If you are planning a Halloween party, there is a good chance that food will be involved. However, with Halloween being a night of creeps and spooks, you might want to get a little more creative with your Halloween treat ideas. Here are some ideas for how to incorporate a Halloween theme in your kitchen
Halloween comes at the end of October, a time when there are plenty of fresh harvest items to enjoy. You can add these to your Halloween treats for affordable delights. One of the favorite Halloween traditions is the carving of the pumpkin which is often called the Jack-o-lantern. And as anyone who has ever carved a pumpkin knows, the glowing creation on your front steps on Halloween night leaves behind a pile of slimy pumpkin guts. However, you can use this pumpkin flesh to create delicious Halloween treats. Here are some Halloween treat ideas: Pumpkin cooks up well into pies, cookies, muffins, and soups that you can serve for your Halloween meal. And seasoned and roasted pumpkin seeds are a popular snack. You can always experiment with flavors to create your own delicious meals and tasty treats.
Another great harvest produce around Halloween is the apple. Apple Halloween treat ideas work as fresh, candied, and baked into cakes, muffins, and pies. And, there is always applesauce. If you are in need of some game ideas for your Halloween party, bobbing for apples has always been a long time favorite.
Other Halloween Treat Ideas
Of course, your ghouls and goblins are probably not thinking about healthy fruit when they are wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. For many, Halloween is as much about the candy as it is about putting on your make-believe costume. So you will want to have plenty of sweet Halloween treats on hand as well.
Cookies are always a favorite with kids of all ages. You can use your favorite cookie dough flavor, and then shape it into fun Halloween shapes using cookie cutters. Bats, ghosts, and jack-o-lanterns/pumpkins all work well for shaped cookies as Halloween treat ideas. Or, you can choose to decorate your favorite cookies using orange, black, and white frosting and/or sprinkles. If you are pressed for time, pre-shaped holiday cookies are often available at your local grocer.
If you are looking for other Halloween treat ideas, popcorn is always fun. You can take your favorite popcorn ball recipe and fashion ghosts instead of balls. Add a few pieces of candy for eyes and a mouth, and you have a fun treat. Or, put fresh-popped popcorn into disposable plastic gloves, with a piece of candy at the finger tip, to create monster hands.
You can always turn your kid's favorite foods into Halloween treats with a little creativity. Food coloring can turn ordinary foods into creepy monster dishes. Decorate cupcakes with licorice legs and candy eyes to create spiders. Or simply get a little creative with how you serve everyday items to design your own spooky feast. With a little work and a little creativity, you can come up with your own Halloween treat ideas for your little tricksters.
