Tasty Halloween Treats To Make With The Kids

Halloween is fast approaching, and with restrictions in place, many parents seem to be running out of activities to entertain the little ones. However, we think now is the perfect time to book a baking date with the kiddos in the kitchen and create some spooky sweet treats that are super kid-friendly. 

If you're looking for some inspiration, here is a round-up of some of our scary-good Halloween treats and spooktacular snack ideas, perfect for kids (and adults) of all ages. 

Halloween Candy Bark

Anything with white chocolate instantly gets my vote. This dessert by Delish looks insanely delicious and best of all; you can mix and match to make it your own. All you need is white chocolate, Halloween themed sprinkles and some food colouring.

Sausage Mummies

How cool are these Sausage Mummies from My Fussy Eater? These will make a tasty addition to any household this October and maybe even the lunch box. They are super easy to make using sausages, puff pastry and edible eyes.

Pretzel Broomsticks

These are cute little yummy snacks and most definitely a winner with any cheese-loving child. To make these witch broomstick Halloween treats, you will need string cheese sticks, small pretzel sticks and fresh spinach cut into small strips.

Pumpkin Treats

Cooking Classy is keeping it simple with these easy peasy traditional Rice Krispie cakes. To recreate this creepy creation, add some orange food colouring to your usual bun recipe and add a pretzel stick and whip up some green fondant.

Rice Krispie Monsters

Or you can change things up entirely and try these awesome treat monsters using different coloured candy melts and edible candy eyes just like One Little Project did. These bring my candy eye obsession to a whole new level.

Ghost Pretzels

Everyone loves pretzels, right? The kids will love these white chocolate Halloween pretzels treats and again like all recipes mentioned above, it's perfect for kids as young as three and four. You could even change up the colour and make mini Frankenstein Halloween pretzels too.
