We’ve Got You Covered
Going to a Halloween party? Having friends over for a casual Halloween get-together? Hanging out with family or friends post-trick-or-treating? We’ve rounded up ten great, SUPER easy treats you can make, including several healthy options. Most of these treats take less than 10 minutes to make, with just a few simple ingredients you probably already have on hand (like we said, we’re focused on EASY!). They’re so easy, kids can help out in the kitchen as well!
Click the treat title to get the recipe, and be sure to check out the suggestions we’ve included to help you out.
These are so easy to make! And mmmm, mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups!
Tip: Can’t find the edible candy eyeballs? Try substituting with mini marshmallows (cut in half so they’re not so tall) and a dot of black decorating gel!
Tip: You could try using black decorating gel instead of milk chocolate melts for the faces, to make it even quicker. But test this out – the decorating gel may run and drip a bit.
These are SO easy to make and look so cute!
- Add some of the little leaves from the celery stalks, or from a fresh herb (like basil, mint, or parsley) for an added touch on the pumpkins.
- It’s a little tricky to get the banana ghosts to stay standing; you might have to slice off a little bit extra off the bottom so that they stand more upright.
- We printed little “RIP Bananas” signs to go with them for a party earlier this week. (Since it was for personal use, we used this royalty-free image, dropped it into PowerPoint, and added the word “Bananas” on top of it in Nanum Brush Script font (the closest I could find in a rush.)
This is one of the EASIEST treats (and one of the healthiest, too!). It’s just sliced carrots, cream cheese, and black olives!
This is so cute, and it’s much more filling and waaaaay healthier than the candy corn that inspired this treat. It’s just chopped pineapple, mandarin oranges, and a dollop of yogurt (or you can use whipped cream).
Tip: Be sure to serve this in clear jars/glasses so the candy corn layers are on display!
Another super easy and fun treat. Each set of teeth is just 1/4 apple (with a section cut out) and slivered almonds. Nut allergies? Try substituting Rice Krispies cereal!
Read on for a cookie & marshmallow take on this treat.
This is a sweeter version of the Witches Teeth treat above. Make your own cookies, or get store-bought. Just break a cookie in half, lather on some red frosting, and stick about 8 mini marshmallows on as teeth. Add slivered almonds for the “fangs,” and you’re all set!
Tip: Want to make it super easy?! Use frozen pizza bagels instead of making your own mini pizzas 🙂
For a ghostly version of these, check out the next recipe below.
With just a few ingredients, you’ve got adorable ghost pizzas! It’s just mini bagels, slices of mozzarella cheese (cut a simple ghost shape with a paring knife), marinara or pizza sauce, and sliced olives for eyes!
Last, but absolutely not least, we have these cute donut spiders! Take pretzel twists, mini chocolate donuts, M&Ms, and some frosting or melted chocolate, and voila! You’ve got a deliciously fun donut-spider. Yum!
