Who is having a Halloween party? Even a school class one or special morning breakfast will do for some perfect Halloween treats! My kids look forward to sweet treats for the holiday and they especially love to get in the kitchen and help make them. It’s almost like a craft for them! So I’m on the hunt for some easy Halloween treats that are both sweet and a few healthier snack options for spooky season. When I think of Halloween and fall, I think of pumpkin spice, candy corn, candy eyes, black cats, food coloring and so much more. Here’s a list of a bunch of full recipes to try out for some simple Halloween desserts for family events, favorite treats or just plain old fun this Halloween night!
