These frightfully easy recipes for Halloween treats will make every day in October feel like the holiday.
If you’re anything like me, you love Halloween! Costumes, class parties, and trick-or-treating are all just such great fun. I also love being that house that everyone wants to come to because we hand out life-size candy bars. Sorry, not sorry!
I love coming up with creative sweets all month long, when else are you able to have so much fun? We’ve got everything from Halloween goodies to Halloween decorations covered.
Okay, so if you forget the sweets, the kids may get upset, but I’d choose any of these top Halloween Snacks over candy any day. They range from simple to exquisite and have varying levels of complexity. They are all BOO-tiful in their own way.
I’ve got a few of my personal favorites, and as my children looked over my shoulder, I heard numerous shouts of which treat(S) they desired.
You can use these treats for any occasion, whether it’s a get-together, class party, Halloween party, or just as a fun treat for the family.
A sugar- overload on Halloween was always an issue in our house until we came to the decision that they could eat as much candy as they want that night. Afterward, they would get to pick their favorite 10 pieces of candy to ration out and enjoy throughout the next week.
The remainder went to the PHANTOM GHOST in exchange for the candy that was always left behind by the ghost after a family board game. This “ghost” put this candy to great use.
For example, the “ghost” would store the M&M’s for movie night. The loli-pops for road trips before being given as rewards to Mr. Phantom, a middle school teacher who worked there and gave them out. The phantom ghost was primarily concerned with self-defense, her waistline, and her lack of self-control, as well as the cost of unanticipated dental visits.
Don’t forget to pin this to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
Cheers to a fantastic month preparing for a holiday that the children adore and anticipate every single year. Enjoy these 50 of the BEST Halloween Treats – I’m sure we’ll enjoy more than a few!
