This year, we are going beyond just chocolate and lollies. Instead, we are opting for more innovative treats like some really yucky looking (but tasty) cakes and theme-shaped cookies. So even if you’re not a candy person (the horror!), there is still dessert that you can dig into after midnight. Here are a few of our favorites that might just leave your sweet tooth begging for more!
