Hey dads, we're here to help zhuzh up your family's Halloween this year!

We put together this list of some of our favorite spooky treats, which includes links to each recipe. Now hang on to your broomsticks, these treats are hair-raising, spine-chilling and tummy-pleasing all at the same time. Have your kids help you decide which ones to try in your house and then get in some great quality dad/child time by inviting your favorite little ghoul to help with the preparation!
