Halloween Treat ideas to enjoy with this activity
If you are planning halloween activities for the kids, you may want some treats! The following treat ideas are themed for Halloween and can all be fun for kids to enjoy. It could be an added bonus (maybe ;)) to have the kids help make these or you could make ahead of time.
Witch Hat Cupcakes
If you are going to make cupcakes for Halloween, whether as dessert for your kids, to bring to their school, or for a Halloween party, witch hat cupcakes are a really fun idea. You start with a standard cupcake and frosting. Doing a chocolate cupcake with a bold purple or green frosting is good for a witch cupcake. You will then take a mini ice cream cone, dip it in melted chocolate (or not if you prefer), and turn it upside down, then place it on top of the cupcake.
Halloween Snack Mix
This option is to make your own snack mix, which is similar to Chex mix, but with a Halloween theme. This snack mix should start with any type of dry cereal you like. Chex Mix really is one of the best options, but be creative and pick anything you want. You will then add in other snack pieces that you think complement it, such as mini pretzels, candy corns, sunflower seeds that have been roasted, and bite-size Halloween candy pieces for some added sweetness.
This Halloween treat is similar to peanut brittle, but it is made for Halloween. You start by melting chocolate, then pouring it onto a sheet of parchment paper that is lining a small baking sheet. Just spread the chocolate around until it is even, making sure it doesn’t run off the sides. Before it hardens, add some items for the bark, such as pieces of candy corn, broken M&M’s, pretzel pieces, peanuts, and little pieces of other candy. Now put it in the fridge to harden the chocolate. Once hardened, you can break up the bark into smaller pieces.
If you want a simple snack that is easy to make, just combine round twist pretzels and melted chocolate. You want to have orange chocolate for Halloween, so take white chocolate and add some orange food coloring to it. Melt the chocolate, then dip your pretzels in and place on parchment paper. The round pretzels will make them look like pumpkins. When the chocolate is not yet hard, use a small candy piece on top for the stem, and sprinkle some black, orange, and green sprinkles on top.
Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats
To make these treats, you will start with a traditional Rice Krispie treat recipe and add green food color. Make the treats, and then cut them into more of rectangles instead of squares. Use frosting to paint on the Frankenstein face, add some candies if you’d like and you’re all done!
