Sweet and Spooky Halloween Treats

S

There are some people who love Halloween for the candy, and there are others who love it for the costumes, but before either can happen it’s time to prepare some spooktacular sweet treats. From simple recipes such as pumpkin spice cake pops to a full-fledged pumpkin cheesecake with all the festive trimmings, these ideas will have you covered come October 31st. Use these recipes to have something ready for any trick-or-treater that knocks on your door.

Edible Arachnids

The possibilities are endless with this fun and festive idea. Give out candied stick men or spiderweb cookies instead of a traditional Hershey bar.

Nightcap Cookies

This recipe is dense and chewy, just like a healthy treat should be. The flavor is sweet and comes from the combination of chocolate, honey, and dried cranberries. The combination will lull the recipient into a zombie-like state, from which they’ll only be able to awaken once the sun has risen on Halloween morning.

Ghosty Marshmallows

These little marshmallows are a bit time-consuming, but they are well worth the effort. These spooky and adorable, icy treats will quickly disappear into trick-or-treaters’ buckets, so be sure to make plenty. Once finished, package them in small clear cellophane bags to dress up your gift and ensure none of the treats get eaten by the family dog while they wait to be given out.

Jack-o’-Lantern Cream Puffs

These treats are not only delicious, but they’re also seriously adorable. They have been a Halloween favorite for years because they look as good as they taste. They make a great addition to any dessert spread and are sure to be a hit with your guests—or trick-or-treaters.

Pumpkin Spice Cake Pops

The flavors of the fall are perfect when paired with cake pops. These treats are simple to make, but they look so cute once they’re done that it will be hard to resist eating them all. These are also a good choice for trick-or-treaters who prefer a treat that’s softer than other more solid options.

Fuzzy Pumpkin Treats

So you’ve decided to give out sugary sweets, but the spooky part of Halloween is the wearing of costumes. These pumkin spice muffins are perfect, whether they’re dressed up or not.

Mini Pumpkin Pasties

These pastries are a fun alternative to pumpkin pie and have the added bonus of being bite-sized, making them easy to pass out. They’re also a great way to get in Halloween-friendly food into your children while still keeping them healthy. It will be hard to keep these little pastries on the plate.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pops

No one can ever have too many pumpkin treats. These pops are a delicious option that doesn’t get it’s flavor from pumpkin spice, but from the canned puree. This recipe is also perfect for children to make after school or on a rainy day.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

These cookies will be the hit of any Halloween gathering. The recipe combines the flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a soft and chewy cookie. They’re perfect for both autumn and Halloween, but will also be a hit all year round.

Snickerdoodle Cookies

These cookies are perfectly sweet and perfectly spooky. The creamy white chocolate filling will provide delicious contrast to the crispy exterior of the cookie. These will be the first to disappear at any Halloween party or on any plate of trick-or-treater treats.

Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies

These whoopie pies are a dryer, cakeier version of the traditional pumpkin spice cake with frosting. They can be made in advance and frozen, making them perfect for a harvest party or Halloween celebration. These treats are a great way to dress up your usual supermarket sweets while still honoring tradition.

Witches’ Brooms

Here’s another Halloween dessert option perfect for your little witches and warlocks. This treat is fun to make and will only take about ten minutes of your time. They make a great addition to any Halloween party, but can also be served as a special treat during the month-long celebration.

Edible Spiderwebs

These spiderwebs taste just like sugar cookies, so you could easily use the same recipe to make normal sugar cookies. The only thing that sets these apart is the surprise of the real-life spiders hiding in the cookies. You’ll have to cut them open to find out what kind of spiders are inside, but they are guaranteed to be a hit with everyone who eats them.

Candy Corn Pops

These orange treats are a fun trick or treat treat, and they’re also an alternative treat when you don’t have time to make pumpkin or chocolate ones. They make a great alternative to other candy corn-style treats.

Bacon-Wrapped Rosy Pumpkins

These rosy pumpkins are made with apples and bacon, so they could easily be included in a fall cookout or Thanksgiving meal. The rosy color also lends itself perfectly to Halloween decorating, as does the bacon wrappings—or you can leave them out entirely if you want to take a more natural approach. Either way, these are sure to be a hit with your guests.

Pumpkin Snowballs

These snowballs work great as a Halloween treat or something special to serve before Halloween. They’re simple to make, so they’re easy for children to make and perfect for parties. They also make a great alternative for people who want a sugar-free treat this Halloween.

Endless Eyes

Another fun way to make your sweets a little spookier this Halloween is to include eyes on them. These cookies are a great idea for kids’ school parties or for any family celebration. They will certainly be a hit with all of the kids who get these treats in their treat bags, and they’re easy enough for the kids to make themselves.

Pumpkin Marshmallow Pops

This simple dessert is a great way for children to get involved in the Halloween spirit. It’s an easy recipe that provides instant gratification, and it’s sure to be a hit with mummy, ghost, and bunny alike. This treat is definitely not for children who are scared of spiders, but it also isn’t too scary for young children who are getting into Halloween but aren’t quite ready to deal with masks and costumes yet.

Halloween is about treats and tricks, and you should definitely be able to provide those for your children and their friends this October. Treats that are safe for kids to have can help make their experience a more enjoyable one. The great thing about making something yourself is that it’ll be much easier to keep track of if you have self-control issues.
