The best thing about Halloween has got to be all the the treats and sweets! Between the candy and the baked goods, Halloween is more like Christmas morning for someone with a serious sweet tooth. Here are our five favorite Halloween treats we’ll be whipping up this year:
Halloween Party Mix
This colorful, crunchy, chocolatey party mix is perfect for Halloween party guests of all ages. It travels well, too, so feel free to make several batches ahead of time and freeze them. Plus, peanuts are healthy. Ergo, this is healthy, right? Right. Find the recipe here.
Spooky Fresh Fruit
Now this really is healthy! If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to candy or just don’t want to deal with the temptation, this cute and spooky display is perfect for you! A few tiny chocolate chips pressed into half a banana makes a quick and easy ghost, while a small sliver of celery on top of a kid-friendly clementine makes a perfectly tiny pumpkin. Mark this off your classroom to-do list.
Mummies in a Blanket
These are almost too cute to eat. Almost. Sometimes the kiddos need a little break from all the fun-sized treats, and these little mummies come together in a matter of minutes. With just some hot dogs and crescent roll dough cut into strips, you can make enough to feed an army in just an afternoon. Don’t forget the mustard dot eyes! Spooky!
Ahhhhh! If there’s a contest in your near future, these monster eye cookies are sure to win you the top prize. These are made using a simple cake mix recipe and plenty of candy eyeballs, which should be available everywhere right now. Pick your own creepy colors and make these a new Halloween tradition.
Graveyard Pudding Cups
Another treat perfect for the classroom, these pudding cups will satisfy those tiny sweet teeth without making the dentist angry. Plus, kids love pudding, especially with crushed up Oreos on top. Pick up a pack of ghost marshmallow Peeps and you’ve got yourself an easy classroom contribution.
Now pour yourself a drink, Mom. You deserve it.
