3.0 out of 5 stars Halloween Treats 29 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book on offer, as I adore Halloween books. Now, this is not a bad book. It is a cute size, and has a fair few recipes in it. Sadly, they are nothing special. In total, I think there is about 2, maybe three recipes I want to try out. A lot of the cookie recipes are just variations or ghost, witches hat, coffin, and so on. All the large cakes are very much the same.

I don't regret my purchase, as I only paid £2.99 for it, but I would have been sorely disappointed if I had pain much more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new or different, disappointed 1 Jan 2014
By Gem G
Format:Hardcover
I love Halloween so I wanted to love this book. Unfortunately it's more about decorating biscuits and cakes rather than creating something that is different. It is not particularly helpful either as Its not rocket science to decorate a biscuit. It feels like a wasted opportunity, many supermarket magazines offer more choice than this. Avoid!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good ideas, but..... 17 Nov 2013
By FilmFan
Format:Hardcover
Some good recipes in here and the majority are effective and simple. But.... Beware of the recipe for toffee apples. Do not add water to the sugar as your mixture won't harden and won't turn to toffee. An error that lets down an otherwise okay book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great style & photos... for British audiences?!? 11 Sep 2012
By Scary Jerry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This cute, pint-size book offers a "greatest hits" collection of recipes for now ubiquitous treats like severed finger cookies, meringue bones, cobweb and mummy cupcakes. The photography and design is beautiful, however, the recipes have only been minimally adapted for American audiences so some of the directions are somewhat perplexing on first read. Caster sugar? Preheat the oven to Gas 4? Fruit pasties? Come on publisher. Halloween is a quintessential American holiday. You couldn't give this lovely styled book a quick rewrite?
3.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but not practical 15 Nov 2012
By Michael Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought "Halloween Treats" because I was looking for fun recipies to make for my best friend whose birthday is Halloween. The recipies are really nice, but fancier then I care for and I'm really not into fancy decorating cookies etc. I think it's a great cookbook for folks, ladies especially who really like decorating things more then I do.
4.0 out of 5 stars Make baking a part of your Halloween traditions 10 Oct 2012
By thewritersjourney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Carving jack-o-lanterns, dressing up for trick or treating, watching horror movies. The only thing that has been missing from our annual traditions is one that is more closely associated with Christmas: baking desserts. Thanks to Annie Rigg's Halloween Treats: Simply Spooky Recipes for Ghoulish Sweet Treats, that is changing.

Coffin sandwich cookies, mummified cupcakes, large cakes covered with bats, ghosts, or spiderwebs, meringue bones...there are so many great recipes to choose from here. Some of the recipes are easy enough for children to help with, while others are designed for the more experienced bakers, but there is definitely something here for everyone. The step-by-step directions are easy to follow, so you will be able to delight all of your frightful friends, young and old, with these Halloween goodies.
