Happy (almost) Halloween! Here is my round-up of the cutest, most creative, delicious (vegan) Halloween desserts I could find on the internet!
Happy (almost) Halloween!
I know everyone is saying this, but I can’t believe it’s the end of October. It snuck up on me and I feel so unprepared. Is it just me or has this whole year been kind of… odd? Like I keep getting my dates confused, I can never seem to remember what month it is, and I keep accidentally saying 2016 instead of 2017. Does anyone else feel that, or is my memory just getting worse with age? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I swear I’m somehow an old lady at 25.
Anyways! I’ve been looking at tons of Halloween desserts to make this week, and since I won’t be able to make everything that I want to (there’s literally like 2,500 recipes), I wanted to make a list of some of my favorites to share with you guys (so you guys can make them and I can live vicariously through you)! I mean, technically I could make everything I want to (those 2,500 recipes), but that means no sleep and I get reeeally grumpy and reeeally weird when I don’t sleep. Like this week, I only slept two hours one night and when I was getting dressed the next morning, I tied multiple flannels around my waist, yelled to Mike, “HEY HONEY, HOW MANY FLANNELS IS TOO MANY FLANNELS?”, put my laptop in a plastic bag, and laid down on the floor… so yeah, I think the world is better off when I sleep.
I scoured the internet for the cutest, most creative, delicious Halloween desserts I could find, and here they are! The link to the full recipe (along with credit to the awesome blogger) is underneath the photo. Some of these recipes are already vegan, but I’ve included instructions on how to vegan-ize the ones that aren’t!
