With Halloween fast approaching I’m remembering the craziness of previous years. The portion of time between when my kids get out of school and when the sun is actually dow and we can go trick-or-treating is like torture for all of us.
Halloween treats just might be the answer to this problem. Instead of sitting around waiting for it to get dark, let’s make some adorable and tasty Halloween treats!
I know, I know, Frankenstein was NOT the name of the monster, it was the name of the monster’s creator. But we still named these Franken Krispies because we’re rebels like that.
Next up, these adorable mummy pops, because balls of cake on a stick is always a good idea.
Cake pops are one thing, but these Frankenstein cookie pops are just WAY too cute!
Keeping with the treats on a stick theme, I’m obsessing over these spooky marshmallow treats! They are too cute and would be so quick to throw together at the last minute.
I love that this mom took the Halloween treat idea and made it healthy! Her Frightful fruit salad looks delicious!
This mom threw an entire Fall/Halloween party with lots of great treats and snack ideas. I want to try one of those cupcakes asap!
If you want things to look pumpkin-y but not have to deal with the pumpkin flavor, try these mini pumpkin bundt cakes. I never realized how much mini bundts look like pumpkins!
For a savory Halloween treat, try this easy Halloween cheese ball. It is rolled in doritos and looks excellent!
These mummy haystacks would be super easy to throw together at the last minute if you happen to forget that your preschooler needs to bring a snack to the Halloween party tomorrow. Not that I’ve ever forgotten about preschool parties (cough).
Macaroni and cheese monsters make an adorable snack that would be perfect to fill up on before you go trick or treating!
Send your kids to school with this adorable pumpkin bento box!
This Franken-Smoothie is monster themed so your kids won’t be asking questions about why it’s green (spinach) and just slurp it down.
Breakfast Halloween morning is taken care of with this fun recipe for chocolate spider donuts!
Boooo! Melting ghosts on brownies is such a fun twist on your favorite brownie recipe.
Molasses cookies, and adorable decorations make these fun Mummy Cookies. You could easily use a sugar cookie recipe with the same top design if you prefer that flavor to molasses.
The wiggly legs on these spider brownie bites had me giggling, I’d love to see my kids faces with these on their plates.
I’m not much of a cookie decorator but these easy Frankenstein decorated cookies look like something I might even be able to swing myself. Adorable!
If you love candy (or end up with too much candy after the holiday) try these Halloween Rolo Bites!
These pumpkin cookies are TOO CUTE! I love the splash of color they would add to any party or table!
If you are planning to serve up some hot chocolate to warm up after going door-to-door, pair it with these adorable Halloween candy spoons!
Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats are perfect in shape, size, color and flavor. These would make fun gifts or party food!
You know I love anything even remotely Harry Potter related, so these cauldron cakes immediately caught my eye. So fun!
I love that they squeezed so many of our favorite flavors into these MONSTER cookies!
Chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies are taken to the next level with these spider web cookies!
I’m super impressed with this recipes for spider donuts. It’s so cool how they STAND on the table!
Fluffy and sweet, this recipe for pumpkin dip is a great snack to have on hand if you are going to have a lot of people in and out of your house on Halloween night.
This is a simple recipe for bats and cats graham crackers.
Lastly, we have a tasty recipe for homemade toffee candy apples! Messy but oh so tasty!
