Let Your Halloween Treats Shine On Insta With These 35 Spookilicious Captions

Originally Published: 

Halloween is your holiday, and you’ve had your sights set on All Hallows' Eve since Nov. 1 of last year. To say that you’re well prepared for this year’s festivities would be an understatement at best: Your couple's costume was agreed on months ago, and while everyone else might’ve been fixated on pumpkin spice and everything autumnally nice since Sept. 1, you’ve been busy furnishing your space with ghoulish decor and losing yourself in one Stephen King novel after another. You’ve pretty much thought of everything... except the Instagram captions for the homemade Halloween treats crisping in the oven or cooling in your fridge right about now.

Important as it may be to don the costume of your dreams — or your nightmares, depending on the vibe you’re going for this year — you won’t be crowned host with the most if your guests come hungry and leave on an empty stomach. Sure, you could string together some kitschy party bags filled with the goodies like dark chocolate Kit-Kats, Justin’s Dark Chocolate Cashew Butter Cups, and Unreal’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Gems, but your friends are going to want to snack on something while they sample your signature witch's brew. Save the favors for your goodbyes, whip up some homemade Halloween treats like caramel apple pops or spider web bean dip, post a pic to Instagram, and caption the photo with any of these clever one-liners that’ll entice anyone who dared RSVP “maybe” to attend.
