Even if you are a dentist on a diet, everyone has a sweet tooth on Halloween. And what a better way to spend a candy-centric holiday than by eating a ton of sweets! Not only will these treats give you a major sugar rush, but also get you in the spooky spirit. Or should I say get the spooky spirit in you! Get it. Because spirits can posses you! Either way, here are the best themed treats the City has the offer:
If you haven’t had one yet, book it to Buns Bar for one of their legendary freakshakes. And if you don’t know what a freakshake is, we can’t talk anymore. To celebrate the scariest day of the year, Buns Bar brings milkshake-lovers a scarily massive and deliciously decorated Halloween shake. The sea salt caramel shake comes topped with everything you could hope for including pumpkin bombolinis. Two words: mini donuts.
All through October, the creator of the Cupcake ATM is serving up a Halloween BOO box! It’s just as cute as it sounds with vanilla milk chocolate, red velvet, black & white, and caramel apple cupcakes. Each is decorated with sugar decorations of little ghosts or little BOO letters.
One of the many staples of the New York dessert scene, Magnolia dominates Halloween with a vast variety of themed cupcakes and cakes. They will be selling their classic cupcakes and cakes topped with Halloween decorations. Lastly, you can surprise your friends with a dozen of their spooky mini cupcakes . How ghoul? I mean, how cool?
In both his Bakery (Soho) and Kitchen (West Village), this James Beard Award-winning Pastry Chef will be gifting a cute and spirited (ha!) Jack-o-Lantern Religieuse from the 27th to the 31st of October. The traditional French double-decker cream puff, is dressed up as a Jack-o-Lantern filled with milk chocolate orange ganache on the bottom, with an adorable little bat filled with blueberry ganache on top.
Dylan’s Candy Bar
They have an entire collection of Halloween-themed treats. It’s vast and amazing. Think of anything you dip in chocolate and they have dipped it and decorated it to look like all ten of your childhood Halloween costumes. But the most exciting one of all: chocolate covered Twinkies.
Jacques Torres Chocolate
Mr. Chocolate strikes again with his punny Halloween-themed chocolate. You can get chocolate Jacques O’ Lantern, Wicked Hot Chocolate, and a chocolate Jacques’ Haunted House. Honestly, they are so cool, you may not even want to eat it! Just kidding, they are delicious.
Try one, or try them all! They are scary good.
