My children still only want to trick or treat at a few houses on Halloween so I don’t mind making a few treats with them during October for some special fun! Here are a few of my favorites.
Nothing screams fall treat like a caramel apple. I love to slice up apples first and then set aside caramel sauce and toppings.
For a silly breakfast treat, take powdered donut holes and add eye sprinkles!
Brownies cut with cookie cutters and Reese’s pieces make for a great looking dessert.
We also played a Halloween touch and feel game. (Don’t worry, we didn’t have this food to go waste! It was immediately snacked upon after finishing!) We had some family over for this game and I blindfolded everyone and told them I had just come back from the cemetery. Tortilla pieces were handed to everyone and I described that as pieces of skin, banana chips were witches’ fingernails, baby carrots were fingers I had sliced off, pretzels were petrified rat tails, and room temperature olives were eyeballs. It’s great to see how people (even grown ups!) squirm and make hilarious faces when they’re holding these items.
And finally, we love to “Boo” our neighbors. We’ve been doing it for years, and this is what we included in our bags this year.
