know what horror movies you’re going to watch. What about sweets? C’mon, you know you’re too old for trick-or-treating. Don’t fret. We’ve got you covered on the eerie eats.
Start your morning off with some doughnuts fit for the damned. Glazed is offering four Halloween specials (ranging in price from $2.25-$2.50), including an eyeball doughnut with cheesecake filling, a spider web doughnut with spiced chocolate custard, a pumpkin glazed doughnut, and a vanilla bean glazed doughnut with toy teeth.

If you want to sink your fangs into something a bit fancier, Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Patissier has a sinister selection of Halloween-shaped chocolates, including a $36.95 chocolate shell in the shape of pumpkin that will hold around seven or eight truffles of your choice.
Sugar Bakeshop has a villainous variety of cookies and cupcakes to satisfy your Halloween craving. Sugar cookies shaped like spider webs, black cats, and pumpkins are $2 each. Pumpkin ginger cupcakes with a cream cheese or vanilla icing are $4, and the apple spice pumpkins with caramel icing are $3.
For more Halloween-themed cookies, try the trick-or-treat bites at WildFlour Pastry. For just $1.60 per cookie, you can fill an entire plastic pumpkin pail (or pillowcase) with sugar cookies full of bits and pieces of your favorite Halloween candies: Snickers, Reese’s, M&Ms, etc.
For a sweet that is chilling in more ways than one, stop by King of Pops for any or all of their six petrifying popsicles: a candy corn pop made with vanilla; chocolate sea salt and Thai tea flavors; a cookies ‘n’ scream pop made with chocolate sea salt and chocolate chip cookies; an apple spider pop made with spiced apple cider; a Reese’s pop; and a caramel apple pop. A pack of Halloween pops contains two of each flavor and will cost you $25.
And if mom and dad need a little something post-trick-or-treating, Cocktail Club has you covered. They’re serving up a $5 creepy drink Halloween night. The D.O.A. is a play on the classic Corpse Reviver, made with vodka, Lillet Blanc, grapefruit juice, arugula syrup, and topped with concord grape juice.
