Deviled eggs, er, I mean, deviled eyeballs are a savory fave. Red food coloring on a toothpick, a squirt of green yolk, and sliced olives are all you need to make this ocular treat.

Big cupcake eyeballs will keep an eye on things. Use red decorator's gel on a toothpick to make the bloodshot veins, then color up the leftover frosting to make up the pupils and irises.

Chocolate dipped cookies and chocolate kisses serve double duty as a flock of bats and witches hats.

Hocus pocus must be at work when a traditional Christmas butter cookie recipe transforms into a plate of Spooky Witches' Fingers. Whole almonds take the place of crunchy fingernails (real ones are so expensive these days).

Green frostings, red jams, and decorator's gel ensure that these bony fingers are dripping with crud.

Cake pops decorated to look like friendly skulls or terrifying jack-o-lanterns top off your graveyard full of treats. Edible color markers allow you to draw your designs right on the food.

Candy decorations and blood red food coloring combined with a twisted imagination are all you need to make your Halloween treats truly terrifying. Are you inspired? What ghastly concoctions can you come up with?

May your Halloween delight with terrifying treats. So loooooooooooooooooong!
