Try these easy recipes and serve up some not-so-spooky Halloween Treats for Kids
We have Halloween a rule, no trick or treating until after you’ve eaten your dinner. But it’s always SO hard to eat your dinner when the excitement of going door to door collecting candy is there. Easy fix – we make our dinner exciting too and serve up some not-so-spooky halloween treats!
With little ones you can’t go too spooky or too gross with your food creations or they won’t eat it – but just the right about of fun foods can have them gobbling it all up and asking for seconds!
Fun Halloween Foods
You can even turn every-day foods into Halloween Treats – Spaghetti? Monster brains! Bread Sticks? Witches Brooms! Blue Corn Ships with dip? Bat Wings!
I usually skip the full sit down dinner on Halloween – they’re just too wiggly! Instead we like to do heavy appetizers and finger foods.
Appetizers are great because they can snack while getting ready for the big event and when they come back from trick-or-treating it’s easy to grab a bite and fill up before devouring a bucket of candy.
You can’t forget some fruits and veggies to go along side your tasty snacks.
A large bunch of black grapes is always appropriately labeled “goblin eyes” and a small pumpkin makes the perfect bowl for ranch dip to go with a veggie tray. Small Tangerines make great Jack-o-Lanterns too!
We don’t usually do dessert on Halloween – because, you know, CANDY! But we DO do fun Halloween Desserts throughout the month of October.
This Spooky Spider cake really WOW’d them at the school Halloween Carnival and even one a 1st place prize ribbon. If you are looking for quick and easy, though, you must try these Pumpkin Patch Pudding cups!
