Halloween is just around the corner, and with it, Halloween parties! Whether you need to bring a treat to your kid’s class party or to your grown-up soiree, we’ve sourced some delectably creepy tea-infused recipes that will get the job done.

1) Tea-Licious Frankenstein Halloween Cookies
These cookies from Brit + Co rely on matcha to make Frankenstein both green and tasty. This monster never looks so good!
This recipe from Kitchn is an eyeful—er, we mean mouthful. Blueberries, pimiento-stuffed olives, and longan fruit are used to make faux eyeballs, which find a home in gooey coconut green tea chia pudding. To make the pudding, you’ll combine sugar, water, lime, salt, matcha powder, coconut milk, and chia seeds. Chill for at least 4 hours—or, ideally, overnight—then serve to brave guests!
3) Zombie Finger Cookies
This recipe from All Roads Lead to the Kitchen promises finger-licking fun. These cookies get their flavor and color from pistachios and matcha, with extra notes and pigment from strawberry or raspberry jam for the fingernails. Bake these creepy cookies and you’ll have party goers wrapped around your finger.
