Some of the best parts of Halloween are all of the festive goodies. Even the food is dressed in a costume. Just by conjuring up a little culinary spell, jalapeños turn into mummies and peppers into jack-o-lanterns. Here are five creepy and creative recipes to try at your next Halloween party!

1. Creepy pumpkin and cream cheese rolls
It wouldn’t be Halloween without jack-o-lanterns. The recipe for these creepy cuties consists of a mixture of pumpkin puree, whipped cream, eggs, flour, instant yeast, dark brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and butter. Once it’s done, TikToker @myloveatfirstbite wraps the batter around a cream cheese filling made from a mixture of sugar and cream cheese. Next, she wraps a piece of string around each bun, creating eight segments. After baking, the string is removed and the buns come to life with a dark chocolate stick and facial features.

2. Cheesecake with blood and broken glass
This recipe will literally shake your perception of cheesecake. TikToker @spookiestcountdown splatters “blood” of golden syrup and red food coloring onto a plain white cheesecake. To complete the cake slaughter, glue shards of “glass” made of cooked clear candy and mints in and around the center.
3. Jalapeño Popper Mummies
This clever recipe for jalapeño poppers turns pepper into the fruit of the grave. Start by cutting the peppers from top to bottom, then scoop out the seeds. Next, roll out the crescent dough into rectangles and then use a pizza cutter to make thin, straight and even incisions between the short edges. Brush each jalapeño slice with a generous layer of cream cheese. Then take a small strip of crescent dough and wrap it diagonally downwards around the peppers. Add baking and raisins for glowing eyes.
4th Jack-o’-lantern stuffed peppers
Not only are these Bell Pepper Jack-O-Lanterns totally cute, they’re also really easy to make. First cut off the top of each pepper before removing the inside. Next, carve a face in the pepper. Then fill each pepper with a mixture of ground beef, rice, tomato paste, brown sugar, and water before topping them with grated mozzarella. Put the tops back on the peppers, then slide them in the oven for baking.
5. Cherry pie hands
Thanks to this recipe, you can shake hands while eating. After rolling out cake batter, TikToker @spookiestcountdown roughly traces a hand shape with skeletal bones for a model. Next, they brush the hand-shaped dough with egg detergent before placing a cherry pie filling in the center of the palm, making sure that the fingers are covered. Finally, they place a matching hand layer of dough over the bottom before sending it to the oven to bake.
