Quick and Easy Halloween Treats

Are you struggling to get creative this Halloween? While finding a costume can be a burden, hosting a Halloween party is worse. Whether the annual bash is at your place or a friend’s house, everyone is expecting drinks and snacks. You can bring chips, or you can be impressive with Halloween-themed treats that will be enjoyed by many. Below I have listed different treats that will save you time, money, and effort!

1. Pumpkin Pretzels

This treat is quick and easy and only requires three ingredients! Purchase a bag of pretzels, orange candy melts, and green m&m’s. Heat a bowl of orange candy melts according to the package directions. Then, take a fork and dip the pretzels in the melted candy. Place the pretzels on wax paper and quickly put the green m&m atop the pretzel. The final result will look like this:

2. Nutter Butter Ghosts

First, make sure to remind people that this treat contains peanuts! Buy a pack of nutter butters, white chocolate chips, and mini milk or dark chocolate chips. Melt the white chocolate, and dip the nutter butter in it. Place this on wax paper and add three mini chocolate chips in an upside down triangle formation in order to add the eyes and mouth. If you don’t have enough, two chocolate chips for the eyes will suffice. This dessert will be presented like this:

3. Pumpkin Oreo Pops

Similar to the pumpkin pretzels, this concoction uses orange candy melts. You can enjoy these treats without making a mess, since the stick prevents your hands from getting dirty. In order to understand how these pops are created, be sure to check out the full video on Tastemade

4. Halloween Trail Mix

With this snack, anything goes. From cereal to candy, trail mix is always a crowd pleaser. If you are in a hurry, buy a bag of window pretzels, pumpkin candy corn, regular candy corn, Cheerios, and m&m’s. Pour all of them into a bowl and serve this halloween trail mix to the group!  

5. Apple Teeth

Even though this treat may seem childish, everyone loves a good laugh! Slice a red apple into four sections, leaving the core as a square shape. Then, slice each fourth into individual slices. Using a knife, spread peanut butter onto one side of two separate apple slices and add mini marshmallows in between. The recipe can be found here… bone apple teeth!

If you have the extra time, there are endless Halloween dessert ideas online. Whether you are looking to bake or simply mix ingredients together, the internet can be resourceful with providing variety. Many desserts are easy to make, but are they good? Do they please the crowd? Make any of the treats above and your friends will enjoy a very sweet Halloween!
