Of course, we all know that Halloween is all about the sweets and the fun times with children, right? I’ve put together a list here of some delicious snacks and treats that would be fun to make with children to celebrate Halloween.
Candy Corn Pudding Parfaits
This simple yet pretty dessert comes from a blog called Dancing Through The Rain. It’s a great recipe for children to help with since you are making two different types of pudding which are just stirring. Every kid loves to help stir! Then once the individual puddings are almost set, layer them in the cups and top with whipped cream. If you are having a Halloween party, these would be great in mini-dessert dishes to have for guests.
Halloween Mummy Brownies
This is another fun recipe from Dancing Through The Rain. These adorable treats are made from baking brownies as normal and cutting them into circles. Then use some frosting and pipe it on to make the mummy wraps, and top it with some candy eyes. Now you have some mummy brownies! I can see these making a great treat to bring to school. Plus, you’ll have extra brownie after cutting the circles, so some for you to enjoy as well!
Simple Candy Corn Sugar Cookies
Joyfully Thriving has come up with these clever sugar cookies made to look like candy corn. Even if you don’t like candy corn, you will love these cookies! They are made by making a loaf out of three colored batches of sugar cookie dough, then slicing it into triangles, and baking. So simple and fun for the children.
Ghosts in the Graveyard
This is a great variation of pudding dirt cups designed with Halloween in mind. I made some dirt cupcakes for Ryan’s birthday this year and all the kids loved them. Sam over at Sugar Spun Run shared her recipe for making tombstone and ghosts in the graveyard pudding cups. This would be a great recipe to let kids make their own cookie tombstones for the cupcakes!
Chocolate with pretzels is one of my favorite combinations so these Halloween pretzels are a must-try for our family! Wendy at The Monday Box gives great ideas for a few different styles of pretzels you can make, such as owls, ghosts, and pumpkins! These cute Halloween treats are made with only pretzels, melting chocolate, and a few small candies for the decoration.
Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats
I haven’t had a rice krispies treat in so long, so these look extra yummy to me right now. This recipe comes from Cincy Shopper and looks so simple, yet something that the kids will surely enjoy. The pumpkins are made from regular rice krispies, a little food dye to make them orange, and topped with a tootsie roll and green fruit roll up for the stem and leaf. I can’t wait to try these out for ourselves!
Ok, one more from Cincy Shopper because she has such cute ideas! Here’s a recipe for a witch’s hat cookie that sounds like just my type of treat. I love anything with chocolate, and these are made with grasshopper cookies which are one of my favorites, then topped with a Hershey’s Kiss which is my favorite chocolate. Add a little frosting to hold it all together and you have these adorable cookies perfect for a school Halloween party!
Halloween is just around the corner, and I know those school parties will be here before you know it. Grab some of these ideas to make for your child’s classroom, and let them help you make them. With these recipes and my Halloween Bark, we are going to be sugared up before the kids even go Trick-or-Treating!
