From little monsters to grown-up goblins, Halloween is when sweets truly take center stage. Make this October 31 a day to remember with these spine-tingling celebration tips.

Cobweb Cupcake

Host a Spooky Story Night. Have family and friends dress up in their costumes and come over to tell haunting tales. Make a story chain by having each person tell a portion of a story and take turns adding embellishments and silly twists.

Practice Safe Trick-or-Treating. Contact your neighbors and suggest meeting as a large group to trick-or-treat together. Create a map of trusted houses for the group to visit, with each family hosting for a half-hour of games, snacks and refreshments. Rotate until everyone gets to play host.

Enjoy a Family Bake-tivity. On the night before Halloween, gather the kids to bake these simple but eye-catching cupcakes adorned with “cobwebs.” Enjoy them the next night when it’s your turn to host the neighborhood trick-or-treaters,
