Delicious Halloween Treats
Today, I thought that I would share with you some of my favorite Halloween Treats that I have collect over the past few years. Why are these my favorite? Well, because they are easy. 😉 I loooove the easy stuff! ()
Also today, check out the features from last weeks link party! And keep spreading the word, so that this link party can grow into a super successful endeavor!
Wicked Black Apples
My son just loves these because they look like the Evil Queens apples (Once Upon a Time). So, I have been making these the past few years. All it takes is:
- 3/4 cup water Dyed black with 1 tbsp of black food coloring
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup of light corn syrup
Boil ingredients until it reaches 300 degrees, then dip . Place on greased parchment paper to cool. (If you can’t find black food coloring, a mixture of red, yellow, and blue will produce a dark gray. Just dip apples 2-3 times and the color will intensify to a black).

Wickedly Cute Cookies
Ok, I’m not a pastry chef, and I don’t pretend to be. I prefer to buy my sweets from the store, but I wanted to throw something together for the holidays. These cookies were so easy. The frosting is orange Funfetti icing by Pillbury, and I picked up the mustaches and eyes at Kroger’s decorating isle. I also used a few mini chocolate chips on a few, just to show a different variation.
Wickedly Healthy Snack
For a healthier version of Halloween treats, I just peeled a few mini oranges and stuck a piece of celery into the middle to make mini pumpkins. Most kids like oranges, and anytime you can make food look like art, they seem to like it even more. Tip: Don’t put the celery into the oranges until right before you hand them out. Otherwise, the celery flavor will permeate the orange and it won’t go over so well. (Learned that one the hard way) 😉
You’ve Been Booed!
A favorite activity for my boys is to “Boo” the neighbors. If you are not familiar with the concept, it is a great way to get the kids involved in an activity that encourages them to give rather than to receive. I like that this can be incorporated into the Halloween holiday and not just for Christmas.
The idea is to create a snack pack of goodies. Ring your neighbors doorbell, leave the bag and the card from above, and run away. They then continue the fun by “booing” two other neighbors. Once you have been “booed,” you tape the image to your door or window to let everyone know that you have already received a goody bag.
If you want to get this fun game started in your neighborhood, I am providing this free printable available in my Free Printable’s Gallery. It is just one of many great printables that are available. Get your free printables now!
