    Creepy-Crawly Cookies:

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
    4. Fold in chocolate chips. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
    5. Gently press a gummy worm or candy spider onto each cookie dough ball.
    6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown around the edges. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Bewitching Brownies:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
    4. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
    5. Arrange orange candy slices on top of the batter to resemble pumpkins. Pipe green frosting onto some of the pumpkins for witch hat decoration (optional).
    6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.

    Mummy Meatballs:

    1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, egg, onion, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well until combined.
    2. Roll mixture into 1-inch meatballs. Wrap each meatball with a strip of white cheese, leaving some space between the cheese strips to resemble mummy bandages.
    3. Place meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through. Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
