Do you make anything yummy for Halloween treats for your family?  Id love some fresh ides for my kiddos. For the past 2 years, Ive made chocolate lollipops/suckers shaped like witches and pumpinks and such. I also make rice cripsy bars with orange and black m&ms and reses pieces in them. The girls love them, but Id like to make something else too. Any ideas?

I have never made anything for any holidays except a homemade apple pie for Christmas! OMG Im awful but growing up my parents never did it for us. I think making suckers and rice crispy treats sounds AWESOME! Honestly I couldnt think of anything else to make other than cookies in halloween shapes....

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin roll

Apple fritters, applebutter, apple ANYTHING

Witch's fingers (a sort of cheesy breadstick)

I know I have more stashed away from our Halloween party last year (I keep the sugar/candy to a minimum though so these are healthy but cute and adorable recipes)

Or the easiest of all?

Just use your cookie cutters on their sandwiches, cheese, etc.  Who can resist a ghost sandwich??

When my kiddos were little, I traditionally made "Puppy Chow" for halloween and handed it out at the door as well for those goblins who knew us well enough to accept a homemade treat. (Other kiddos got wrapped candy, but the ones who actually knew us knew also to ask for the Puppy Chow. It was a tradition at our house.)

It is super easy to make and looks rather like, well, Purina Puppy Chow.

my friends and I get together with our kids and make colorful popcorn balls, witches fingers cookies, and hot chocolate with halloween peeps in them.  They also like making worm in mud cups, that's pudding with crushed oreo on top and gummy worms sticking out.  And of course carmel apples.

This looks cute. I'll be using it for an enchanted forest fairy party but can easily be for halloween

My children and I usually make popcorn balls, candied apples, caramel apples, cookies (halloween shapes and iced) and lollipops.  But anything involving apples or pumpkin (baked pumpkin seeds) would be the best bet.

These are a no bake treat that the your kids can make with little to no supervision.

Haystacks

  • Butterscotch chips
  • Chow Mein Noodles
  • (can add a few tbsp of peanutbutter...optional)

Melt chips in the microwave, mix in PB if using, add chow mein noodles, stir until coated.  Drop on to wax paper or parchment paper and let dry until hardened.
