If you’re looking for some delicious and spooky 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!
Do you have your decorations up or your Halloween costume planned out yet? Would you be surprised if I said we already did?
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 some fun and funky food in the kitchen as well.
While it might be normal in some households to make up 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 some spooky (and cute) fun with some food snacks!

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 these adorable Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups.[wprm-recipe-roundup-item link=”https://www.icanteachmychild.com/pumpkin-patch-dirt-cups/” name=”Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups” summary=”These individually portioned fall-inspired dirt cups would be a delicious treat to serve as a snack or at a fall party!” image=”-1″ image_url=”https://www.icanteachmychild.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/IMG_4213-650×975.png”]

Make a Halloween sugar cookie cake for your next gathering of family or friends because it feeds a crowd.[wprm-recipe-roundup-item link=”https://lilluna.com/halloween-sugar-cookie-cake/” name=”Sugar Cookie Cake” summary=”Simple and delicious Halloween Sugar Cookie Cake with a homemade cream cheese frosting.

Halloween Donuts | Hodgepodge Hippie
In our house, we love to eat donuts at any time of the day. We don’t need an excuse to eat them. 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.[wprm-recipe-roundup-item link=”https://www.twosisterscrafting.com/harvest-caramel-corn/” name=”Harvest Caramel Corn” summary=”Harvest Caramel Corn is a great fall treat or Thanksgiving dessert the features salty popcorn, creamy caramel and sweet chocolate.

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?[wprm-recipe-roundup-item link=”https://domesticallyblissful.com/caramel-apple-slices/” name=”Caramel Apple Slices” summary=”Caramel Apple Slices are the easiest way to enjoy your favorite treat this fall!” image=”-1″ image_url=”https://domesticallyblissful.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Caramel-Apple-Slices-are-a-delicious-twist-on-a-fall-classic-that-are-easier-to-eat-enjoy-at-parties-or-just-for-fun.jpg”]
