Making a Halloween gift basket?

Question by Ely: Making a Halloween gift basket?
Does anyone have any ideas or recipes for Halloween baked goods? I’m looking for decorating tips on making Halloween themed cookies, brownies, anything else, etc. Plus, would it be a good idea to put these items in a woven basket (like those Easter baskets type of thing), tie it with black and orange ribbons, and wrap it in clear wrap? Any help appreciated.

My sister has a party every year and I always make something. One of the things this year I am making is a strawberry ghost. You dip the berry in white chocolate and use brown chocolate for the eyes. Cute.
