Mummy Brownies

Nathan Congleton / TODAY

Wrap chocolaty brownies in icing bandages to make a sweet and spooky Halloween dessert. The sugary bindings are easily made with just vanilla frosting or melted white chocolate, a piping bag fitted with a flat tip and candy eyeballs.

Haystack Creatures

Nathan Congleton / TODAY

Turn crunchy chow mein noodles into monstrous mounds of chocolate-covered sweetness. Dot the clusters with jellybean eyes to make these little creatures look like out of this world aliens or ghostly ghouls.

Candy Cobwebs

Nathan Congleton / TODAY

Fill white chocolate bark with salty pretzels or cream-stuffed cookies and top it with semisweet chocolate cobwebs for a terrifying treat. Finish off the spidery sweets with eight-legged malted milk ball arachnids.
