Halloween is just around the corner. That means Halloween parties at both the office and in your kids classrooms. You may have even been invited to a costume party one weekend this month or maybe you are throwing a Halloween party yourself. Of course for each of these events, you need festive Halloween treats to share at these fun little shindigs.
I’ve put together a list of Halloween treats that are both spooky and delicious! They are perfect to bring to the office where everyone will be impressed with your creativity and holiday spirit.

MONSTER EYE BALLS RICE KRISPIE BITES
Rice Krispie treats are a classic kids dessert that adults love too. Simply add some food coloring to the marshmallow mixture before adding the Rice Krispies and instead of making them into bars, roll them into balls and add eyes. Now that’s a kid-friendly dessert that is sure to be a hit!

HOCUS POCUS CUPCAKES
When I first saw these, I thought they looked a bit labor intensive but they aren’t! They are just frosted cupcakes with gumballs on top and a pretzel stick poked in! You get a lot of visual bang for your low effort buck with this one. Plus, the Hocus Pocus theme is more unique than it’s jack-o-lantern, ghost, and skeleton counterparts.

BEWITCHED M&M COOKIES
These delicious cookies are made from scratch and before baking, you just push some M&M’s into the dough. Really simple to make on the fly. This recipe is good to have handy because at one point or another, we have all been given last minute notice that there is a party tomorrow and you are expected to bring something. Awesome.

HALLOWEEN CHOCOLATE PRETZEL BITES
These pretzels look so gourmet and tedious to make but they’re not! Just dip the pretzels in colored chocolate and let cool. Dip a fork in other various contrasting colored chocolates and run them across the pretzels for this cool paint splattered look. Did I mention they are delicious as well as being pretty?
You can display them in an open dish like in the picture to be placed out for party goers to enjoy. You could also bag them up and tie with festive ribbon to be given out as party favors or Halloween treats for your childs classroom party.

EASY HALLOWEEN MARSHMALLOW POPS
These marshmallow pops are so striking and eye-catching that you don’t immediately think about how easy they are to make! Really, all you need are large marshmallows, sticks, melted chocolate in whichever colors you like, and sprinkles to dip them in afterwards. So simple!
These look fabulous for Halloween but you could re-imagine this dessert for all kinds of other holidays and themes! Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, or Fourth of July for example. You could also match them to a themed birthday party or even a bridal shower and baby shower.

BLOODY HALLOWEEN APPLES
I love a good candied or caramel apple. This one is white chocolate covered with some shimmering gel frosting for the blood. I could just imagine a spooky tray of these sitting out at a wicked Halloween party creeping everyone out. They really lend to the mood.

HALLOWEEN CHOCOLATE CHERRY HAND PIES
I LOVE these sinister little hand pies! Not only are they super creepy, as in I can’t look away creepy, but they look like they taste so rich and yummy!
The recipe offers variations on the cherry filling to switch up the flavors. If you decided to use these for a party, you could try the Nutella or pumpkin filling options as well to give your guests some variety.

CANDY CORN CARAMEL POPCORN
There isn’t quite anything like homemade caramel corn. Add in some candy corn and M&M’s, and you have yourself a delectable treat that is perfect in a great big bowl or divvied up into goodie bags of yum to be handed out. Halloween treats never tasted so good!

HALLOWEEN POPCORN WITCH HANDS
These witch hands are probably the easiest recipe on here but they sure do pack a visual punch! Pop up some popcorn. It could even be microwave popcorn. Spray it with colored food spray, and after inserting a red Hot Tamale candy in each finger hole, fill gloves with colored popcorn and tie off.
Kids would love making these spooky Halloween treats for their classmates.

HALLOWEEN CAULDRON CUPCAKES
These cupcakes are actually easier than they look. When I first saw them, I wondered if they were baked inside the little plastic cauldrons and if so, how did they not melt? Turns out the cauldrons are silicone and the cupcakes are baked as usual in a cupcake paper liner, cooled, and THEN placed into the silicone cauldron. Decorate with green frosting, a pretzel “stirring stick” and Halloween themed sprinkles to top it all off!
These cupcakes would be great to send with your child to school. Every kid loves a cupcake, plus they get a free little cauldron out of it to keep. Little Jack or Jill would be the coolest kid in the class!
