1. Monster Melon

Lets start with the appropriately scared looking monster melon. After attempting to carve a pumpkin on several occasions at this point there's no doubt you will be a proficient carver by now, even if that's not the case, this one is really simple. The only carving involved is the monster mouth, then with two; apple slices blueberries and toothpicks you've got the eyes, now all that is left to do is use the watermelon and your favourite other fruit to fill and let spill out of its mouth for display.

4. Scary Strawberries

Time for something a little sweeter. Take your strawberries and some chocolate, get a mix of milk, white and dark, then simply melt the chocolate and dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate.

5. Wicked Witches Hats

This one will separate the ghouls from the ghosts. This spellbinding desert is delicious and all you need are a few ingredients: 8 ounces black candy coating wafers (alternatively use milk tempered chocolate ), Oreo Cookies, strawberries, green decorating icing and  orange-colored sprinkles. Microwave the candy coating wafers for 1 minute and stir until smooth. Next dip the Oreos into the melted coating covering evenly. Cut the top off of the strawberries and then dip into the candy coating, place the strawberries on top of the Oreos and let them sit. Finally use the icing and the sprinkles to decorate like a witches hat. Then sit back marvel at and enjoy your creations.
