All Hallows' Eve is slowly approaching, and you know what that means: shopping for overpriced costumes you'll only wear once, decorating your home and yard with DIY Pinterest projects that look nothing like the pictures, and baking all of the most delicious themed treats. If you're looking for the perfect dessert for you, then you need to try one of these Halloween recipes based on your zodiac sign. Whether you're an adventurous Aries or a health nut Virgo, I've got just what you've been looking for. And one of the best parts is these are recipes even the most culinary-challenged gal (*ahem* me!) can pull off. I call that a win.
If you love Halloween, odds are you've been waiting for this October since... last November. It comes but once a year, although some of us are known to keep our decorations up indefinitely and bake a delicious batch of pumpkin spice cupcakes whenever we darn well feel like it. And even though people scoff at our Halloween obsession, even though stores are already putting up Christmas decorations (darn you!), right now, we will bake Halloween treats. And we will bake them with reckless abandon.
Here's what you should be whipping up in the kitchen, based on your zodiac sign, with help from food bloggers who know their spooky stuff.
You need a little bit of everything, Gemini, or else you get bored. This Halloween bark from Deliciously Yum has candy corn. It has marshmallows. It has peanuts. You'll never get sick of this.
You're a daring one, Aries. You're the only sign of the zodiac that can handle these BruCrew Life peanut butter zombie eyeballs. Go ahead — dig in.
You're the most intuitive sign of the zodiac, Pisces — always in tune with that sixth sense and able to pick up on things others cannot. These adorable ghost pretzels from the creative minds at Dessert Now Dinner Later were made for you.
Taurus has a major sweet tooth and loves rich, decadent desserts. There's only one way to go, here: cheesecake from 3 Pastries a Day.
You know how to take charge and get everyone's attention, Leo, just like these too-cool-for-words monster doughnuts from A Spicy Perspective. Side bar: you get to play with the vampire teeth after you eat one. Bonus!
Virgo likes healthy food; and you know what they say: an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Try these creepy crawly caramel apples from My Baking Addiction.
You love the outdoors and all it has to offer — even those nasty, eight-legged creatures. These spider peanut butter cookies from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen are just what you need.
You're rather traditional, Capricorn; and there's nothing more traditional to Halloween than pumpkin spice. You'll love Bake Love Give's boo-rific pumpkin spice Milano ghosts.
You have a hard time sleeping at night, Aquarius, just like vampires. What better dessert for a night owl like you than these cutesy bat cupcakes? Bakerella knows what's up.
You're the most persuasive of the zodiac, Cancer. In fact, you can get anyone to do just about anything. This Halloween, cast your spell on family and friends with some help from Cookies & Cups and these cauldron cupcakes.
You're not happy unless those around you are happy, Libra. A big batch of Halloween muddy buddies to share with all your friends and family is just what you need. Get the recipe at Something Swanky.
You like working with your hands, Scorpio. These chocolate fingers from The Simple Sweet Life only seemed fitting.
