The treats that bite back! Use plain cake doughnuts, plastic fangs, red gel frosting (to make them creepier) and black candy eyes to create these horrid little faces. Then chomp away!

Ghost Cheese Pizzas

All you need to create these spooktacular mini pizzas are some refrigerated large flaky biscuits, a jar of pizza sauce and slices of mozzarella. Pull apart the biscuit layers so each pizza crust is ⅓ to ½ of a biscuit. Add a spoonful of sauce. Then, use a cookie cutter to cut ghostly slices of mozzarella to cover the tops. (We added bits of chopped black olives for the ghosts’ eyes and mouths.) Bake according to the directions on the biscuit can.
