Why play tricks when you can get amazing treats this Halloween? ‘Tis the season for fun-sized chocolate bars, stretchy gummy treats and red braids of licorice. But, when you treat yourself, don’t settle for the same old Smarties and mini Snickers that you’re passing out to the neighbor kids. Treat yourself to our picks of sweet, salty, gruesome and fun gourmet treats for Halloween. From eyeball cupcakes to fizzing fangs, your Halloween isn’t complete without a few of these seasonal treats!
Two maple-inspired suggestions below (excerpt):
4. Pumpkin Chai Cronut With Maple Sugar ($5): Welcome to the birthplace of the Cronut, yes, that croissant-donut hybrid that started an international craze. Offering a unique flavor each month, Dominique Ansel’s Bakery is worth camping out in front of (for reals, the line starts two hours before opening and quantities are limited). Can’t get to the bakery? You can pre-order online here. Once you get your hands on a Cronut, eat immediately!
11. Maple Cube ($17): This is a solid cube of pure maple syrup. Wielding your microplane grater (the preferred tool for handling maple cubes, duh), grate maple onto anything. We’re talking oatmeal, roasted carrots, salmon or yogurt. This stylish gastronomic treat makes for a pretty sweet gift, too.
