Trick-or-treating may be off the cards this year, but we certainly will still be indulging in some sugary, and somewhat scary-looking, treats. So in anticipation of Halloween (October 31) this year, we’ve pulled together the best spooky sweets and treats that you can grab right here in Hong Kong. From spooky churros and haunted house cookies to a really lifelike chocolate toad and more, these are the best treats to sweeten up Halloween this year.

RECOMMENDED: Looking for more sweet treats? Try these desserts from around the globe or head out and find the best desserts in these Hong Kong cafes.

The set contains six baked organic sugar cookies ($60 each) topped with Halloween-inspired fondant icing and wrapped in a pumpkin box, perfect for gifting or simply indulging in yourself.

Fortnum's are really making an effort for Halloween with a whole host of confections and treats to get you hopped up on the most haunted time of the year. From a gruesomely green Witches Brew hot chocolate ($138) to deadly chocolate skulls ($98 for three) in milk, dark and white chocolate, and even a chocolate toad ($378) in a gift box which is poured, sculpted and hand-painted exclusively for Fortnum’s by a classically trained sculptor from South of England. The toad is pretty lifelike, so you’ve been warned if you don’t like amphibians!

Available October 26 to November 1, Twist & Buckle have come up with a creative Halloween-themed churro ($65) that comes with earth-like Oreo crumbles and a marshmallow spider web finished off with blood-red strawberry and electric blue chocolate spiders. The churro served on top of Twist & Buckle’s signature Hokkaido milk soft serve, makes the Halloween treat a delightfully delicious, maybe not so scary, dessert.

In-store from October, M&S are providing all the party treats which include some rather gruesome severed fingers ($59) – that is, of course, made of chocolate – cheesy vampire fang crisps ($35), tubs of fruity sweets ($99) filled with jelly brains, bones and hearts, and many other monstrosities. They will also be fully stocked with pumpkins in various shapes and sizes, ready for carving with the family.

Hong Kong brand Lucullus is also pulling out all the stops for All Hallows Eve with a series of gift boxes filled with themed cookies, chocolates, and desserts. Highlights include the pumpkin parade chocolate gift box ($128) which features handcrafted chocolates, some of which are pumpkin-shaped and some made with premium 73 percent dark truffle chocolate; rocky road chocolates filled with marshmallow and nuts packaged as a gift of Black Cat Magic ($78) or friendly ghost Boo Bash ($78); and chocolates and cookies in the haunted house box ($128) which also contains chocolates filled with brandy and rum liqueurs. Who said Halloween sweets are just for kids?

Over at the house of Godiva, decadent Halloween chocolates await. Great as little trick-or-treat gift tins for the little (or big) ones, the new series offers a purple witches cat ($169) and pumpkin gift box ($399). The Halloween cat tin is filled with dark chocolate truffles and milk chocolate pearls, while the pumpkin holds a variety of flavours in dark, milk, hazelnut, strawberry, vanilla, and matcha truffles.

In the name of Halloween, here's some scary stuff to go with your scary sweets!
