6 Hoboken Spots for Locally-Made Halloween Candy and Sweets

Written by:

If you’ve got a serious sweet tooth, then Halloween is probably on the top of your favorite holiday list. While eating bags of candy from the drug store usually does the trick, we can’t forget that Hoboken is home to so many local bakeries and sweet shops who go all out for the holidays. Halloween is no exception, so we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite spots to grab a Halloween-themed treat {or custom order} in Hoboken.

Sweet Hoboken {343 Garden Street}

Sweet Hoboken is the perfect spot to order an impressive custom cake OR to casually pop-in for a cupcake — and they always go out for the holidays. Halloween is no exception, and here you can get spooky {and cute} quick treats and custom items.

Baking Mama {88 Hudson Street}


Baking Mama’s very own Tina Rivera {owner and you guessed it, mama [of a local Stevens student!]}, bakes up some of the yummiest sweets in town. Macaroons, chocolate chip cookies, cape pops — you name it, Tina bakes it. So, if you’ve finished your bag of candy from CVS and need something different to satisfy that sweet tooth, head downtown and pick yourself up a treat {or two, or three}.

Sugarsuckle {600 Newark Street}

From macaroons, to cake pops, dessert jars, and even this adorbz cake pictured above — Sugarsuckle is your one-stop shop to satisfy that Halloween sweet tooth.

This Hoboken staple might be most known for old-fashioned diner-style atmosphere and menu, but the homemade sweets are not to be passed on either. From homemade chocolate to fresh doughnuts and cupcakes, Schnackenberg’s is your one-stop shop for a family meal and some yummy sweets.

Lepore’s Homemade Chocolates {105 4th Street}

When a store has been serving homemade chocolate for over 30 years, you know you’re gonna get some. Lepore’s specializes in custom-made chocolates, gift baskets, and simple sweet treats that you can grab on-the-go.

Hudson Cakery {1816 Willow Avenue, Weehawken}

Although Hudson Cakery isn’t technically in Hoboken, it is close enough {right over the Weehawken bridge} and it would be a crime to not include this bakery on our list. The sweets here {from custom cakes to cookies to cake pops to macaroons and beyond} are just too good, and owner Jennifer Bruce comes to impress during Halloween time.
