What do Halloween and marijuana have in common? They both inspire creativity and a love for tasty treats. This Halloween, tap into your creative side with some ghoulishly tasty treats sure to conquer your next munchie attack.

Ghostly strawberries are easy to make and a favorite among both kids and kids-at-heart. To make them, dip strawberries in melted white chocolate then refrigerate to harden. Add dark chocolate details or inject the strawberries with cannabis-infused oil to turn them into an extra special treat, just remember to keep them away from the kiddos if you do.
2. Hot Dog Mummies

Test your rolling skills with these mummified hot dogs before your next fright fest. Simply cut arms and legs into a hot dog then wrap strips of crescent roll dough around the body and limbs before baking. Finish with mustard eyes and serve with “bloody” ketchup to complete the look.

Two of the most common signs of a freshly baked head are blood-shot eyes and an insatiable appetite for all things sweet. Now, you can put the two together with this simple recipe for blood-shot Oreo eyeballs. To make them, halve a few Oreo cookies (saving the half with frosting for the project), squirt a glob of icing gel on the white frosting, lightly smash a brown m&m onto the gel, then finish with red gel “veins”.
4. Harvest Hash

Trail mix, or hash, is a common party favorite because it’s easy to make and can include any number of tasty ingredients. In keeping with the harvest theme, this Harvest Hash Trail Mix includes traditional ingredients like Chex mix, pretzels and M&M’s but also includes candy corn, Honey Comb cereal and marshmallows. Of course you can add whatever you want to your mix; that’s the beauty of hash.
5. Drunken Gummy Bears

Cannabis-infused gummy bears are a popular adult treat in 420-friendly states, but drunken gummy bears can be made anywhere. All it takes is a few gummy bears, your choice of liquor and time. The longer the bears soak in the booze, the more potent they will be so be careful.
6. Homemade Butterfingers

Wondering what to do with all that leftover candy corn? Melt it down and mix with peanut butter to make homemade Butterfinger candies. After the mixture has hardened, simply cut it into bars and dip in melted milk chocolate to coat the pieces. Let the chocolate coating harden in the refrigerator for at least an hour and then have at it.
