4 Easy Halloween Treats from Tori Spelling. So Cute!

The secret ingredient in these fun Halloween treats from the actress and DIY diva? Candy Corn

Take Halloween (her favorite holiday), candy corn (her favorite trick-or-treat candy) and DIY (her favorite hobby) and Tori Spelling is one happy crafter.

The actress/TV host/author/blogger/mom teamed up with Starburst Candy Corn (yes, they come in candy corn form for a limited time), to whip up Halloween treats and crafts.

"Halloween has always been my favorite holiday ever since I was a little girl," Spelling told iVillage, taking a break from working with her 90210 costar Jennie Garth on the pilot for their new ABC Family series Mystery Girls. (Yes, we're excited about that, too.) "I'm all about kicking it up a notch and taking it to a new, fun, creative festive point of view."

Spelling says her family shares her love of Halloween. Her two oldest kids, Liam and Stella, will be dressed as zombies (a "ballerina zombie" specifically for Stella). She and the kids bake the Halloween treats, while husband Dean McDermott handles the decor. "My husband is really good with lights, so he usually strings up lights and does a spooky fog machine in the front of house, while we’re inside baking and finishing the decorating."

Need some fun ways to get in the spirit? Here are four unexpected ways to have fun with candy corn this Halloween:

How to do it: Bake a batch of cupcakes in festive liners (like these black and white striped ones), frost and stick one Starburst Candy Corn in the middle, fanning other pieces out around it.

How to do it: Pour your mixture onto a cookie sheet in a single layer and let it cool. Then, using Halloween-themed cookie cutters, gently press out designs, lining the outer rim with candy corn.

How to do it: Instead of eating candy corn, wear it! Use a glue gun to attach five to six pieces of candy corn to flat-face beads. Once dry, string the embellished beads on a gold chain one at time, each followed by two metallic beads, to cover a third of your chain. (Save this craft for big kids -- and moms! -- since you don't want little kids to eat the beads by mistake.)

Bewitching Bangle
