Top 10 Kid-Approved Halloween Treats

Do your kids love eating fun and festive Halloween treats? My son always comes home from school hangry. The moment that I get him from the school pick-up line, he is already asking for dinner even though dinner is several hours away.

I have been planning to make him some fun Halloween treats but I can’t decide which ones to make. There are just so many cute Halloween treats on Pinterest and we would love to have your vote which one that you like the best.

Mini Frankenstein Cheesecakes

Our family loves eating cheesecake for dessert and it is a treat that even my 7-year-old will devour without a second thought. So these mini Frankenstein cheesecakes are one of my favorites. However, finding a mini cheesecake pan might prove to be difficult on short notice. I don’t think a muffin tin would work very well in this instance. Bummer! If you have a mini cheesecake pan, you can find the recipe and tutorial here.  

Monster Bark

Making bark is a super easy treat that you can make for your kids for any holiday imaginable and for Halloween this Monster Bark is perfect. Bark only takes a few minutes and it is perfect as a last minute treat to take to your Halloween party. Find the recipe and directions here.  

Halloween Twinkie Chocolate Bats

Twinkies were one of my favorite desserts when I was growing up and my mom was never creative enough to dip them in chocolate either. Oh well, she made up for it with her other desserts. 🙂 These Halloween treats combine the best of both worlds chocolate and twinkies. I can hear my son’s reaction now, he would think these twinkie bats are the coolest thing ever. You can find out how to make them here.  

Pumpkin Oreos

Oreos are another family favorite and my son would love these cute pumpkin oreo cookies. The great thing about these cookies, you can use flavored Oreos like Pumpkin Spice, Traditional Oreos, Double Stuffed, or even Oreos with orange icing for Halloween. While these seem like a ton of work, I am sure there are tricks to make dunking them in chocolate easier. You can even get the kids to help you make these treats too. Find the tutorial here.  

Halloween Cake Pops

Cake pops are supposedly super easy to make but this mama hasn’t given it a try yet. I’ve just started trying to bake more homemade cakes and other goodies so maybe these will make the cut. I love these because they are so versatile and you can even vary the colors of chocolate to make different colored monsters too. Find three cake pop tutorials here along with some pro tips on how to make the perfect cake pops.

Oreo Cookie Spiders

These cute Oreo Cookie Spiders are the perfect treat to serve for a snack on Halloween to your kids. They are also an easy treat to take to your next Halloween party.

Halloween is a few days away and I still haven’t decided on which kid-friendly Halloween treats to make for my son. Every year he always tells me that Halloween is one of his favorite holidays and he always looks forward to it every year. I’m sure it is his favorite because Halloween is all about candy, pumpkins, fall activities, and Halloween treats.

Which of these kid-friendly Halloween treats do you think your kids would love for an after-school snack?
