I LOVE October. In my opinion, October is one of the best weather months, and the end of the month offers the best party, Halloween.
There’s never been a year I have not decorated, or gone all out for the holiday.
Let’s get as creepy as we can and make these cool desserts for Halloween.
Often, before my kids trick or treat, I prepare a large buffet down the center island.
Their friends will come over before they go out and they all stockpile on fun eats.
When I do this, I also make my most requested homemade strawberry blood-filled Coffin-Shaped Pop-Tarts.
Additionally, I prepare Mummy Hotdogs, salted caramel chocolate apple bites, and pizza.
They scoff it all down, and while they are trick or treating, I replenish the buffet.
Once they have filled their bags with treats, they all come home and eat more, then everyone goes home.
Get creepy, keep it fun, and create Strawberry Blood-Filled Coffin-Shaped Pop Tarts and watch them ghoulishly make the platter disappear.

A little background – Blood and Cutters
Let’s talk about the filling just for a second.
Strawberry is the perfect color to mimic blood.
If any should come through the seams of the pop tart, that’s great!
Also, the kids will probably open their mouths and show each other the blood in their mouths.
Yes, boys, I have boys!
Really the color of the jam, adds to the eerieness of the season.
Make them October 1, and you will be making them again and I again, I promise!
Since terror reigns supreme with Halloween, the strawberry filling will add that tinge of terror in!
Which leads me to the final point.
Don’t mess up a baking tray making these treats.
Make Cleanup Easier
Instead, make sure to line your trays with parchment paper.
Once you are done baking, and the pop tarts are made, simply throw the parchment paper away.
Don’t forget you can also use tray liners as seen here as well.
Last, you will need to purchase a Coffin Cookie Cutter, just click those words and it will take you right to one, that you can ship right to your home!
I prefer stainless steel cookie cutters, but plastic Coffin Cookie Cutters are also available.
Truly this is all personal preference.
These are pretty standard ingredients so nothing scary here.
What is scarier?
Kids with hungry bellies that keep saying, “mom what is there to eat?”
Time to bake!
