delightful dessert ideas to transform any Halloween celebration into a sweet
affair. These fun, simple and affordable dessert tips are perfect for families
planning the ultimate Halloween party.

  oCoffin Cakes: These terrifying treats are made with Peppermint Kandy Bar
    Kakes and ready-made chocolate frosting. With a knife, trim the long edges
    of the cake into a coffin shape and cover the entire cake with chocolate
    frosting. For that final frightening touch, outline the cake with white
    icing and spell out R.I.P. at the top.
  oSpooky S'more Pops: Campfire ghost stories are the inspiration behind this
    Halloween treat. Cut in half a S'mores Kandy Bar Kake and insert a
    lollipop stick into each half. Cover the entire cake with marshmallow
    fluff, making sure to coat a portion of the lollipop stick. Roll the cake
    in crumbled graham crackers and place in the freezer for 15 minutes until
    the marshmallow and graham cracker coating hardens.
  oCreepy Crawly Cake Bites: Satisfy even the most ghoulish guests with
    bite-sized treats made with the Peanut Butter Kandy Bar Kake. Simply cut
    the cake in half width-wise, place four licorice pieces into each side for
    legs, and top with two candy corns for eyes to create a creepy crawly
  oDevilish Dirt Cups: Make guests squirm with delicious "dirt" cups made
    with any of the Kandy Bar Kakes. Crumble the cakes into small pieces and
    mix with chocolate pudding. Top the cake mixture with a few colorful gummy
    worms and serve in petite mason jars for a trendy touch.

Available in 5-count individually wrapped multi-packs and 2.1-ounce single
serves, Kandy Bar Kakes can be found in the snack aisle in mass merchandisers,
supermarkets and convenience stores. Suggested retail price for a single serve
is $1.69 and $3.99 for a 5-count multi-pack. For more information, visit
