Spooky treats to enjoy this Halloween!

Here at Bookends HQ, we firmly believe that Halloween wouldn’t be complete without a pile of sugary treats and tasty pumpkin-flavoured goodies.

If you’re looking for some spooky new dishes and bakes to enjoy, Bookends have got you covered with three frighteningly brilliant recipes to try this weekend (if you dare!)…


For a eye-catching Halloween showstopper, Liam Charles’ Trick or Cheeky Treat is an spooky masterpiece (and, as you can see, looks perfect sat atop a smiling pumpkin!). Packed full of autumnal flavour, this pumpkin, chocolate and Guinness cake from Liam’s new book Cheeky Treats would make an extra-special centrepiece for any Halloween feast.


For a gloriously autumnal bake, try making these super easy Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes from Zoe Sugg’s wonderful new book Cordially Invited. Full of pumpkin-flavoured goodness and topped with adorable marzipan pumpkins – these cakes are definitely more of a treat than a trick!


For something a little more grown-up to complete any Halloween feast, this Winter Squash Red Curry from The Borough Market Cookbook is just the trick. Perfect with seasonal veg like pumpkin and ‘winter squash’, this spicy curry will provide a welcome break from the sweet treats you’ll be snacking on this Halloween…
