I am really excited for my daughter’s Halloween shin-dig at Pre-K. Halloween parties were my FAVORITE at school. I’m taking the afternoon off of work so I can properly participate in her party.
Am I more excited than my 5 year old? Do I already know what outfit I will be wearing? Maybe. Likely. Yes.
I need to make something festive for her friends. Since there are a few restrictions these days (no peanuts – try to make semi-healthy) I decided to do a bit of a search. Here’s a list of 10 recipes I found that seem like good old kid friendly-Halloween fun treats.
Tell me, what are you making for your kids this Halloween?

YUMMY MUMMY PIZZA
This is one of my favorites. If you need to make a quick lunch or supper for your kids (and their friends) this is a perfect choice! These Yummy Mummy Pizza‘s are cute, simple and a nice alternative to the massive sugar high they will get later that night!
VAMPIRE BITES, CRUNCHY MUMMIES, and GOOGLY EYES
This is definitely a healthier alternative. Aren’t these guys cute – and so easy! I will likely be bringing in these vampire bites, crunchy mummies and googly eyes (to counter the sugar treats, clearly) this Halloween! There is also a bonus recipe in this post: Green Slime Smoothies!
Grain-Free BOOBERRY PUMPKIN MUFFINS
At first glance these Booberry Pumpkin Muffins simply seem like a fun fall breakfast but they are also a nutritional dream come true for moms of picky eaters! If anyone if your home has a gluten or dairy intolerance this is a great way for them to enjoy a baked treat as well. These muffins are FAR easier to make than other forms of gluten-free baking as the ingredients are fewer, less expensive, and easier to find.
SPOOKY SPIDER COOKIES
It’s the night before your kids’ Halloween party. And guess what. You FORGOT to make a treat! No worries – these simple, Spooky Spider Cookies will do the trick. Don’t you love these? I am 99% certain this is on my list of treats this year.
GREEN SLIME SMOOTHIES
While we’re on drinks – we must mention this guy! These Green Slime Smoothies are a great way to start your Halloween morning, or for a quick after-school pick me up before a night out trick or treating. Plus, it’s healthy (there’s spinach in there) which is always welcome on the biggest sugar day of the year!
HALLOWEEN SPRINKLE RICE KRISPIE TREATS
This needs no recipe. It’s just your usual Rice Krispie treat with lots (and lots) of sprinkles. My girls made these over the weekend. They loved being in the kitchen and poured just a few too many sprinkles into the mix. But we didn’t mind. Shape your treats into a pumpkin or use your favorite Halloween cookie cutter for extra spooky treats!
BLACK CAT COOKIES
We indeed have a black cat named Buddy. Our girls LOVE him. This is absolutely perfect to celebrate Buddy’s day! Black Cat Cookies might just have to make an appearance on Halloween night!
APPLE CIDER MINI MUFFINS
This is one of my favorite recipes in our recipe journal. These apple cider mini-muffins have been a huge hit with my girls. Plus, they love to pour the batter into the muffin tins and of course – enjoy stirring. This is a good one to try for both kids and adults!
5 WAYS TO EAT A CARAMEL APPLE
Finally, I don’t think we can have fall without some type of caramel apple. How do you eat yours? On a stick? All cut up? With Sprinkles? My girls love to add “extras” to theirs. Here’s 5 different ways to eat your favorite caramel apple this season!
