Some of you may remember the week before last when I, for reasons unknown, volunteered to provide about 6 dozen homemade treats for my kiddo’s Halloween parties. Well, I did a lot of Pinterest searching for the perfect goodies (you know, easy, cheap, and makes me look like the cookie queen). I actually found a TON of stuff that I need to try at some point, but thought I’d share five of my fave’s that I found during my search for those of you who may still need some last minute treat ideas.
Witches Hats: I love these because they’re super cute and while I found them on the Betty Crocker website, you don’t have to be Betty Crocker (or even a distant cousin) to make these babies turn out fabulous. The kids can even pitch in with these without fear of messing them up too badly! They’re made completely out of pre-made items so totally convenient but still not something you can buy off the shelf so there’s a hint of “homemade” as well. Winner all the way around here! Get the instructions here.
Jack Skellington No Bake Dessert: We’re huge Disney fans and hubby is especially fond of Jack and Sally so this one was definitely one to re-pin in my house. The recipe includes ding-dongs and sprinkles so you know right there it’s a winner. Again there’s the convenience of being no-bake, but so unique everyone will be asking you how you did it. For the details on how to make these awesome treats that are sure to be a huge hit, visit Crazy About My Baybah.
Witches Brooms: Have some pretzel stick and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini’s? Then you have witches brooms. All you need to pretty them up is a little frosting to keep everything in place if you so choose and boom! Cute as heck, super easy treat that all the kids will love!
Halloween Ghosties: This is another three ingredient treat using pre-package cookies to start but adding something a little extra to make them super cute and unique. In addition to the peanut butter sandwich cookies the only other ingredients you need are white chocolate chips and some mini chocolate chips for eyes. For complete instructions check out All Recipes.
Marshmallow Pops: If you can come up with some giant marshmallows, straws, and some chocolate for dipping, then you can make these super cute treats. Check out Kraft Foods for complete instructions and additional ideas.

Yes it seemed like a TON when I was think about what I had to make! Thanks to Pinterest it’s not going to be so bad after all 🙂

Such cute ideas – I especially liked the one using Hersheys kisses for hats!

The witches hats and brooms are super cute — I’m thinking you could even make both together for a super cute and easy pair that goes together!

You might be the popular house on the block this Halloween! They looked super easy and fun to do! I’m sure my kids would like to help me decorate these!

I love anything that I can throw together and not have to bake myself! One of the easiest ideas I’ve seen is drawing a Jack-o-Lantern face on an orange or on the plastic wrapper of a fruit cup 🙂

Those are really easy. I have a Halloween party to attend Thursday night. I think the Witches brooms are going with me.

When I saw the picture of the witches hats, the initial ingredients popped out at me right away. I would never have thought to pair any of those things together to make hats, though! People are so creative!
Alison saysOctober 29, 2013 at 9:09 am
I know right! As I came across some of these ideas I keep going “why the heck can’t I think of this stuff!”

I love these and I love that they are simple. The Halloween yummies really do need to be easy. I find it is a very full season; there’s no time for extreme time in the kitchen. Have a great Tuesday!

Nice! I wish I read this sooner LOL We are having a Halloween party (kind of) on Thursday for the students and this would have been so cool!
