Best Fall Dessert Recipes You Have To Try

Fall is the perfect time for baking delicious desserts. From pumpkin pie and apple crumble to spiced cakes and cinnamon rolls, there are so many delicious treats to enjoy. If you're looking for some new recipes to try this fall, we've got you covered. Here are some of the best fall dessert recipes you have to try. From classic favorites to unique flavor combinations, these recipes will be sure to make your autumn season even sweeter.

There's less than a month before Halloween (one of my favorite holidays ever) and I figured it's time to start searching for awesome dessert recipes to make with family and friends! I usually don't go for pumpkin spice flavored everything and have been on a hunt for a variety of easy treats to make that (hopefully) you guys will enjoy, too! All of the recipes I've come across are fairly simple, easy to share (or have all to yourself), and won't take long. Let's be real, you have better things to do like watch Hocus Pocus or figure out what you're dressing up as for Halloween. 


Chocolate Apple Pops

If you're lucky enough to live somewhere that you can easily go apple picking (thank you, New York), this recipe is even better! Chocolate apple pops are great for parties or a one- person Netflix binge- watching session- don't pretend you don't do it. Top with your favorite treats, from M&M's and white chocolate to pretzels and drizzled caramel.

Apple Dumplings

Okay, I'm already drooling. These apple dumplings are the perfect alternative to the traditional apple pie, and come on, they look adorable. You can make them with pre- made puff pastry, so the prep time is super short and you get to eat just that much sooner. Finish up the recipe by drizzling warm caramel and sprinkling cinnamon- sugar over the top. Voila, you have the perfect warm dessert on those cozy fall nights. You're welcome.

Cider Donuts

Pretty much the main reason I go to farms in the fall is to get apple cider donuts (and pet all of the animals, but that's a given). Make these delicious donuts right at home with a recipe that's fun for the whole family. Warning: this recipe has more ingredients than most do on this list, but it's well worth the warm deliciousness. Serve with heated Nutella, hot fudge, or gooey caramel for an especially great flavor.

Here is the recipe.


Graveyard Chocolate Cheesecake Dip

If you're too lazy to make this one, you can always opt for the "dirt pudding" alternative. But for those of you who are feeling particularly fancy, try this chocolate cheesecake dip. As for what to actually dip in the dip, your options are limitless. Cookies, pound cake, pretzels, graham crackers, and apple slices are just a few options to satisfy your tastebuds and cause you to eat way more dip than any human probably should. Enjoy!

Crunchy Caramel Popcorn

Granted, you totally could buy caramel popcorn from the store or literally just drizzle caramel sauce over popcorn, but this recipe is another one to create time with family and friends, too. Plus, it involves white chocolate and sprinkles (or any other toppings you can dream up).

Brownie Cupcakes

Two of my favorite things, combined. The best part about this brownie cupcake recipe is that you can decorate them however you'd like and make them on multiple occasions (because no one can ever have enough). For Halloween, add orange food coloring to your frosting and top them with sprinkles and candy pumpkins.

Jack Skellington Oreo Pops

The Nightmare Before Christmas fans: this one is for you. These oreo pops are easy and quick to make, plus they're cute. Try these for your child's Halloween classroom party at school or for a gathering of your own. Bonus: these are also great trick- or- treat favors! Just use plastic wrap and tie a bow, and you'll become everyone's favorite house on the block. 

Here is the recipe.


Brownie Bat Truffles

Brownie and truffle in the same sentence is already almost too much to handle...almost. Also made with simple ingredients, you can and will down about 10 of these within 5 minutes by yourself. Or, I guess you could share. Since these are practically bite- sized, they're another great treat to serve at parties.

Here is the recipe.


Peanut Butter Eyeballs

These are a classic Halloween treat, and if you haven't tried them, you need to! They're the perfect, indescribable mixture between a chewy cookie and a weird truffle. Kids eat these things up like there's no tomorrow, and they're fun to decorate (as gross as it seems).

Mummy Pumpkin Cookies

Yes, I had to include one pumpkin recipe on here. These mummy pumpkin cookies are a great activity with your roommates, family, significant other, friends, and kids. This recipe is a bit more involved than any of the others, but it's great to make a night out of it and watch some scary movies afterwards. For anyone who doesn't like pumpkin, you can swap it out for caramelized apples.
