Halloween Treats For Kids
Make some fun Halloween treats that are also kid-friendly this Halloween.

Candy might be the treat of choice for most kids on Halloween, but a sugar rush from some other spooky treats themed after the holiday might be even better.

Whether you’re hosting a small get-together, looking to make some treats for your kids class, or just trying to find alternative ways to satisfy your kid’s sweet tooth outside of the candy they may get while trick-or-treating, then look no further than these eight awesome recipes that are not only kid-friendly but surely able to keep the spooky elements of Halloween very much alive.

Brownie Spiders: For some people, there’s nothing creepier than a spider, and kids will have lots of fun making this super easy and fun treat recipe from Gimme Some Oven. All they need to do to make their brownie more Halloween friendly is insert some candy eyeballs and chocolate-covered chow-mein noodles.

Cookie Skulls: Halloween isn’t the only celebration happening at the end of October—the Mexican celebration of Dia De Los Muertos is also happening. What better way to welcome back the souls of dearly departed loved ones than with a sweet treat that also looks (almost) too pretty to eat?

Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats: This recipe from Pretty Providence is super easy, super fun, and super delicious—what kid doesn’t love a Rice Krispie treat?

Ghost Pretzels: The easiest possible recipe you can make on Halloween? CandiQuick Ghost Pretzels. After melting vanilla Candiquick, all you need to do is dip pretzel rods in it, add some mini chocolate chips for a face, and let harden.

Gooey Monster Cookies: These cookies are not only colorful but evoke some fun Disney vibes with multiple eyes—any kid who loves “Monsters, Inc.” will enjoy making and devouring these soft and delicious cookie treats from Lil’ Luna.

Haunted Gingerbread House: This may require more adult supervision for decoration and assembly, but kids will appreciate the effort made to recreate a traditional Christmas treat and make it spooky and scary for Halloween. This recipe from Woman’s Day allows the use of mini Oreo cookies, royal icing, candy corn, Golden Grahams cereal, wafer cookies, candy, melted hard caramels and Twizzlers, among other treats, to make the most perfect (and Insta-worthy) haunted Gingerbread house in the whole patch.

Poison Apples: Candy apples are a must-have treat on Halloween. This recipe will make them even more fun to eat.
