If you’re looking for creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky (but not all together ooky😉) Halloween snacks for kids, here’s a list of recipes that you can whip up in practically no time at all. From healthy Halloween snacks to good ol’ sweets, this list of Halloween food for kids has you completely covered this year!
Halloween is BIG in our house. Really big. From the costumes, to the decorations, to the games, to the food…we tend to go all out and have a blast doing it every year!
Halloween is one of my most favorite times of the year! Not only does it mean that I get to have some of my kid’s candy (no judgment – we call it the “Parent Tax”), but it also means that I have an excuse to make up fun and funky food creations in the kitchen, as well!
While it might be normal in some households to make eyeball foods and spider treats throughout the year (more fun for them!), our household usually only participates in this during the month of October. What we lose out on during the rest of the year, we more than make up for in those few weeks!
If you’re as excited as I am about getting ready for Halloween, here are some awesome Halloween snacks that your kids are going to absolutely love.
Spooky Good Sweet Halloween Snacks for Kids
Halloween is so much fun, why relegate all the fun to costumes? It’s time to have a spooky good time with snacks!
You’re going to love these sweet ideas for Halloween treats…
Popcorn Pumpkin | Hodgepodge Hippie
Not everything with Halloween has to be spooky or unhealthy, right? This adorable Popcorn Pumpkin is a great healthy Halloween snack, and it’s also perfect for cuddling up to watch your favorite Halloween movies.
Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups | I Can Teach My Child
Oreo and pudding dirt is my favorite kind of dirt! In fact, the first time I saw Oreo “dirt”, I couldn’t believe it was actually Oreo cookies! Whip up your own “dirt” dessert with a Halloween theme, by making adorable Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups.
Halloween Sugar Cookie Cake | Lil’ Luna
What’s more fun than a cookie cake? Nothing! You can make this with festive Halloween colors to make it even better (as if it really needed that!).
Make a Halloween sugar cookie cake for your next gathering of family or friends because it feeds a crowd…
Halloween Muddy Buddy Mix | Boys Ahoy
Put a Halloween spin on the classic muddy buddies recipe by adding candy corn and Reese’s pieces. You’ll get all the fun colors and flavors in one bite. I bet you can’t stop at just one handful, though!
Halloween Donuts | Hodgepodge Hippie
In our house, we love to eat donuts at any time of the day. We don’t need an excuse! However, if we did, these Halloween donuts would be perfect.
Harvest Caramel Corn | Two Sisters Crafting
Doesn’t this harvest caramel corn look divine? What’s better than creamy caramel, salty popcorn, and sweet chocolate mixed together? Not much that I can think of but, it just might be my obsession with Rolos that seals the deal for me.
And to be honest, I’d probably be picking out all the Rolos and M&M’s and eating those first!
Caramel Apple Slices | Domestically Blissful
Candy apples are yummy but kind of a pain – and so messy! Instead of candy apples, try caramel apple slices on a stick.
You get more sweetness per square inch of apple, plus they are so much easier to make and eat, and really, who doesn’t love that?
Oreo Bats | Hodgepodge Hippie
Who says that bats have to be spooky? These Oreo bats are just too darn cute to pass up! Plus, they’re super simple for kids to make. One thing’s for sure–your kids will go “batty” over them!
Incredibly Fun Savory Healthy Halloween Snacks
Not all snacks have to be desserts! Let’s bring on the “scary savory” (healthier) Halloween snack recipes. Still festive–but just in case you (or the kids) need a little more substance and a little less sugar!
Eyeball Tacos | Life Family and Fun
You just might never look at tacos ever again once you make up a batch of these eyeball tacos (I know I won’t!). It’s a very creative idea with almost effortless follow-through since the work is already done by making tacos!
Who knew that black olives could play such a dual role?!
Mummy Hotdogs | Home. Made. Interest.
Here’s a classic that we’ve been making for years! It’s a dinner that kids actually WANT to eat before trick-or-treating. One bite, and you’ll forget that the night is about to be full of tricks and treats.
Halloween “Witch” Guacamole | Confetti And Bliss
Oh goodness, this wicked witch guacamole is packed with yumminess, and makes a creepy centerpiece! Kids will love eating this witch’s face. (Things you never actually think you’ll say in a sentence…haha!)
Witch Hat Calzones | Jeannie’s Tried and True Recipes
Speaking of witches, how about these adorable witch hat calzones? They’re a little less spooky, and a little more delicious! Combine them with mummy hotdogs and wicked witch guacamole for an Aggie Cromwell-approved Halloweentown meal!
These Halloween snacks recipes are seriously just the cutest, but they’re also filling and delicious. I love that there are creepy AND not-so-scary options (for kids of all ages!).
I just might start making them a little bit earlier this year (so we can enjoy them longer) because I’m so pumped and excited for Halloween.(We should do the same with Christmas treats, too, after the witches fly on the 31st!)
“Witch” Halloween treat are you going to try first?!
