Get in the Halloween spirit with these plant-based treats.
Silver Lake and Tarzana
Halloween candy is good and all, but have you ever tried the phenomenal items at this vegan-friendly dessert stop? This Halloween, ditch those fun size candy bars and grab a slice of Halloween Midnight Chocolate Pie from Magpies! You’ll experience layers and layers of coconut-based Midnight Chocolate soft serve, crunchies, and vegan fudge. It’s decorated in a hypnotizing chocolate spider web––but don’t get too entranced in the visual details of it all before it melts!
What is minty, vegan, and green with eyeballs? The new Frankenmint Bella Bar from Cocobella! It’s composed of Frankenmint, a coconut milk-based mint ice cream with house-made brownie pieces and red blood strawberry sauce. Decorated with marshmallows, chocolate, and crumbles of chocolate cookies, it’s a no brainer that you need to get one ASAP! For an ice cream cone to match your soul, they have black gluten-free waffle cones colored with activated charcoal!
These Pennywise-frosted cookies are so It this year! For other eerie eats, pick up some jam-filled cupcakes frosted in spider webs, chocolate-covered Rice Krispies, frosted cookies, and more! Still not satisfied? Get any cake, cupcake, or cookie decorated to match your favorite Halloween character!

Highland Park and DTLA
All hail Donut Friend this All Hallows Eve! Instead of their X-Ray Speculoos donut, ask for the X-Ray Spookuloos donut! What’s the difference? Other than the change of vowel, It’s the same raised donut filled with cookie butter and topped in a chocolate glaze. Instead of the traditional criss-cross decoration, they create a spider web design for an even more Instagrammable ring of sweet delicious dough!
Erin McKenna's Bakery
Larchmont and Santa Monica
The holiday treats at this vegan and gluten-free bakery are not your mummy’s typical desserts! You’ll find festive cupcakes that look like bats, ghosts, mummy’s, and more! They can also do Halloween-themed cake decoration on full-size cakes!
Krimsey's Cajun Kitchen
